The new aluminum architecture of the DB11 really shows the style and brings it further away from the DB9 version that it is replacing. With a flowing and handsome bonded aluminum structure, the Aston Martin DB11 boasts more interior space and seats in the rear that may prove to actually be useful—as opposed to the much smaller options in the DB9. However, it is the aerodynamics of this beauty that make it really stand out, with innovation under the surface that won’t quit.
The Aston Martin engineers have outdone themselves; with a new multilink rear suspension, a new aerodynamics system that directs airflow up 90 degrees to deliver many of the benefits of a wing without requiring the physical structure. When you add in Daimler’s collaboration on the interior of the vehicle, you’ve got some big options to live up to. Powered armrest, immaculately-finished interior and an advanced Bang & Olufsen audio system round out the interior of this modern cruiser.
V-12 that Hums
Fortunately, Aston Martin hasn’t completely gotten rid of the supercharged 5.2L V-12 engine that delivers 600 horsepower and 516 ft-lb of torque, although it has moved from the previous naturally aspirated engine to a new unit that was engineered specifically for this version.
All-natural materials abound in the cockpit of this cruiser, and no details have been spared to provide the driver and passengers with the ultimate in craftsmanship and state-of-the-art technology. Even the luggage compartment gets in on the upgrade, with a larger space available that will fit several golf bags and child’s safety seats and still leave room for some luggage. Additional legroom and headroom have been built into the cabin as well.
It’s the details that matter; and details are what makes Aston Martin one of the finest vehicle manufac.turers in the world. From the aerodynamic design of the exterior, to the attention to detail in the interior, this stunning machine is ready for the road.
