The Aston’s £155000 replacement for the iconic DB9 has more power, extra cabin space and gorgeous contemporary lines.
A great replacement for the iconic has finally been revealed. This is an Aston Martin DB11, and it can available to order with priced about £154,900.
With a new 600bhp twin-turbo V12 is designed in-house, the fresh contemporary styling and a revised body structure that is offers more rooms for the rear seat passengers and driver, the new Aston 2+2 grand tourer certainly ticks all the boxes for the myriad fans of Aston.
After months of spy shots and speculation, at headquarter in Gaydon, Warks, the Auto Express was given the lowdown on the car, before public debut.
The DB11 is considered as the most significant model of Aston since the iconic DB9 is debuted in 2003. It is the most efficient, most powerful and “most dynamically gifted” DB model in the history of company. This year, it will be exhibited in showrooms.
The brand is moving in a new design direction at the front part of the car after a decade of similarly styled models. The product development director Ian Minards said that this differentiation was so important during the design process.
The Aston Martin DB10 : Brand new LED headlights combined with the tone for future models and the bold grille stretches through the nose. A clamshell bonnet removes unwanted shutlines that give the front end a classy and clean finish.
It is pushed and caught past the B-pillar across what Aston called an ‘Aeroblade’ in the bodywork that send it out the back and under the bootlid, and remove the need for the rear wing.
The thing lurks beneath the bonnet that is important as all the fancy aero. A sizeable boost in the fuel economy and the twin-turbo version is expected to provide the same thrills but with added flexibility while the purists will mourn the demise of the naturally aspirated V12 of Aston.
The history from Aston Martin DB1 to DB11:
The car has 700Nm and 600bhp of torque, the most powerful DB ever – the DB11 can reach 200mph and do 0-62mph in 3.9s. The cylinder deactivation will reduce CO2 emissions.
The engine is combined with a GT, an eight-speed ZF automatic gearbox, Sport and Sport+ driving modes that allow the owners to transform personality of their car at the flick of a switch. The DB11 receives a dynamic torque vectoring and new electric power-steering rack that Minards says provides true sports car agility and exemplary ride comfort. There is an eight-inch screen that is controlled via an optional touchpad and Mercedes-sourced scroll wheel inside. From the Daimler, the interface is taken too, so it looks familiar, enough to feel special.
Other technology concludes Olufsen stereo and a Bang, auto-park assist and 360-degree camera. The passenger space also is improved, the front wheels is pushed forward by 65mm, it ensures more room rear and in the front of the cabin. The Isofix child-seat mounted in the back.
The potential owners could change everything from the colour of the exterior roof panels to the interior.
