DB11 is the brand’s first all-new car in nearly fourteen years and the front runner in Aston Martin’s second century plan. Designed as a replacement for the DB9, the DB11 is a sporting Grand Tourer that rivals competitive models such as the Bentley Continental GT.

Heavily influenced by the DB10 concept that starred in the recent James Bond Spectre film, the new addition sets the tone for future Aston Martin models. It’s not just a pretty face either, as the flowing lines hide clever aerodynamic additions that cheats the wind to deliver both downforce and reduced drag.

At its’ heart an all-new twin-turbocharged 5.2-litre V12, delivering a whopping 600bhp and a muscular 700Nm of torque. As you’d expect, performance is electric with the 0-62mph sprint taking just 3.9 seconds, what is less expected is that DB11 is the cleanest and most fuel efficient DB ever produced.

Yet it’s the way the car rides and handles that really impresses, in GT mode it flows over bumps with a supple poise, if your appetite demands more intense exhilaration then switch to Sport Plus mode to truly awaken the sports car within. DB11 displays remarkable agility, weighing in at 1770kgs and with a near perfect weight distribution it is lighter than the Bentley Continental GT by more than 500kgs leaving it lumbering behind in DB11’s wake.

Factor in a cabin that mixes cutting edge style with top notch materials and a bespoke finish, and you have one of the fastest and most desirable long distance Grand Tourers money can buy.
