DB11 is the first product launched under the company’s ‘Second Century’ plan. It is an authentic, dynamic sporting GT in the finest Aston Martin tradition.
DB11 re-imagines the relationship between form and function with a series of fresh design signatures. Foremost amongst these is the front-hinging clamshell bonnet, distinctive LED headlights and accentuated lines of the iconic Aston Martin grille. The profile is equally dramatic, thanks to the roof strakes that flow uninterrupted from A-pillar to C-pillar. The clean lines continue at the rear, with a sloping decklid that smoothly blends into boldly sculpted tail-lights to create a new and unmistakable graphic. Innovative aerodynamics play their part in this aesthetic revolution with clever management of airflow both over and through the bodywork aiding stability while preserving the DB11′s uncluttered surfaces.
Front-end lift is reduced by the gill-like curlicue which releases high-pressure air from inside the wheel arch via a concealed vent within the redesigned side-strake. Meanwhile, rear-end lift is reduced by the Aston Martin AeroBlade, a virtual spoiler fed by discreet air intakes located at the base of each C-pillar. Air is ducted through the bodywork, before venting as a jet of air from the aperture in the rear decklid. Like every Aston Martin, the heart of the DB11 is found beneath the bonnet, though unlike any Aston Martin before it, the DB11′s heart is a 5.2-litre twin-turbocharged V12. Designed in-house, this new engine develops 608PS (600BHP) and 700Nm of torque, making DB11 the most powerful production DB model ever.
