Aston Martin DB11 Review – Motoring Power & Classic CoolLast Updated: August 1, 2018
Our Aston Martin DB11 review covers the design and driving performance highlights of a car that exudes iconic class and truly delivers where it counts—under the hood.
Our Aston Martin DB11 review highlights the ways in which the iconic grand tourer coupe continues to fly the flag for serious motoring, while underlining the brand’s cachet of classic cool garnered from the use of earlier Aston Martins in classic James Bond 007 movies.
It’s a very, very cool car indeed, a fact that is underlined by its ‘brand penetration’ into a broad range of accessories, including beautiful scale models; iconic wall art and prints; branded & engraved key fobs and specalised designer lighting.
The DB11 is an extremely impressive follow-up to the world-famous DB9, enhancing the brand’s high-end pop culture appeal, but also delivering where it ultimately counts, under the hood. This is the first turbocharged series-production Aston Martin, with an engine delivering 600 brake horsepower and acceleration from 0-100kmh in 3.9 seconds.
In our Aston Martin DB11 review, we select the design and performance highlights of the car, which is available in the UK from approximately £154,90o.
Exterior & Design
The DB11’s iconic looks include a new grille, bonnet and the innovative Aston Martin Aeroblade, which harnesses airflow, not only enhancing the car’s stability, but visually enhancing the car’s standout reputation.
More of a reinterpretation than a redesign,the new DB11 remains instantly and recognisably Aston Martin, with contemporary lines and features emphasising the classic silhouette, and new LED heads and taillights conveying an exciting contemporary edge.
Interior & Comfort
No Aston Martin DB11 review would be complete without details of the driver comforts, and indeed, the DB11 has a luxurious cabin, notable for its natural materials, craftsmanship, and state-of-the-art infotainment technology, providing the ultimate in comfort and convenience. The interior can be completely modified to your unique preference, with a generous palette of colours and an array of detailing options throughout.
The DB11 is a thrill for all the senses. The sumptuous, sporty textures of the interior would be any driver’s pleasure, while the sound and feel of the powerful twin-turbocharged V12 engine is sheer motoring excitement. The DB11’s redesigned chassis, suspension, steering and electronics and suspension, with its adaptive damping, ensure that the driver comfort and convenience factor is more than matched by the performance.
