Jay Leno Takes 2017 Aston Martin DB11 To Willow Springs, Ex-Stig Joins In


The , or what Jay Leno calls the ‘most famous car in the world’, recently met up with a Vantage S driven by Ben Collins on the Willow Springs Raceway.

Famous or not, the DB11 is looking extremely popular nowadays, especially after it was unleashed on the Goodwood Hillclimb last month, and Jeremy Clarkson also took one to Mugello while filming his brand new automotive show The Grand Tour.

With 600 HP and 700 Nm (516-lb-ft) of torque coming from its 5.2-liter twin-turbo V12 engine, it can accelerate to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.9 seconds, before maxing out at 322 km/h (200 mph) – way more than the DB9.

Unfortunately, Leno was instructed not to push the DB11 prototype on the track, which made Collin’s efforts of putting on a show, a little bit redundant.

Throughout the video, Leno also gets to learn more about what it took to build the car and also about its excellent high-speed aerodynamic properties, which were achieved despite the DB11’s lack of a large rear spoiler.
