All-New Aston Martin DB11 Has A Tall Order To Fill

It’s a fact that Aston’s all-new DB11 not only marks the beginning of a new era, it’s also perhaps the most important model in the brand’s long history.

Aston Martin’s Second Century plan begins now, with the company armed with a brand new aluminum platform, more powerful yet more fuel efficient turbocharged engines and the cutting edge electrical architecture courtesy of the recent deal made with Daimler.

In terms of market positioning, the new DB11 replaces the DB9 as the brand’s big 2+2 GT car. Power comes from an in-house developed and also new twin-turbo 5.2-litre V12 engine, producing now less than 600hp (608PS) and 516lb ft (700Nm) of torque sent to the rear via an eight-speed ZF automatic gearbox. 0-62mph comes in 3.9 seconds while top speed is set at 200 mph (320 km/h).

The interior is a massive improvement over the previous generations, featuring a pair of modern TFT displays, a 12-inch for the instrument cluster and an 8-inch for the infotainment system controlled by a touchpad on the center console. As you would expect from an Aston Martin, every material used inside is of the highest quality with the company offering to its customers a real depth of customising options to tailor their cars to their tastes.

Will that be enough for Aston Martin? Autocar delivers their first driving impressions in the video linked below.
