The iconic DB series from Aston Martin have always held up to their fame. It’s been 12 years since the launch of the DB9 and the British carmaker is finally ready to come out with successor – the Aston Martin DB11. The car was showcased today at the Geneva Motor Show 2016 for its first public appearance was truly one of the best showstoppers at the event. The DB11 is based on the Aston Martin DBX concept and the DB10 from the James Bond movie, ‘Spectre’.
Giving us a preview of the future of DB series, the new Aston Martin in town speaks volumes of style, aggression and speed. It is based on a new design language and is the first Aston Martin to come out of the Aston Martin and Mercedes-AMG partnership. While the design is new, a number of the style cues have been picked up from the aforementioned DB10 and DBX along with of course, the DB9.
At the front the car comes with the traditional Aston Martin-style grille that has now grown bigger. The car also gets an exceptionally sculpted bonnet with some prominent muscular character line flanked by the sharp pair of new projector headlamps with LED daytime running lights. The long front end, smooth designs curves and the slopping roofline craves attention. The rear section is also as spectacular as it gets with sharp curve light-style LED tail lamps and protruding spoiler-like tail. The rear bumper looks quite aggressive and comes with chrome-tipped dual exhaust pipes.
The inside of the DB11 is as spectacular as its exterior. The nicely laid-out cabin looks fresh and is all about elegance. It is the first production Aston with thoroughly modern electronics, featuring a 12-inch LCD instrument cluster paired with an 8-inch centre display for infotainment. What completes this Aston Martin is the 5.2-liter twin-turbocharged V-12 engine, which is capable of producing a maximum power output of 592bhp (600 horsepower).
