Aston Martin has finally unwrapped at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show its first product under its ‘Second Century’ plan – the new Aston Martin DB11. Powered by a new 5.2-liter twin-turbocharged V12 engine that Aston Martin designed in-house, the DB11 is able to provide the much desired acceleration and speed level.
With the V12 engine able to develop up to 608 PS (600 Bhp) of output and up to 700 Nm of torque, the new Aston Martin DB11 could accelerate from a standstill to 62 mph in just 3.9 seconds and reach a top speed of 200 mph. With this amount of power at its disposal, the new DB11 is simply the most dynamic and most powerful vehicle that Aston Martin has built so far.
Complementing this power are technologies that help improve the engine’s fuel efficiency like intelligent bank activation and stop-start technology. Of course, there is a need to modify and adjust certain elements – like chassis, steering, suspension and electronics.
The brand also infused a number of new vital technologies to make sure that the new twin-turbo V12 engine could go all out when needed. Transmitting power to the wheels of the new Aston Martin DB11 is an eight-speed automatic ZF transmission. Moreover, engine response could further be intensified by multiple driver-selectable dynamic modes - GT, Sport and Sport Plus.
Aston Martin also worked to make the adaptive damping firmer to create a greater sense of agility. All of these – along the new electric power steering and Torque Vectoring by braking – allow the new DB11 to provide a driving experience that fuses true sports car agility and potency with outstanding ride comfort.
Recommended Retail Price from £154,900 in the UK2, €204,900 in Germany and $211,995 in USA, first deliveries of the DB11 car are scheduled to begin during the fourth quarter of 2016.
