People were so amazed by the new Aston Martin Valkyrie – used to be known by codename AM-RB 001 – at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show that not all of them were able to fully appreciate one of the carmaker’s other displays at the international event. But we do! We are talking about the bespoke edition of Aston Martin DB11, as customized and tailor-made by the carmaker’s bespoke service.
We are referring to the new DB11 Q by Aston Martin, an exclusive version of the Aston Martin DB11 that is part of the “‘Q by Aston Martin -- Collection” being displayed at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. The new DB11 Q by Aston Martin is aimed at highlighting the range as well as the breadth of the new Q by Aston Martin – Collection.
Wrapped in exclusive Zaffre Blue paint exterior finish, the DB11 Q by Aston Martin features the usual elements of a typical DB11, but with some additions and modifications. This color is also found on the door panels and wheels as well as on the seats, interior knobs and switches. Zaffre Blue is complemented by gloss, satin twill and forged carbon fiber details. These details include the new front splitter, bonnet strakes, rear diffuser side strakes, side sills and door mirrors. The DB11 Q by Aston Martin also features wheel centers and engine cover in carbon fiber.
Meanwhile, the interior of the DB11 Q by Aston Martin is wrapped in Obsidian Black Semi-Aniline leather. The headrest of the sports car’s seats features the embossed “Q by Aston Martin” logo.
Furthermore, the DB11 Q by Aston Martin could be made more exclusive by availing of the Q by Aston Martin 4 Piece Luggage set. Available at £3,795, this color-matched four-piece luggage set includes two large holdalls and two flight cases.
The new DB11 Q by Aston Martin is powered by a new 5.2-liter twin-turbocharged V12 engine that could develop at most 608 PS (600 hp) of output and at most 700 Nm of torque. Sent to the rear wheels through an eight-speed automatic ZF transmission, this amount of output and torque allows the new DB11 to sprint from a standstill to 62 mph (100 km/h) in just 3.9 seconds and achieve a top speed of 200 mph (322 km/h).
Complementing this much power are technologies that help improve the V12 engine’s fuel efficiency like stop-start technology intelligent bank activation. In addition, chassis, steering, suspension and electronics of the DB11 have been fine-tuned to match the power levels of the V12 engine. Engine response could be intensified by multiple driver-selectable dynamic modes: GT, Sport and Sport Plus.
