Aston Martin DB11 review
The hotly-anticipated successor to the Aston Martin DB9 is finally here. Equipped with a 5.2litre twin-turbo V12 engine, the DB11 will go on sale for a reasonable £156,000.
This is the successor of the Aston Martin DB9: the mighty Aston Martin DB11. In the video below, the car unfolds its virtues, with the beastly 5.2litre twin-turbo V12 engine that offers 600 horsepower and 71.3 kgm of torque.
The DB11 also features a rear-mounted 8-speed ZF automatic gearbox - two more gears than that on the DB9.
As well as the new bi-turbo V12 power unit - produced at Ford's Cologne engine plant, the DB11 features a new electric power steering system and stunning new Marek Reichman design to create aerodynamics previously seen on the Ferrari F12 and 488 GTB, according to Car Magazine.
Figures of such ensure a top speed of 198 m/h and an acceleration speed of 0-100km/h (62mph) in just 3.9sec.
Fancy one? The Aston Martin DB11 will set you back £156,000.
In the summer of 2017, Aston Martin announced that a V8 engine would be joining the original V12 power unit offering. Developed with Mercedes-AMG, the 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine offers a 115kg weight reduction compared to the initial 2016 V12 model. The V8 produces 503 bhp, topping out at 300 km/h (186 mph) and accelerates to 100 km/h in 4 seconds.
