A new chapter in Aston Martin’s history began at the 86th International Geneva Motor Show with the unveiling of the DB11.

The first product launched under the company’s ‘Second Century’ plan, DB11 is the bold new figurehead of the illustrious ‘DB’ bloodline and an authentic, dynamic sporting GT in the finest Aston Martin tradition.

The DB11 showcases a fresh and distinctive design language, pioneering aerodynamics and is powered by a potent new in-house designed 5.2-litre twin-turbocharged V12 engine.

Built upon a new lighter, stronger, and more space efficient bonded aluminum structure, DB11 is the most powerful, most efficient and most dynamically gifted DB model in Aston Martin’s history.

As such, it is the most significant new Aston Martin since the introduction of the DB9 in 2003.

Like every Aston Martin, the heart of the DB11 is found beneath the hood, though unlike any Aston Martin before it, the DB11’s heart is a 5.2-litre twin-turbocharged V12. Designed in-house this new engine develops 600 hp making DB11 the most powerful production DB model ever.

Naturally, it’s the most dynamic and most accelerative too, with a top speed of 200 mph and a 0-100 km/h time of just 3.9 sec.

Multiple driver-selectable dynamic modes (GT, Sport and Sport Plus) progressively intensify the response of the engine, eight-speed automatic ZF transmission together with the new electric power steering and Torque Vectoring by braking while increasing the firmness of the adaptive damping for a greater sense of agility.

The result is a driving experience that combines exemplary ride comfort and true sports car agility, for an extraordinary breadth of dynamic capability.
