A Remarkable replacement for the iconic but long-serving Aston Martin DB9 has finally been revealed. It is called the Aston Martin DB11, a dual-turbocharged 600bhp GT, at the 2016 Geneva motor show and it is available to order now priced from £154,900 and deliveries of the new GT will start towards the end of 2016.
This show off the new V12-engined GT in full. It also presents a long-bonnet, cab-backward stance, allowing the car to accommodate its 12-cylinder engine. Other styling features provides a jutting front spoiler, headlamps ‘bleeding’ back over the edges of the wings and highly sculpted and blistered back wheelarches.
With fresh contemporary styling, a new 600bhp dual-turbo V12 designed in-house, a revised body structure that is stiffer and offers more room for the driver and back seat passengers, the new DB11 Aston 2+2 grand tourer surely ticks all the boxes for Aston’s myriad fans.
It is an in-house designed dual-turbocharged 5.2-litre V12. Alas, it seems like the naturally aspirated 12-cylinder era is over at Aston, as the company strives to meet secure emissions requirements and economy considerations.
The all-aluminium V12 produces a stout 600bhp and 516lb ft, that is sent to the back wheels via a back-mounted 8-speed ZF automatic gearbox. Peak power is produced at 6500rpm, while top torque is usefully on offer from 1500-5000rpm.
The DB11 just might be the first Aston Martin in years to provides a thoroughly modern and viable alternative to stalwarts like Bentley and Rolls-Royce.The DB11 is Aston’s most significant model car since the outgoing DB9 debuted in 2003. It is the most powerful, most dynamically gifted and most efficient DB Model in the Aston Martin history, and will available in showrooms this year.
