The Aston Martin DB11 has made its official debut at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show.
Engine & Gearbox Specifications
The Aston Martin DB11 is powered by a newly developed 5.2-litre twin-turbo V12 that produces 600bhp and 700Nm. The new engine was developed in-house by Aston Martin and is the most powerful engine to have been fitted to an Aston Martin of the DB line of cars.
The Aston Martin sends its power and torque to the rear wheels through a ZF 8-speed automatic gearbox which helps deliver the three driving modes — GT, Sport and Sport+ which can be selected by just flicking a switch.
The new DB11 can sprint from 0–100km/h in just 3.9 seconds and keeps on accelerating to a top speed of 322km/h.
The new DB11retains the trademark Aston Martin grille up front but is lot more agressive than the DB9 that it replaces. The clamshell bonnet gives the front a much cleaner look.
The new DB11 takes its styling cues from the DBX crossover from last year, the CC100 from 2013 and the DB10 from last year's James Bond movie, Spectre. This is seen in the angular headlamps which lok quite similar to the ones on the DB10.
The taillamps mesh quite well with the rear end of the DB11 and combined with the angular diffusor and the dual tailpipes give the DB11 a rather premium look.
Inside the car features an 8-inch infotanment display borrowed from Mercedes and controlled by a Merc scroll wheel. The instrument cluster has been replaced by a 12-inch TFT display as well.
Availability & Price
The Aston Martin DB11 will go on sale later this year with prices starting at £154,900 (Rs. 1.46 Crores).
