Geneva 2016: All-new Aston Martin DB11 makes world debut

By ,

The all-new Aston Martin DB11 made its highly anticipated world debut today at the 2016 Geneva Auto Show, ready to write a whole new chapter. It is the first product launched under the company’s ‘Second Century’ plan.

As an authentic, dynamic sports GT, the DB11 showcases a fresh and distinctive design language (one that builds on the exclusive DB10 seen in the latest James Bond movie, Spectre), pioneering aerodynamics, and a new 600-horsepower, 5.2L twin-turbocharged V12 engine that was designed in-house. 

Capable of accelerating from 0-100 km/h in just 3.9 seconds and reaching a top speed of 320 km/h, it is also constructed on a new lighter, stronger, and more space-efficient bonded aluminium structure to become the most powerful, most efficient, and most dynamically gifted DB model in history, Aston Martin claims.

Could it represent the most significant new Aston Martin since the introduction of the DB9 in 2003? 

“This is not only the most important car that Aston Martin has launched in recent history, but also in its 103-year existence,” CEO Andy Palmer said. “The DB11 rightfully places Aston Martin once again as a leading brand in the luxury automotive market”.

Pricing for the Aston Martin DB11 is set at £154,900 in the U.K. and $211,995 in the U.S. Deliveries are scheduled to begin during the fourth quarter of 2016. No word yet about the Canadian market, however.
