db11-012

The latest GT coupe from Aston Martin replaces the venerable and highly successful DB9. Powered by a 5.2 litre twin-turbo V12, the car produces a blistering 600 horsepower and 518 ft-lbs of torque. This is guided to the wheels by a rear-mounted ZF 8 speed automatic transmission that improves fuel mileage and performance over the traditional manual transmission. The DB11 can hit 60mph from a stop in 3.9 seconds and has a top speed of 200mph. (A more sedate 4l V8 is planned…)

The interior of the Aston continues the 2+2 layout, with the rear seats being more of a suggestion than something to be used. The infotainment system has a 12″ screen for sat navigation and to utilize the proprietary Aston Martin sound system. And, of course, hand-stitched leather and other natural materials for the upholstery.
