The Aston Martin DB11 is a grand tourer produced by British luxury car manufacturer Aston Martin since 2016. It debuted at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2016 as a replacement to the DB9.
The reaction from the motoring press reviews has been overwhelmingly positive, including statements such as "it's a pretty fabulous way to sit behind 600 horsepower" from Car and Driver.
he DB11 is designed by Marek Reichman, Aston Martin’s chief creative officer and head of design. It continues the tradition of design focused on 1:3 proportions and includes a number of new and unique design features, including new roof strakes that separate the body from the roof, available in black or body colour and the "Aeroblade" intakes in the front strakes. These evolve the side strakes from purely visual to functional and channel turbulent air down the side of the car into intake ducts by the C pillars and force the air out from the rear vertically as a 'virtual' spoiler providing down-force.
The bonnet is a 'clam-shell' design made from a single piece of aluminium. The DB11 does not use the older Aston Martin VH platform as the car features an all-new riveted and adhesive-bonded aluminium platform that shifts the emphasis from extrusions to stampings to create more cockpit space which would also underpin future Aston Martin models including the Vantage.
