PostHeaderIcon Chris Harris Reviews Aston Martin’s DB11, Gets Sideways Like It’s Nothing: Video

Aston Martin released the DB11 in 2016, offering a successor to the much-loved DB9 and promising to catapult the nameplate into a future filled with sporty good looks, modern technology, and no shortage of speed. Under the hood is a V-12 powerplant pushing a top speed of 200 mph. But while the specs are impressive, the DB11 still has some pretty big shoes to fill. With that in mind, the question is obvious – how does it get on in the real world? Top Gear’s Chris Harris decided to find out, and snagged the above-featured silver example of Gaydon’s latest and greatest for a quick spin in this seven-minute, 48-second video review.

The review starts on the street, where the DB11’s grand tourer chops are tested on a damp, rainy U.K. two-lane. Harris is immediately pleased to report that the DB11 fulfills its role with a supple, comfortable ride. Tackling public asphalt is a joy behind the wheel, with the cabin providing a lovely place to sit, despite the ageing Mercedes infotainment set-up. But no Chris Harris review would be complete without liberal application of counter steer, so after the road test, the car heads to the racetrack for a little tail out action. Make that a lot of tail out action. “It’s a really, really playful, fun car, with heaps of balance, and much easier to slide around than I ever expected!” Harris exclaims. “And it feels like it could do it for a long, long time. It feels robust!”

PostHeaderIcon Aston Martin DB11 Gets AMG V8 Engine

V8-Powered DB11_08

Taking their relationship with Mercedes-AMG to the next level, Aston Martin is releasing a new version of the DB11 super GT with the V8 engine out of the AMG GT. The 2018 Aston Martin DB11 V8 bi-turbo expands the model’s range and should attract new buyers with its blend of performance and efficiency. 

They haven’t even modified the AMG engine for use in the Aston Martin DB11 V8. It makes the same 510 horsepower as in the Mercedes. It is lighter than the V12 though (a saving of 115kg) and so it is still capable of decent performance with a 0 to 60 mph time of 4.0 seconds and a top speed of 187 mph. Meanwhile this big Grand Tourer returns CO2 emissions of 230g/km and an EU Combined fuel economy figure of 28.5mpg.

Aston Martin DB11 V8 is re-tuned to make use of its lighter weight compared to the V12 version. It comes with revised suspension bushing, geometry, anti-roll bars, springs, dampers and ESP software, all of which should give it a more sports car-like feel. Visual distinctions include a unique alloy wheel finish, dark headlamp bezels and a pair of bonnet vents instead of the quartet featured on the V12. The interior design and options are the same as the V12 model.

Prices for the V8-powered DB11 star from £144.900 in the UK, €184,000 in Germany and $198,995 in the US.

PostHeaderIcon Aston Martin DB11 Henley Royal Regatta

Aston Martin is no stranger to making special edition models. Its Q by Aston Martin personalization department is responsible for recent creations like the Vanquish S Red Arrows Edition that paid tribute to the Spitfire plane and the Blades Aerobatic Display Team and the AM37 powerboat-inspired Vanquish Volante. These two special edition models were unveiled a few months ago, so you can imagine how much of a groove Q by Aston Martin is in. Turns out, we don’t need to wait too long for Q’s next creation because it’s already arrived. It’s called the DB11 Henley Regatta and it’s a sight to behold.

Created to celebrate Aston’s partnership with Henley Royal Regatta, the one-off DB11 packs plenty of exclusive nods that reflect the prestige associated with one of the world’s prestigious rowing events. For those who aren’t familiar, the Henley Royal Regatta is a rowing event held annually on the River Thames by the town of Henley-on-Thames. It was founded in 1839 and is considered one of the oldest sporting events in the world. It figures then that with the event’s history, coupled with Aston Martin’s long-standing involvement in the realm of nautical sports, a partnership between the two entities would happen. Now it has with a one-off DB11 that received extensive work on the exterior and interior to make it a true one-off creation.

PostHeaderIcon Aston Martin DB11 S

Introduced in 2016 as a replacement for the iconic DB9, the Aston Martin DB11 brought the British carmaker into a new era, one that finally sees the old VH platform retire. Now using lighter underpinnings engineered with help from Mercedes-AMG, the grand tourer is more than capable of competing against its more modern rivals. However, the DB11 is still a long way from becoming a proper vehicle lineup, with the V-8 and other iterations still under development. But this may end by the end of 2017, as Aston Martin is already testing a higher performance version of the coupe.

Spotted on public roads for the very first time, the beefed-up DB11 uses a new aerodynamic package that includes a reworked bumper, new side skirts, and a race-inspired diffuser at the back. Although Aston Martin has yet to confirm it is working on a new version and there aren’t many hints out there, I believe that this is a more powerful variant of the DB11. Several reports suggest that it could wear an “S” badge, just like the upgraded version of the Vanquish. Nothing’s official yet, but this test car is definitely not the upcoming V-8 model that will slow below the V-12.

Expect this new model to break cover by the end of the year, probably before the BD11 Volante will be unveiled in early 2018. Meanwhile, let’s have a closer look at what we already know about the DB11 S in the speculative review below.

Updated 04/04/2017: Our spy photographers caught the upcoming Aston Martin BD11 out for a new testing session.

PostHeaderIcon AMG-Powered Aston Martin DB11 Could Debut in China

Aston Martin may have skipped out on creating a production version of the DB10 used in the most recent James Bond film, but that’s okay. We ended up getting the DB11, a vehicle built on a new, lighter architecture that included parts engineered by none other than Mercedes-AMG. The DB11 made its debut in mid-2016 and showcased the brand’s new 5.2-liter V-12 that had some 600 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of wholesome goodness. But, with that platform having plenty of AMG DNA at its core, that also means the DB11 is expected to get a version of the 4.0-liter, Biturbo, V-8 that was launched in the Mercedes-AMG GT. If Car News China is to be believed, the AMG-powered DB11 will make its debut at the Shanghai Auto Show next month.

Of course, there’s no official announcement as of yet, so specifics are still up in the air, but rumor has it that it will pump out around 530 horsepower – a figure that puts it about 70 horsepower shy of the V-12 powered DB11, which kicked out 600 horsepower and 516 pound-feet. According to the source, the DB11 V-8 will start out at 2.75 million yuan, or about $400,000 – about $70,000 cheaper in China than the V-12 model. And, since the V-8 is just below the 4.0-liter threshold, it will offer an attractive savings over the V-12 model thanks to it being in a lower tax bracket.

PostHeaderIcon Aston Martin DB11 Q by Aston Martin

Introduced in 2016 as a replacement for the long-running DB9, the Aston Martin DB11 is returning to the Geneva Motor Show exactly one year after its debut. This time around, the British firm is using the Swiss event to showcase the first DB11 tailored by Q, its personalization division. What’s more, the DB11 by Q also marks the debut of Aston Martin’s enhanced bespoke service, which now includes more options than ever.

Specifically, the Q division evolved into a multi-tiered offering that gives customers almost limitless opportunities to create their unique Aston Martin. The new collection includes exclusive paint and upholstery colors, and new material finishes and craft elements. These range from a unique leather quilt upholstery pattern to tinted wheel finishes with body-colored blades, as well as new wood and leather inserts inside the cabin.

The DB11 by Q will share the stage with two other fresh Aston Martin vehicles. Visitors will be able to take a closer look at the new Vanquish S, the most powerful and dynamic grand tourer to date, as well as the AM-RB 001 hypercar, which makes its European debut after going public for the very first time at the Canadian International Auto Show.

PostHeaderIcon Tom Brady Didn't Just Win His Fifth Super Bowl, He's Also Designing Cars For Aston Martin

Tom Brady is the toast of the town these days, and rightfully so. The man just engineered the biggest comeback in Super Bowl history on his way to winning his fifth Super Bowl title and fourth Super Bowl MVP, the most of any player in history in both categories. But the New England Patriots’ historic win over the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI wasn’t the only headline-grabbing news that Brady was involved in over the weekend. Lost in the ginormous shadow of the Big Game was the announcement of the GOAT’s new partnership with Aston Martin.

Not much is known about what kind of partnership Brady has with the British automaker, but the latter did release a small teaser announcing the collaboration. The likely scenario would be for Brady to serve as the new ambassador of Aston Martin, specifically that of the automaker’s new DB11 performance coupe. The 30-second teaser alluded to as much when since it prominently featured the DB11 together with a number of descriptive words that could have been used to describe either Aston Martin or Tom Brady. From there, the teaser cuts to black as the words “Tom Brady and Aston Martin” come to the screen, followed by the words “Coming Soon.” The video then ends with the logo of the DB11, essentially confirming that this new relationship between the five-time Super Bowl winner and the British auto marquee will revolve around the latter’s new performance coupe.

Neither Aston Martin nor Tom Brady have elaborated on the partnership so as far as teasers go, this one succeeded in drawing up a lot of curiosity for both parties. There’s a good chance that Brady could be announced as the new brand ambassador of Aston Martin or he could be in line to build a special variant of the DB11, probably for the U.S. market.

Either way, let’s all hope that more information becomes available sooner than later. You have our curiosities piqued, Aston Martin. Now how about throwing us a bone to shed light on this new partnership with 12.

PostHeaderIcon Aston Martin DB11 Officially Goes Into Production

Production for the Aston Martin DB11 has officially began at the British automaker’s home production facility in Gaydon, England. No less than Aston Martin CEO Andy Palmer was on hand to witness the milestone event.

Palmer understandably called the event “an exciting moment for the entire company” as production of the DB11 signals the official start of the company’s ambitious “Second Century Plan.” The DB11, which was just launched at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show in March, is expected to lay the groundwork for as many as seven new models from the British automaker, including next-generation versions of the Vantage and Vanquish sports cars, as well as the DBX electric crossover, a pair of Lagonda-badged sedans, and a supercar that will compete against the likes of the Ferrari 488 GTB.

The importance of the DB11 to Aston Martin is evident by Palmer’s promise to personally inspect the first 1,000 DB11 models to be produced. Considering that interest in the car is off to a resounding high – Aston has already received 3,000 orders for the DB11 – production of the successor to the DB9 should make it an incredibly busy time inside the Gaydon facility as Aston Martin officially starts a new chapter in its long and illustrious history.

PostHeaderIcon Aston Martin DB11 Receiving Massive Pre-Orders

Aston Martin may have struck a gold mine with the recently introduced DB11. That was the tone laid out by CEO Andy Palmer when he told The Motoring Report at the Australian Grand Prix that more than 1,400 customers have already pre-ordered the DB11 despite the British automaker not yet releasing the car’s full specs.

The massive interest in the DB11 can be attributed to a lot of things, but given what we know about the car so far, the two most obvious sources of attention are the car’s overall aesthetic design and it’s 5.2-liter twin-turbocharged V-12 engine that pumps out 600 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque. Customers who know the nitty gritty details about their cars are likely to have appreciated the fact that the DB11 also comes with a new-generation chassis, suspension, steering, and technology, the last of which comes with the assistance of technology partner Daimler.

With many of the specifics still unknown, the notion the DB11 is already getting significant attention can be considered a massive coup for Aston Martin. The British automaker isn’t particularly known for having unlimited resources, so when one of its cars gets this kind of attention, it’s something that the company should be proud of.

If anything, Aston Martin’s goal for the DB11 to be its resident GT car is off to a great start. The kind of interest is generating gives the automaker the confidence to believe that its plan for the car to appeal to a broader consumer base is working flawlessly.

Aston Martin’s duty now is to ensure the DB11 will justify the massive demand it’s generating. No pressure, right Dr. Palmer?

PostHeaderIcon Aston Martin Looking To Build Seven-Model Range

Aston Martin isn’t keen on calling it a lineup overhaul, but it might as well admit to it after announcing plans to build a seven-model lineup that effectively signals the start of a new era for the British luxury brand.

Speaking with Car & Driver, Aston Martin CEO Andy Palmer laid out the plans for the new model range, beginning with the replacement of the existing V8 Vantage. That model will retain the same name and is expected to launch in 2017. More importantly, it’s going to use the AMG-sourced 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8 engine, the first Aston Martin to use this specific powertrain. Accompanying the new engine will be a choice of either manual and automatic gearboxes. As for the V-12 version of the Vantage is concerned, Aston Martin hasn’t made plans known for that car, that is if it has plans to begin with. In any event, the release of the replacement Vantage will be followed by another replacement model.

Once the new Vantage hits the market, Aston Martin will turn its focus on new Vanquish. That car won’t be launched until 2018, and at this point, not much is known about the technical side of the supercar. It is important to note that Palmer himself singled out the next-generation Vanquish as the likeliest model to receive some of the technologies that come out of the Aston Martin-Red Bull Racing partnership. Two F1-sourced techs that are reportedly being considered for the new Vanquish include structural carbon fiber and KERS technology.

Beyond these two models, Aston Martin is also busy preparing the DB11, which we first saw at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. The long-awaited replacement for the DB9 will be powered by a newly developed 5.2-liter turbocharged V-12 engine and is scheduled to arrive around the same time as the next-generation Vantage. A V-8 version is also reportedly in the cards, but a timetable for that model is still up in the air.

Rounding out the seven-model range are two models that we already know about: the Lagonda SUV and the DBX electric crossover. The remaining models are still shrouded in secrecy, but there is some indication that they could be the V-12 version of the Vantage and the V-8 version of the DB11. Another possibility is a production version of the RapidE Concept. Whether any of these possibilities come to bear is still a matter of debate, but we do know that theAM-RB 001, the 99-piece hypercar Aston Martin is developing with Red Bull, is unlikely to be part of the seven models due to its limited run.

PostHeaderIcon Aston Martin DB11 Volante

The Volante name has been used on Aston Martin convertibles for the last 50 some years. Looking back, we’ve seen the Short Chassis Volante in 1965 and 1966, and then there was the DB6based Volante from 1966 to 1971. Then, between 1978 and 1996 there was the V8 Volante, V8 Vantage Volante, and the V8 Virage Volante. From ’96 to ’04 there was the DB7 Volante, and more recently there has been the DB9 and DBS Volante. With that kind of pattern, and the Aston Martin DB11 set to go on sale for the 2017 model year, it’s only fitting that Aston Martin will eventually drop another Volante based on its soon-to-be-iconic DB11.

With that method of thinking, we’ve decided to tap into our resident artist to put together a rendering of what the DB11 Volante might look like when Aston Martin does decide to take that plunge. As you can see from our rendering, the DB11 looks pretty sexy with its top off, so we don’t see any good reason why it wouldn’t be written in the books for our future. Until then, let’s take a good look at the rendering and talk a little about the potential of this upcoming model.

PostHeaderIcon Aston Martin DB11 Volante

Based on the DB10 James Bond Movie car, the DB11 has been a very anticipated model. It just went into production back in September of 2016, with first deliveries to U.K. customers happening in October. The DB11 is a big deal for Aston Martin. It’s the first all-new, mass-produced model from Aston in more than 10 years, it’s built upon a new, lighter architecture with some Mercedes-AMG DNA, comes with a powerful and all-new 5.2-liter V-12 engine, and surely is the beginning of a new era for one of our favorite brands. And, it’s a powerful era as well. The DB11 and DB11 Volante come with 600 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque on tap and can hit as high as 200 mph! And, it does that while looking absolutely beautiful at the same time.

With the Volante name (which is Aston Martin’s way of saying convertible) being widely used over the last 50 years on models like the V8 Vantage Volante, DB9 Volante, and DBS Volante, to name a few, we knew early on the DB11 would most definitely get its own Volante model. We made a rendering depicting what it might look like early on, and have since seen a few teaser photos from Aston of the prototype sporting a decal that says “Opening Spring 2018.” Now, that prototype has been caught during testing in the burly cold of Sweden, which in conjunction with that weird door decal, tells us that the DB11 Volante is right on schedule to make its debut in just a few months.

With that said, let’s take a look at these new shots, compare it to our rendering a bit, and talk about what we can expect now that we’ve seen the prototype in action.

Updated 04/05/2017: Our spy photographers caught the upcoming Aston Martin DB11 Volante lapping around the famous Nurburgring track.

Aston Martin DB11-sing-0

The image of the new Aston Martin DB11 is still burning hot in our hearts since we saw it at the Geneva Motor Show. So what we have here is only going to make it worse. Here’s the gorgeous DB11 making its regional debut in Singapore.

So Singapore becomes the first country where Aston Martin DB11 has already debut. Not even Switzerland where the Geneva Motor Show is held the car has hit the showrooms yet, but apparently you can order one right now at that corner of the world.

We have no idea how much the new Aston costs yet, but we do know that it comes with a gorgeous new design, a brand-spanking-new 5.2-litre twin-turbocharged V12 engine,  and a new lighter, stronger, and more space efficient bonded aluminium structure. With a power output of 600bhp and 700Nm of torque, the GT car is capable of sprinting form 0 to 62 mph in 3.9 seconds and on to a top speed of 200 mph.

Other notable technical highlights of Aston Martin DB11 include Multiple driver-selectable dynamic modes – GT, Sport and Sport Plus, 8-speed automatic ZF transmission, electric power steering, Torque Vectoring by braking and adaptive damping.

PostHeaderIcon 2016 Geneva International Motor Show – Best In Show

You know, if you take a long, hard look at auto journalism, there are a few words that seem to pop up a little too often. One good example is the word “epic,” which, in my opinion, should be reserved for life’s most dramatic, mind-blowing moments. That said, last week was the Geneva International Motor Show, and I feel quite confident in labeling it the most epic show of the year. Granted, we’re only a week or so into March, but honestly, I’m not sure how the rest of 2016 will be able to top what we saw in Geneva.

Of course, with over 100 debuts on the schedule and just about every marque under the sun in attendance, odds were high that Geneva would bring the good stuff. Nevertheless, this year’s event in Switzerland went above and beyond, showcasing the next evolution, as it were, when it comes to bleeding-edge technology and face-melting speed.

So then – to the task at hand. It is with great pleasure that I present to you the top five debuts from the 2016 Geneva International Motor Show.

Aston Martin DB11 Promo

So as the dust starts to gradually set on the Geneva Motor Show and all the amazing cars it brought us, it’s time to kick back and take a closer look at the most important debuts. And we begin with the Aston Martin DB11 – quite possibly the sexiest car to be launched this year – shown off in action in this first promotional video.

Aston Martin DB11 is one of those rare cars that just cannot be faulted in terms of design. We don’t know how they do it, but Aston designers seem to have a magical ability in creating flawless looks for the firm’s GT cars. We wish we could say the same about their four-door cars, but anyway, what they’ve achieved with the DB11 is nothing short of spectacular.

In case you have already forgotten, Aston Martin DB11 comes with a new 5.2-litre twin-turbocharged V12 engine developing 600 horsepower, good for a top speed of 200mph and a 0-62mph time of just 3.9 seconds. The car also boasts an 8-speed automatic ZF transmission together with the new electric power steering and Torque Vectoring by braking while increasing the firmness of the adaptive damping for a greater sense of agility. In plain English that means the DB11 is as good to drive as it is to look at.

PostHeaderIcon Aston Martin DB11 Volante Rendering Emerges

Aston Martin DB11 Volante

After giving us an early look at the drop-top version of the new Bugatti Chiron, Designer X-Tomi has now taken the roof off the second hottest car of this year’s Geneva Motor Show. The Aston Martin DB11 Volante shown here is pretty much what the real thing will look like when it arrives next year.

So if you are totally smitten with the DB11 Coupe, and who can blame you, you should hold on a bit and wait for the Volante before placing an order. Traditionally, Cabriolet version of any coupe Aston is a lot sexier, even though the only difference is the lack or a solid roof. Aston Martin DB11 Volante is no exception, although we have to admit this isn’t a particularly brilliant angel you’re looking at here.

Speaking of tradition, another trait we’ve been seeing with open-top Astons this past few years is the convertible is usually not as good to drive as the hardtop. That certainly was the case with the DB9 Volante when it was first launched. That said, it’s not something that actively bugs you unless you are the kind of person who tracks their open-top cruiser. Otherwise, the convertible is a much better choice, mainly because of the looks, but also because it comes with ninety-million miles of sky as standard.

Aston Martin DB11-0

So after months of anticipation the all-new Aston Martin DB11 finally goes on display at the Geneva Motor Show, celebrating its global debut. That is something worth celebrating because if the DB9 is any indication, this car is going be in the spotlight for the next decade or so.

We’ve already discussed details of Aston Martin DB11 to some extent when we showed you the first photos of the car. But to give you the official facts and figures, the car comes with a new 5.2-litre twin-turbocharged V12 engine developing some round numbers: 600 horspeower, 700Nm of torque. The new super car boasts an 8-speed automatic ZF transmission, new electric power steering and Torque Vectoring by braking, plus refined aerodynamic properties brought on by the great new looks.

All that means you can sprint in Aston Martin DB11 from o to 100 km/h in 3.9 seconds and reach a top speed of 200 mph or 320 km/h. The car is also good in between those numbers, when it’s dealing with the twisty bits, thanks to sport chassis, suspension, steering and driver-selectable dynamic modes – GT, Sport and Sport Plus. In making the DB11 a driver’s car Aston may have sacrificed some of the ride comfort, though. That remains to be seen in independent test drives.

The incredibly sexy Aston Martin DB11 also comes with all-new interior featuring a full-colour 12” TFT LCD display, new instrument cluster with an 8” TFT screen, satellite navigation and audio system. There is also new convenient equipment such as an auto-park assist with 360-degree birds-eye view camera. Going on sale during the fourth quarter of 2016, the DB11 is priced from £154,900 in the UK, €204,900 in Germany and $211,995 in USA.
