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 for the DB9. It is the first model launched in Aston Martin's 'second-century' plan and the company's tie-up with Daimler AG.
Standard-bearer for an all-new generation of cars, the DB11 is the most powerful and efficient ‘DB’ production model in Aston Martin’s history. Available as a Coupe with the 5.2-litre twin-turbocharged V12 or the 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine, DB11 takes our grand touring heritage to unprecedented heights. The DB11 Volante completes the family; offering an equally stunning, open-topped GT experience.
The DB11 V12 is powered by an all-new 5,204 cc (5.2 L; 317.6 cu in) twin-turbocharged V12 engine called the AE31, making it the first turbocharged series-production Aston Martin. The new V12 retains conventional fuel injection and not direct injection because of worries over increased particulate output with DI petrols. Aston Martin also decided against a dry-sump lubrication system, instead optimizing a wet-sump design to perform under the high-g loading sustained when owners drive on a track. The engine has a power output of 608 PS (447 kW; 600 hp) at 6,500 rpm and 516 lb⋅ft (700 N⋅m) of torque between 1,500–5,000 rpm. The car is equipped with a rear-mounted 8-speed automatic transmission manufactured by ZF Friedrichshafen. The DB11 accelerates from 0–97 km/h (0–60 mph) in 3.8 seconds and can attain a top speed of 322 km/h (200 mph). In a road test conducted by Car and Driver, the DB11 accelerated from 0–97 km/h (0–60 mph) in 3.6 seconds and ran the quarter-mile in 11.7 seconds at a speed of 201 km/h (125 mph).
