As we are right off Route 183, you can go straight and leave other drivers surprised when you hit the road.
Exterior and Interior
In the front, the low line of the hood and the chin marry the ground, while a large gate opening takes the traditional shape of Aston Martin, one of the most attractive in the sector. The large hood with lid is just a piece of laminated aluminum, giving a cleaner look to the front. The slender central part of the bodywork is largely unadorned, although there is a line of characters along the bottom that rises quickly, then rises to a shallower angle to eliminate some visual weight from the side. of the car. The body widens at the back, then quickly enters and wraps around the back. The greenhouse defines the car as much as anything else. It has fast lines at the front and back and the rear pillars are darkened, creating a floating appearance. Buyers can choose a black roof or a roof box and roof pillars are available in silver, body color or black. The body also has some functional details. The brakes behind the front wheels look good and help deflect the high pressure of the tires. The deep entrances around the rear windows direct air towards the AeroBlade of the automobile, which sends it through the trunk to create a “virtual spoiler” that enhances the aerodynamic drag and support elements.
Inside, you can think of the 2018 Aston Martin DB11 as a bespoke suit. Buyers can choose leather and monotone or two-tone colors for everyone. They can opt for contrasting topstitching, add or subtract leather brogues, combine the leather of the lining of the roof with one of the shades of two tones (or choose the Alcantara), opt for the carbon fiber or the one of the many options of wooden ornaments, choose shiny or “jewels” in dark metal and choose from many colors of carpets, among others. The design of the painting is well known to Aston Martin fans. The start button is located on the center stack, where it is flanked by the PRND buttons for transmission. A screen is at the top of the stack and a mouse-like controller is at the bottom of the stack.
Both engines are new to this database build. The V-12 is now a 5.2-liter twin turbocharger unit generating 600 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque. The V-8 is also double turbocharged. It’s a 4.0-liter Mercedes-AMG engine with 503 horsepower and 498 lb-ft of torque. Both engines are located further back in the chassis than the DB9 engines, which creates a better weight distribution. They are both coupled to an 8-speed automatic transmission with ZF source that can be changed via the steering paddles. In terms of engine performance, the V-8 and V-12 are virtually a launch. The V-8 propels the 2018 Aston Martin DB11 from 0 to 100 km / h in 4.0 seconds, while the V-12 performs the action in 3.9 seconds. The V-12 reaches a maximum of 200 mph, while the V-8 can reach 187 mph. The main advantages of the V-12 are the plate and the sound. Nevertheless, both engines provide a menacing note worthy of the beautiful veneer that surrounds them. Aston Martin has tuned the Mercedes V-8 to look more like an Aston engine, replacing the intake and exhaust to limit the typical AMG bass tones and highlight mid and high tones. The two also fall an octave or two when they are put in Sport or Sport + mode to announce their intentions with more vehemence, letting out noises and clicks when the driver releases the accelerator and between the speeds. The power with the V-12 is more immediate, because the V-8 turbos take a little longer to unfold. From then on, the two engines place the occupants in these carved leather seats and launch this magnificent British missile towards the horizon. The drivetrain works better than a human being, interrupting the rapid changes in Sport modes from four to four downshifts and longer gears. In Comfort, the changes are smooth and the revolutions remain low.
