Production Commences for the Aston Martin DB11  Back

AstonMartinDB11Aston Martin has commenced production of the new highly anticipated Aston Martin DB11 for UK customers.

The DB11 will be the first core car launched under the luxury carmaker’s six year ‘Second Century Plan’.  The first DB11 came off the Gaydon production line today with first deliveries to customers taking place in October.

The new DB11 is the first in a line of seven new models to be launched over the next seven years, in line with the company’s ‘Second Century Plan’, which takes the 103-year-old company into its next century of operation.

Since its launch at the Geneva Motor Show in March, the Aston Martin DB11 has received rave reviews, with more than 3,000 orders for the new model already received. The car will be hand built at the company’s sports car production plant and headquarters in Gaydon, Warwickshire.

Built upon a new lighter, stronger, and more space efficient bonded aluminium structure, DB11 is the most powerful, most efficient and most dynamically gifted DB model in Aston Martin’s history. As such, it is the most significant new Aston Martin since the introduction of the DB9 in 2003.

The new DB11 succeeds the DB10 which was a car developed specifically for James Bond! the DB11 comes with its own fresh design 1AstonMartinDB11signatures such as a front-hinging clamshell bonnet, distinctive LED headlights and the accentuated lines of the iconic Aston Martin grille.

The DB11 sports a 5.2-litre twin-turbocharged V12 engine. Designed in-house the new engine is capable of delivering 608bhp combined with 700Nm of torque, making the DB11 the most powerful production DB model ever. It’s the most dynamic and most accelerative too, with a top speed of 200mph and a 0-62mph time of just 3.9sec.

In addition, the  Aston Martin DB11 combines the very latest technology developed in conjunction with technical partner, Daimler AG, with the finest quality and hand craftsmanship. Using a full-colour 12” TFT LCD display, the all-new instrument cluster presents primary vehicle information with absolute clarity, while a second, centrally-mounted 8” TFT screen is dedicated to infotainment. A newly implemented auto-park assist feature and 360-degree birds-eye view camera helps provide safe maneuvering at slow speeds and is also operated via the car’s infotainment system.

With wider door apertures, significantly increased occupant space – especially head and legroom in the rear – fully integrated rear ISOFIX mounting points for a pair of child seats plus a luggage compartment large enough to accommodate two large holdalls plus carry-on baggage, the DB11 is a genuine Grand Tourer.

In addition, the DB11 can be designed to suit your individual unique style thanks to a wide choice of palette colours and detailing options.

Aston Martin President and CEO, Dr Andy Palmer, who will personally assure the quality by inspecting the first 1,000 cars, said: “It’s an exciting moment for the entire company when the first car of a new model goes into production. The DB11 is a special car and it heralds the start of a new and exciting era for Aston Martin.”

He added: “We aspire to make the most beautiful cars in the world.  DB11 is the absolute embodiment of what an Aston Martin should be and we have worked tirelessly to ensure that DB11 combines both exceptional design with the latest technology throughout. A brand new bonded aluminium platform, clever aerodynamics, a new characterful twin-turbo V12 and class-leading infotainment systems are just a few aspects which make this the sports car that will proudly spearhead Aston Martin’s second century plan.”

The new DB11 will be sold with a Recommended Retail Price from £154,900 in the UK. First deliveries of the DB11 car are scheduled to begin during October.
