Under the hood is a 5.2-litre twin-turbocharged V12 engine that produces 608 hp and 700 Nm of torque. This allows the DB11 to reach 0-100 km/h in just 3.9 seconds and achieve a top speed 320 km/h. The gearbox is the familiar 8-speed automatic ZF transmission.

On the exterior, The DB11 is sharper and more elegant than its predecessor, the DB9. The the two-tone roof gives it a distinct look and the rear-end gets an Aston Martin AeroBlade- a virtual spoiler fed by discreet air intakes at the base of each C-pillar. Inside, there’s lots of modern instruments and two TFT screens. Furthermore, the DB11 has more room than the DB9 and interior options include Nexus quilting and Celestial perforation with ornate leatherwork, such as intricate brogue detailing also possible.
