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.
