So as the dust starts to gradually set on the Geneva Motor Show and all the amazing cars it brought us, it’s time to kick back and take a closer look at the most important debuts. And we begin with the Aston Martin DB11 – quite possibly the sexiest car to be launched this year – shown off in action in this first promotional video.
Aston Martin DB11 is one of those rare cars that just cannot be faulted in terms of design. We don’t know how they do it, but Aston designers seem to have a magical ability in creating flawless looks for the firm’s GT cars. We wish we could say the same about their four-door cars, but anyway, what they’ve achieved with the DB11 is nothing short of spectacular.
In case you have already forgotten, Aston Martin DB11 comes with a new 5.2-litre twin-turbocharged V12 engine developing 600 horsepower, good for a top speed of 200mph and a 0-62mph time of just 3.9 seconds. The car also boasts an 8-speed automatic ZF transmission together with the new electric power steering and Torque Vectoring by braking while increasing the firmness of the adaptive damping for a greater sense of agility. In plain English that means the DB11 is as good to drive as it is to look at.
