It is going to take a while before the new Aston Martin DB11 is ready for the press and the endless test drive reviews it will be subjected to. But to give us a taste of what the new car is like, Evo Magazine sent their boy Jethro Bovingdon to the test track to have a go in a pre-production test mule.

So this is not the main dish. This sort of an appetizer to get us hungry for the Aston Martin DB11 which is currently cooking in the oven as the engineers prepare the garnish.
