This Monday at Parlay Studios in Jersey City, Aston Martin Summit/Short Hills held a private unveiling of its newest (and highly anticipated) model, the DB11. In conjunction with Macallan, Aston showed off its latest creation, which just might be its best yet. Over the past few years, the iconic brand has made a tremendous effort to invest more in new technology. The DB11 itself is a full representation of that effort and according to Aston Martin CEO Andy Palmer, it is “the most important car” they have launched in the brand’s entire existence.
Using a new aerodynamic system, the DB11 ducts air through the rear of the body to reduce drag, negating the need for a big spoiler and enhancing stability. With its new designs and patented technology, the 3,900 lb DB11 ensures that Aston Martin will stay competitive in the luxury market. In addition, the car itself is wider and longer than the popular DB9, but still maintains the that classic Aston silhouette. The DB11 has a new bonded aluminum body that is lighter and stronger, improving upon the overall structure of its predecessor.
The vehicle’s new 5.2-liter twin-turbocharged V12 engine, is also eco-conscious in that it turns off unnecessary cylinders to save on gas. And while the DB11 isn’t the loudest, it is capable of reaching speeds up to 200 mph. And the true draw of this model is its 600 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque, which yields a 0 to 62 time of 3.9 seconds. Look for the Aston Martin DB11 to make some noise in the luxury auto market come September.
