Almost unbelievably, the DB11 is Aston Martin’s first all-new car in around a decade, replacing the DB9 as the grand tourer (GT) in Aston’s line-up.
The DB11 is powered by a twin v12 engine and has 600 brake horsepower, up 83 over the old model. Torque has been enhanced too – up 59 lb-ft to 516 and available from 1,500 all the way up to 5,000 rpm. The DB11 can make the sprint to 62 mph in 3.9 seconds, 0.7 quicker than the DB9. Top speed is 200 mph.
We took the DB11 for a test drive round Hong Kong.
