The 1st of March not only brought the beginning of a new month but also the release of the Aston Martin DB11. A 5.2 litre twin-turbocharged V12 piece of art.

Aston Martin Chief Executive Officer, Dr Andy Palmer said:

“We aspire to make the most beautiful cars in the world.  DB11 is the absolute embodiment of what an Aston Martin should be and we have worked tirelessly to ensure that DB11 combines both exceptional design with the latest technology throughout. A brand new bonded aluminium platform, clever aerodynamics, a new characterful twin-turbo V12 and class-leading infotainment systems are just a few aspects which make this the sports car that will proudly spearhead Aston Martin’s second century plan.”

Here are just some quick facts then I will be quiet so you can take in its beauty.

• Lightest, stiffest and most space-efficient Aston Martin bonded-aluminium body structure
• Body structure optimised mix of bonded aluminium pressings, extrusions and castings
• Integrated ISOFIX mounting points in the rear to enable fitment of child seats
• New 5.2-litre twin-turbocharged V12 engine designed by Aston Martin’s in-house powertrain team and manufactured at Aston Martin’s engine facility
• Outputs of 608PS and 700Nm make it the most powerful ‘DB’ model ever1
• Fastest and most accelerative ‘DB’ model in history: Top speed 200mph1; 0-62mph time of just 3.9sec1
• Intelligent bank activation and stop-start also make it the most efficient
• 8-speed transaxle with repositioned differential for improved packaging and interior space
• Pioneering new airflow concept is the subject of a patent application
• New Curlicue apertures extract high-pressure air from front wheel arches through reimagined side strake vents to reduce frontal lift
• Additional high-pressure air escapes though ‘stirrup vents‘ in the sills
• Innovative Aston Martin AeroBladeTM uses ducted high-speed airflow to act as a virtual spoiler
• Small active spoiler deploys from decklid to further reduce lift at the rear

Racing games is where my love for cars started. Always wanting to play more and more realistic games until I was allowed to get behind the wheel. Combine this with my love for technology and that has made me who I am today. I love to see my two passions combining and see what technologies are being used in the latest cars.
