While most automakers had a tough 2017, Aston Martin is profitable again after about a decade, surging on to a record year of sales in 2017 thanks to the new DB11. And it’s only getting started.
The 2018 Aston Martin DB11 can be had with a 503 horsepower V8 or a 600 HP V12. We’ve driven both cars back to back, and even if you’re not comparison-shopping super GT cars the tangible differences between the two were actually pretty interesting.
I hate car keys that don’t actually have a physical home inside their vehicle, but that’s more a fault of my own idiocy than engineering. The key to the Aston Martin DB11 V12, however, is so dang large that I thought somebody at the company was playing a joke on me.
It’s always kind of a crapshoot when you turn a coupe into a convertible. Sometimes you get something stunning, and sometimes you get the Nissan 350Z Roadster. But the new Aston Martin DB11's design seems hard to screw up no matter what you did to it, and luckily its roadster version doesn’t disappoint. Meet the DB11…
Aston Martin DB2. Aston Martin DB4. Aston Martin DB5, 6, 9, S, 10, 11. You get the idea. So, what does “DB” stand for? Dead Bird? Doobie Brothers? Database? DeciBel? Dragon Ball??
Four years ago, Aston Martin and AMG announced a partnership in which Aston Martin cars would get AMG engines and Mercedes electronics. Mercedes would get a five percent equity in Aston Martin. Good stuff all around!
An English man drives the new Aston Martin DB11 V8 down to a dead end on a mountain road through all sorts of weather, dodges cows, gets lost, and comes to terms with the color purple.
The new Aston Martin DB11 starts at around $212,000 here in the United States. Any guess on how much it costs in India? No. More than that.
The Aston Martin DB11 follows the increasingly worrying trend in expensive cars that they are loud loud grr ahem loud, especially when you start them up. The new DB11, however, also offers a hush soft whisper whisper quiet mode.
Aston Martin boss Andy Palmer, notoriously cool dude and runner by necessity, has promised seven new Aston Martin models to grace the lineup in the next seven years. Get excited.
Reflections of a super model.
The Geneva Motor Show came and went this week, and now we have all sorts of new supercar goodies to argue over for a few years. Here’s four quick dumb facts I’d like to share with you on some of our favorite new exotics from this year’s show.
Well, you can build your Aston Martin in any of the 35 colors made available on Aston Martin’s new DB11 online build generator, which is now live. It’s just that “Ocellus Teal” is an option and why would you not pick that option?
I’m a huge Aston Martin fan. For years, I’ve enjoyed Astons’ perfectly-proportioned, style-first designs. They were poster-worthy for anyone with a pulse. That is, until the arguably hideous DB11 was released, making me wonder if the world had lost its collective marbles, or if it was just me, angrily shaking my fist…
There’s a new Aston Martin DB! It goes to 11! Hilarious. We’re currently having an office debate over whether or not the new DB11 is pretty compared to the DB9, which is ridiculous because it is—just like the DB6 was still pretty when it followed the iconic DB5.
Over the past few years, we’ve heard rumors and finally confirmations that future Aston Martins would have AMG engines in them. And today they unveiled the new Aston Martin DB11 and it... doesn’t.
The 5.2-liter twin-turbo V12 which lives under the hood of the new 2017 Aston Martin DB11 sounds like an exotic blend of burbles and symphonies. Just listen for yourself.
There seems to be some disagreement among your Jalopnik staff about the new Aston Martin DB11. I rather like it; I find it both elegant and muscular, modern and sexy, and a strong signifier of Aston’s heritage that also carries it into the future.
The 2017 Aston Martin DB11 officially debuts at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show, but that’s not saying much. This is the latest of several image leaks, including a front-end photo just the other week. But unlike we’ve seen prior to now, the most recent crop of photos looks to be a set of factory images.
