Surprising Things You Need To Know About The Aston Martin DB11

It's always exciting when a company like Aston Martin releases a new model. With a history of five-to-ten-year lifespans with only subtle updates throughout, a new DB is certainly something to look forward to. The DB9 was produced from 2004 to 2016, meaning the world is well overdue for a new DB model. As an answer to the prayers of luxury car enthusiasts everywhere, the engineers at Aston Martin have unveiled not just one, but two new DBs drool over.

It Has A V-12


Like the DBs that have come before it, the DB11 is outfitted with a massive 5.2-liter V-12 engine. This twin-turbocharged bad boy produces 600 horsepower and can rocket to sixty in 3.6 seconds. Thanks to a recent partnership with Daimler, Aston Martin uses the Mercedes AMG engines for their powerhouses. With a 200 mile per hour top speed, the V-12 is more than enough power for any driver. While the displacement of the engine may have gone down - the DB9 had a 6.0-liter V-12 - the new turbocharged AMG is faster and more powerful than its predecessor.
