Aston Martin Mumbai is presenting the all-new DB11 for the first time in India with an exclusive road show across. Automotive enthusiasts and luxury connoisseurs will get a chance to experience first-hand the bold new figurehead of the illustrious ‘DB’ bloodline, on October 23 and 24 at ITC Grand Kakatiya, Hyderabad.
The unveiling of the DB11 at the 86th International Geneva Motor Show earlier in the year marked a new chapter in Aston Martin’s history. The first product launched under the company’s ‘Second Century’ plan, DB11 is an authentic, dynamic sporting GT in the finest Aston Martin tradition – and has made waves across the industry since its worldwide preview.
The DB11 showcases a fresh and distinctive design language, pioneering aerodynamics and is powered by a potent new in-house designed 5.2-litre twin-turbocharged V12 engine. Built upon a new lighter, stronger, and more space efficient bonded aluminium structure, DB11 is the most powerful, most efficient and most dynamically gifted DB model in Aston Martin’s history. As such, it is the most significant new Aston Martin since the introduction of the DB9 in 2003.
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 designs 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.”
Commenting on the launch of the Aston Martin DB11 in India, Lalit Choudary, Managing Director, Infinity Cars said, “The Aston Martin DB11 is a fine balance of beauty and performance; it is not just a new Aston Martin, but a revolutionary force that marks the beginning of a whole new chapter at the company. With superior design aesthetics matched with pioneering technology and innovative aerodynamics, the DB11 is also the most powerful Aston to wear a DB badge. We at Aston Martin Mumbai are proud to showcase this powerhouse to our discerning clientele in India.”
Heralding a new design era for Aston Martin, DB11 is the latest landmark in a remarkable aesthetic journey; one that gave us icons such as the DB2/4, DB5 and, most recently, the DB10 developed specifically for James Bond. DB11 re-imagines the relationship between form and function with a series of fresh design signatures. Foremost amongst these are the front-hinging clamshell bonnet, distinctive LED headlights and accentuated lines of the iconic Aston Martin grille.
The profile is equally dramatic, thanks to the roof strakes that flow uninterrupted from A-pillar to C-pillar. The clean lines continue at the rear, with a sloping decklid that smoothly blends into boldly sculpted tail-lights to create a new and unmistakable graphic. Innovative aerodynamics play their part in this aesthetic revolution with clever management of airflow both over and through the bodywork aiding stability while preserving the DB11’s uncluttered surfaces.
Front-end lift is reduced by the gill-like Curlicue which releases high-pressure air from inside the wheel arch via a concealed vent within the redesigned side-strake. Meanwhile, rear-end lift is reduced by the Aston Martin AeroBlade; a virtual spoiler fed by discreet air intakes located at the base of each C-pillar. Air is ducted through the bodywork, before venting as a jet of air from the aperture in the rear decklid.
