Aston Martin dealerships in Delhi and Mumbai had started accepting bookings for the DB11 last year. Almost a year later, the first Aston Martin DB11 has been delivered to a customer in India.
Aston Martin DB11 is now on sale in India. It made its global debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March last year and is produced from the company’s plant in Gaydon, England.
A successor to Aston Martin DB9, the DB11 is based on Aston Martin DBX concept and DB10 from the James Bond movie, ‘Spectre’. It is designed by Marek Reichman and his team. It has been launched in India at a starting price of INR 4.27 crore, ex-showroom.
DB11 is the first series production to sport a 5.2-liter V12 twin turbo engine offering 608 PS peak power and 700 Nm peak torque mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. It accelerates from 0 to 100 kmph in 3.9 seconds and commands a top speed of 322 kmph.
Aston Martin DB11 interiors are seen with a fully digital instrument cluster, 12” full-color TFT LCD display and 8” TFT screen for on board infotainment. A Bang and Olufsen audio system and a 360-degree bird’s eye camera are also evident while exterior features include all-LED head and taillights, daytime running lights and low-speed cornering lights.
The DB11 sits on 20” wheels and receives a new front grille among other innovative exterior features setting it apart from its predecessor. Based on an all aluminum platform the Aston Martin DB11 commands a dry weight of 3990 lbs, 33 lbs lighter than the DB9 while a host of exterior color preferences and customization options are also on offer.
