After being launched, the Aston Martin DB11 AMR became one of the world’s fastest GT cars and also the fastest Aston Martin.
Elegant exterior of Aston Martin DB11
The Aston Martin DB11 is part of Aston Martin’s “Second Century” plan. Consequently, the efforts and dedication of the Aston Martin engineers have been focused on the DB11 design.
The exterior of the Aston Martin DB11 features the new Aston Martin crossover, the DBX, as well as the lines of the DB10, the only car ever to feature in the Spy 007: Specter. However, the small details, as well as the fastback design in the rear, have been designed sharp and more angular.
The DB11 body panels, mostly made of aluminum, except for synthetic resin and bootlid panels, and plastic moldings and platens. The magnesium door frame also holds the weight down.
Aston Martin claims this is the lightest, strongest and most space-efficient car ever produced. The whole design has undergone a radical transformation to achieve the highest efficiency and the most balance between usability and aesthetics.
Still bearing the fastback design, the Aston Martin DB11 is now more angled and personalized, thanks to the many details that are designed to be sharp.
The design looks like a deliberate move away from the seductive design of Aston VH cars towards a modern and powerful style but it still intact the charm of the brand
The smart aerodynamic design provides air out of the front wheel arch via the front wing vents to reduce the front axle lift, while the doors in the C-pillar pass through the rear wing and outward, followed through the virtual airplane virtual airblade.
The dedication of interior
Inside the car, AMR’s spirit is also very strong with green borders everywhere, seats with AMR logo.
The interior space of Aston Martin DB11 is black and beige. Right-hand drive. Sports seats are embroidered by daring veins while the center console is teardrop-shaped.
The door sills of DB11 are much thinner than those of DB9. This facilitates penetration when you swing your legs in the deep and spacious floor of the car.
The high center console and elegant, high-end panel look familiar, but the instruments are not, while the quality of the material and the integrity of the fixtures is a real improvement. Where handles, levers and simple, inexpensive equipment have pulled the DB9 down, you will find solid, hard and expensive accessories.
There is no pedal to the right of the wheel, where Mercedes will locate the gear. In Aston Martin DB11, the purpose is made through the Park, Reverse, Neutral and Drive buttons on the center stack
The luggage space has nearly doubled to create a short boot but still has enough 270 liters capacity, so the DB11 is usable as any car in the class.
According to the current trend, set up DB11 color multimedia, 8.0in is displayed as a tablet is anchored instead of hidden inside the fascia. The advantage of this is controversial, especially when permanently fixed screens have such effects on the shape of the panel.
However, it is more important that this system has a beautiful interface, rich in features, responsive and intuitive to use. Aston Martin also offers you 400W of audio power, DAB radio, Bluetooth media streaming and a standard wi-fi hub. There are advanced 700W and 1000W audio enhancements available as an option, the latter sounding predictable as well.
You can use the touchpad or rotating wheel to interact with the car; both prefer the touchscreen interface. The speech recognition control is very good, like in a Mercedes-Benz.
Engine and performance
Regarding performance, the Aston Martin DB11 AMR features 5.2-liter twin-turbo V12 engine that is the same on the DB11 V12 but adds 30 horsepower to 630 hp and maximum torque of 700 Nm.
The increase in capacity along with the weight reduction helped the DB11 AMR accelerate 0-100 km/h in just 3.7 seconds. The maximum speed of this supercar is 334 km/h. These numbers help the DB11 AMR become one of the fastest GT cars in the world and also the fastest car in Aston Martin currently.
Also, Aston Martin also modified the gearbox, suspension, and exhaust sound to increase the excitement of the operation. The vehicle is equipped with automatic transmission 8-level, rear-wheel drive with carbon fiber transmission and Launch Control anti-slip differential.
The ride of DB11 is extremely good. Driving through the GT, S and S + modes produces a more powerful reaction than ever before from the adaptive dampers of the Bilstein, but it is the first to give the car the excellent dynamic capabilities that you will want from it.
The fairly soft springs provide a bump absorption to the most common speeds, but somehow these Bilstein prevented flaccid body control and associated lazy steering response that you would expect to find in the dynamic mix from the start.
It is more likely that Aston Martin DB11’s steel brakes will call time on your fun racing day. According to many test drivers, after five serious cases of abuse, it was necessary to calm the steel brakes down.
For the exterior, the innovation includes floats and an aerodynamic headrest that is attached to the roll cage instead of the seats’ body. This solution contributes to the lines and acts as the head fairing in the rear.
Narrow headlights visibly connected to each other, which represents a single element. The rear lights with their round shape is a tribute to the classic model of bygone years.
Other features include unique light alloy wheels and the elimination of the windshield allowing increasing air stream with the speed of the car on the driver’s head and bringing exciting experience.
Also, it owns a ventilated engine cover and circular taillights. Amazingly, its open-top and full carbon body contributes to weight savings of about 10% over the aluminum body panels of the donor car.
Each of the six limited models of Astro Martin DB 11 was attentively customized to suit the owner’s tastes. At the result, every unit is a fast, beautiful, and absolutely unique car with different colors.
While other roadsters get their peculiarities, the exterior of 2018/2019 version remarkably features 2-color painting with three-layer red as well as dark gray shades.
The cabin seats are trimmed in black leather together with the special inserts. Likewise, contrasting red stitching brings a dark interior brightness as well as emotions.
In conclusion, with a beautiful design, powerful engine, the Aston Martin DB11 deserves the car received the love of car racing enthusiasts.
