The verdicts are in and the DB11 has exploded onto the scene. Everyone LOVES it.
Of course, we’re not surprised. When the first new DB for 13 years visited our showroom in March the reaction was crazy. We took more preorders than any other car and 300 people showed up just to get close to it.
Now, we can talk about its performance – and it more than lives up to the hype.
Top Gear called it a “heartland Aston - a 2+2 grand tourer, designed to dispatch mile after mile with silken grace, but with the ability to summon up a ballistic turn of pace and decent agility when you swap your brogues for Alcantara Stig boots.”
Pistonheads said: “Equally impressive is the way Becker and his team have created a chassis that's capable of handling all the power and torque while still feeling impressive agile.”
Autocar was impressed with the improved interior and gave it the ultimate praise – “I think they’ve got it spot on. This is the best Aston Martin I have driven in my lifetime, this is the more complete car. I think Aston has got this right, it feels a lot more agile than it should yet the ride and body control together are particularly good.”
Even Mashable, one of the biggest online magazines in the world – started by a Scot don’t you know – said it could cure the millennial obsession with experiences and get back on the possessions path. “It's more than just one of the best 'things' on the planet, it's also one of the ultimate experiences money can buy. Millennials, your experience fixation has met its match.”
And to experience it yourself, put 24 September in your diary - we’ll have two cars available for test-drives by appointment before our own demonstrator hits the road. We are still taking orders, though you’ll have to be patient, it will be the end of 2017 before we can deliver any more…
