The 2017 Aston Martin DB11 sits in an unusual niche. It's not quite a supercar like a Lamborghini Aventador, but neither is it a more common high-luxury or high-performance car like a Porsche 911 Turbo or Mercedes S-Class. As such, the DB11 is a car that's both exclusive and attainable, even if statistically few will vault to the tax bracket necessary to own and maintain one.
This makes the DB11 an attractive target for a buyer who wants one of life's finer cars but can't reconcile with more exclusive supercars that cost as much as a tidy house in the Midwest. For the base price, the DB11 represents an exceptional value. Its drop-dead gorgeous lines and style are distinct, and power from the turbocharged 12-cylinder engine is otherworldly and possibly worth every penny.
Although the core of the exterior design remains familiar, the new Aston Martin DB11 features an all-new aluminum structure that helps to shed some of the weight of its predecessor, the DB9. Also new is a 5.2-liter V12 engine rated at 600 horsepower and capable of carrying the DB11 at speeds of up to 200 miles per hour. The new engine is smaller than the 12-cylinder in the DB9, but dual turbochargers make up the difference and then some. The new car generates nearly 100 more horsepower than the DB9.
What you'll pay to drive away in an DB11 depends on how personal you want to make it. Some of the DB11's options are fairly desirable, such as ventilated seats and the top-shelf Bang & Olufsen sound system. Others are more superfluous, such as decorative headrest stitching, quilted leather surfaces, even alternative seat belt colors. Whichever interior color scheme you choose, whatever wheels, badges and body trim additions you ultimately decide on, let the incomparable shopping tools on Edmunds guide your way to your ideal Aston Martin.
