Pedestrian-stopping beautiful, power and handling

I have owned the DB11 and the DB11 AMR. The AMR improves on an already very impressive formula. The DB11 is so beautiful, it makes you smile every time you see it in the driveway and pedestrians will stop to gawp and take photos. The proportions and lines are just perfect, with those flared hips and long bonnet accentuating the looks. The quality of the cabin is undeniable, with hand-stitched leather everywhere, smelling just wonderful. The electronics in the infotainment system are mostly from Mercedes (albeit an earlier generation), which is, frankly, a relief as their system is one of the best. The power is awesome and, frankly, more than you will need most of the time. Massive torque delivery is at almost every part of the RPM range. I have very rarely put my foot fully to the carpet, other than on a dry, straight road on the German autobahn. The AMR suspension is stiffer than the original DB11, meaning alpine roads are easier to navigate but still fun enough if you accelerate. Given it is a hand-made car with millions of lines of software code, some niggles are to be expected, particularly from earlier models. My AMR is a 2019 model and has been virtually trouble free, apart from a loose hose on the cold-start system. Overall, a lovely car that will make you smile every time you get into it and others smile when they see it.

Our third Aston

This is our third Aston Martin. My wife thinks that it is the most beautiful car we have ever had, and this car is our 76th car. When I go to Cars and Coffee with it they have us park with the exotic cars. Last month between a Ferrari and Lamborghini. It had a crowd around it from the time we got there until we left. It gets noticed more than I thought it would, but always with positive responses. None of the negative that a Ferrari or Lamborghini gets. It is a true GT car with a bit more towards sport than the Bentley that is a bit more towards comfort. Our Bentley is a GT Speed that also has 600 hp but has all wheel drive. The DB11 has 600 hp but with rear wheel drive and can be a handful if you turn off the traction control. It has a beautiful leather interior that is very comfortable even on long trips. It is just about the perfect GT car.

I absolutely LOVE my DB11 V12 Coupe. It is an exotic car, with the performance of an exotic car, but it is easy to drive and not as flashy as most exotics. We live the heart of Boston and driving around the financial district is as easy as our Porsche Macan Turbo. Visibility is great and the 360 camera system helps a lot in tight spaces. I worried a lot about scraping the front chin but in 3 months we have not scraped it yet. It feels and sounds like you are going faster than you are at lower speeds, but at higher speeds they all feel the same. It is not an exaggeration when I say going 75 feels the same as going 105, which requires frequent monitoring of speed on the interstate. The interior is absolutely amazing in every respect, and the seats are both supportive and comfortable, even after several hours in them. It is also one of the sexiest cars on the road. If you want an exotic that somewhat blends in, is lovely to look at and sit in, easy to drive and more performance capability than you will ever need off the race track, then you cannot go wrong with a DB11. If you do not care about gas mileage, then go with the V12. I had the performance package installed bumping it to 630 hp; noticed the difference as soon as I left the dealership with it.
