The Aston Martin DB11 is all about legacy. It builds on the tradition of Aston Martin with the first DB2 and continues on today with the new DB11. The Aston Martin DB11 is a new car that continues on the legacy and production of a legend.

Aston Martin has made the DB in honor of David Brown. He bought the company back in in the 1940s and turned it around. Since then the company has released a car that is in honor of him. That legacy now continues with the Aston Martin DB11.

The DB11 has a V12 5.2 liter, twin turbocharged engine. It can deliver up to 600 hp. That is all that is needed to power the DB11 to go up to 60 mph in 3.9 seconds. It is a second faster than the older DB9. Despite that, the DB11 is made for the long drive rather than a quarter mile race.

The suspension of the DB11 has been made to give it a smooth ride. It has adaptive dampers to help lessen body roll in tight corners. Inside the seats are quite plain, though. Trims can, however, be put on the interior which would add more style to it. Optional trims would either be carbon fiber or wood, according to Car and Driver.

One feature of the DB11 is the Aeroblade. This is a system wherein air is pulled in by vents, which then goes through the hood and to the leading edges of the car. This system gives it the downforce air needed to stabilize the car at high speeds, eliminating the need for any spoiler, according to aCNet.

For technology and entertainment, Mercedes-Benz has been an inspiration for it. A rotating controller in the center adjusts navigation and settings. The infotainment screen is also an inspiration taken from Mercedes-Benz.

Its brakes are its only flaw. While they are big, engagement can take some time, though it would be adequate once that is achieved. Overall, the Aston Martin DB11 would be a car that lives up to the legacy of the past Aston Martin DBs.

The Aston Martin DB11 is a continuation of a legacy. It is a car that is a worthy successor to past Aston Martin DBs. There is also the Audi RS3, where power and beauty go together, as reported.
