The DB11 debuted a new design language for Aston Martin with some design flourishes that have subsequently been adopted across its portfolio and in the process, the DB11 has matured into an Aston Martin design study for the Marek Reichman era with a number of firsts for the marque.
The design is perhaps more colour-sensitive than its GT predecessors with a deliberate imbalance of mass top to bottom as the design visually splits the body from the roof section with ‘roof strakes’ in a contrasting gloss black finish. However, if this delicate equilibrium is achieved, as in this Magnetic Silver example, there are fewer more dramatic GTs.
This 2017 example is still in the care of its original owner having only covered 8,189 miles from new
The front is defined by the characteristic Aston Martin grille, narrower LED headlights and a vast, single-piece clamshell bonnet under which functional vents release high-pressure air from the wheel wells, reducing lift and in true GT style, these vents remain concealed rather than on show like competitors’ more race-bred offerings.
The 'Curlicues' too are a noticeable flourish when compared to the Vanquish S that envelops the front wheel arch. The ‘Curlicue’ first appeared on the Vulcan track car but looks even better here on the DB11. From the ‘Curlicues’ back, the bodywork lines taper towards enlarged rear arches and finish in a flat rear end that echoes the typical ducktail seen in other Aston Martins, culminating in an elegant pebble-shaped rear. The original design brief from Reichman stated the rear had to remain uninterrupted by a spoiler or wing and thus the engineers developed the ‘Aeroblade’. Passing air from vents in the C-pillars through and out the boot lid created a virtual spoiler that reduced drag. In addition, a thin pop-up Gurney flap that rises in front of the Aeroblade's holes is used, should an increase in downforce be required.
Over and above these design-flourish firsts, only a GT can offer the sort of glamour, style and je ne sais quoi typically associated with its most renowned predecessors. Today, it is something the DB11 along with only a very few direct rivals can still pull off and remain relevant in a high-end market where all-out performance generally reigns supreme.
This 2017 example is still in the care of its original owner and has only covered 8,189 miles from new. Delicately specified with a number of extras, the owner also opted for the official Aston Martin Racing Power Upgrade - augmenting the 5.2-litre twin-turbo V12 powerhouse to 630bhp and enhancing the already resonant exhaust tone.
