You don’t buy an Aston Martin for its fuel consumption figures. But you do buy it to drive. So could this be your everyday supercar. The one you can do the daily commute in, take the children to school and go to the golf club in?
Yes, is the short answer.
Test Out The Practicality Of A DB11 For Yourself
If you’re not convinced, Aston Martin Bristol has both the DB11 V12 and the Aston Martin DB11 V8 models for you to try for yourself.
For starters there are four seats and a proper boot. The rear seats have Isofix child seat fitting points which makes the Aston Martin DB11 perfect for those with young children.
Up front, the passenger and driver’s space has plenty of both legroom and headroom. It’s been designed for comfort and it makes for a relaxing environment on long journeys - it’s a Grand Tourer, after all.
A Boot Big Enough For Two Sets Of Golf Clubs!
The boot is large by any standard, not just in sports car realms. It offers 270 litres of space, easily enough for a couple of large suitcases - or the weekly shopping, school bags or sports kit if you really do need to use this as your everyday car.
It’s also worth bearing in mind that the Aston Martin DB11 Volante has a slightly smaller boot than its hard-top siblings at 224 litres, but that’s still enough to fit two sets of golf clubs!
Perfectly Equipped For Trips To The Shops Or San Tropez
For the driver there’s a high centre console and an 8” colour multimedia touchscreen, plus a DAB radio, Bluetooth media streaming and a wi-fi hub, all as standard.
Just like it’s DB9 predecessor, the Aston Martin DB11 has rear-wheel drive although the V12 engine has dropped from 6.0 to 5.2 litres. But there’s no drop in performance thanks to the addition of turbochargers which help to deliver an incredible 600bhp. This takes the Aston Martin DB11 V12 from 0-60mph in 3.7 seconds. Top speed is 208mph.
While you’re unlikely to need all that performance and horsepower on the daily commute, it certainly makes for an exhilarating drive to and from work - and imagine going home on a Friday knowing you have a whole weekend to enjoy everything the Aston Martin DB11 has to offer.
Despite The Power Output This Aston Martin Returns Respectable MPG Figures
And the fuel consumption? With a gentle foot on the accelerator pedal you can hope to achieve between 25 to 29mpg. It may not be up there with superminis, but for a supercar it’s a very respectable figure.
