Searching for an Aston Martin with all the on-road thrills of the DB class that’s also highly adaptable? Then take a closer look at the Aston Martin DB11 V8.
An elegant, exquisitely designed sports car, yes – but also agile, more fuel efficient and engaging to drive every day. Big, comfortable and beautifully appointed in double stitched leather, this is the Aston Martin you’d be happy to nip to Waitrose in and ferry the kids to school.
Family friendly luxury
The rear wheel drive Aston Martin DB11 V8 is the supercar you can readily justify as the family car. The DB11 V8’s generous interior with plenty of head and legroom, four seats and Isofix child-seat fitting points in the rear to keep your most precious cargo safe.
The boot is also impressively hardworking, by any standards, not just sports car norms. The 270 litres of space can easily accommodate two large suitcases, a family supermarket shop or a substantial amount of sporting kit.
And with the children tucked up in the back, you can make the most of heated seats, high centre console, 8" colour multimedia touchscreen, DAB radio, Bluetooth media streaming and wi-fi hub - all of which come as standard.
Even at night, parking and manoeuvring are virtually effortless, with front and rear sensors and a 360⁰ camera, plus a precision-made wide-angle camera at the rear.
The fish-eye lens picks up obstacles and moving vehicles the human eye might miss. The lens has even been pre-treated with an anti-static and anti-fog coating to ensure it always gives you a clear picture.
Comfort and performance
The DB11 V8 manages to perfectly balance impressive performance with incredible comfort, making light work of covering long distances at the wheel, or as a passenger.
At cruising speed, it’s smooth and quiet. Fire up Sport and Sport Plus modes and the DB11’s more athletic side springs into action.
There’s no doubt the Aston Martin DB11 V8’s twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre 503 bhp engine is fast.
Sprinting from 0 to 62mph in an impressive 4.2 seconds, its torque peak of 498lb ft kicks in at just 2000rpm, delivering awesome acceleration. While the svelte clamshell bonnet and sloping roof minimise wind resistance. The Aston Martin DB11 reviews say it all.
"Fire up the engine and immediately the V8 feels right at home, rumbling tunefully, ripping through the revs with an abundance of rich character."
