The Aston Martin DB11 is the next biggest thing to come from the automaker as it replaces the DB9. It’s such a hot topic already, Aston reports over 1,400 have been pre-ordered, and it hasn’t even been a month yet.
The news breaks in from Motor Report, who supposedly spoke with Aston’s current head of operations, Andy Palmer.
The plan with the last generation of Aston Martin cars is to basically sell more, given the company operated on around 4,000 units sold in the past. Now, they want to bump that up to 7,000 per year, thanks to a new platform and some parts and supply help from Mercedes-AMG.
The 5.2L V12 in the DB11 however looses a bit of charm for grunt, by no longer being naturally-aspirated and utilizing two snails to make 600hp and 516 lb-ft of torque. An eight-speed automatic, will help channel the power to the rear wheels.
Prices are set at $211,995.
