This is an Aston Martin, so naturally the styling and body are major considerations. And the new Aston Martin DB11 V8 gets a new design to distinguish its exceptional traits. New wheel finishes, headlamp bezels and bonnet mesh are unique to the V8, along with new trim inlays, script badges and a choice of three designer specifications shared with the DB11 V12.


Aston Martin serves up a suite of technology to reflect the high levels of performance exuded from the engine. A full-colour 12” display presents driver information while an 8” screen is reserved for infotainment functions, such as controlling the sat-nav or selecting your favourite music. And you can expect nothing short of premium sound quality with the Aston Martin Premium Audio or Bang & Olufsen Beo Sound system. Alongside the sumptuous design of the interior, Aston Martin deliver the pinnacle of comfort and convenience with its host of driver-focused technology in the DB11 V8.


Relaxation, security and safety are vital to every Aston Martin, and none more so than the V8, which comes with plenty of features to keep you safe on the road. New to the DB11 V8 is Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM), an invaluable technology that helps you sense if a vehicle is anywhere to either side of your car while you’re driving, extending rearwards from the side mirrors – your potential blind spots.

If BSM senses a vehicle, it will only alert you if it’s overtaking, or in your blind spot, while a secondary warning system warns you if a vehicle is in or entering your blind spot during a lane change. It’s this kind of smart technology built into the Aston Martin DB11 V8 that can potentially guard against incidents, and a true example of the car’s enhanced driving experience.


Set extremely low and far back in the chassis, the engine positioning is crucial to the dynamic performance of the new DB11 V8. This has been achieved through new bespoke engine mounts and a lower, slimmer wet sump, which work together to give greater sporting performance with improved efficiency and economy.

It’s a key engineering factor that gives the DB11 V8 greater hold and stability on the road, improves weight distribution and enhances its driving dynamics, allowing it to deploy more of its formidable performance, more of the time. The DB11 V8 serves up 503bhp, which offers a 0 to 62mph time of just four seconds and will allow the car to carry on accelerating up to a blistering top speed of 187mph.
