What model of car is this?
The Aston Martin DB11 is a grand tourer produced by British luxury car manufacturer Aston Martin since 2016. It debuted at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2016 as a replacement to the DB9. It is the first model launched in Aston Martin's 'second century' plan and the first car launched since the company's tie-up with Daimler AG.
If any automaker knows how to make a beautiful car, it's Aston Martin. The DBS Superleggera is both the brand's newest model and the best expression of its current design language.
While it is based on the DB11, the DBS' bodywork is unique save for the roof. The whale shark–like grille design somehow isn't too big, its yawning opening harking back to Astons of yore, and the squared-off rear, short front overhang, and wide fenders give it excellent proportions.
New design features include new roof strakes that separate the body from the roof, available in black or body colour, and the "Aeroblade" intakes in the front strakes.
The bonnet is a 'clam-shell' design made from a single piece of aluminium. The DB11 does not use the older Aston Martin VH platform but makes use of an all-new riveted and adhesive-bonded aluminium platform that shifts the emphasis from extrusions to stampings to create more cockpit space which would also underpin future Aston Martin models; including the Vantage.
The DBS' more traditional detailing relative to the more futuristically styled DB11 further helps it earn the b-word descriptor.
