Nearly a year after it was first unveiled at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, the Aston Martin DB11 has finally reached our shores.
"We are excited to unveil the DB11 in the Philippines," said Aston Martin Asia Pacific President Patrik Nilsson. "As the first all-new ‘DB’ model since the introduction of the DB9, we are already experiencing significant demand for the DB11, demonstrating the strong affinity for Aston Martin in this market."
The DB11 is the first model to be launched under the British carmaker's 'Second Century' plan and is "the bold new figurehead of the illustrious 'DB' bloodline and an authentic, dynamic sporting GT in the finest Aston Martin tradition."
The front end of the DB11 is unmistakably Aston Martin with its signature grille. Its most outstanding feature though is its one-piece aluminum hood that has cutouts for the multi-element LED headlights to shine through and eliminates the unsightly gap between the hood and the front fenders. Housed underneath the lightweight, elongated bonnet is an all-new 5.2-liter twin-turbocharged V12 engine that puts out 600hp and 700Nm of torque, making it not just the first turbocharged series-production Aston Martin but the most powerful production DB model ever. As such, it's also the fastest and most dynamic with a top speed of 322kph and a zero to 100kph sprint time of 3.9 seconds.
“Two years ago we brought the brand to the Philippines, and since then these beautiful, luxurious British sports cars have graced our roads as unmistakable and peerless icons," said Aston Martin Manila President and Chairman Marc Tagle. "And today, the Aston Martin that everyone’s been waiting for has arrived. The launch of the DB11 rightfully places Aston Martin as a leading brand in the ultra-high luxury segment in the Philippines, and we are delighted with the strong order bank we have on this model."
Delivery of the first local units of the Aston Martin DB11 will begin in March 2017.
