Aston Martin DB11 Spied in Production Body

The Aston Martin DB11 is taking shape and this is our best look yet at the production model.

Caught testing by spy photographers in the U.K., the latest prototype sheds layers of shapeless, rigid plastic to reveal key details of the DB11’s styling.

It appears that the DB10 that appeared in Spectre didn’t influence the design of the DB11 as much as expected, with the traditional Aston Martin grille remaining in use. There are newly-shaped headlights lighting the way while the front bumper sports a chin spoiler that extends quite a bit to match the curvature of the hood.

Perhaps most interesting is the air inlet that can be seen on the C-Pillar close to the rear window. Likely serving as an aerodynamic element, the air inlets will aid in providing additional downforce and high-speed stability.

The rear of the Aston Martin DB11 looks quite aggressive with red LED tail light strips, thin overall tail light clusters and a subtle lip spoiler on the trunk. Peeking out from the rear valence are bold exhaust tips while it appears the British automaker won’t shy away from sharper lines and angles to give the DB11 more style than the current DB9.
