The 2017 Aston Martin DB11 made its official debut at the Geneva Motor Show sporting a swanky new look that brings the British automaker into a new era.
The coupe’s new look is highlighted by a long clamshell hood, new LED headlights, and a new take on that signature Aston Martin grille and tail lights. The profile is arguably the coupe’s best angle, as the gorgeously sloping roofline and exaggerated rear haunches easily makes this the best-looking car in the lineup. Of course, the new body has been aerodynamically optimized without compromising that luxurious look Astons are so famous for.

The DB11 is built on a new aluminum architecture that is lighter and stronger. The grand tourer is powered by a 5.2-liter twin-turbo V12 with stop/start, and the British automaker claims this is the most efficient DB in its history. Hooked up to an eight-speed automatic transmission, it has 600 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque, making the DB11 the most powerful production DB model ever. The DB11 has a top speed of 200 mph and can sprint to 62 mph in 3.9 seconds. Aston Martin also has plans for a V8-powered DB11 and will likely source that powerplant from AMG.

The setup will be controlled by a dial and an optional touchpad that understands smartphone gestures. A new self-parking feature and 360-degree camera is also available.
