You Can Now Build Your Own Aston Martin DB11

Aston Martin’s DB11 was one of the most exciting vehicles revealed at the Geneva Motor Show this week and now you can build your dream version of this lust-worthy machine with just a few clicks of the mouse.

A configurator has gone live on the company’s website and, as expected, it allows you to play around with a slew of different customization options. You can pick your favorite paint color, select an appropriate wheel design and choose a hue for various parts like body trim, brake calipers, grille finishers and much more.

However, what’s not customizable is found under the hood. DB11s are powered by a 5.2-liter twin-turbocharged V12 engine. This unit delivers 600 brake horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque. It’s matched to an aft-mounted eight-speed automatic transmission that sends power to the rear wheels through a limited-slip differential.

All told, this car should top out north of 200 miles an hour and scamper from a standstill to 62 miles an hour in less than 4.0 seconds. How’s that for performance? We thought so … it’s excellent!

Helping this beauty run like the wind, or rather, like a hurricane, is a lightweight body. The DB11’s bones are made largely from aluminum and so are its door structures. Special attention in the wind tunnel keept this car’s overall shape as slippery as a sea otter’s.

When it’s time to knock things back a few notches, massive brakes help eradicate all of that velocity. The car’s two-piece steel front rotors measure a whopping 400 millimeters in diameter, that’s nearly 16 inches!

Electrically boosted steering, automatically adjusting dampers and 20-inch rims round out this exotic package.
