    Re: Aston DB11

    if we look at astons as gt cars, i do not see a real performance problem. performance is plenty for normal on road driving. while certainly not fastest, the performance of my rapide s for example is ample to enjoy the car.

    Hard to believe they are using an aftermarket info screen.


    Re: Aston DB11

    Steampunk interior :/

    Don't know how it will translate to USD, but base price is 155K GBP, or about 215K USD. So the new car is priced $70K under the flagship Vanquish and is better in probably every way? Ouch to all new Vanquish sitting on lots...

    They're saying its from Mercedes. They even took the s class joystick and just wrapped it in leather.

    I guess that's why the first car will be delivered by end of year.  Anyway, they said that they already got 1000 orders for the DB11. Good for them if true.


    Re: Aston DB11

    Not convinced about the touch buttons. If they are anything like the Escalade ones if will be a big let down..

    That explains it, I hope it isn't contagious.

    AM is loosing a little bit of their soul there. One of their motto was that everything on the car was to be unique to AM...


    Re: Aston DB11

    And then they saw the price of unique components :)

    The V8 Vantages had nav, key and vents from the Volvo S40.  At least they're moving upmarket for borrowing purposes.

     Theres nothing unique about the current interior. Mostly leftovers from late 90s Ford.

    Nav totally, but keys and vents too?

    Clearly you haven't been in a 90s Ford recently to refresh your memory.


    Re: Aston DB11

    SciFrog,

    Well they did chrome the vent surrounds and cover the key fob in leather, but they're the same.  As I searched photos to paste, the mirror and window controls (and maybe headlight switch) are also from the S40.


    Re: Aston DB11

    I love AM but Everything in the current db9 came from Ford and Volvo (which used to be owned by ford till 2010) There was a pic of scraped off AM key where you could see the Volvo logo. 

    Btw, same thing was said about RR and Bentley when they were taken over by the Germans. Look at them now. They're better than ever!

    Point taken.

    They tried to make the cars with almost unique parts...

    Car is worse in person--it doesn't know what it is supposed to be..


    Re: Aston DB11

    Sad to hear that...I had such high expectations but the more I look at it the less I like it surprise


    Re: Aston DB11

    even those rims tell it all, way too much design lines and BS. It was such a perfect clean base, it's almost surprising how they managed to ruin it this much.. the DB9 was almost perfect

    I agree, new design is much too busy. The old one was clean and modern, timeless.

    I agree, the facelifted DB9 is near perfection

    to my eyes, the most beautiful modern Aston
