David Brown would be proud to see his legacy continues, as we have been patiently waiting for the Aston Martin DB11 for some time now. The future of Aston-Martin depends on the success and profitability of this new supercar. If it was a normal car, the launch would be uploading new commands into the robots and new dies into the presses. But Aston-Martin builds cars by hand, so the artisans and apprentices must learn by example.
In a press release earlier this morning, the factory workers, along with CEO Dr Andy Palmer, said they are “go for launch.” Dr Palmer has stated that he will personally inspect the first 1,000 cars to ensure the quality of the brand. Cars built before today will hang around as promo models and stunt doubles, but they are not legal to drive. As with all pre-production cars, the light at the end of the tunnel is coming from the crusher. If you are wondering why they skipped DB10 production, its because the DB11 is not an evolution of the DB9. They started with a blank canvas and ended up with something revolutionary.
A new twin turbo 5.2 liter V12 makes 600 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque. The body is also a sharp departure from their past, incorporating the latest in aerodynamics for optimal traction. We have a few weeks before they cross the pond, so here are a few great deals on DB9’s to hold you over. Stay with us for all your Aston-Martin news.
