The inaugural example of Aston Martin’s ‘Second Century’ lineup, the DB11, has officially been unveiled at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show.
“DB11 is the most powerful, most efficient and most dynamically gifted DB model in Aston Martin’s history,” states the brand in a press release. This is thanks to a new 5.2-liter V12 engine twin turbo and a bonded aluminum body.
