Henry Ford offered to build the Model T in any color, as long as it was black. Mass production and assembly lines are not forgiving when it comes to special requests. That’s why Aston Martin has resisted the urge to update their methods. The DB11 might offer the latest in technology, but it is assembled by humans instead of robots.
The assembly plant in Warwickshire is not filled with workers, they are artists. Craftspeople who have apprenticed for years in order to be experts in the automotive arts. This makes each Aston Martin a blank canvas, and they are awaiting inspiration from you. Needless to say, there is almost no limit to what they are capable of. That’s why Aston Martin have launched a configurator to help streamline the ordering process.
Because the options are almost endless, the design team has preloaded 11 stunning examples of the DB11. These “Designer Specification” cars have names like “Open Aura”, and “Twilight Tour”. The wildest of the group is “Shanghai Fashionista”. It wears a brilliant exterior of “Frosted Glass Blue Ivory”. This is a fancy pearlescent finish that provides a brilliant contrast to the “Vivid Red” convertible top.Take a look at these and tell us which one you prefer.
The formal announcement of the DB11 Volante was made via press release. Colors and options are nice to see, the but the big news is under the hood. Gone is the twin turbo V12 from the DB11 coupe. In a deal with Mercedes-Benz, the DB11 Volante is powered by the AMG 4.0-liter twin turbo V8. Tuned to make 510 metric horsepower, it will also offer less weight and better fuel economy for the new car. Your local dealer is now accepting orders, which will be fulfilled in Q1 of next year.
