7 ways the 2017 Aston Martin DB11 is still a 'Bond' car you can buy

While the 2017 Aston Martin DB11 may not be the exact same car featured in “Spectre,” the slinking grand-tourer is every bit the DB10’s successor.

The differences? That car had an ejector seat and parachute; this car has active aerodynamics. That car slid through Vatican City at night; this car can actually be parked in your driveway.

After those, the gap narrows. Here are seven ways we say the Aston Martin DB11 is still a car worthy of 007.

On Her Majesty’s tires

See there? It has Bond’s name right on the damn tires! Bridgestone specially made the tires for the DB11, a “007” set of rubbers wrapped around aluminum 20-inch wheels. Technically the specs are identical to Corvette tires: 255/40 ZR20s in front, 295/35 ZR20s in back, but that story is boring.

Because V-12s aren’t enough

Not content with a V-12, like the DB9 had, Aston Martin let two turbos loose on the DB11’s powerplant and the world’s roads aren’t enough. The 600 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque is good enough for a 3.9-second standing run up to 60 mph, but excessive power is uncivilized. The V-12’s punch is a knockout.

For your downforce only

Not content to spoil the rear end with a fussy spoiler, Aston Martin engineers ducted air from the sides through the decklid to create a “virtual spoiler.” The air alleviates the need for an ugly spoiler (although there is still a mechanically rising Gurney flap that comes up to help) but the DB11’s seductive shape still holds at high speed.

Let’s block ads! (Why?)
