Aston Martin has long hedged its brand image on the success of its grand touring cars and the DB series has been at the forefront of their lineup for almost half a century. The DB series was first introduced in 1948 with the launch of the DB1, a 2-seat roadster powered by an inline 4-cylinder engine. The DB series would go through many changes over the next half a century, transforming itself over time into drop-dead gorgeous grand touring vehicles with the technology and the power to match its looks. Although the cars always produced remained true in form, the DB series name was shelved from 1972 until 1994 when the DB7 was released. This was replaced by the excellent DB9 in 2004 and in 2016 Aston again gave the car a thorough styling and technological overhaul with the introduction of the DB11. While some design aspects remain from its long heritage, the DB11 featured an all-new riveted and adhesive-bonded aluminum platform, shifting construction from extrusions to stampings in effort to create more cockpit space and bring the DB series into the modern generation. The DB11 comes in multiple variants including a V12, V8, Volante, and the most modern and power fun version, the DB11 AMR. Power for the V12 models comes from a twin-turbocharged 5.2-liter V12 engine, making it the first turbocharged production car from Aston Martin. Power is rated at 600hp and 516 lb/ft of torque and is sent to the rear wheels via a rear-mounted 8-speed automatic transmission manufactured by ZF Friedrichshafen. The DB11 has received massive amounts of praise from motoring journalists, who greatly enjoy not only the phenomenal good looks but the chassis and engine as well. The DB11 still remains in production today, as Aston Martins bread and butter grand touring offering of their current lineup.
