There was much debate on what the design of the 2017 Aston Martin DB11 car was going to look like. Much of the mystery was ended when the model of the car made its debut on the big screen, hinting to us what we may expect. Now with the release date at hand, there are more information about the design of DB11. Up front, it is going to have smaller headlamps and a grille which is insured by the one see in the  DB10 car. The front end also sees a revised hood and all of this details are going to appear on the model come the showcasing in Geneva.

The side view of the car actually bares more differences compared to the DB10. It retains the long trademark hood but adds sportier rear haunches, a different look on the roofline and quarter windows, and the rear overhang is shorter. The rear end of the DB11 actually copies more from the DB10 than any other part of the car. First of all, they have a similar decklid and a similar diffuser. It excludes the large spoiler this time but adds the C-shaped taillights that further extend into the trunk lid which go towards the Aston Martin badge which is found in the middle.

Some other unique features that the Aston Martin DB11 adds is a new AeroBlade which has become a trademark addition of Aston Martin cars since 2015. It acts as a virtual spoiler as redirects air through the bodywork.

Interior Review

The interior of the 2017 Aston Martin DB11 has been completely redesigned as they have started from scratch, but they have not gone too much away from their classic GT design. The dashboard has a clean design and uses a wide center stack as the twin rectangular A/C sit between the infotainment screen and its controls. These parts are perhaps familiar with the previous car, but the race-inspired instrument cluster,  the flat-bottom steering wheel and the 12-inch TFT display is all new for this model.

The car also comes with a new TFT infotainment screen which uses rotary control and an optional touchpad. You also get completely updated satellite navigation, an auto-park assist that features a 360-degree camera and a premium  audio system.

The roominess has been significantly improved compared to the DB9 as there have been 2.5 inches added to the wheelbase of this car. This benefits the headroom and legroom specs for the rear passengers and the luggage department is now also very large so you can put in two big trolley bags if you wish.

The model will be perhaps the most aggressive looking Aston Martin produced in years. They have made it like this in order to capture the nature of the movies which have been becoming more serious and realistic along with the development of the character of 007, thus the model is getting a serious and aggressive look to go with the James’ character.

The latest 2017 Aston Martin DB10 makes a perfect example of what the company has decided to go with and the design language they are planning to incorporate for the future after putting the VH platform to rest. The model still remains a recognizable Aston Martin car, although it looks completely different and does so by blending the new features with the trademark looks of the old DB9 model. The model retains the sloping hood along with the signature large front grill in its front. It manages to innovate it by adding a lower air dam  which results in a much more aggressive look for the car now.

The side profile of the 2017 Aston Martin DB10 showcases much larger and beefier wheel arches which exemplify a crisp look. Muscular shoulders combined with deeply sculpted sills with carbon-fiber side skirts are what makes the car so memorable now and what gives it its latest appearance. The front fenders have a deeper crease but the  trademark vent with upper chrome trim has been retained. The cabin is positioned lower and gives the car a sleek appearance as it sports a smaller quarter-glass area. The rear comes back with  short rear overhang and slim taillights. The car also gives us a metallic-gray paint job and some very unique 10-spoke wheels.

Interior

The interior of the 2017 Aston Martin DB10 looks quite amazing. As it was expected the car is going to use a bespoke cockpit and will replace the majority of the styling cues seen in the DV9 model. The traditional center stack has been completely removed and they have decided to offer a new kind of a model with the sorts of amenities added as well. The cabin has a much more cleaner look than anything else and manages to make a real fancy looking James Bond model.

The instrument cluster actually has some race car details as it uses some bigger gauges, sporting a design with one middle and two additional units on the side. The interior is completely covered with  fine leather  and is stitched by white threads and a Aston Martin steering wheel is no longer used as it has been substituted with a flat-bottom one with Alcantara grip areas. This might also provide insight for future Aston Martin models as for now people seem to like it and would like to see it used for many other cars coming under the banner of the British automaker.

Engine Specs

The powertrain of the 2017 Aston Martin DB10 is an exciting one as the model might start the use of the brand-new, 4.0-liter V-8 unit. The Brits have already signed an arrangement with the Daimler group making the engine already available for Aston Martin, but the first time we have seen it in action was the Mercedes-AMG GT sports car and later it was introduced in other AMG models.

The powertrain is going to use the AMG’s seven-speed, dual-clutch transmission and is also going to add a bunch of other electrical systems which are going to enhance the performance of the engine. This is going to result in an output of 500 horsepower, making the 0-60 mph acceleration less than 4 seconds and a top speed of 180 mph.

2015 Aston Martin Vantage V8 GT

Finally a “James Bond” brand comes up with something anyone can afford. Well, almost anyone. This 2015 Aston Martin Vantage V8 GT is a car not special in anything. It is not a fastest, most beautiful car you will see. But there is something about it. Maybe a brand itself, maybe because of our childhood memories of a famous agent driving Aston Martin…

In this review we are going to mention a couple of good and bad things about the specs, looks and the future of this car.

2015 Aston Martin Vantage V8 GT Exterior

2015 Aston Martin Vantage V8 GT exterior has that sporty vibe. It is a car with a lot of history in its veins. All the way since the first “Vantage” in 1977.

The design is a ten years old, and practically nothing has changed since 2005, and the first new breed of “Vantage”. But do not mistake that for bad, hell no! Design of this car has always been beautiful. It doesn’t look outdated at all. It is a handmade vehicle so it brings some serious weight with itself, and it is a modern car. Even in this high tech world, handmade cars kept its place as something for “high class”.

It came with green chassis for testing with yellow stripe around the roofline and grille.

It looks like the marketing department has slept over this one. I mean, designers did the good job, and left us without all the useless makeup that clouds users mind. Everything is covered with the fine high grade leather and wood, and it looks pretty expensive and elegant. Seats are extremely comfortable, and placed perfectly for the ultimate enjoyment in driving (even for bigger and taller drivers).

There is nothing in this car that can pull your mind from driving. Crystal ignition key is placed high on the central console and it begs you to flip it. And when you do that, the magic of this car pulls you in, and keeps you safely in its roar.

Engine of 2015 Aston Martin Vantage V8 GT

Well this 2015 Aston Martin Vantage V8 GT engine is a real secret magic wand. The one thing, that this car makes, a perfect combination of design and engineering. As soon as you flip that key, and hear that roar of all the 430 HP, you are covered with adrenalin and the need for hitting that gas paddle, silencing all the pedestrians around you.

Maybe the design of the cabin is not that well, or it has been made like that in purpose, but you can hear the true roar of this machine inside. I mean, that raw sound of eight pistons hitting and growling is irreplaceable . That sound cannot be manufactured with the help of electronics like it is done nowadays in a mass production cars. Every single part has been handmade for a total pleasure of the driver.

The transmission is a 6 speed manual or 7 speed paddle operated “speed shift 2” automated manual transmission (single clutch).

The engine is 4.7 liter V8 with 361 lbs-ft of torque. And it goes from 0-60 in 4.6 seconds, which is not that good but the acceleration is not what it counts here. I know that this is an age of tuned cars, where everyone competes with the acceleration but this car is not like that. It’s for people whose cars are not their symbols of wealth but the branch of their souls, where they can find peace and strength once again.

2015 Aston Martin Vantage V8 GT Price

The entire time I was writing this text, the one thing never dropped out from my mind. The 2015 Aston Martin Vantage V8 GT price. Aston Martin has always built fast, beautiful, expensive cars, but this is the first one that is not in a “WW3” with a home budget.

That may be strange, but when we take the entire picture into the consideration: engineering, design of a car, and such good performance, its 99, 990 dollars of a factory suggested price for a stripped model (nothing that affects its performance), is a perfect bargain. For some. I just have to wait for money to drop from the sky or a rich distant relative, to buy one.
