Aston Martin DB11 Launches In India
Aston Martin has surprisingly launched the DB11 Supercar in India priced at INR. 4.27 crore (ex showroom, Delhi). The car can be booked at infinity Motors while the deliveries will only be commenced from January or February 2017 onward.
The all new Aston Martin DB11 has replaced the DB9 and its main highlight definitely has to be its new powertrain and a new aluminium platform. Powering this new Coupe is an all new 5.2 Litre, twin turbocharged, V12 unit which is capable of producing an impressive 600 Hp of peak power at 6, 500 rpm and an equally impressive 700 Nm of torque at 1, 500 rpm. The engine is paired to a 8 speed automatic transmission. Now with these massive figures the newly introduced DB11 has become the most powerful DB series car every built. Now this car is not only about styling and premium interiors but also performance. Talking about performance the Aston martin DB11 can sprint from 0-100 km/h mark in just 3.9 seconds, while it can touch top speed of 322 km/h mark.
The new Grand Tourer has been built keeping the superior handling and comfort of the passengers in mind. Inside this Coupe gets all the technology from Daimler AG, the car gets a huge 12 inch TFT LCD display which replaces the analogue instrument cluster while a separate 8 inch TFT screen is also positioned on the centre dashboard. Furthermore the interior could also be customized according to the owners choice.
2017 Aston Martin DB11
Aston Martin has taken all the risk and played it big this time, atleast that is what comes to your mind when you actually look at the all new DB11. This thing looks insane and what is appears Aston Martin has actually lifted this car straight from the future James Bond movie set. The DB11 promises to combine the best of latest technologies available at this moment along with an exception design and a powerful engine.
So in short the new Aston Martin DB11 which will replace the existing DB9 underpins a completely new aluminum structure which will also support the future Aston Martin cars, an all new 5.2 Litre, twin turbocharged, V12 unit which is capable of producing an impressive 600 Hp of peak power, an aerodynamic exterior body shell and all the luxury that one actually searches for in a car of this stature. To be frank Aston Martin although competes with the Lamborghini, Ferrari in this segment but they never actually competed in the sheer performance space, instead their reputation is built entirely on elegance, quality of refinement and luxury which they are able to pack inside their each and every car.
Although the 600 Hp might not sound much in today’s standards especially when we think about its rivals but the car’s overall design and its ultra luxurious interiors surely can impress even the strictest critic. There is no doubt that the new DB11 can throw all the punches and kicks at its enemies but does not actually miss its rich British Accent either.

This particular car is a Hypercar which has been built exclusively for the track. This is surely one powerful car which produces 800+ hp of peak power.

Watch the Aston Martin Vulcan Go Wild On Track: Video
“As wild as things can get”, the Aston Martin Vulcan is a wild beast and it shows when you watch the intro part of the video. Screeching brakes, wild exhaust note and brutal acceleration are the three words which define this wild beast which Aston Martin built to take on the likes of the new Ferrari FXX k and the Mclaren P1 GTR.
Carbon fiber chassis top, wild looks and that powerful 7.0 Litre naturally aspirated V12 engine under its hood. Talk about power and you won’t be disappointed a bit because this sportscar is capable of producing about 820 Bhp of peak power. Although the Vulcan is not a light supercar because it weighs a healthy 1350 kilos but that does not actually take the fun away from the person driving the car a bit. Just like the acceleration the brakes too are superb in the Vulcan.
This car is no joke so getting a proper hang if it takes some time and once you learn how to handle the car then this 820 Hp beats will dance to your music on the track. In this video you can hear the sweet exhaust not and the way the car accelerates on the track which definitely words cannot describe.
Watch and enjoy the video and you can also read our entire review of the Aston Martin Vulcan here if you want to know more about the car.
Aston Martin DB11 looks absolutely stunning: Video
Aston Martin DB11 is the latest offering from the British luxury sportcar maker. Already unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show, Aston Martin DB11 looks like a blend between the famous DB9 and the DB10, the later one shot into fame as the Bond car in the latest James Bond flick Spectre.
Aston Martin has released a new video of the DB11, which visually describes the design, aerodynamics and the powertrain of the car. Take a look at the video here.
The DB11 replaces the DB9 in the company’s enviable lineup. When Aston Martin first showcased the DB10, it gave us a preview of the DB11. Now the car has arrived, we can see it truly takes inspiration from the DB9, and plenty of design cues from the DB10 as well. The signature Aston grille is there with much more sharpness, the headlamps look smaller and sleeker than the DB9, a revamped front bumper, restyled front fender vents, large wheel arches, beefy and muscular rear fender, perfect coupe roofline and many more. The rear fenders look heavily inspired from the DB10, while the car gets silver arches at both sides of the roof, which we have already seen in the DBX concept.
The DB11 is based on the DBX concept and it rides on the VH aluminium platform. The juice comes from a 5.2 litre twin turbocharged V12 engine mated to both an eight speed automatic and a six speed manual transmission. This powertrain will churn out around 600 hp peak power. There will be an AMG variant of the car as well, which will get power from an AMG sourced 4.0 litre turbocharged V8 engine pumping out 550 hp peak power.

That’s something interesting. The engine featured here is probably to make its way under hood of Aston Martin DB11, which will the next model from the British automaker.
Aston Martin DB11 will be based on the DBX Aston Martin concept. Although in recent past Aston Martin has unveiled the DB10, which was built on the DBX platform and used as the Bond car in the last 007 flick “Spectre”, but the DB10 not meant to built for public.

Aston Martin DB5 is truly an iconic car of all time. It was featured in 6 different James Bond films, which is truly an achievement for any car in the world. First featured as Bondmobile in the Goldfinger, Aston Martin DB5’s last film was Skyfall, where we saw it got destroyed by the villain.
The iconic DB5 had quite a few interesting features like a machine guns, bullet proof shield, revolving registration plates and gear knob with ejector seat button. Recently Aston Martin has released videos of limited edition DB5 1/3 scale model, which actually looks cool. The model comes with operational Goldfinger gadgets like operational bullet proof shield; fog lamp covered model machine guns, revolving registration plates. All of these can be operated from a remote control. The collector’s model comes at just 100 units built by the British luxury car manufacturer.
The latest James Bond flick Spectre is getting released worldwide. Despite Bond’s action, chasing scenes, and fighting scenes with all those exclusive gadgets; the latest Bondmobile Aston Martin DB10 has turned heads. The Aston Martin DB10 comes exclusively built for James Bond. It comes built with a special order from the Bond film makers.
Aston Martin has been the James Bond associate for more than half a century. To celebrate the association Aston Martin has launched special edition car in form of Aston Martin DB9 Bond Edition. The car was showcased in various events and in the Spectre premieres too. Now as the James Bond film is releasing in various countries, Aston Martin is showcasing the Bond cars along with the Aston Martin DB10 in various places of England. As we know, the DB10 will go under auction in a few days, before that this tour comes as a promotional event for the car and the film as well.
James Bond films are not all about eye popping actions, exclusive gadgets; but also some stunning cars as well. As the latest Bond flick is on the theatres at present, there is a car show about to start from 18th November, which will be named as “Bond in Motion”.
The show will display the largest collection of original James Bond vehicles, which were featured in the films. In this exhibition event there will several Bond cars like the Aston Martin DB10 of James Bond, Jaguar C-X75 of Hinx, and Franz Oberhauser’s Rolls Royce Wraith; which all were featured in the film Spectre. In the history of London Film Museum this is the most successful exhibition, and it presently features over a total of 150 original artifacts from all those 24 Bond films. The artifacts include Bond cars and other vehicles, miniatures, concept art and storyboards from the 007 films. The highlights of the exhibition include several iconic cars such as the Aston Martin DB5 from the film Goldeneye; the ‘Wet Nellie’ Lotus Esprit S1 from The Spy Who Loved Me; the Rolls Royce Phantom III from Goldfinger; and the ‘Little Nellie’ Wallis WA 116 Agile Autogyro from You Only Live Twice. As the 24th Bond flick Spectre is gaining hype and all the attention from all the corners of the world, it is expected that this exhibition too will garner attraction among Bond lovers.
James Bond has arrived again to conquer over his enemies in the latest 007 flick Spectre. In the meantime, Bond’s best associate, which is not a man, but a car, to be precise Aston Martin DB10 has caught people’s eyes and mind. Aston Martin, who are the associate of James Bond for more than half a century has released a documentary film on the Aston Martin DB10, James Bond’s latest possession. The film is named as “DB10: Built for Bond” and it was shown for the first time at the Great Court, Blenheim Palace, England.
At the event of the premiere of “DB10: Built for Bond”, Aston Martin, the British luxury auto maker has arranged an impressive lineup of current and classic Aston Martin cars. The one hour special documentary shows the creation of DB10, which was manufactured and developed specifically for James Bond in Spectre. Incidentally, the car was built in house by Aston Martin’s design and engineering teams in just 6 months time span. The documentary film was created by FIN London, and it was filmed over an 18 months period, with more than 120 hours of material captured in ultra high definition 4K resolution video.
This documentary film features interviews with the particular Aston Martin team which was responsible for creating Bond’s DB10. Spectre producer Michael G. Wilson, director Sam Mendes and Bond’s roll actor Daniel Craig also shared their thoughts and views on the collaboration with Aston Martin. Spectre special effects supervisor Chris Corbould, stunt coordinator Gary Powell and stunt driver Mark Higgins also discussed their experiences with DB10 in the film. There was a question and answer session with Mark Higgins, which was followed by the premiere of the film. Interestingly, the guests watched the film sitting in their Aston Martins in the lawn of the palace.
James Bond is back. So is the Aston Martin as the ‘Bondmobile’. Evidently, the Aston Martin DB10 is the first sports car in half a century which was built exclusively for James Bond, the most famous secret agent in the world. Since the first unveiling of this car it has been making the headlines all around the globe, and in the world premiere at the Royal Albert Hall in London, the DB10 took the centre stage and literally stole away the limelight.
The Aston Martin DB10 carries forward the legacy of the present generation DB9 but is is based on Aston Martin’s future DBX platform.
This stunning looking car already gave us a preview of the DB11, which will be the successor of the present generation DB9. Aston Martin’s association with James Bond goes longer than half a century. It all started with the iconic Aston Martin DB5 in the 1964 film Goldfinger, and the DB10 comes the last model in the lineup. It was made exclusively for the latest Bond flick Spectre, which made it the first such car.
Commenting on the occasion of Aston Martins DB10’s debut Dr. Andy Palmer, who is the Aston Martin CEO, has said, “It was a pure delight to see the DB10 put to such spectacular use on the big screen. The ongoing love affair between Bond and Aston Martin has endured for more than half a century and I’m pleased to see the DB10 put through its paces in Spectre.” Incidentally, Spectre is the 24th James Bond film and also the 12th to feature an Aston Martin sports car.
Once again it’s the time for James Bond lovers to rejoice, as the latest 007 flick ‘Spectre’ is hitting the theatres today in UK and Ireland, which will be followed by the later releases worldwide in a few days. Like any other Bond movies, Spectre is not just all about exclusive gadgets, eye popping exotic locations, high dosage of action and drama, Bond girls; but also about the gorgeous automobiles. While the entire world loves these movies for James Bond, we have another reason to be fanatic about Bond movies. That is the Bondmobiles (Yes, crafted and manufactured for James Bond).
Aston Martin cherishes a 50 year long close association with the greatest spy character of the world, since the Sean Connery era started with iconic Aston Martin DB5. We have seen the iconic Bond car DB5 took its last breath in the previous Bond movie ‘Skyfall’, which eventually made the way for an all new Bond car, and here is the DB10. This car is based on the British luxury brand’s DBX platform, which will be powering the future Aston Martins.
This Aston Martin DB10 is a bespoke sports coupe specially made for James Bond, and as Aston Martin already declared, there is no chance of this car to enter the production arena. Only 10 units of this car were made at the Gaydon, Aston Martin’s headquarter; and all of these cars will be auctioned after the release of the movie.
As always this Bondmobile comes with exclusively exotic features, and stunning look. Here we tried to bring the best of it to you.

In a few days we are about to see the Aston Martin DB10 in action with the most famous secret agent of the world James Bond behind the steering of this amazing sports coupe. Just before the imminent release of the next blockbuster 007 flick ‘Spectre’ Aston Martin has showcased the DB10 at the Lancaster House, London; where Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and visiting Chinese President Mr Xi Jinping.
The association between James Bond and Aston Martin has been for last five decades, and in the upcoming movie we are about to see a brand new Aston Martin DB10 in action, which was built exclusively for James 007 Bond. This special model was built in extreme limited numbers, which was just 10 units, and as we know, these 10 DB10s will go in auction after the global release of the movie. This DB10 was on show at the Lancaster House, London; as a part of Aston Martin’s ongoing support for the British government’s successful ‘GREAT Britain’ campaign, which showcases the best of what the UK has to offer to inspire the world and encourage people to visit, do business, invest and study in the UK. As Aston Martin is a key supporter of UKTI’s GREAT initiative, and has provided examples of its luxury sports cars for display at a number of the campaign’s functions around the world.
Commenting on the occasion, the CEO of the Aston Martin, Dr. Andy Palmer has said, “I’m naturally very happy to see Aston Martin playing such a prominent role in today’s events at Lancaster House, supporting the ‘GREAT Britain’ initiative through the display of the DB10 built for ‘Spectre’.”
He is James Bond. The most suave, attractive, earthy, raw British secret agent of all time from MI6. As we are all gearing up to see him in action once again in Spectre, we are also cherishing the visual experiences of our previous meetings. And when it is Mr. Bond, how can we forget about the delicate and state of the art cars he drove all around the world for all this time?
In a few days from now on, James will be seen speeding in his brand new Aston Martin DB10 through the banks of Tiber in Rome. As we have already seen, James was speeding in his stunning Aston Martin DB10, on the banks of Tiber in a high speed chase scene, which involved a Jaguar CX75. Agent 007 has a keen taste for everything British, from dressing to cars, which we know very well. He always preferred the British luxury car brand for his first choice. Just like the way he grips his MI6 issue Walther PPK, he grips the Aston Martin steering, delicately though, like the way he holds his girls; Bond girls we meant to say.
Bond cars are always as stunning as Bond movies are. These cars come equipped with state of the art gadgets, various unique defensive mechanisms and features. We have seen Bond’s first Aston Martin; the DB5 came with an ejector seat. This time too, Bond’s latest Aston Martin DB10 will come with a flame thrower, as we have seen in the fast paced trailers of the movie Spectre.
Not only the Aston Martins, James drove many other brands of cars too, like Alpha Romeo, Bentley, BMW, Citroen, Lotus, Toyota, Volkswagen etc. He even drove a T-55 tank in Russia. Sometimes, he drove those cars himself; sometimes he took the front passenger seats. Here we brought you a short look at those vehicles, which were non Aston Martins, yet ferried the most famous secret agent time to time.
James Bond’s latest Aston Martin DB10 is making an appearance at the ODEON cinema, Leicester Square, London. This car was specially made for the latest upcoming James Bond flick Spectre which is set to release worldwide in a few days. British luxury auto manufacturer Aston Martin made only 10 of these bespoke coupe sports cars. One of them is now on display at the ODEON cinema, as the pre release promotion of the movie.
This Aston Martin DB10 from SPECTRE was unveiled on Sunday 27th September and it will be at the cinema until Monday 5 October public display. Like any other Bond car of the past this car too is gorgeous and feature packed. It comes powered by a V12 engine, and as we have seen in the trailers of the movie, this car is equipped with a flame thrower, which we have seen Bond using during his chase sequence on the banks of Tiber River in Rome. As we have heard, these 10 bespoke Aston Martin DB10s would go on auction as the specially made Bond cars. Incidentally, James Bond and Aston Martin, the two iconic British institutions shares an association dated back to more than half a century. Even Aston Martin celebrated their association with Bond by launching a special limited edition Aston Martin DB9 GT Bond Edition a few days back. The first Aston Martin car featured in Bond movie was the Aston Martin DB5, which we have seen in the last movie Skyfall too. As per the storytelling, Bond’s beloved Aston Martin DB5 died a brutal death in hand of 007’s enemy. Therefore he needed an all new car, and there comes the new Aston Martin DB10.
British luxury sports car maker Aston Martin officially announced the name of their upcoming sports car at Frankfurt, which will be the replacement of Aston Martin DB9. Aston Martin DB9 has been one of the most popular sports cars of the world in recent times, and the British luxury auto maker is closing the production of that famed car. Recently they launched a limited edition special car which was Aston Martin DB9 GT Bond Edition, which was certainly a tribute to DB9 itself, rather than to the association with James Bond.
The Aston Martin DB11 will be unveiled in 2016, and it is expected to be the manufacturer’s flagship model in upcoming times. Announcing the DB11 name, Aston Martin CEO Dr. Andy Palmer has said, “Today I am proud and pleased to confirm that the DB11 nameplate will sit on our next new car. Not only is it a sign of our intention to continue the long line of iconic sports cars that bear the ‘DB’ moniker – the very bloodline of our brand – but it also shows the world our ambitious plan in action. The coming years will see Aston Martin transform not only its entire range of models but also its scale and global presence, and the new DB11 will be central to that success.”
This car will follow the footsteps of the iconic DB5 and DB9. Although Aston Martin is yet to disclose the details of the car, but we have found some pictures doing round over some websites, this new DB11 sports car comes similar to the DB9, with some restyled features like dual light headlamps, completely different looking front bumpers. This new model will come built on an updated version of the VH platform and it may sport a 6.0 liter V12 engine. The car also expected to offer a twin turbo 4.0 liter V8 engine, which is sourced from Mercedes AMG.
