Did The Aston Martin DB11 Just Become The Best Grand Tourer On The Market?

2016 Geneva Motor Show

Killer good looks and a top speed of 200 mph. We're sold.

Alongside the Bugatti Chiron, which also made its debut at the Geneva Motor Show, the Aston Martin DB11 was one of the industry's worst kept secrets. Even before we saw the leaked images and the development car spy shots, we all knew it was coming, and we all had a pretty good idea of what it was going to look like. It's perhaps a testament to the talent of Aston Martin's designers, engineers and craftspeople that the DB11 is still able to make our jaws drop when we already know pretty much everything about it.

A good reason why we'll probably stop and stare at every Aston Martin DB11 we ever see is that it's so damn gorgeous. We could go on for ages about the new 5.2-liter twin-turbocharged V12 with 600 hp, or how the DB11 is one of only a handful of Aston Martin road cars ever built to hit 200 mph (0-62 mph happens in 3.9 seconds), or even how the only interior trim piece in the beautifully appointed cabin that gives away its Mercedes ties is the tablet-esque center console display. Instead, just look at it. Drink in those sublime details. Ogle the shoulder line as it flows towards the rear light cluster. Wonder how the designers at Aston Martin were able to create such an imposing shape whilst using only a handful of sharp bodywork creases.

We apologize if that sounds all artsy fartsy, but we can't help ourselves. Everyone's entitled to their opinions, and we're not going to say those who think the DB11 is an ugly POS don't have valid viewpoints. But, if we had to pick one car being revealed at this year's Geneva Motor Show to showcase in a modern art museum's automotive exhibition, it's more than likely we'd go for the Aston Martin. Fingers crossed it's as beautiful to drive as it is to look at. The DB11 hits dealer showrooms this in the US this autumn and will cost $211,995.
