- Comments Off on The New Aston Martin DB11 with A V8 Engine
After a very long time, Aston Martin replaced the aging DB9 model with the DB11. The new DB11 is a new chapter for Aston Martin. DB11 is a result of the collaboration of Aston Martin and Mercedes-AMG. Mercedes-Benz has had an interest in Aston Martin for more than a decade. As the BMW and VW own British brands, Mercedes-Benz was the only German car manufacturer that didn’t such a brand. Consequently, Aston Martin is the perfect recipe.
We can see Mercedes-AMG touches in the new DB11. A few weeks ago, Aston Martin announced the V8 engine that powered the DB11. This V8 is transferred directly from the Mercedes-AMG to the Aston Martin. With the DB11, the era of Mercedes-Benz has started. In addition to the V8 engine, the new DB11 is equipped with the Mercedes-Benz telematic system, infotainment systems and interior touches. The climate control buttons, and the touch pad for the infotainment system are some of the minor touches.
The DB11 with its V8 engine offers a state-of-art engine that combines efficiency and technology. The Mercedes-AMG engine inherits the Formula 1 technology and passes it directly to the road cars. Thus, Aston Martin’s lightweight design and adaptive chassis are going to unleash the true power of the Mercedes-AMG engine.
Overall, the Aston Martin DB11 is a new era for Aston Martin in conjunction with Mercedes-Benz. Even though the engines will have Mercedes-Benz touches, the Aston Martin’s know-how in terms of the aluminium platform and the lightweight design approach are going to reveal more competitive vehicles in future. In addition, the Mercedes-Benz driving assistance and the crash prevention safety systems can easily be embedded into Aston Martin’s vehicles to boost the competitive power of the Aston Martin.
