2018 Aston Martin DB11 V8 review

2018 Aston Martin DB11 V8 reviewIt’s the next logical step in the relationship between the two manufacturers, which started with the DB11 getting Mercedes electrical architecture. Some won’t like it, but get over that little hurdle and this new entry-level DB11 is very good indeed.

In all honesty, though, we flew to Catalonia, in northern Spain, carrying not only our bags, but also, a fair degree of trepidation that such a move would only serve to undermine the iconic ‘DB’ badge, given its decades-old addiction to V12 power.

Aston Martin does the rest of the modifications in-house, including changing the engine control module and adding its own air intake and exhaust to get the preferred sound. While some manufacturers filter a bit of engine noise and subtly send it into the cabin through the stereo speakers, Aston’s is all what-you-hear-is-what-you-get.

It has done, thanks to its looks and charm, for almost all of its first 100 years. To be fair, Aston Martin’s own stability, welfare and future was usually the victim of its recklessness; only twice between 1913 and 2016 did it actually make any money.
