James Bond’s favourite supercar marque has recently made the perhaps unsurprising announcement that its new sports car will be called the DB11. This follows the creation of the DB10, the car exclusively built for the James Bond film Spectre that will never be on public sale. The DB10 signalled forthcoming styling changes that move it distinctly away from the now classic DB9, and it will be interesting to see how far these are developed in the DB11.
The new car will be unveiled next year and will sit at the heart of Aston Martin’s range. Furthermore, it will be the first major product of Aston Martin’s Second Century Plan. Launching the car, CEO Andy Palmer 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.”
No technical or design details have been announced, but it looks set to be an exciting future for this dynamic British marque.
