Aston Martin has finally revealed the new DB11. Making its debut at the Geneva Motor Show, the DB9 replacement is the most powerful model in the DB line, packing a biturbo 5.2-liter V12 engine good for 600 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque. Power is channeled to the rear axle through an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission, with a mechanical limited-slip differential featuring active torque vectoring. The bonded aluminum platform of the car makes it lighter and stronger, helping it to achieve 0-60 in less than 4 seconds and a top speed of 200 mph. It's longer, wider and lower than its DB9 predecessor, and rides on 20-inch ten-spoke wheels with a diamond turned finish, wrapped in bespoke Bridgestone tires. The DB11 will be available this fall, with a $211,995 price tag in the US.
