Between 2016 and 2022 Aston Martin has a plan to launch no less than seven new models, all far more differentiated from each other than the cars it currently builds. You know how it is: the Vantage looks a bit like the Vanquish and does a similar thing to the DB9.
Well, all that changes with the DB9’s replacement, the Aston Martin DB11. It sits on a new aluminium chassis, which, from a technical standpoint, has fewer extrusions and more pressings. From a practical standpoint what that actually means is it's more space efficient; the car is a similar size to its predecessors on the outside, but roomier inside. That’s good news, as roominess is something previous Astons have not been renowned for.
Read on over the next few pages to see whether you should be buying a DB11 rather than one of its rivals, such as the Bentley Continental GT.
