A new member of the iconic British luxury sports car brand, Aston Martin, is in town. The Aston Martin DB11 V8 was recently unveiled by Aston Martin Kuala Lumpur. The DB11 V8 is the 4.0L twin turbo version that will partner the existing 5.2L twin turbo V12 in the line-up, and continue to showcase the model’s sporting character and appeal, with improved efficiency.
The 4.0L V8 comes courtesy of Mercedes-AMG, which supplies the British brand with electrical systems and engines. The V8 engine puts out 530 bhp and 675 Nm via an 8-speed automatic gearbox to the rear wheels and carries the DB11 V8 from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.0 seconds, just fractionally slower than its V12 sibling. This is largely due to the weight savings afforded by the smaller V8 engine layout (approximately 115 kg lighter).
Physically, the DB11 V8 retains its beautiful and distinctive styling, from the characteristic front grille, to the clamshell bonnet, to the aerodynamic Aeroblade channel, as well as the wing mirror arms that act like, well… wings.
Inside, the DB11 V8 has a 12″ colour LCD instrument display as well as an 8″ screen accessible with the Mercedes-Benz-sourced COMAND infotainment system.
“We are thrilled to officially unveil the V8-powered DB11 in Kuala Lumpur. We expect sustained interest and continuing growth in demand for DB11, spearheaded by the arrival of the V8-powered model.” said Ms. Nancy Chen, Head of Sales Operations for Aston Martin, Southeast Asia.
The Aston Martin DB11 V8 is estimated to be priced from RM1,800,000 after duties and GST. It is available for viewing in the showroom located in Etiqa Twins, Jalan Pinang, Kuala Lumpur. Please call +603 2163 1196 to arrange a viewing appointment.
