Aston Martin DB11

Aston Martin DB11 is a successor to legendary Aston Martin DB9 and replaced the model in 2016. It’s sold with 2 engine options – a 5.2 liter V12 (which is the right choice) and 4.0 liter V8. The V12 however seems to be the right choice – not just because it has more cylinders, higher displacement and more power, but also because the V12 is made by Aston Martin themselves, whereas V8 comes from Mercedes.

But V12 isn’t better in every possible way, the problem is it’s heavier than V8 engine and this can be felt on a race track. For example the V8 version is 1.04 seconds faster on Sachsenring and 0.7 seconds faster on Hockenheim Short race tracks than the V12 model.

This doesn’t mean the less powerful model is faster on every track. It depends on track. Some are grip dominant, others are power dominant.

V12 engine outputs 608 horsepower whereas V8 510 horsepower. You would think that almost 100 horsepower difference surely has effect on acceleration performance between the two versions and you would be right, but the difference isn’t as big as you might expect.

Aston Martin DB11 V12 does 0-100 km/h in 3.9 seconds whereas V8 model is just tiny bit slower – 4.0 seconds.

As you get to higher speeds the power starts to play bigger role. It takes 8.6 seconds for V8 DB11 to accelerate from 100 to 200 km/h, whereas for V12 DB11 it takes 8.2 seconds.

If you take both to the drag strip V12 model will win too. V12 model does quarter mile in 11.7 seconds whereas V8 model in 12 seconds flat.

Aston Martin DB11 is one of the most gorgeous cars ever made making this diecast car model/toy a great gift or buy for any car enthusiast.
