Summary


The Aston Martin DB11 was a high-performance grand tourer available as both a coupé and convertible (Volante). Part of a long line of DB models, it was replaced by the DB12 coupé in 2023.

The DB11 was available with a V12 or V8 petrol engine, with the V12 coupé also available as a higher-performance model called the DB11 AMR. All models are built in Gaydon, Warwickshire.

The Aston Martin DB11 received unanimously positive scores from the UK motoring media, with particular praise for its blend of performance and comfort.

As of January 2024, the Aston Martin DB11 holds a Used Car Expert Rating of D, with a score of 56%. Although it’s a lovely car to drive and earned strong media reviews, its score is weighed down by its high CO2 emissions and running costs.

We only have limited data to hand on the Aston Martin DB11, but – based on every other Aston Martin model – we can assume that fuel consumption will be very poor and servicing costs will be very high.

None of these issues are likely to put off any potential customers, of course.
