This is ours
More subdued, right? I didn’t get to spec the car myself, but when you see the absolute crimes I could have committed against the DB11, perhaps that’s just as well. That’s Spectral Blue Caithness leather (£1,495) with £495 Celestial perforations in the seats, the £4,495 interior black pack, £395 apiece for contrast stitching and Flint seatbelts and £295 for the embossed headrests. There’s more, but It’d be boring to detail.
As far as tech goes, the DB11 isn’t really that sort of car – so I’ve got no lane departure or radar cruise, no dash cam or autopilot and as far as I can work out from the configurator, you can’t have them, either. Given this is a GT, I find that a bit surprising. I expect they’ll be along shortly, once Aston has figured out how to make Merc’s tech work alongside its own.
It is well equipped though – cameras all around, and this has the £5,495 Bang & Olufsen sound system. It is, it must be said, a lovely, lovely car to spend time in. The seats are beautifully shaped, the feel of the leather is sublime – in fact there’s only one thing I really, really don’t get on with…
