£147,900 when new
A new Aston Martin DB11? A new version of the DB11, yes. It uses a V8 engine, effectively making it a cheaper, downsized, more environmentally friendly alternative to the full-fat V12. Its engine is four litres in size, which in some markets makes it considerably lighter on tax than the 5.2-litre V12. In the UK, the benefits aren’t as crucial, but its £144,900 price tag is still a chunky £13,000 cheaper than the V12’s. But there’s more to it than money saving: it’s brought a tweak to the DB11’s character, too. Is it one of Aston’s howling V8s?
