Aston Martin DB11: Exterior Design
With an incredibly iconic lineage, the 2016 Aston Martin DB11 is the standard by which all future sports cars will be compared. To honor the DB legacy, the form of the Aston Martin DB11 developed organically from head to tail, mixing classic proportions with evolved versions of the vehicle’s familiar elements. The iconic radiator grille has been redesigned and amplified to increase both aerodynamics and aesthetics.
Derived directly from their racecars, the Curlicue system that comes with the DB11 is a gill-like vent that has been incorporated into each front wheel arch lining to reduce aerodynamic lift at the front end. Concealed underneath the clamshell bonnet, the design of the Curlicue system vents high-pressure air through recessed apertures, further enhancing performance.
The innovative Aston Martin Aeroblade™ enhances rear stability by harnessing airflow along the flanks of the vehicle. Acting like a conventional spoiler, the jet of air produced by the intakes positioned in the base of the C-pillars reduce aerodynamic lift and eliminate the need for an upswept flip in the tail. When additional stability is required, a small active rear spoiler automatically deploys and then retracts when it’s no longer needed.
Exterior features include:
- LED head and tail-lights
- Dramatic roof strike
- New side strakes
- Bonded aluminum body structure
- Clamshell Bonnet
- Wraparound form
