When it comes to engines, there really isn’t anything more opulent than a V-12. The Aston Martin DB11 adds twin-turbos to its two inline six cylinders mated at the crank, making this wide-body luxury grand tourer something that pulls hard from idle to redline. It’s hard to believe the DB11 is in the middle of the Aston Martin lineup. With lavish accoutrements and more power than the average driver would even need, the DB11 is looking for an open road to let that V12 breathe, while offering the ultimate in comfort and amenities.
— Official description [1]

The 2017 Aston Martin DB11, abbreviated as Aston DB11 '17 or AM DB11, is a grand tourer by Aston Martin that debuted in the Playseat Car Pack for Forza Horizon 3 and as standard in all subsequent Forza titles.

Synopsis

Built on an all-new aluminum platform replacing the VH platform that was last seen in the Aston Martin Vanquish, the DB11 is the successor to the DB9. It is also the first series-production Aston Martin with a turbocharged engine. In the summer of 2017, the V12-engined DB11 was joined by a V8-engined coupe model codeveloped by Mercedes-AMG. In the autumn of 2017, Aston Martin announced the DB11 Volante, the DB11's convertible counterpart.

Designed by Marek Reichman, Aston Martin's Chief Creative Officer and Head of Design, the DB11 continues the tradition of 1:3 proportions in design and includes several new design features, which include new roof strakes that separate the body from the roof, available in either black or the car's body color, and "Aeroblade" air intakes in the front strakes. These side strakes are now functional and channel turbulent air down the car's side and into intake ducts by the C-pillars, subsequently forcing out the air at the rear vertically as a "virtual" rear wing, providing downforce.

The DB11's engine is an all-new 5.2 L (5,204 cc) twin-turbocharged V12 engine, making it the first series-production Aston Martin with a turbocharged engine. The engine produces 600 hp (447 kW) and 516 ft·lb (700 N·m), although the DB11 features an incorrect power figure in each of its Forza series appearance, with 608 hp (453 kW); this figure is actually a result of a misconversion of its real power rating of 600 hp (447 kW) to metric horsepower (PS) from brake horsepower (bhp), and then simply changing the unit back to brake horsepower (bhp).[2]

The DB11's transmission is a rear-mounted eight-speed ZF automatic gearbox delivering power to the rear wheels. With a curb weight of 4134 lb (1875 kg), the DB11 has a power-to-weight ratio of 320 hp (239 kW) per tonne.

Aston Martin claims that the DB11 can accelerate to 60 mph (97 km/h) in 3.7 seconds, 100 mph (161 km/h) in 7.9 seconds, and reach 200 mph (322 km/h), which the Forza Motorsport 7 rendition of the car can reach.

Performance

The DB11 offers a relatively higher grip compared to older Aston Martin models, and has a good deal of torque and acceleration. Unfortunately, with probably the poorly spaced gearbox to partially blame, it doesn't have a great top speed and greatly struggles to build up speed past around 180 mph (290 km/h), which, while not bad per se, is quite a step backwards compared to previous models, even though the real-life DB11 can do 200 mph (322 km/h). It is also much heavier than most modern Aston Martin models, which makes the handling visibly more sluggish in certain turns.
