The Aston Martin DB11 summed up in about 3 minutes

Gone is the DB9.
It’s moved on so that Aston Martin can begin its Second Century Plan, and with that comes a brand-new DB-badged car. It’s called the DB11, and it’s a properly exotic grand tourer.
With this new plan comes turbochargers, which the DB11 has two of under its finely honed hood. Those forced induction bits help the 5.2-liter V12 engine do its breathing. That gives us 600 horsepower and over 515 pound-feet of torque, which is routed out through the preferred drive wheels thanks to a ZF-sourced eight-speed gearbox.
It’s not cheap. It’s certainly not perfect. It is, however, rather special, and a good sign of things to come in Aston Martin’s second century.
[Disclaimer: Aston Martin tossed us the key fob to the DB11 and dropped the car off with a full tank of fuel. I then crammed a child seat in the back, which makes this the perfect family car.]

    The paint shine on this car in this colour is just breathtaking. Gorgeous! What are the small “black things with hats” on the dash close to each A pillar? Also, I still think the music is a bit too loud in relation to the spoken word in this video. Maybe I’m just getting old though…

      B&O Hochtöner, i believe. An Aston shouldn’t need any sort of stereo, though. Aren’t we all turning into old grumpy men?
      This might still possibly be my favourite V12

      Yep it’s the part of the Bang & Olufsen sound system.

      Got similar looking “hats” on my 2017 Kia Soul. Must be a new design idiom for speakers.
