The Car With The Golden Steering Wheel

Written by Molly

The Aston Martin DB11 has been voted “Most Beautiful Car 2017”, winning the prestigious and much coveted Golden Steering Wheel award from Axel Springer. An esteemed jury of designers, engineers, racers, celebrities and journalists from across Europe selected the DB11 from a choice of 20 cars that came to market in 2017.

The DB11 showcases a fresh and distinctive design language, pioneering aerodynamics and is powered by a potent in-house designed 5.2-litre twin-turbocharged V12 engine. Built upon a new lighter, stronger, and more space efficient bonded aluminium structure, DB11 is the most powerful, most efficient and most dynamically gifted DB model in Aston Martin’s history. As such, it is the most significant new Aston Martin since the introduction of the DB9 in 2003.

As a true 21st century Aston Martin the DB11 combines the very latest technology developed in conjunction with technical partner, Daimler AG, with the finest quality and hand craftsmanship. Using a full-colour 12” TFT LCD display, the all-new instrument cluster presents primary vehicle information with absolute clarity, while a second, centrally-mounted 8” TFT screen is dedicated to infotainment. Controlled via an intuitive rotary control, with an optional touchpad offering character recognition, multi-touch and gesture support, the new satellite navigation and audio system have never been more effective, sounded better or been easier to operate. A newly implemented auto-park assist feature and 360-degree birds-eye view camera helps provide safe maneuvering at slow speeds and is also operated via the car’s infotainment system.
