The driving position is spot on and the interior, from top to bottom, is finished in lavish materials. There’s lots of room in the front and a pair of seats best suited for children or extra storage in the rear. Speaking of which, the boot will comfortably accommodate a couple of overnight bags – perfect for that weekend road trip to the south of France. 

Buying a brand-new DB11 brings lots of customisation options, which means you’ll find a variety of specifications on the used market. If that sounds expensive, then you’d be right. The starting price is around £83,000 for early V12s and V8s, and you’ll need upwards of £110,000 for the AMR version. 

To put it in context, though, some rivals such as the latest Bentley Continental GT begin at around £120,000 or more. So in some ways it’s a steal (for the type of vehicle) – and it’s a considerably less than buying a new one, which will be upwards of £150,000 even in its entry-level form. For the money, you’re getting a very competent GT car with lots of class, luxury and driver appeal. And, of course, an important little slice of Aston history.

Our top spec

You won’t have to choose a trim level, but that’s no bad thing given the high standard of kit. However, you do have a choice of bodystyles: a coupé or the convertible Volante, which was launched in 2018. But if you want the open-air DB11, you can’t have a V12: it’s V8 only.
