It's the James Bond car. That's the reason why many people buy an Aston Martin. With the all new 2017 Aston Martin DB11, it's one of the most aerodynamically clever supercars on sale today.

The 2017 Aston Martin DB11 is a grand touring coupe that succeeds  Aston's DB9, a car that stopped a 12-year production run a year ago. The car may not look much different, much underneath the car is a new aluminum body and structure. Bigger strides are apparent inside the car, and underhood is equipped with an all-new turbocharged 12-cylinder engine that produces 600 horsepower.

The automaker dubbed the car as "2+2," which simply means that it's a 4 seater car. But these are very small rear seats. The seats come with a fine leather, decorative stitching, and surrounded by a cabin swollen with a lot of luxury comforts. It also comes with a well-equipped trim level giving a handful of &grave: la carte options.

Other features include a soft leather seating, and advanced tech come standard, and extensive options list allows customers to tailor the supercar on their own personal tastes. The heart of this beast is powered by a turbocharged 5.2-liter V12 engine which is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission that powers the rear wheels. It can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 3.9 seconds and a top speed of 322km/h.

In addition, standard features will include a20-inch wheels, an adaptive suspension, power-adjustable heated front seats, LED headlights and taillights, keyless ignition and entry, leather upholstery, dual-zone automatic climate control, a faux suede headliner, a 360-degree parking/reverse camera view, and front and rear parking sensor. The 2017 Aston Martin DB11 is considered the first car in its generation that has a genuine all-round substance. It may be not the fastest or sharpest driving supercar, or the most technically advance or the most accessible, but only very few cars feel as special from behind the wheel as the DB11. Today, it has a starting price of $350,000.
