FRANKFURT/PARIS – December 16, 2016 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Aston Martin is celebrating a victory in the reader’s choice award of the renowned French motoring magazine L’argus. The readers’ survey was established in 1994. In this year’s edition 20 models competed in the sports car category with more than 5,000 votes cast. The new Aston Martin DB11 won the L’argus Award against strong competition.
The first product launched under the company’s ‘Second Century’ plan, DB11 showcases a fresh and distinctive design language, pioneering aerodynamics and is powered by a potent new in-house designed 5.2-litre twin-turbocharged V12 engine. Heralding a new design era for Aston Martin, DB11 is the latest landmark in a remarkable aesthetic journey; one that gave Aston Martin icons such as the DB2/4, DB5 and, most recently, the DB10 developed specifically for James Bond. DB11 re-imagines the relationship between form and function with a series of fresh design signatures.
Mark Kenworthy, Regional Director European Operations of Aston Martin Lagonda of Europe, says: “The Aston Martin DB11 is the bold new figurehead of the illustrious ‘DB’ bloodline and an authentic, dynamic sporting GT in the finest Aston Martin tradition. Winning this prestigious award underlines the outstanding achievement of our design and engineering teams. We are delighted that the DB11 was awarded this prize by the readers of one the most important automotive magazines in France. We thank the readers of L’argus for their votes.”
