Aston Martin has started production of the new DB11 for UK customers, with the first road-ready version coming off the production line today.
The new DB11 is the first in a line of seven new models to be launched over the next seven years, in line with the company’s ‘Second Century Plan’, which takes the 103-year-old company into its next century of operation.
The DB11 was originally launched at the Geneva motor show back in March. To date, over 3,000 orders for have been received and they will all be hand-built at the company’s sports car production plant and headquarters, in Gaydon, Warwickshire.
Earlier this year, Aston Martin also announced the company’s second UK manufacturing facility will open in St Athan in Wales where the new crossover will be built.
Aston Martin boss, Dr Andy Palmer, said: “It’s an exciting moment for the entire company when the first car of a new model goes into production. The DB11 is a special car and it heralds the start of a new and exciting era for Aston Martin.”
First deliveries to customers will take place during October.
