The Aston Martin DB11 will be seen running for the first time at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed (23-26 June). The 600bhp, 5.2-litre twin-turbo V12 GT car will be on display in the Michelin Supercar Paddock during the Festival weekend and will be driven up Goodwood’s famous 1.16-mile hillclimb by Aston Martin CEO, Andy Palmer.
Aston Martin will also give the Vantage GT8 – the lightest and most powerful V8-powered Vantage ever built – its first UK public runs at Goodwood, driven in Saturday’s timed run category by Aston Martin Racing works driver, Darren Turner. One year on from its unveiling at the Festival, Aston Martin’s track-only supercar, the Vulcan, will be back to tackle the hillclimb with Turner at the wheel again.
The £155,000 DB11 – the first product launched under the company’s ‘Second Century’ plan – can be seen as a static display on Goodwood’s Press & Preview Day (Thursday, 23 June) as part of the Moving Motor Show. Alongside it will be Aston’s Rapide S model, which will also be available for visitors to experience. The mouth-watering chance to drive an Aston Martin as part of the Moving Motor Show also extends to the V12 Vantage S Coupe and the Vanquish Volante.
