If you missed the back-to-back new episodes of Jay Leno’s Garage, they were the best primetime episodes yet. He took us to Willow Springs Raceway with Aston-Martin’s new DB11 supercar. To showcase the capabilities of their latest coupe, he was chased by none other than Ben Collins (the original Stig from Top Gear). We never thought they would add twin turbos to their legendary V12, but the combination is outrageous. DB11 offers 600 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Power of this magnitude is approaching the limit of what rear wheel drive is able to put to the ground, so the suspension and chassis are all new.
To put those numbers into perspective, The Stig was given a 2017 V12 Vantage S to see which car was faster on the track. Obviously, the Vantage is no slouch, so until we get our hands on a DB11 check out the listings from our dealers below. Stay with us for more updates from Jay Leno’s Garage.
