Aston Martin DB11 makes dynamic appearance at Goodwood.

Aston Martin DB11: Driven by Andy Palmer at Goodwood.

LONDON: The new Aston Martin DB11 was seen running for the first time anywhere in the world at this year's Goodwood Festival of Speed (June 23-26). First unveiled at this year's Geneva Motor Show, the 600bhp, 5.2-liter twin-turbo V12 GT car was on display in the Michelin Supercar Paddock during the Festival weekend and was driven up Goodwood's famous 1.16-mile hillclimb by Aston Martin CEO, Andy Palmer. The legendary British sports car manufacturer also gave its 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 global unveiling at the Festival of Speed, Aston Martin's track-only supercar, the Vulcan, was back to tackle the hillclimb, with Aston Martin Racing works driver and Vulcan development driver, Darren Turner, at the wheel.
