At this week’s launch of the new Aston Martin DB11 V8, the British luxury sports manufacturer told CarAdvice some of the changes made between it and the V12 version, were a direct result of customer feedback.

Owners told the company that there could be more separation between the three suspension settings – GT, Sport and Sport +, which Aston says has been dialled in on the V8...

Aston Martin DB11 gets twin-turbo V8 option, Australian pricing confirmed

The 2017 Aston Martin DB11 may only have just been released, but the British marque has already added a second engine choice - a 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8.
