This past weekend marked the beginning of a new endeavor for me. There was no better way to commemorate my new beginning than with Aston Martin's new beginning: the DB11.
In the past, Aston Martin was known for only doing one thing well: building a gorgeous car. Everything else was flawed. From the previous generations Volvo screens and infotainment, to the Ford derived technology, Aston Martin seemed to have lost its way for the most part. Finally, they decide to collaborate and learn some things from Mercedes-AMG and build a car worthy of a century of heritage. Granted, this isn't the highest performing nor the most expensive in its segment. However, it has a charm that few cars are able to achieve. And this time, the charm isn't the only positive in an Aston Martin.
This particular car is finished in Lightning Silver with a Obsidian Black/Spice Red interior. Needless to say, it is stunning. I've been blessed with the opportunity to drive many cars, from Bentleys and Rolls-Royces to Ferraris and Lamborghinis. I must say, I have NEVER been stared at more in my life than in this Aston Martin. Oddly enough, it was never an envious stare. I never got the "oh, who's this snob in their fancy car" vibe. The look on people's faces was mostly one of awe and admiration. People were viewing this car for what it really was: rolling art.
We decided to take the AM DB11 to Miami and shoot a few pics (HUGE thanks to Adam for the pictures).
More endeavors coming soon.
