Aston Martin begins production of DB11 grand tourer

Roughly two months after Aston Martin ceased the production of its DB9 grand tourer, the British carmaker has announced that it has begun to produce its successor, the highly-anticipated DB11, with the first units being delivered to customers by October 2016.

"It's an exciting moment for the entire company when the first car of a new model goes into production," said Aston Martin President and Chief Executive Andy Palmer, who will personally inspect the first 1,000 cars to assure the quality of the vehicle. "The DB11 is a special car and it heralds the start of a new and exciting era for Aston Martin."

The Aston Martin DB11 was first revealed at the Geneva Motor Show last March. To date, over 3,000 orders have reportedly been placed for the DB11 which will all be hand-built at the company's sports car production plant and headquarters, in Gaydon, Warwickshire.
