The Aston Martin DB11 arrived for the 2017 model to exchange the ageing DB9. Fast-forward to today, and therefore the British marquee has announced a replacement limited-edition package for the sports car called the Shadow Edition. It’s available now to order worldwide, but Aston is limiting production to only 300 examples, so act fast if you would like one. Those trying to find both styling and power upgrades should look elsewhere, though. This package adds darkened visual enhancements only, leaving the V8 untouched.
Those upgrades include gloss black bonnet blades, 20-inch gloss black directional alloy wheels, unique black Shadow Edition sill plaques, and polished chrome wings and script badges. Inside, there is a sports wheel wrapped in pure black Alcantara and obsidian black leather. An optional package includes gloss black features on the supper greenhouse, replacing the body-colour panels with black ones.
“We have carefully selected the Shadow Edition design elements to subtly yet noticeably alter the DB11’s appearance – moving it further towards a more assertive and purposeful GT style,” said Marek Reichman, executive vice-chairman and Chief Creative Officer, Aston Martin Lagonda.
The package is out there on either the Aston Martin DB11 Coupe or the convertible DB11 V8 Volante. While many of the Aston Martin DB11 Shadow Edition’s darkened features are fixed, there’ll still be the chance for a buyer to customize the model, including six exterior colours and different available colours for the brake callipers.
Powering the DB11 V8 Shadow Edition is Aston’s twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8. It produces 503 horsepower (375 kilowatts) and 513 pound-feet (696Newton-meters) of torque. It pairs with Aston’s mid-mounted, eight-speed automatic gearbox.
The Aston Martin DB11 Shadow Edition is out there now to order from dealers. it’s a starting price of $222,600 within the U.S. Aston doesn’t say when customers should expect to receive their Shadow Edition DB11s.
