ASTON MARTIN REVEALS EXHILARATING LINE-UP FOR GOODWOOD FESTIVAL OF SPEED  ◾Aston Martin DB11 to make global dynamic debut

◾Return of Aston Martin Vulcan after 2015 debut at Festival of Speed

◾Aston Martin's Goodwood to be a celebration of all things Vantage

16 June 2016, Gaydon: Aston Martin is set to continue a tradition of thrilling the crowds at the Goodwood Festival of Speed next week. Visitors to the annual must see event which is a glorious celebration of motoring and motorsport, will be treated to the sights and sounds of the best sports cars that the British luxury brand has to offer.

The Festival of Speed plays host to the global dynamic debut of the new Aston Martin DB11. Launched at the Geneva Motor Show in March, the DB11 marks a new chapter in the illustrious 'DB' bloodline. It is the most powerful, efficient and dynamically gifted DB model in Aston Martin's history, teaming exceptional design with the latest technology to create a car that is the most significant new Aston Martin since the introduction of the DB9 in 2003.

ASTON MARTIN REVEALS EXHILARATING LINE-UP FOR GOODWOOD FESTIVAL OF SPEED  

Aston Martin President and CEO, Dr Andy Palmer will be behind the wheel of the DB11 at Goodwood to demonstrate all 608PS of the in-house designed 5.2-litre twin-turbocharged V12 engine. He commented: 'The Goodwood Festival of Speed is one of the best events of the summer season and Lord March's beautiful estate has become a place of pilgrimage for car enthusiasts.

'Being the first person to drive the new DB11 up the famous hill climb at Goodwood is a great honour on behalf of all our employees.'

Making a return to the Festival of Speed is the Aston Martin Vulcan, which made its world debut at Goodwood in 2015. Born out of extensive motorsport experience – and using the brand's acknowledged flair for design and engineering ingenuity – the 820bhp, all-carbon fibre Aston Martin Vulcan delivers truly extreme performance.

Powered by a potent 7.0-litre V12 normally aspirated engine, Aston Martin Vulcan is expected to reach speeds of over 100mph as it roars to the top of Goodwood's famous hill climb. Strictly limited to just 24 models worldwide and now sold out, the Festival of Speed is a great opportunity to showcase the skills of the special projects division responsible for the brand's most intense and exhilarating creation to date.

    Aston Martin Racing works' driver and high performance development driver Darren Turner said: 'Last year the car was only three days old when we arrived at Goodwood and we hadn't even done a circuit test. Since then we've completed 15,000kms of testing and the car is now an incredible machine to drive. Despite being straight out of the box last year its performance over the weekend was fantastic. I'm looking forward to going back up the hill in the Aston Martin Vulcan and this time really being able to push.'

    The Festival of Speed will also be a celebration of all things Vantage for Aston Martin. The race-bred Aston Martin Vantage GT8 will take part in the Supercar Shootout up the Goodwood hill on Saturday in the capable hands of Aston Martin Racing Works driver Darren Turner. The car is equally at home on the road or on the track so it is expected to feature strongly.

    Inspired and influenced by the 2016 Aston Martin V8 Vantage GTE race car, the Vantage GT8 is a true thoroughbred. The lightest and most powerful V8 Vantage ever, the Vantage GT8's dramatically sculpted carbon fibre bodywork has been shaped by race-bred aerodynamic function. With a super-sharp chassis tuned for track-focused agility, powered by a revised 446PS version of Aston Martin's rousing 4.7-litre V8, the Vantage GT8 has unmistakable style, a no-nonsense stance and a driving experience that's second to none.

    The Aston Martin V12 Vantage S is the marque's offering to the purists and it will be demonstrating its exceptional agility at the Festival of Speed. Offered with a 7-speed manual transmission, featuring a 'dog-leg' first gear, the Vantage S epitomises Aston Martin's commitment to building exceptional sports cars.

    Aside from the high speed dynamic attractions at the 23rd Festival of Speed, Aston Martin will also have a strong presence at the event's Moving Motor Show.

    Staged every summer since 1993, the Goodwood Festival of Speed is the world's largest automotive garden party, set against the spectacular backdrop of Goodwood House in West Sussex.
