Chris Harris finds the Aston Martin DB11 “Surprisingly Fun”

The DB11 Aeroblade is a unique solution to a problem very few sports car makers face. The easiest way to add downforce was to attach a honking great spoiler at the back. However, that would’ve wreaked havoc with the design. So, the engineers…
