Aston Marin DB11 spied again

Aston Marin DB11 spied again

The successor for Aston Martin’s long-running two-seater grand tourer – the DB9, has been spotted testing in Europe. The heavily camouflaged test mule hints that the new model, which is expected to be christened DB11, is still in its early phases of development and will be unveiled in the second half of next year, as a 2017 model. 

While the current Aston Martin range is underpinned by the decade-old VH (Vertical Horizontal) platform, the new DB11 will be built around a completely new versatile platform, which will be compatible with both naturally aspirated and twin-turbocharged engines.

Aesthetically, the new DB11 will be influenced by the DB10 bespoke two-door coupe, which has been specifically created for the next instalment of James Bond movie series, titled as ‘Spectre’. The front sports a gaping wide grille giving us a glimpse of the car’s massive radiator. 

As the British manufacturer’s deal with Ford for the supply of engines was recently extended up to 2018, we expect Aston Martin to continue using the current V12 powertrain in the new DB11. Besides this, we can also expect to see a 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 sourced from AMG in this new model. It will compete with other grand tourers like the Bentley Continental GT and the Maserati Gran Turismo.
