The Aston Martin DB11 has been spotted undergoing trials at the Nurburgring track in Germany. The replacement for DB9 is still in its development stages and is scheduled to go into production in the next two years as a 2017 model.
While most of the finer details are obscured by the heavy camouflage, it seems like the DB11 will mimic the elongated lines of the current DB9. The car gets get a gaping front fascia, giving us a peek at the intercooler. Inside, the car seems to be equipped with a fully digital dashboard, which seems to be the latest trend among premium car manufacturers.
All of Aston Martin's current models, right from the ‘entry-level’ Vantage V8 to the super exclusive Lagonda luxury car are underpinned by the VH (Vertical Horizontal) platform. This platform was first announced over 14 years ago, in 2001, when the British manufacturer was under the ownership of Ford. The new DB11 however, will be based on a completely new versatile platform, and will be available with both naturally aspirated and twin-turbocharged engines.
