We have some photos, courtesy of Carscoops, of what could be the Aston Martin DB11! The new Aston Martin will be the replacement of the aging DB9 which has been around since 2004. These images were supposedly “leaked” just days before the reveal in the 2016 Geneva International Motor Show, and everything about the pictures say this is the real deal.
There’s not much more details about the car except that Aston Martin has confirmed it will use a 5.2 liter twin-turbo’d V12. The engine has been teased before in the video below and it just sounds TERRIFYING.
If you think you’ve seen this car before, you may not be alone. The latest James Bond film “Spectre” showcased a fictional Aston Martin DB10, which was sold recently at auction for a fictitiously high price of $3.5 million. This DB11 possess similar proportions in its profile and various features to the DB10. Both have subdued headlights compared to its predecessors, both have distinctly prominent brake venting just aft of the front axle, both cars have a relatively high belt line and low roofline, and finally the two cars have similarly subdued taillights, finishing off a quiet-but-deadly look.
If the DB10 was a concept car, the DB11 is a nicely buttoned up production version. The look is unmistakably Aston Martin: Handsome. Combine the charming looks with a 5.0 liter twin turbocharged V12 under the hood, this thing will be a killer, too, just like James Bond.
