Geneva Motor Show just a day away and Aston Martin DB11’s images that appeared on the web ahead of this Motor Show, we think these images are the real deal, matching what we’ve seen up until now. The car is heavily inspired by the DBX crossover, the DB10 from the James Bond flick ‘Spectre’ and even the CC110 centenary special, the front fascia gets more sharper details with the brand’s signature grille, looking at the rear, it gets a fastback rear.
With this new design language by the Aston Martin is a hint of DB11 to enter into the new era, ditching the repetitive design that was usually found in every model over the last decade. It is also the company’s first car that to benefit from the Mercedes-AMG partnership. The rear end gives a glimpse of the One-77 hypercar, especially when you look at the rear window, quarter window, and haunches.
The images of the interiors are not out yet, but the prototype of the car was installed with a same digital instrument panel and electronic dials that are incorporated in the Mercedes-Benz’s S-Class Coupe, that means the electrical architecture will be taken from the German luxury marque’s top model. It will not be based on the AMG platform and will continue to be built on an evolved version of Aston's VH aluminium architecture.
Interesting part is under the hood, the Aston Martin DB11 will be powered by a new 5.2-litre twin-turbocharged V12 engine capable of producing around 600 HP, possibly to be offered in both an eight-speed automatic and a six-speed manual transmission, while in the later life cycle AMG will provide the former’s 4.0-litre turbo V8 as well.
Stay tuned to get more updated from Geneva Auto Show.
