Aston Martin DB11, the keenly-awaited successor to the DB9, has been leaked ahead of its official premiere at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show on March 1. It is being learnt that the leaked image, which clearly shows the supercar's front fascia, might have come out of a private event. Having said that, it is now believed that the ultra-luxury British automaker might just officially reveal the DB11 digitally ahead of the Geneva debut.
Going by the leaked image, Aston Martin DB11 draws its designing cues from the DB10 which was exclusive for the James Bond Starrer SPECTRE. Also, it doesn't reflect substantial styling upgrades as compared to the outgoing DB9. Though, the front grille is more broader, while the headlamps get an all-new design. The side mirrors flaunt a more sleeker profile, while the traditional door handles are also not visible in the image. The rear end can't be clearly seen, but it seems to carry a tiny trunk lid spoiler.
The interior images are not yet available, but it is speculated that the DB11 would share several components with Mercedes-Benz sedans. One can certainly expect the Aston Martin DB11 to come with a plethora of high-end luxury equipments, including an all-digital instrument cluster and a large touch-screen infotainment system. Surprisingly, the biggest upgrade that the DB9 successor would get is a new powerplant. Sources have maintained that the DB11 would be powered by a new 5.2L, V12 biturbo motor which would generate power in excess of 600bhp. While we still await the official word, stay tuned for more updates on the same.
