You would expect the DB9 replacement to bear the DB10 name but that won’t be the case as that moniker has been reserved for the custom car featured in the upcoming installment of the James Bond long-running movie franchise. Another reason why Aston Martin has decided to just skip DB10 altogether is to show the new model will be vastly different than its predecessor, not just a subtle evolution.

Details about the model in question are scarce at the moment, but it is believed Aston Martin’s engineers have reworked the VH platform and will offer the DB11 supercar with a V8 twin-turbo 4.0-liter engine borrowed from AMG. In addition, the plan is to turbocharge the company’s well-known 6.0-liter V12 and word on the street says it will actually employ a twin-turbo setup so the power figures should be staggering while fuel efficiency should greatly improve.

The prototypes spotted in the attached spy footage were camouflaged but nevertheless it’s still easy to notice the design won’t change that much compared to the outgoing DB9. However, expect the DB11 to look significantly sharper while on the inside it could borrow a few bits and pieces from Mercedes-AMG, including a digital instrument cluster.

Aside from infusing more power in their new DB model, the experts at Aston Martin are expected to put the car through an extensive diet so it should lose some serious weight. More power combined with less weight always equals better performances, especially since the model will benefit from AMG’s expertise.

The Aston Martin DB11 is programmed to go on sale towards the end of next year or early 2017, but before that we will like see a concept previewing the production car. Expect the concept to show up at a major auto show, possibly in Geneva set for March 2016.
