New information regarding the forthcoming Aston Martin DB11, the successor to the DB9, has been released.
A 5.2-litre V12 engine will be housed under a long bonnet which, with the cab placed further back, provides the DB11 with its distinctive profile. The engine is likely to be the most powerful V12 yet, delivering in excess of 600bhp. It is also thought that a smaller 4.0-litre V8 engine will be available for the DB11, in a bid to expand its appeal among prospective buyers.
Cosmetic features include elongated headlights that appear to start at the tip of the car and run parallel to much of the bonnet. Augmented rear wheel arches are another bold feature. The car’s aerodynamic performance should benefit from the addition of a protruding front spoiler and what looks like a pop-up rear spoiler.
The DB11 is set to be constructed at the marque’s engine plant at Ford in Cologne and is due for release this autumn at the earliest.
In case you are wondering what happened to the DB10; this was produced especially for 2015’s James Bond movie, Spectre. However, the DB11 does share many attributes with that model, most noticeably its silhouette and boot lid.
