DB9 replacement with stunning looks, turbocharged V-12

Aston Martin has been relying on its VH (Vertical/Horizontal) platform since 2001, using it in all of its vehicles except the Aston Martin One-77 and the 2011 Toyota iQ- based Cygnet city car. That came to an end in 2016, when the Brits introduced their new, lighter architecture that includes parts engineered by Mercedes’ high-performance AMG division. The new platform will also see Aston Martin vehicles receive the biturbo, 4.0-liter V-8 launched in the Mercedes-AMG GT, which will be supplied to Gaydon-based on a partnership with Daimler. The first Aston Martin product to benefit from these new features was unveiled at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. It goes by the name DB11 and replaces the iconic DB9.

Sent into showrooms for the 2017 model year, the DB11 introduced Aston Martin’s new styling language and a host of new technologies. Previewed by the DB10 James Bond movie car, the new design brought a sportier and more compact appearance to Aston Martin’s grand tourer, while still relying on the classic features that made this brand famous in the 1960s. Along with the new design, the DB11 also debuted Gaydon’s brand-new V-12 powerplant, which now makes use of turbocharging for enhanced output, improved fuel economy, and reduced emissions. Aston’s first all-new, mass-produced vehicle in more than a decade, the DB11 marked the beginning of a new era for Britain’s famed GT manufacturer.
