Hold on to your hats. It appears the newest member of the Aston Martin family, due to release at this year’s Geneva Motor Show, is a powerhouse 5.2-liter twin turbocharged V12 beast. The 2017 DB11, incorporating similar styling from the DB10 from the James Bond Spectre flick, continues to signal a new era Aston Martin. Leaving behind the signature design that characterized previous models for so long, the DB11 hosts sharper details on the brand’s signature grill and a fastback rear.
What is known for sure is the luxury vehicle’s V12 engine will pump out 600 horses and may be offered in both an eight-speed automatic and a six-speed manual drivetrain. This setup is good for a 0-62 mph of just 3.9 seconds, and a top speed of 200 mph. It is also noteworthy to mention that this model is one of the first cars to benefit from he Mercedes-AMG partnership. Evidence suggests the DB11’s instrument panels and electrical dials were lifted straight from the Mercedes S-Class Coupe. Is this a harbinger of things to come for the British-based car manufacturer? We’ll have to wait and see. The vehicle is slated to hit dealers with a price tag of $212,000.
