Aston Martin have produced countless motoring icons, but it’s the all important DB9 that brought the brand into the 21st Century. The famous grand tourer first debuted in Geneva in 2003, and will finish production in 2016 to make way for its successor. The new Aston Martin DB11 will sport an entirely new chassis architecture, along with an Aston Martin-developed 5.2 litre twin-turbo V12.
Last week Aston published a preview clip of the new engine, which you can view (and hear) below.
In the meantime here’s a handful of DB11 shots published on Top Gear earlier today. According to reports, this test vehicle (on British plates) is registered with a 5200cc engine at the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA). It has not yet been confirmed whether this is the new power plant previewed above, however it wouldn’t be out of the question to assume so.
We’ll most likely see the DB11 preview at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show.
