Aston Martin DB9 and the upcoming DB11 are better known as the Bond cars. They were featured in multiple movies including the latest Spectre starring Daniel Craig.
Who wouldn’t wish to own such an exciting car with a reputed brand name attached to it?
However, the company is not going to rest on their laurels. Instead, they are increasing the stakes by making the DB11 more powerful and significant than ever, so as to create a new benchmark in the automobile space. A new teaser video has been released by Aston Martin. It doesn’t reveal much in its short thirty second duration, but shared important technical information. The upcoming supercar will be powered by a 5.2-liter twin turbo V12 engine. The car is scheduled for an official launch at the Geneva Motor Show set to take place in the month of March.
In the teaser video, the external design of the car doesn’t get much love. Instead, it starts directly focused on the engine which reads twin turbo and says V12. That’s more than proof positive to confirm what the DB11 will be powered with. It is already being speculated that it is the most powerful engine ever created by the brand. The engine features newer components, technology and finish in order to achieve great performance milestones.
While the video confirmed the model, it however didn’t speak about on-road performance, at least not yet. Aston Martin is expecting to touch power up to 600 bhp and probably create a car that could go on 0 to 62 miles per hour below 4 seconds. We also came to know that the engineers made sure the new V12 engine sounded identical to its predecessor, so as to not annoy those buyers who just can’t hear enough of its authentic growl.
The existing model, DB9 has been in the market for over 12 years. It is a relatively long period for a single model and a painful wait for fans who wanted to upgrade their car to something modern. An exclusive sneak preview of the engine as well as the car has been slated for the Geneva Motor Show.
There’s also the Detroit show happening at the moment in which Aston Martin might tease us more with the DB11 so as to add hype to the Geneva. If they have done everything right, no one is going to complain about the long wait, right?
