The Aston Martin DB11 was spied earlier when images of its front fascia surfaced online. Now, official images of the DB11 have hit the web just hours before its debut, scheduled to take place at the Geneva Motor Show which begins tomorrow. The DB11 is the direct successor to the DB9 as the DB10 was specifically built for the James Bond film, The Spectre.
The front fascia of the DB11, which was spied earlier through an image, featured the company’s trademark catfish faced grille, crisper lines on the bonnet, edgier corner on the headlamps and LED strips. The company’s idea of upward opening doors has been carried on to the DB11. The exterior features some styling cues that have been incorporated from the DBX concept as we mentioned earlier apart from the DB10 too.
The sloping roofline that seems to have been inspired from the shark nosed DB10 descends to the tailgate and extends further to what seems to be a spoiler recess. The tail lamps seem be similar to the Aston Martin Vanquish but it further extends inside, towards the boot. Further below is one exhaust pipe on each side that comes in a metallic finish.
Powering the new Aston Martin DB11 will be a freshly developed 5.2-litre, twin-turbocharged V12 engine that would produce a power output of over 600 hp. This engine, in fact, will replace the DB9’s 6.0 litre, naturally aspirated V12 engine. The British manufacturer is also expected to bring out a smaller, 4.0-litre, twin-turbocharged V8 engine later that will be developed with AMG and would be an alternative to the V12 engine. The former might come paired to an eight speed automatic or a six speed manual transmission which could be then carried over to the latter variant as well.
Images of the interiors are not available as of now although some reports suggest that the instrument panels and other electronic dials were sourced from Mercedes Benz’s S-Class Coupe. We expect to see the interiors as well as the complete details of the DB11 as it marks its debut at the Geneva Motor Show starting tomorrow.
