Aston Martin DB11

It has been confirmed that Aston Martin’s next model will be known as ‘DB11’. Set to replace the ageing DB9, the new model will come next year as the first major product under the company’s Second Century Plan.

Why not DB10, you ask? In case you missed it, the moniker has been designated to the car that will be in the latest James Bond movie, Spectre.

Not much has been said about the car but we can safely expect the DB11 to carry some of the major styling cues over from the DB10. And thanks to the brand’s partnership with Daimler, the new car could feature similar electronics and gadgets to the S-Class‘.

Not only that, the DB11 could also be the first Aston Martin to be powered by the German automaker. One of the engines that could end up in the British supercar is the AMG GT‘s 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine, which churns out 510 hp and 650 Nm in S form.

Aston Martin CEO Andy Palmer said: “Not only is it a sign of our intention to continue the long line of iconic sports cars that bear the ‘DB’ moniker – the very bloodline of our brand – but it also shows the world our ambitious plan in action.”

“The coming years will see Aston Martin transform not only its entire range of models but also its scale and global presence, and the new DB11 will be central to that success.”
