15-Year Old Thai Renders New Aston Martin DB11


Read more

A young aspiring designer from Bangkok, Thailand, sent us these digital renders for the coupe that will replace the Aston Martin DB9 and which is rumored to carry the DB11 badge.

Just 15 years old, Jennarong Muengtaweepongsa tells us that he started sketching cars at age 6 before moving on to 3D modeling. You can color us impressed with his latest work that combines our knowledge from Aston Martin's prototype models like the one we caught testing yesterday on the Nürburgring with the firm's recent concept cars.

Here's what Muengtaweepongsa told us about his speculative take on the DB11:

"The car is a design study of the "continuation" of lines, and a mixture of various aspects from previous Aston Martin designs. The Front End's design is inspired by the CC100 speedster concept, especially with the grille design, along with the metal inlets being in the shape of the original Aston Martin grille design, the shape taken from the iconic DB5.

With the lines beginning beautifully from the front of the car continued into the rear, while forming an invisible "X" shape in the middle of the car, right in the driver's position. The indicator under the headlight also follows with the continuation theme, by continuing through the wheel into the side strakes and into the bodywork. The main line, which starts from next to the headlight, continues into the rear diffuser, with the rear being heavily inspired by the DB10."

Thanks to Jennarong Muengtaweepongsa for CGIs!
