New 2017 Aston Martin DB11 Photos Look Official

We think that these images of Aston Martin’s new DB11 super coupe that appeared on the web are the real deal, matching what we’ve seen up until now.

Aston Martin’s successor to the ageing DB9 signals a new era for the British brand, not only because it ditches the repetitive design that characterized most of its models over the past decade or so, but also because it will be one of the firm’s first cars to benefit from the Mercedes-AMG partnership.

The new DB11’s exterior incorporates styling cues from Aston’s recent studies like the DBX crossover, the DB10 from the James Bond flick ‘Spectre’ and even the CC110 centenary special, with the front end maintaining the brand’s signature grille, but decorating it with sharper details, and the fastback rear deviating from the brand’s design norms.

There are no pictures of the interior yet, but prototypes of the car were fitted with a digital instrument panel and electronic dials lifted straight off from Mercedes-Benz’s S-Class Coupe, suggesting that the production DB11 will share its electrical architecture with the German luxury marque’s top model.

It’s believed though that the DB11 will not be based on an AMG platform and instead continue riding on an evolved version of Aston’s VH aluminum architecture.

The British carmaker has already confirmed a new 5.2-liter twin-turbocharged V12 engine capable of delivering around 600 horses, possibly offered with both an eight-speed automatic and a six-speed manual, while the AMG will likely result in the availability of the former’s 4.0-liter turbo V8 as well.

We’ll know more on Tuesday during the DB11’s world premiere at the Geneva Motor Show.

Thanks to Enrico for the tip!
