Aston Martin Tests AMG V8 Powered DB11 At The Nurburgring [UPDATED]

Update: It has emerged that this prototype is testing a twin-turbocharged V8 from AMG.

You’re probably thinking to yourself, “Wasn’t the DB11 released at Geneva?” It was, which makes this particular prototype all the more interesting.

Recently filmed doing the rounds near the Nurburgring, this heavily camouflaged DB11 could be one of two things. For starters, it could simply be a production-spec DB11 which the British firm is testing to iron out any complaints the press had about the car before customer deliveries commence.

Alternatively, something more significant could be in the works. A quick run of the license plates fails to provide any hints as to what Aston is testing here nor do any evident visual differences between it and the production car.

It is certainly strange the marque has kept the white and black camo wrap on the car given we already know what the finished product looks like. Is this because Aston is trying to disguise some minor visual tweaks? Or perhaps early tests are being conducted for the limited edition Vanquish Zagato?

Whatever’s going on, the importance of the DB11 to the future of the brand cannot be underestimated. It will make or break the company.
