The Aston Martin DB11 has only been with us for three years, which means that its replacement is still way into the future.
Which, of course, is no reason to not imagine what it could look like. Aston Martin is surely way ahead of us “civilians” when it comes to their designs, and the DB12, whenever it may arrive, is probably on some high level executive’s desk right now, probably in a series of (very) early sketches.
Still, this render here by Emre Husmen is pretty interesting too, once you get past the ridiculously large wheels.
While highly unlikely, it’s certainly not impossible for Aston Martin to turn the DB12 into a Shooting Brake, like this study, especially if it remains front-engined. We also wouldn’t be surprised if such a car was at least partially electrified, even in AMR spec – which means it’s more track-focused than the regular version.
In terms of styling, the model rendered here has sharper lines than the current DB11, a bigger grille and, of course, an entirely different rear end design.
Also interesting is the steering wheel, rendered in multiple colors, including some very distinctive, AMR-like ones. It has three spokes, carbon fiber paddle shifters and a screen on top of the airbag unit acting as a digital gauge cluster.
There’s even a readout on the screen saying “Charge – 99%”, which of course means electrification – something Aston Marin is already cooking up for its future models in real life.
