What If The Aston Martin DB11’s Replacement Were An Edgy Shooting Brake?

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.

    This is not news and IS just an imaged DB11 Shooting Brake, which could be built today.

    It’s never going to happen unless some aftermarket company does so.

  • Six_Tymes

    If it looked like these renders, YES Please. not that I can afford one.

  • I’m in… By the way, Aston should stop with numbers, DB should stay, DB12 = V12, DB8 = V8… DBS = Monster version of DB12, Could make later a DB-E, A DB8-E for an hybrid… Their names are always looking in the past, but with no real meaning, the V8 Vantage was a model, became the Vantage, V8 or V12. The new Virage was a DB9 facelifted, sold a year, surprise the Virage became the DB9…

  • Bash

    That would be nice.

  • Nordschleife

    Looks very good. I do hope for this derivative with the current version. Aston isn’t afraid to build some bespoke models and this will fit well in their current lineup.

  • DR.FUNK

    That could absolutely work.
    Go all-in with the change…make it full electric too.
