British media is reporting Aston Martin's all-new architecture will be implemented for the first time in the next-gen DB9.

Aston's current VH architecture has been around since 2001 so naturally time has arrived for a replacement which according to Auto Express will be seen in the next generation DB9 set to come out in 2016. Reports indicate Aston will make extensive use of aluminum to lower the car's curb weight and also improve rigidity while giving them the opportunity to play around with track width and wheelbase for other models.

Besides receiving a whole new architecture, the upcoming DB9 will likely be powered by an AMG engine as a result of the collaboration between the two parties. The engine of choice will probably be a twin-turbo V8 4.0-liter set to debut later this year in the AMG GT. It is believed the engineers from Affalterbach will also be in charge of providing the DB9's gearbox and electrics.
