Our spies are on the job once again and this time they have spotted a camouflaged prototype of the Aston Martin DB11.
It was only yesterday when we saw the front fascia of Aston’s upcoming DB11 and now a prototype is back to flaunt its sleek silhouette. It undoubtedly has a sexy profile and we are very anxious to find out what’s hiding underneath that rear disguise applied on this prototype.
From what we can see so far, the rear end does not have the final configuration. This is more obvious especially if you look at the area around the exhaust tips which by the way will likely receive a shiny finish on the production car.
You might remember an image that we posted towards the end of last month showing the back of the DB11, but chances are that was only a Photoshop job. That being said, looking at this prototype makes us believe that although that was only an unofficial render, it was probably very close to reality.
Overall, the exterior design will be evolutionary rather than revolutionary compared to the outgoing DB9. That’s not necessarily a bad thing as from what we have seen so far, the new DB11 will be drop dead gorgeous in our humble opinion.
As far as the interior is concerned, older spy images showed prototypes featuring Mercedes-sourced parts. We don’t know for sure how many of these bits and pieces will be found in the production car, but most likely some of them will make it to the road-going model.
Upon launch, the Aston Martin DB11 will be offered with a newly developed biturbo 5.2-liter V12 engine that could generate around 600 horsepower (447 kilowatts). Later during the car’s life cycle, a smaller biturbo 4.0-liter V8 sourced from Mercedes-AMG will be added.
We are only two weeks away from the DB11’s official reveal set to take place at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. The supercar from Gaydon will likely go on sale in the second half of the year and will be followed by Vantage and Vanquish replacements due by 2018.
