2017 Aston Martin DB11 leaked – Image via Autojunk.nl
Aston Martin’s long-awaited replacement for the DB9 grand tourer, the 2017 DB11, is set for its world debut at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show on March 1. However, a single photo of the car has surfaced and reveals many of its details.
The photo was uploaded to Dutch website Autojunk by user dennisjuh95, and was most likely taken while the car was on an official photo shoot. The car it depicts is very modern and features a number of elements from recent Aston Martin concepts.
The DB11 is the first car to be based on a new modular platform that will underpin most of Aston Martin’s future lineup. The automaker says the new platform will enable its cars to be at the forefront of design, performance and technology.
Among the new technology will be a twin-turbocharged 5.2-liter V-12 that was recently teased. There will also be a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 sourced from Mercedes-AMG as well as an advanced infotainment system likely sourced from Chinese firm Letv.
We should be receiving official details from Aston Martin soon, but for now check out our spy shots of prototypes testing over the past year.
