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, photos of the car have leaked online and reveal many of its details.
The two leaked photos were uploaded to Dutch website Autojunk by users Autoblogger anddennisjuh95. One looks like an official studio shot while the other was most likely taken while the DB11 was on an official photo shoot. We’re glad to see that the new car is very modern and features a number of elements from handsome Aston Martin concepts like the DB10, CC100 and DBX.
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 ofprototypes testing over the past year.
