Aston Martin DB12 debuts with a revised 671 hp V8

Aston Martin has officially unveiled the DB11 successor, aptly named ‘DB12’. However, the single-digit increment comes with major upgrades on both technology and engine fronts.

The Aston Martin DB12 is powered by a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine which now produces 34% more power than the outgoing version. This has been achieved with new camshafts, larger turbos and a reworked cooling system. The peak output of 671 hp and 590 lb-ft is even higher compared to the V12 DB11. The engine is mated to an 8-speed automatic gearbox, which enables the GT to sprint from 0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds, topping out at 202 mph.

The DB12 shares its underpinnings with its predecessor, but the chassis has been upgraded for 7% higher torsional rigidity. The car comes with adaptive dampers and five drive modes: Normal, Sport, Sport+, Wet and Individual. It is fitted with 21-inch wheels that are said to be 18 lbs lighter as well.

Aston Martins are known for their beautiful designs. The DB12 is no exception. The car gets a larger front grill with reprofiled LED headlamps and a revised front air dam. The vents on the front fenders have been retained, along with the rear fascia which looks similar to the DB11.
