For those with a quarter of a million dollars to throw away, the DB12 is a more powerful, sleeker and sportier successor to the DB11.
Set to start at $245,000, the 2024 Aston Martin DB12 debuts as the successor to the outgoing DB11. The DB12 has 4.0 -lear v8 of V8 Lita of 671 hp, and clocks say it will reach 60 MP2 in seconds of speed of the speed of 202 m / h.
In addition to the Chassis Report, DB12 has different electronies in Tire Sir 5. Finish the old, make way for the new. That’s the crux of Aston Martin’s decision to replace the DB11 with a new model, one the company prefers to call a super tourer rather than a grand tourer.
The trademarks released, an Aston Martin DB12 2024 of the real world than the model he replaces.
No contempt for the new DB12 and another non-Aston Martin, as well as four lower plans and large ways, well, by design. Larger headlamps, swept-back headlamps with a new light signature and smaller frameless side mirrors.
The front and rear tracks are also wider (about 0.2 inches in the front and 0.9 inches in the rear). On the nose of the car is Aston’s recently redesigned wing logo, the DB12 being the first production car to appear on it.
Under that long hood
Adopting the new DB model also means saying no to the 5.2-liter twin-turbo V12 from before. Right now the only engine option – at least until Aston shows what performance AMR is capable of – is a twin-turbo V-8 with the same 4.0-liter displacement as before.
As before, the engine is still a hand-built unit from Mercedes-AMG. However, Aston unlocked a lot more power by adding bigger turbos, revising the compression ratio and completely overhauling the cooling system.
Peak output from the new, upgraded V8 is 671 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 590 lb-ft of torque between 2,750 and 6,000 rpm. Not only are those numbers higher than the original V-8’s 528 horsepower and 513 lb-ft, but they’re also higher than the old V-12,
which produced 630 ponies and 516 lb-ft. The upgraded 4.0 liter still provides power to the rear via an eight-speed automatic gearbox that now has a shorter final drive ratio. Aston claims the DB12 will hit 60mph in 3.5 seconds, and top speed is 202mph.
Power and pavement
The DB12 rides on a newly developed suspension with stiffer anti-roll bars and Aston’s latest dampers.
They carry a set of 21-inch wheels shod in specially designed Michelin Pilot Sport S 5 summer tires, size 275/35R-21 at the front and 315/30R-21 at the rear. Plastic fishing is better controlled with the introduction of electronic fishing
The DB12 uses an upgraded electronic front-wheel drive system that delivers an independent steering column that Aston says improves feel. Suspension is provided by standard 15.7-inch front and 14.2-inch rear cast-iron rotors.
New brake boosters are said to improve pedal feel, and those looking for a more responsive braking experience can opt for a carbon-ceramic package, which is said to save around 60 kilograms of weight. no weight.
With the revised chassis of the DB12, its integrated aluminum structure will be 7% stiffer, the result of improved underbody reinforcement.
Since the DB12 aims to be more than a grand tourer – it’s billed as a premium tourer, mind you – it has to have an interior to match that mission.
While we can’t comment on its legroom or headroom, or how comfortable or uncomfortable the driving position is until we get inside, the photos show that the house will be more alive than before.
The expensive materials and endless styling available from Aston’s Q program is a no-brainer, but the DB12’s interior also appears to have improved ergonomics.
The dashboard layout is clean and it looks like there could be more storage space based on the space under the center console. A number of physical switches, including rollers for the volume and HVAC controls as well as powerful electronic switches,
are located on the slopes between the touchscreen and the infotainment system. The latter also looks better than the old Mercedes product setup. Aston’s new infotainment system has a 10.3-inch touchscreen and comes with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Car navigation includes 3D maps and an internet connection, but we think smartphone mirroring will be the default for getting directions for most users.
Along with the ability to accept software updates over the air, the DB12 series marks the launch of Aston’s new smartphone app, which allows access to vehicle-specific content and subscription services, including three that are free for the first three years.
2024 Aston Martin DB12 will go on sale in America in the third quarter of this year. Although the company has not released an official price, it said that the coupe model should start at $ 245,000.
For those familiar with the DB11, that’s a $37,000 increase over the V-8 Coupe. We expect the DB12 Volante convertible to be revealed at some point, and it will start around $260,000.
