Aston Martin DB11 Spied Hot Weather Testing

The Aston Martin DB11 isn’t shying away from getting caught on camera.

Quickly becoming a favorite for AutoGuide.com‘s spy photographers, the Aston Martin DB11 has been spied again, this time undergoing hot weather testing. Very few details have been confirmed on the successor to the Aston Martin DB9, with rumors ranging from it being powered by a turbocharged engine sourced from Mercedes-AMG to the brand sticking with a 6.0-liter V12 naturally aspirated engine.

What is confirmed is the fact that the Aston Martin DB11 will be built on an all-new, lightweight platform that will eventually underpin more Aston Martin products in the future, as the British automaker aims to replace its entire sports car lineup by the end of the decade. The company previewed the DB11’s styling with the Aston Martin DB10 that will star in the upcoming James Bond Spectre film.

Previous spy photos revealed that the interior of the DB11 sported a toggle switch marked “intercooler,” which led to the rumors that the company is considering using a turbocharged powertrain for its next-generation sports car.

Look for more information on the Aston Martin DB11 to surface as the car gets closer to production form.
