Despite all the leaks and teasers for the Aston Martin DB11, the company is staying mum on its specifications until it is properly unveiled. It is believed that the model will feature a 5.2-liter turbocharged V12 engine, sending around 600 horsepower to the rear wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission. A manual transmission is rumored to be available, which was hinted at with the manual DB10 in the latest James Bond Spectre movie.

The official presentation for the Aston Martin DB11 debut is scheduled to take place on March 1 in Switzerland and AutoGuide.com will be reporting live from the 2016 Geneva Motor Show.
