Aston Martin teases new 5.2-liter twin-turbo V12
Although Aston Martin’s current technical agreement with Mercedes-AMG involves the German firm helping co-develop electrical architecture as well as new V8 engines for future models, the British-based prestige automaker has just released a bit of information about its own next-gen V12 which will replace the veteran 5.9-liter unit.
Expected to make its debut this March in Geneva -- perhaps in the engine bay of the equally-new Aston Martin DB11 -- this tech-rich motivator will be a 5.2-liter twin-turbo rumored to be capable of producing around 600 horsepower. In addition to being smaller and lighter than the existing naturally-aspirated V12, it’s certain to be far more fuel-efficient and emissions-friendly. For the moment, Aston Martin only confirms that its new engine is “coming soon.”
