The DB12 does not exist and like the Aston Martin team in F1, it borrows a specific engine from Mercedes-AMG. That 4-sixty V8 was acclaimed for great reasons, but still the British engineers chose to put their weapons in it. Using two separate turbochargers and an optimized cooling system, the Aston Martin expresses 671 horse power and 800 Nm of torque, which travel courtesy of an 8-sequence automatic transmission to the rear wheels.
Aston Martin reckons the DB12 can go from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds and reach a top speed of 322 km/h. Being a super tourer, acceleration is not an issue, because its brand focuses on refining its maneuverability, integrating an active suspension, a stiffer and lighter chassis, an electronic rear differential, and different driving modes to make the most of the DB12 in different situations. . conditions The disc brakes are 400 mm at the front and 360 mm at the rear, and if you have the money to spare, you can opt for the carbon-ceramic ones.
The center console setup with physical buttons and small screen is the best part of the DB12.
Perhaps the most attractive thing about the DB12 is its cabin, and it’s not just because of the quality of the Alcantara or its impeccable finish. In contrast to the DB11, the new model has opted for a cockpit structured around the driver, a prominent center console with all the necessary controls close by, and most of all that are still physical buckles. The central hub breaks out the huge roar of the V8, the DB12’s stopping ball in the control arms, adjust the camera’s temperature, play with the firmness of the suspension, the traction modes or the sound of the exhaust film.
The whole concept works because Aston Martin doesn’t focus on creating the biggest screen possible. The British understand that it is not necessary, and opt for a sensible 10.25 unit completely integrated into the solar center. It’s a display that isn’t overpowering or distracting from the spirit of the DB12, and it’s a joy to drive at low or high speeds with a high level of comfort. Other features are worth noting, because a system with physical buttons and screens that don’t intrude like this is a thousand times better than a huge board inserted into the dashboard.
For the Martin Aston enthusiast or secret agent, all this comes as a free luxury. A DB12 will easily fetch $200,000, and that’s without options or extras. Give it a better V8 than the V12s that came before it, a very nice driver, a refined interior, and everyone thinks you’re a spy. A flying version is on the way, and neither are the regular models that get more out of the V8, or join the hybrids.
