for a long time, Aston Martin announces to the world that it will introduce a new range of cars,

What can a brand like Aston Martin bring that we haven’t seen before? Nothing and we don’t complain, because we love what we do.

That’s exactly what the new DB12 is all about., a model that doesn’t re-invent the wheel. It’s as sporty as it is elegant in equal parts, a true high-end grand tourer that lives up to the tradition DB11, DB9, DB7 and so on. But the friends at Aston Martin finally came up with a unique nomenclature for this range of models that they’ve been doing for so long: supertourism.

The truth is that Aston Martins have always been supertourism cars, only today the “super” category is much more powerful than it used to be and the DB12 is much more gifted than its predecessors.

DB12 Retains the four-litre V8 twin turbo sourced from Mercedes-AMGHand built, but tuned by the folks at Aston Martin so it has a personality of its own.

Reach 680 horsepower and 800 Nm of torque34% more performance than DB11. This was achieved by revised cam profiles, optimization of the compression ratio, use of larger diameter turbochargers, and a complete redesign of the cooling system, adding two auxiliary coolers to the center main radiator. To ensure that the desired engine intake air temperature is achieved under all conditions, an additional low-temperature radiator has been integrated into the charge air cooler water circuit.

Besides, External auxiliary cooling system for engine oil now has twice the surface area Compared to its predecessor to better respond to the needs of the lubrication circuit. Cooling was improved thanks to improved air heat flow, a 56% increase in the size of the openings to allow a greater flow of cool air to enter the radiators, and air space for the two turbochargers in the central parts of the bonnet. goes up. , to allow hot air to escape.

Similarly, the engine uses a transaxle to connect to an eight-speed automatic gearbox driving the rear axle, which completes its work with carbon fiber shafts and an electronic LSD differential.
