Aston Martin is making waves in the Indian automotive scene with the launch of its latest grand tourer, the DB12. Successor to DB11, the DB12 comes with a price tag of ₹4.59 crore (ex-showroom).
When it comes to design, the coupe boasts a fresh set of headlights and a revamped front fascia, showcasing a larger rendition of Aston Martin's iconic grille. While the overall design may seem a bit familiar, the DB12 boasts wider front and rear tracks, hinting at its enhanced performance and road presence.
Under the hood of the DB12 lies a robust 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine sourced from AMG. It generates a 671 BHP and a 800 Nm of torque, marking a 34% increase in power compared to its predecessor, the DB11. To channel this power, the DB12 is equipped with an 8-speed automatic transmission. Aston Martin says that the DB12 can dash from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.5 seconds, achieving a top speed of 325 km/h.
The DB12 also received a significant interior makeover, flaunting an overhauled design and a host of new features. The centerpiece is a brand-new 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system, developed in-house. It is equipped with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and features a range of connectivity functions, including Over-The-Air (OTA) updates and an array of subscription-based services. Additionally, the cabin boasts an 11-speaker sound system, plus the center console is adorned with physical touch buttons, adding a tactile dimension to the car's controls.
