Introducing the Aston Martin DB12: The World’s First Super Tourer

  • Aston Martin DB12


Aston Martin has unveiled the new DB12, a Super Tourer that represents a new era for the legendary DB bloodline. The DB12 is poised and ready to redefine the essence of exhilaration. With exceptional refinement, state-of-the-art technology, and indulgent luxury with a breath-taking driving experience. Aston Martin celebrates its 110th anniversary and 75 years of the DB model line with the introduction of the DB12.

Distinctive Luxury

Proudly showcasing the iconic style that Aston Martin is celebrated for, the DB12 presents an immaculate fusion of 75 years of DB heritage and awe-inspiring proportions that redefine the Super Tourer class. With an unmistakable presence, the DB12 presents a bold and assertive design with a muscular physique and segment-defining proportions. The front-end features a larger radiator aperture and reshaped splitter, complemented by new LED headlights and a distinctive Daytime Running Lamp (DRL) signature. The car rides on 21-inch forged alloy wheels and features the iconic Aston Martin wings badge. The DB12's interior is a perfect fusion of modern aesthetics, timeless artistry, and top-tier materials. It offers a luxurious sanctuary for both driver and passengers, blending clean, contemporary design with classic craftsmanship. 

A significant milestone of the DB12 is the debut of Aston Martin's cutting-edge next-generation infotainment system. This remarkable innovation is completely custom-made, meticulously crafted, and exclusively created by Aston Martin. 

Power, Precision, Performance

Welcome to heart-racing, class-leading, real-world performance. The DB12 is equipped with a 4.0 Twin-Turbo V8 engine that delivers 680PS/671bhp at 6000rpm and 800Nm/590lb ft between 2750-6000rpm, an increase of 34% compared with the outgoing DB11. The DB12 accelerates from 0 to 60-mph in a hair-raising 3.5 seconds and boasts a top speed of 202-mph. With an 8-speed automatic transmission and an Electronic Rear Differential (E-Diff), handling and cornering capabilities are refined and improved. The car's structure has been optimised for increased torsional stiffness, resulting in improved suspension performance and overall driving dynamics. The DB12 prioritises driver engagement and offers a range of driving modes, including GT, Sport, Sport+, Wet, and Individual. These modes adjust the dynamic behaviour of the car, allowing the driver to explore the limits of grip and traction with confidence. The DB12 also features Electronic Stability Control (ESC) with four predefined modes to provide progressive control and enhance safety. The car is equipped with Michelin Pilot Sport 5 S tires specially tuned by Aston Martin for precision steering and maximum grip in wet and dry conditions.

No Ordinary GT

The DB12 represents a new era for Aston Martin, where all models will be characterised by high performance, advanced technology, and exquisite craftsmanship. It radiates confidence, effortlessly capturing attention with its athletic physique, perfectly balanced aggression, and unparalleled elegance. It is a statement, showcasing Aston Martin's position as a leader in performance, dynamics, engineering, and technology. The DB12 marks the start of an exciting new chapter for the brand, delivering a unique performance-design driving experience. 

This is no mere GT.
