DB12: Robb Report Car of the Year

  • Aston Martin DB12


Presenting the DB12, the groundbreaking super tourer renowned worldwide for its continual accumulation of accolades, the most recent being the esteemed title of 2024 Robb Report Car of the Year—a distinction that has eluded Aston Martin for over two decades.

Outshining a field of 10 luxury sports cars and SUVs during the rigorous annual driving program in late 2023, the DB12 charmed over 100 dedicated Robb Report readers, discerning judges, and editorial experts who evaluated contenders across six key categories: design, luxury and comfort, performance, utility, and intangibles.

As the vanguard of Aston Martin's next generation of sports cars, the DB12 captured hearts and focus, demonstrating that a time-honored formula—a breathtaking GT seamlessly blending sports car prowess with opulent interiors—is unrivaled.

Among judges, readers, and their guests, the DB12 stood head and shoulders above its peers, heralded as "a new dawn for Aston Martin," boasting "remarkable exterior aesthetics, blistering acceleration, and assured handling."

Marco Mattiacci, Aston Martin's Global Chief Brand and Commercial Officer, expressed immense pride in DB12 gracing the cover of the February edition of Robb Report as the 2024 Car of the Year. This accolade holds particular significance as it's determined not solely by industry insiders but by luxury car aficionados after firsthand road tests.

"This latest accolade for the DB12 reaffirms our conviction that Aston Martin now reigns supreme in the ultra-luxury, high-performance segment with our next generation of sports cars," said Mattiacci. "As we embark on a new chapter for our front-engine portfolio, we're thrilled that Robb Report's readers have acknowledged the significant strides in design, performance, and technology embodied by the DB12."

With each accolade, the DB12 continues to ignite passions, propelling Aston Martin confidently into an exhilarating new era.
