Aston Martin keeps making big moves and will soon have the 2017 Aston Martin DB11 replacing DB9.
Everyone has been trying to get a preview of the lighter and more powerful supercar upgrade to the DB9. Internally, the successor is being referred to as Project VH500, but the word on the street is the final name will be DB11. Plus, Aston Martin has already trademarked the name DB11.
If you’re wondering what happened to the DB10, well, that’s the name of James Bond’s hot new ride in the upcoming movie Spectre. The film won’t hit theaters until November 2015 but fans can catch a glimpse of the DB10 competing with an orange Jaguar C-X75 in trailers currently released.
Meanwhile, Aston Martin took the supposed DB11 prototype out on the track at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show and it seems that every aspect of the DB9 has been improved upon.
The updates aren’t ending with the 2017 Aston Martin DB11. The motor company also plans to improve the smaller Vantage and debut its revamp one year after the DB11. By the decade’s end, Aston Martin plans to have a fully renewed current lineup plus three additional cars in new extensions, including a DBX-inspired crossover. These new supercars should pair well with the brand’s burgeoning fleet of powerboats and yachts.
