The Aston Martin DB12 - The World’s First Super Tourer

Introducing the Aston Martin DB12, redefining the very essence of touring. The world’s first Super Tourer. Built upon 73 years of iconic heritage, it breaks through boundaries, surpassing benchmarks, and challenging traditional norms. 

Out with the old, in with the new. That is the essence of Aston Martin's decision to replace the much loved DB11 with a new model, which the company has intriguingly categorised as the World’s First Super Tourer.

Piece by piece made from poise and purity to seek exhilaration at the speeds of missiles. DB12 is a statement car. One that assets Aston Martin’s position as a leader in performance, dynamics, engineering and technology.

Roberto Fedeli - Chief Technical Officer

There is no mistaking the new DB12 for anything other than an Aston Martin, the low and wide recognisable two-door design has been very deliberately crafted. From the new elegant lines and aggressive grille that gives it an unapologetic presence, to the raised centre console that holds you in the heart of the car. The Aston Martin DB12 reaches new heights of driver connection, performance and dynamic supremacy. This is no mere GT.

Every detail of the DB12 has been meticulously refined. The grille commands attention with its expanded size, while the swept-back headlights proudly display a new lighting signature. Notably, the frameless side mirrors have been elegantly downsized. Both the front and rear tracks of the car have been widened, exuding a more powerful presence on the road. The DB12 also proudly exhibits the recently revised winged badge, making it the first production car to showcase this emblem of distinction on its front.

A new standard of Performance

Unapologetic and unambiguous are the words used by Aston Martin. Its twin turbo V8 will achieve 0-60 mph in a mere 3.5 seconds and a top speed of 202 mph. The world's first Super Tourer will deliver a class-leading 680 Ps at 6000 rpm and 800 Nm between 2750-6000rpm, an increase of 34% when comparing it to the Aston Martin DB11.

The Aston Martin DB12 is engineered to maximise performance and intensify the driver experience. Meaningful increases in structural stiffness have been implemented and also sees the world's first use of Michelin Pilot Sport 5 S tyres, made to Aston Martin’s precise specification.

Double wishbone suspension, intelligent dampers and the latest ediff technology combine with a stiffer structure for unparalleled dynamics and the confidence to attack every corner.

The future is now

Swelling the surface of your senses with smart sound, digital intelligence, and a never-seen-before infotainment system. The Aston Martin DB12 provides the optimum blend of analogue controls and digital technology.

Arguably the most significant advancement comes in the interior, where the DB12 receives a revolutionary technological upgrade ever seen on any Aston Martin. An infotainment system that has been entirely designed and developed by Aston Martin. The 10.25 inch touch screen supports both wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and has been fully integrated in a multi-screen system featuring ultra-responsive capacitive touch control.
