Introducing the Aston Martin DB12: The world’s first Super Tourer
Ultra-luxurious interior design focuses on a driver-centric cockpit, integrating latest technologies with luxury craftsmanship and materials.
Aston Martin is proud to introduce the new DB12. Delivering a quantum shift in sporting character and dynamic capability, this new generation of the legendary DB bloodline defines its own new category.
Combining a scintillating driving experience with exceptional refinement, state-of-the-art technology and indulgent luxury, the DB12 demands a new definition. Grand is not enough – this is the world’s first Super Tourer.
The DB12 takes a new direction. One which makes it the most complete and accomplished DB model in Aston Martin’s history. Blessed with exceptional performance and handling to satisfy and reward the most demanding drivers, its meticulously honed chassis is perfectly matched to a class-leading 680PS/800NM V8 Twin-Turbo powertrain. The result is an energised Aston Martin that shines with authenticity, capability and passion to deliver a driving experience that’s second to none.
Engineered to maximise performance and intensify emotion, the DB12 is the product of a holistic approach. One that starts with meaningful increases in structural stiffness and ends with Michelin Pilot Sport 5 S tyres made to Aston Martin’s precise specification. Supported by an all-new suspension system featuring the latest adaptive dampers, control and connection are further amplified by an exceptionally precise and direct Electronic Power Assisted Steering (EPAS) system and an Electronic Rear Differential (E-Diff) that enhances agility and brings the DB12 alive on the most dynamic of roads.
Supported by an industry leading Electronic Stability Control (ESC) system, which employs six-axis inertia measurement to predict available grip, the DB12 also gives the driver a choice of five pre-set driving modes allowing the freedom to incrementally explore the limits of grip and traction with complete confidence and safety. Put simply, no series production Aston Martin has dedicated itself so completely to setting new dynamic benchmarks.
The announcement of DB12 comes as Aston Martin celebrates two significant milestones in 2023: its monumental 110th anniversary and 75 years of the illustrious DB model line. When founders Lionel Martin and Robert Bamford officially formed the partnership that became Aston Martin, they ignited more than a century of automotive passion, cutting-edge British innovation and high-octane racing success. It comes at a time when Aston Martin is enjoying one of the most dynamic periods in its 110-year history thanks to continued podium success in the 2023 Formula 1® season. Competing at the pinnacle of world motorsport remains a key pillar of the marque’s brand and product strategy.
DB12’s core values of high-performance and ultra-luxury are spearheading Aston Martin’s next generation of sports cars. As such it heralds a new era. One which will see all Aston Martin models characterised by prodigious performance and pinpoint dynamics, seamless integration of advanced technologies and the sublime style and exemplary craftsmanship for which the brand has long been renowned.
Roberto Fedeli, Group chief technology officer of Aston Martin said of the new DB12: “DB12 is a statement car.”
The latest addition to Aston Martin’s most illustrious bloodline, DB12 exemplifies the brand by boldly moving forward. That wholesale progression is reflected in the DB12’s styling, which features an all-new front-end treatment, wider stance and more muscular surfaces for increased presence. The interior has also been completely redesigned, with clean horizontal lines emphasising the sense of space and providing the perfect contemporary backdrop to a new state-of-the-art infotainment system. Emphatically fresh yet unmistakably Aston Martin, DB12 defines the new breed of Super Tourer.
