The Twin-Turbo V12 Aston Martin DB11 Has Arrived, So How Does It Sound?

Video

Here's your answer.

Aston Martin’s naturally aspirated 6.0-liter V12 is on the verge of retirement. Kind of sad really, but Aston Martin isn’t about to let anyone down. While many automakers have resorted to downsizing in the number of cylinders, Aston Martin is sticking with the V12, though with an exception: it’s now twin-turbocharged. The UK automaker developed in-house its new 5.2-liter twin-turbocharged V12 and it’ll debut in the all-new DB11. With 600 hp on tap, Aston Martin claims the DB11 will sprint from 0-62 mph in only 3.9 seconds. Top speed is 200 mph.

The specs are fantastic, to say the least, but we’re left wondering one thing: how does this new twin-turbo V12 sound? After all, few engines can replace the roar of a naturally aspirated V12. Auto Express was given the opportunity to drive a pre-production DB11, and the first impressions have arrived.
