The new 447kW/600Nm 5.2 litre twin-turbo V12 Aston Martin engine is now in full production in Germany.
The new 2017 Aston Martin DB11 will arrive in Australian dealerships later in the year.
Being hand-built at the Aston Martin Engine Plant (AMEP) in Cologne, Brian Fitzsimons, Aston Martin Chief Engineer, Powertrain, says the new engine is a very special unit.
“To see this new engine go into full production at AMEP makes me very proud. Designing and developing the 5.2 litre twin-turbo power plant has been an all-consuming passion for me and my team.
“Knowing that the end result would be built with meticulous care in a truly state-of-the-art facility such as AMEP was an added motivation.
“It’s a hugely exciting time to be an engineer at Aston Martin, not least because this is just the beginning for the new twin-turbo V12.”
Australian pricing for the new Aston Martin DB11 will start from $428,032.
