Report: Aston Martin to adopt turbochargers for its next DB9

Aston Martin’s in the midst of giving their lineup and entirely and much-needed makeover.

And part of these plans include adopting forced-induction technology to help improve fuel economy without sacrificing power. That said, CAR reports Aston Martin should be adopting turbochargers for its next DB9 replacement, which could be called the DB11.

The plan is to stick with the same 6.0L V12 built at Ford’s Cologne plant in Germany, though it’ll be reengineered to feature turbochargers to allow for a power increase from the curren’t version’s 517hp and 458 lb-ft of torque.

But the new DB9 replacement won’t just get more power, as Aston’s planning on giving the next car a huge diet. As of now, the DB9 weighs in at a pretty hefty 3,935lbs.

Later on, Aston also intends to offer a a 4.0L twin-turbocharged V8 as an option next to the V12, sourced from Mercedes-AMG, as per their latest agreement to collaborate together.

A reveal date in 2016 at Geneva is expected.
