Aston Martin DB11 Gets New Twin-Turbo V-8 Engine Option

First engine sourced from Mercedes-AMG now available

Aston Martin has announced the DB11 will gain a second engine choice for the 2018 model year, a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8 that packs 503 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque, sourced from Mercedes-AMG. The new engine will slot below the more powerful 5.2-liter twin-turbo V-12 rated at 600 hp and 516 lb-ft. The only transmission choice available is an eight-speed automatic sourced from ZF. Aston says the V-8-powered DB11 will have a top speed of 187 mph and a 062-mph time of 4.0 seconds.

The engine has been tailored to fit with the DB11's bespoke wet-sump lubrication system, air intake, and exhaust system by Aston Martin's engineering team. Aston Martin also changed throttle calibration and ECU software and programming. Compared to the V-12-powered DB11, the V-8-powered DB11 is 253 pounds lighter and features new engine mounts that allow the engine to be placed as low as possible to optimize the car's center of gravity.
