Aston Martin must insist on V12 internal combustion engines for a few more years

In contrast to partners Bentley and MG Motors, who have announced their electrification route, Aston Martin has not yet given up on V12 internal combustion engines. And we are not talking about focusing on hybrid power, for example, but insisting on making engines of this type, which are now retired even by historical favorites like Ferrari.

Currently, the Aston Martin DBX 707, powered by the AMG 4.0 V8, is 0.1 seconds back from 0-60 km/h than the old DBS with the 5.2 V12. This is also why Valhalla replaced its old V12 with a V8 engine. Still, in the assessment of Tobias Moers, CEO of the British automaker, the old engine still has potential to explore.


“Having the Vantage V12 shows that there is still a place for the V12 in our generation of sports cars,” said Moers, in A recent interview with the British publication Autocar. “The Vantage V12 gives an idea of ​​where we are going with the brand. It is the best performing sports car Aston has ever produced.”

Production will continue until 2027

Also according to the executive, Aston Martin should continue to produce V12 internal combustion engines until 2027. After that, the petrol models will be downgraded to the V8 4.0 present in the DBX 707 or the six-cylinder itself created by the British automaker, today. feeding patterns like DBS. The V12s, however, could go on the Aston MARTIN assembly line as custom products if they have customers looking for them, in Moers’ assessment.

O reduce Nor should it be at the same level as what has been done by the Mercedes-AMG partner. We already know that, in the next generation of C63 and E63 super sedans, the current V8 biturbos will be replaced by four-cylinder engines. “It will be a step too far”, says the executive. “It may be my creation, but it doesn’t fit Aston as a brand.”
