Will it be the DB10 or DB11? The British marque has already used the DB10 moniker for the coupe to be used in the upcoming James Bond movie Spectre. It was unveiled at a special function in London late last year. Director Sam Mendes took the covers off it on the 007 stage at Pinewood Studios. He and producer Barbara Broccoli said the DB10 was Spectre’s “first cast member.” The studio also used the DB10 to honour a 50-year partnership with the Bond films franchise, starting with Goldfinger and Sean Connery in the DB5 in 1964. But amid the hoopla surrounding Spectre and the DB10, Aston Martin let it be known that it had already trademarked the DB11 name.

One thing already established is the new model kicks off Aston Martin’s collaboration with performance house Mercedes-AMG. A tell-tale sign that the camouflaged car buy generic cialis here is using an AMG twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 is what appears to be an intercooler above the KU15 JXP number viagra effect start plate. The V8 is pretty the same as that used in the AMG GT and Mercedes-AMG C63 sedan and coupe, although the C63 misses out on the GT’s dry sump. Spy agency Automedia says the boosted V8 in the Aston Martin has been tuned to deliver 373kW (500bhp), allowing it to sit below the 423kW (568bhp) generated by the naturally aspirated 6.0-litre V12 Ford engine. Aston Martin is expected to phase out the current flagship V12 Ford in 2018.
