Aston Martin DB9 successor coming, company trademarks DB10 through to DB14 monikers

Article by Christian A., on August 20, 2014

We do know that Aston Martin is preparing some new models as it already announced that it will use engines provided by Mercedes-AMG. Today, we also found out that the British carmaker trademarked several monikers such as DB10, DB11, DB12, DB13 and DB14. We expect one of these to appear on the Aston Martin DB9 successor, which will arrive in 2016.

Company’s design director Marek Reichman already confirmed the fact that their next vehicle will indeed be a DB, but didn’t give any details regarding what number will follow.

Some rumors suggest that the vehicle will get the DB10 moniker but some company executives want the new car to keep its DB9 name. Moreover, we know that the new car will get the twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine that will be used by the 2015 Mercedes-AMG GT.

Codenamed M178, the new engine generates 510 hp at 6,250 rpm and a maximum torque of 650 Nm (479 lb-ft) between 1,750 rpm and 4,750 rpm. Same engine will be used by the upcoming 2015 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG sedan, which will arrive at the 2014 Paris Motor Show.
