  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

Car and Driver: Aston Martin’s New V-12 Loses Displacement, Gains Two Turbos

Recommended Posts

Aston Martin V-12

-

Aston Martin’s all-new DB11 sports car—the brand skipped from DB9 to DB11 because “DB10” was reserved for James Bond’s latest ride—will debut at the Geneva auto show in March. With it will be an equally fresh V-12 engine, only with a modern twist. Aston Martin has just confirmed that its favorite engine format, the V-12, will be updated with slightly less displacement and the addition of two turbochargers.

Aston doesn’t elaborate on the changes, but a glimpse of the engine from a teaser video the company posted online shows “V-12 5.2 Twin Turbo” lettering on the engine cover. It’s highly probable that “5.2” is a reference to the engine’s displacement, marking a decrease from Aston Martin’s current twelve, which displaces 5.9 liters (Aston labels it as a “6.0”). “Twin Turbo” seems fairly self-explanatory. Official power figures, as well as a look at the DB11 itself, will have to wait until Geneva. For now, revel in the new engine’s sweet, sweet sounds as it revs in the video below. The good news? The turbos don’t seem to have affected that V-12 exhaust note.
