Aston Martin's new DB11 gets some help from AMG - Acquire
Aston Martin DB11 V8

Aston Martin is introducing a new engine option for the DB11 and they've sourced it from none other than AMG. The acclaimed twin-turbo 4.0L V8 that has been used in the AMG GT will be offered as a new option in the DB11, producing a total of 503 hp, which will get it from 0-62 in four seconds flat and will achieve a top speed of 187 mph. 

The V8 will also be a more efficient option than the flagship 5.2L V12 with an EU Combined fuel economy figure of 28.5mpg. Aston Martin also created a new air intake, exhaust, and wet sump lubrication system specifically for the V8 model. Other modifications include an updated ECU, updated engine and throttle mapping, and revisions to the suspension bushing, geometry, anti-roll bars, springs, dampers, and ESP software. 

On the exterior side, the company made some slight changes to separate it from the V12 such as a new alloy wheel finish, dark headlamp bezels, and dual hood vents in a black or titanium-finish mesh. All other specs and interior customization will be the same as its V12 counterpart.
