2022 Aston Martin DB11: AMG V8 gains power boost, V12 AMR name dropped

The 2022 Aston Martin DB11 has received a round of updates for the new model year. Leading the updates to Aston Martin’s mid-tier grand touring car is a power boost for the 'entry-level' DB11's Mercedes-AMG-developed 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine, from 375kW to 393kW – matching the special-edition Vantage F1 Edition revealed earlier this year. No details of torque outputs or 0-100km/h times have been given, though the top speed has increased from 301km/h to 309km/h.
