Aston Martin DB9 successor planned, to be renamed

The British based automaker Aston Martin is planning to introduce a replacement for the DB9 which is expected to make its way onto the market in 2016 under a different name.

The Aston Martin DB9 will soon be discontinued but the car manufacturer will not be dropping the model from the market as a replacement is planned for 2016. The announcement hasn’t been made official but according to Autocar, the model in question will be renamed. The successor of the DB9 will likely wear the “DB” moniker but the number to follow it hasn’t been decided just yet.

The successor of the Aston Martin DB9 should be named the DB10 but according to the company’s design director, Marek Reichman, the carmaker has “skipped a number last time” so its name is currently unknown. In terms of design, the sports car will be looking “unmistakably an Aston and a DB at that” but it will be coming with a fresh touch. The vehicle will be based on a new architecture and aluminum will be used in order to keep its weight down. The DB9 successor is believed to be powered by a Mercedes-Benz AMG sourced engine, the 4.0 liter twin turbo V8, which will be connected to a 9-speed automatic transmission.
