Aston Martin might use smaller engines on its models image

The British based automaker Aston Martin is planning to use smaller engines on its models and we might see these in the next couple of years.

With the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG possibly getting a diesel version at this year’s Paris Motor Show and now with Aston Martin saying that it might use smaller engines on its model, the world is preparing for the Apocalypse because, if you even suggested such a thing 10 years ago, you would have been publically embarrassed in the town’s plaza, along with witches and elfs.

But while Mercedes-Benz is definitely mad, Aston Martin might be on to something quite interesting, considering the fact that over the past six years, the company managed to reduce the emissions of its V8 engines and V12 units by 25 percent and there is still work to do on these powerplants. But going from a V12 to a four-cylinder and even to a three-cylinder engine is just mad, but, then again, maybe 10 turbochargers will do the trick and help improve fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. Look at it this way, we might see a new Cygnet soon.
