Custom Chassis
Built on a bonded aluminum chassis that boasts a 7 percent increase in torsional stiffness than the previous generation, the DB12 gets new intelligent adaptive dampers with stiffer roll bars. The DB12 is also the first DB to get an electronic rear differential, which works with Aston’s electronic stability control to provide more consistent handling, greatly improved cornering in all weather conditions, and a more comfortable ride when cruising in GT mode. After driving the DB12 in monsoon-like conditions, we can say with certainty that wet-weather performance is impressive.
