2024 Aston Martin DB12: First Look

A grand touring — or GT — car is often powerful yet large and heavy, geared more for high-speed cruising rather than adroit maneuvering, although the 2024 Aston Martin DB12 has been designed to do more than cruise. 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 the first DB car to get an electronic rear differential, which works with the 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.
