Design of the Aston Martin DB12

Aesthetically, the DB12 is only slightly different from the DB11 from which it derives. There are a few changes, including a new front bumper and a larger grille. The model also sports a new hood and revised Aston Martin badge, created to celebrate the brand's 110th anniversary this year.
