At the 2016 Geneva International Motor Show, being held over March 3–13, Aston Martin CEO Andy Palmer announced plans to refresh Aston Martin's entire line-up, as well as sharing plans to add three new models to the range by 2020.

Aston Martin is looking to not just retain the heritage of ‘beautiful, powerful, handcrafted cars’, but also future-proof the brand in a changing motoring landscape. The new plan for Aston Martin is built on four product pillars: sports cars, a new crossover, saloons, and a growing range of specialist-series limited-volume vehicles.

The first of these changes is the DB11, which was released in early March in Geneva, with a barnstorming 5.2-litre twin-turbo V12 putting out 539hp/620Nm. 

The next release will be Aston's ‘sports crossover’, the DBX, which is to be built at a brand-new production facility in Wales.

We're looking forward to the arrival of the DB11 in New Zealand, which will apparently be towards the end of 2016.

My addiction to all things vehicular started when I would take a few minutes to stop eating my crayons and utilize them to draw Knight Rider’s KITT, the Duke boys' General Lee, and anything else that roared across the TV screen. Unfortunately, my ongoing desire to consume my art supplies rendered my flourishing design career over before it began. Luckily, there was room on the car yard when I started my first job in car sales at the tender age of 18. Following a mind-numbing career in the corporate world, I returned to the professional world of cars and have recently launched as a better way for Kiwis to buy and sell cars, and, a UKNZ import business. I'm currently in the market for my third E39 M5.
