Aston Martin DB12 is all about the experience


CDN speaks to Aston Martin’s director of design, Miles Nurnberger, about the new DB12

Aston Martin has been going through a design revolution in recent years, most recently with the new Vantage. It all really started with the DB11 though and this year the British automaker celebrates 75 years of its DB models, named after company founder David Brown. The DB5 is probably the most famous along the way but now there is a new one, the DB12, and the biggest talking point is the interior which features the most significant change for decades.

After a brief stint at Dacia, Miles Nurnberger returned to Aston Martin as design director and Car Design News chatted to him at the launch of the DB12 in Monaco. He explained that it was essentially finished before he left for Dacia and when he returned, he simply had to sign off the finished product.
