Aston Martin fans received a treat Tuesday in the form of a leaked image of the DB11 ahead of the vehicle's planned debut at the Geneva Motor Show.

Twitter user @Rudybenjamin13 posted the photo, which is believed to have been taken at a pre-launch event hosted for potential customers, according to The Telegraph. The DB11, shown in the image below, will serve as a successor to the DB9.

The new sports car bears a similar appearance to that of the DB10, which was featured in the latest James Bond film 'Spectre' and will not be available for general sale, as only 10 models were made specifically for the film.

The only known feature of the DB11 so far is an all-new 5.2-liter twin-turbo V12 under the hood, which actually opens, Jalopnik reported. The engine is expected to produce close to 600 horsepower.

Previous reports have also suggested that the V12 will be joined by AMG-sourced V8s, Carscoops noted.

The DB11 is also expected to be built around Aston Martin's new platform and feature new architecture that will be used for future models, The Telegraph reported.

Fans won't have to wait too long for the rest of the DB11's details, as Aston Martin is set to officially reveal the sports car on March 1 at the Geneva Motor Show.
