The Ultimate Production Aston Martin
For over half a century, the name DBS has meant just one thing: the ultimate production Aston Martin. A DBS is a distilled concentrate of all that has made Aston Martin not just one of the most coveted brands in the automotive sphere, but in all fields of endeavour, right around the world. Now the new DBS Superleggera has arrived. Its beauty leaves no room for doubt. Its power cannot be reasoned with. Unquestionably, DBS Superleggera sits at the pinnacle of the Aston Martin production range. It is both a shining light expressing the most beautiful automotive art and, at the same time, a dark and menacing shadow of brutal, unequivocal strength. It is this fine blend of seemingly opposing traits that makes the DBS Superleggera the absolute Aston Martin.
Aggressive, yet beautiful. Super lightweight, yet powerfully strong. A commanding presence, yet lavishly finished. The DBS Superleggera Coupe and Volante offer the ultimate super GT experience. DBS has long signified the utmost in elegance and speed, comfort and performance. The DBS Superleggera Coupe and Volante are meticulously handcrafted with beauty and performance in equal measure. No fraction is compromised.
Intoxicating Form. Compelling Function.
Convention says form and function are opposing interests. The DBS Superleggera proves otherwise. The shape is unmistakably Aston Martin, but stronger, broader and more muscular than ever, not at a stylist’s whim but to cool and control the most powerful production Aston Martin ever. The DBS Superleggera is dominated by a breath-taking hexagonal grille, combining a sense of unbounded strength with the most natural beauty. This sets the visual agenda for the entire car while simultaneously feeding the insatiable appetite for oxygen of the mighty 715bhp engine. Where others stop, we start.
Settle into the sumptuous, leather upholstered interior of the DBS Superleggera and see how our high-performance seats support your body to perfection. In both the driver and passenger seat you are home before the journey has even commenced. The DBS Superleggera will leave you in awe. Its beauty is absolute. The 715bhp provided by the DBS Superleggera 5.2 V12 twin-turbo engine is a colossal figure by any standard. But that is just where its talent starts. When you drive the DBS Superleggera you get to savour something else even more phenomenal – its torque.
The DBS Superleggera is our most aerodynamically sophisticated production car ever. There’s genuine engineering purpose behind the splitters, side sills and Aeroblade II™ that goes far beyond their muscle-bound appearance.
Most notable is the new, fixed, carbon fibre Aeroblade II™. As turbulent air flows along the body side behind the C-Pillar it is controlled and redirected by Aeroblade II™, working in conjunction with the double diffuser which accelerates air beneath the car.
We all know luxury when we see it. It entices and excites; it draws us, spellbound, to its core. But true luxury, Aston Martin DBS Superleggera luxury, is simple to define and easy to see: it is freedom. Freedom to create an environment of your choosing, freedom to express yourself, freedom to have it your way.
The ultra-light carbon fibre clamshell bonnet would look as at home displayed in a sculpture gallery as it does adorning our most potent product ion model to date. But we never do anything just for show: here the carbon fibre cuts weight, lowers the centre of gravity and expels hot air through a set of beautifully sculpted bonnet vents.
Power without control is power that is squandered, which is why the DBS Superleggera is a master at making the most of the vast resources the V12 places at its disposal. It starts with a chassis of enormous rigidity and continues with a classic double wishbone front suspension, a geometrically optimal multilink rear axle and an even more stable stance thanks to a track that is 10mm wider than the DB11 at the front and 20mm wider at the rear. Of course, the massive Pirelli P Zero tyres are bespoke for the DBS Superleggera.
