ASTON MARTIN DBS SUPERLEGGERA
The revival of an icon was created not by car stylists, but design engineers... Typically, as a car gets faster, it requires more cooling, larger brakes and stronger suspension, which inevitably results in increased weight. The DBS Superleggera begs to differ. Naturally it has been upgraded in all areas required to handle its phenomenal performance, but not by merely adding more of the same, instead using the finest, strongest lightweight materials.
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.
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 715hp 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.
DBS has long signified the utmost in elegance and speed, comfort and performance. The new DBS Superleggera is a meticulously handcrafted Grand Tourer with beauty and performance in equal measure. No fraction is compromised. 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. Torque is as difficult to explain as it is easy to experience: it is the power of the punch you feel when a car accelerates, and the DBS has 900Nm of it, more than any Aston Martin road car in our history. Thanks to the outstanding flexibility of our hand-built, twin-turbo 5.2-litre V12 engine, there’s no need to wait: all of it is available from just 1800rpm.
