London introduces the newest addition to the Aston Martin on the upcoming 26th of July. With the new DBS Supereleggera, Aston Martin revives its iconic first name since 1967.


The DBS Superleggera, one level above the Super GT, will replace other designs like the Vanquish S. With a body panel made of carbon, the DBS Superleggera looks muscular and stands on its own.

Its impressive exterior matches its strength – with an engine of 5.2 liter twin-turbo V12, which is placed as rear as possible to optimize the car’s center of gravity and weight distribution. It is powered with 715HP at 6500rpm, along with a torque of 900Nm from 1800-5000 rpm with a maximum speed of 339 km/h.

With an acceleration of 0-100 km/h in just 3.4 seconds and 0-160 km/h in 6.4 seconds, the Superleggera is dedicated to give you an unforgettable ride.

The interior is elegantly crafted with diamond-knitted leather wrapping the seat and side dashboard. For those expecting for sports car look, this DBS may fulfill your expectation with contrasted red threads interweaving the fabric.

The Superleggera runs their energy to the back wheels through a new automatic ZF transmission. Accompanied by features like a mechanical limited-slip differential and torque vectoring, this car can produce a super response like the GT. There’s no need of weeping over the retirement of the sporty Vanquish because this Superleggera is a serious game.
