Aston Martin has unveiled its magnificent new Super GT flagship, the DBS Superleggera.
With DBS, Aston Martin is reviving an iconic nameplate that first appeared in 1967, while Superleggera pays homage to the innovative lightweight construction methods pioneered by Italian coachbuilder, Touring.
The sleek coupe will replace the carmaker’s esteemed Vanquish S and weighs 121kg fewer than the last Vanquish.
The new model also boasts a bi-turbo, 5.2-litre V12 engine that will be the basis for all forthcoming V12 models as well.
Chief Creative Officer Marek Reichman said: “When you hear the name DBS Superleggera, you know what it is. It’s the definitive Aston Martin Super GT. It’s an icon, a statement and this one will be no different. We’ve pushed the boundaries of performance and design to give this car a distinct character and ensure it’s worthy of the heritage and weight that this name carries”.
