Aston Martin has finally unveiled its newest V12-powered flagship that combines the power and sportiness of a super car and the refinement and luxury of a GT – the new Aston Martin DBS Superleggera.
The new Aston Martin combines two names that have been considered memorable names. The name “DBS” is derived from an iconic nameplate that made its debut in 1967. The moniker “Superleggera,” on the other hand, is a tribute by Aston Martin to the groundbreaking innovative lightweight construction methods initiated by renowned Italian coachbuilder, Touring.
Thus, the new Aston Martin DBS Superleggera brings the best of two worlds into one Super GT. It boasts of remarkable power and dynamics to deliver an exhilarating driving experience. At the same time, the new DBS Superleggera delivers a high level of craftsmanship as complemented by an opportunity for customers to personalize the Super GT according to their tastes and preferences.
The new Aston Martin DBS Superleggera is underpinned by an evolved version of the latest generation lightweight bonded aluminum chassis that made its debut on the DB11. This chassis employs forged double wishbones on the front and a multi-link system at the rear, as complemented by the latest generation adaptive damping
As standard, the new DBS Superleggera features tire pressure monitoring system, keyless entry, as well as a 360-degree camera with Parking Distance Display and Park Assist. Aside from an integrated satellite navigation system and Wi-Fi hub, the new DBS Superleggera employs an audio system with DAB plus Bluetooth audio as well as phone streaming, iPod, iPhone and USB playback.
Also standard on the DBS Superleggera are aromatic leather and Alcantara upholstery, Sports Plus performance seats and steering wheel. Two 21-inch alloy wheel designs are offered: ‘Y’ Spoke Forged Wheel (standard) and the Lightweight Twin Spoke Forged wheel, both shod with Pirelli tires
Aston Martin will commence US deliveries of the new DBS Superleggera in the fourth quarter of 2018, with a starting price of $304,995.
