ASTON MARTIN DBS Superleggera  2018 2022
2018 2022

The Superleggera nameplate first came to be in 1967.
The British luxury car manufacturer marked the name’s return on the grand tourer market with the DBS Superleggera in 2018. The new model represents a genteel, extremely stylish and sophisticated take on the fast-luxury coupe segment.

The DBS Superleggera is equipped with a 5.2-liter twin-turbocharged V12 engine paired with a new rear-mounted ZF 8-speed automatic transmission and develops 725 hp. The car can accelerate from 0 to 100 kph (0-62 mph) in 3.4 seconds and has a top speed of 340 kph. The driver can choose between three driving models: GT, Sport and Sport Plus.

Compared to the DB11, even though they share the same platform and basic engine, the DBS is a more muscular machine. It is 72 kg lighter than its predecessor, thanks to the carbon-fiber panels and driveshaft. The power is delivered to the wheels via a new high-torque version of ZF’s 8-speed gearbox mounted in a transaxle fashion.

We’ve already settled that its exterior design is different and special, and the interior makes no exception, with premium quality materials and attention to details: a combination of Caithness leather and Alcantara leather with impeccable stitchings.

The car runs on 21-inch rims and Pirelli A7 P Zero tires that were specifically developed for this model. The Superleggera is equipped with keyless entry, tire pressure monitoring, a 360-degree camera, DAB radio an satellite navigation.

2019 2022

In April 2019, Aston Martin showed the open-top version of its top-model, the DBS Superleggera.
In the tradition of the British Company, the cabriolet was named Volante.

It is strange that Aston Martin struggled to make a super-light (Superleggera) coupe, and then it added 150 kg (330 lbs) by chopping off the roof. The good thing about the added weight to the rear part of the car is that it balanced the car to a 50/50 weight distribution. The DBS still kept the David Brown letters in its name, to honor the former owner of the Aston Martin company.

The design was the same as the DBS coupe up to the A-pillars. What happened after that, it happened that the B- and C-pillars were gone and a sexy sleek open-top bodywork was exposed. In the rear, on the trunk-lid, there was a small spoiler. The Aston Martin engineers succeeded to lose only 3 kg (6.6 lbs) of downforce when compared to the coupe version.

Inside, there was a GT design for the interior. Even if the car was fitted with a 2+2 seating, the rear ones were unusual especially if the wind-stopper was installed. But it did help with the taxes.

Under the hood, the DBS Superleggera Volante featured the same 5.2-liter twin-turbo V12 engine as the Superleggera coupe. It was mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission, mounted in the back of the car to help the balance.

Aston Martin promoted its new DBS model through James Bond’s 2006 Casino Royale and 2008 Quantum of Solace.
The new car was based on the DBR9 model - VH platform - but featured a lower and wider bodywork. It shared its wheelbase and roofline with the DB9 car and featured redesigned front bumper - with wider air scoops - and an integrated rear lip spoiler. The new DBS is expected to be quite a rare model among marque’s enthusiasts, as Aston Martin will only produce around 300 units of this high-performance sports car. The DBS V12 was pulled in 2012, replaced by the new Vanquish (Project AM310).

Aston Martin Lagonda Limited introduced the DBS in 1967 to produce a smoother transition from the DB6 model.
The new DBS featured a larger wheelbase & square grille and was available with a 4-seat coupe configuration, while powered by DB6’s 4.0L 6-cylinder inline engine delivering 286 hp and reaching a top speed of 141 mph. The DBS was also available with a Vantage option, featuring the same 4.0L unit with an improved output rating of 325 hp. Thanks to its impressive exterior design, the car was used in several Hollywood productions including James Bond’s ‘On Her Majesty’s Secret Service’ and ‘The Persuaders’ TV Series.
