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.
