Added in: Aston Martin

Aston Martin has revealed the new DBS Superleggera. The DBS Superleggera pays homage to the historic super lightweight construction technology of the famous Italian coachbuilder. The new DBS Superleggera is clad using sculpted carbon fibre body panels and packs muscular, highly individual styling. The muscular looks are matched by performance courtesy of Aston Martin’s 5.2-litre twin-turbo V12.

The DBS Superleggera replaces the Vanquish S as the British marque’s new Super GT flagship. The 5.2-litre twin-turbo V12 engine is tuned to deliver 725PS of power at 6500rpm and 900Nm of torque from 1800-5000rpm, which propel the Super GT to a claimed top speed of 211mph. The 0-62mph speed is achieved in just 3.4 seconds while 0-100mph takes 6.4 seconds. The in-gear acceleration of 50-100mph in fourth gear is achieved in a 4.2 seconds.

Power is transferred to the rear wheels via a new rear-mounted ZF eight-speed automatic transmission. The transmission features a mechanical limited-slip differential and torque vectoring. Detailed tuning of the V12 together with a new exhaust strategy with active valves and quad tail pipes ensures DBS Superleggera has a commanding and powerful sound character.

The DBS Superleggera benefits from the innovative aerodynamic concepts first seen on the DB11 and then takes things further with an F1-inspired double-diffuser. DBS Superleggera generates 180kg of downforce at VMAX: the highest figure ever for a series production Aston Martin. The new Super GT is built around the latest generation lightweight bonded aluminium structure which was first seen on the DB11, with forged double wishbones at the front and a multi-link system at the rear. Both the powertrain and chassis have a choice of three dynamic modes – GT, Sport and Sport Plus.
