PostHeaderIcon Aston Martin Isn’t Done With the DBS Superleggera

If you’re not done drooling over the raunchy Aston Martin DBS Superleggera, you might need to have some paper napkins nearby because Aston Martin is reportedly looking into developing a more extreme version of the 715-horsepower DBS Superleggera. Nothing is set in stone yet, but the belief is that the AMR DBS Superleggera — that’s the name it’s tipped to go by — will be released sometime in late 2019 or early 2020 with a bump in price compared to its “tamer” DBS Superleggera counterpart.

PostHeaderIcon Full Walkaround of the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera – Video

The Aston Martin DBS Superleggera is, on paper, the British automaker’s flagship grand tourer. More important than that, though, is how the new model fits in Aston Martin’s hierarchy. The DBS Superleggera, ladies and gentlemen, is the long-awaited replacement for the Vanquish S. It also happens to be lighter and more powerful than the DB11, having shaved almost 160 pounds compared to the DB11, all while packing 715 horsepower and 663 pound-feet of torque.

If you haven’t seen the DBS Superleggera, then you’re in for a treat. Noted auto blogger Shmee150 was able to see the newest Aston at its unveiling. Not only was he able to take a good look at the DBS Superleggera, he also spent a good amount of time going through all the stylistic nuances that make this model one of the finest creations Aston Martin has come up with in recent memory. The DBS Superleggera’s design almost touches supercar levels. Sure, there are still hints of Aston’s trademark styling, but the low-slung stance and low ground clearance of the DBS Superleggera give it a more performance-oriented aura, the likes of which we haven’t seen from Aston Martin in quite some time. Other design hints like the side louvers and the entire rear section also enhance its supercar aura.

The interior is similar to the DB11, but Aston Martin found ways to raise the stakes in the cabin of the DBS Superleggera. The dark chrome bezels on the center console are one example of the increased attention to luxury design. It’s the same thing with the chopped carbon fiber on the door trim. You rarely see that kind of treatment on luxury models like Bentley and Rolls-Royce. Seeing it on an Aston Martin is definitely a welcome and pleasant addition.

The Aston Martin DBS Superleggera is a design achievement for the British automaker. Calling it “stunning” doesn’t do justice to how it looks. But more than that, the new range-topping GT also packs a 5.2-liter V-12 engine that Aston Martin debuted in the DB11, albeit revised to accommodate a more powerful setup amounting to 715 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque. Do the math, and that’s an extra 115 horsepower and 148 pound-feet of torque more than what you can get out of the DB11.

Aston Martin isn’t messing around with the DBS Superleggera. It promised a worthy successor to the Vanquish S, and it more than delivered. Now, all that’s left is to see how the automaker’s new GT model stacks up against the competition. Something tells me that it’s going to more than hold its own.

PostHeaderIcon The Aston Martin DBS Superleggera vs the Ferrari 812 Superfast vs the Bentley Continental GT

It is a well-known fact at this point that the latest Aston Martin DBS Superleggera will go after the Ferrari 812 Superfast. Even Aston Martin officials implied this. However, I am fairly certain that in terms of poise, speed, technology, and price, the Bentley Continental GT may be thrown in the same ring in an endless fight for prestige among super luxury GTs. Sure, the coupe from Crewe isn’t as hardcore as the machines from Gaydon and Maranello, but the Continental GT will gain even more spirited versions in the future. Some of them will definitely take aim at the buyers of the DBS or the 812. The Supersports, I am looking at you.

For now, let’s see how the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera, the Ferrari 812 Superfast, and the Bentley Continental GT stack up against one another.

PostHeaderIcon Mid-Year Review: The 6 Most Important Cars of 2018

Apart from really important SUV debuts, the first six months of 2018 saw the introduction of some astonishing cars as well. We had it all, from electric supercars to coupe-like performance sedans and standard, but revolutionary sedans.

This year is seeing a smart shift in car development thinking. Obviously, companies have to reinvent their business model and offer the world something unique. This led to the introduction of the new BMW 8 Series Coupe, the fantastic Volvo S60 which you don’t have to buy but subscribe to it as you do with Netflix, and the super fast luxury GT that’s as mad as the 812 Superfast – the DBS Superleggera. Then there is the Rimac C_Two – a car that basically showcases the growth of a young car company. Thanks to technology wonders, we can basically watch the company development live. And, the Rimac C_Two was their Rumble in the Jungle moment. These are this year’s six most thrilling debuts so far.

PostHeaderIcon Wallpaper of the Day: 2019 Aston Martin DBS Superleggera

Aston Martin’s new flagship tourer is finally here, and it brings with it two iconic names blended together and plenty of power to make models like the Ferrari 812 Superfast tremble with fear. To make the new Superleggera what it is, Aston Martin did some serious work to the underpinnings that were borrowed from the DB11. In essence, the automaker managed to shed a total of 160 pounds and threw in a more aggressive design that makes it worthy of flagship status. Powering the beast is Aston’s familiar 5.2-liter V-12, but it’s tuned to deliver a gut-wrenching 715 horsepower and 663 pound-feet of torque – enough to push this beaut up to 50 mph in 3.4 seconds and all the way to a top speed of 211 mph.

All of this in mind, we saw it only fitting to make the new DBS Superleggera our wallpaper of the day here at TopSpeed and decided to share our favorite wallpaper selections with you. Our favorite is showcased below, but there’s plenty more in the gallery just a little lower. Go ahead – spruce up your desktop a little bit. You deserve it.

PostHeaderIcon Comparison: 2019 Aston Martin DBS Superleggera vs. Aston Martin DB11

Aston’s latest addition to the world of high-end speed is the DBS Superleggera, a V-12-powered range-topping super GT flagship. This thing is one big, bad monster machine, but peel back the sultry body pieces, and you’ll find the Aston Martin DB11, which provides both the underpinnings and many of the mechanical bits. So then, how do they compare?

PostHeaderIcon 5 Tech Features That Would make the Aston Martin DBS Superlegerra a Supercar in Any Dictionary

Appearing to the delight of the entire world, the latest Aston Martin DBS Superleggera has been almost unanimously declared the best iteration of Aston Martin’s new design language. Yet, you are not here to read about the sexy shapes and curves of the latest British super GT.

“The DBS Superleggera not only marks the return of a great Aston Martin name, but signals our return to the very pinnacle of the Super GT sector,” Andy Palmer, Aston Martin’s CEO, comments. “Handsome beyond measure, its lightweight carbon composite and aluminum body is sculpted into a shape with tremendous presence and charisma.”

Learn about five most important features of the new Aston Martin DBS Superleggera which make it one of the most advanced and most thrilling Super GTs in the world. As the word supercar lost its true meaning all the way back when people started calling the GT-R a supercar, I will go out on a limb and say it – I think that the DBS Superleggera is closer to being a supercar than any other sports cars ever was.

PostHeaderIcon Which Cars Could Possibly Compare with the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera?

First of all, you have to bear in mind that all the cars in the so-called super luxury GT class have somewhat unique characteristics. They aren’t as segmentized as, say, compact hatchbacks, or midsize sedans. That being said, there is no direct competitor to either one of them, but they are all competing with each other on one level or another. The Aston Martin Superleggera entered the segment as a sexy beast poised to take on Ferrari. It is a hard-core machine, but not without its luxury merit. Considering its fighting nature, laced with lush luxury and
Aston Martin delight, the DBS Superleggera competes within both segments – the fast and the luxury. That is why it has to take on everything – from a Rolls-Royce to a Ferrari.

Some characteristics for this comparison had to be set, though. All cars have to have two doors, a V-12 engine under the hood, some exceptional performance figures, and they need to be handsomely priced.

PostHeaderIcon Love It or Leave It – The 2019 Aston Martin DBS Superleggera

Having seen the gorgeous designs and solid performance figures of the DB11 and the new-generation Vantage, we were extremely anxious to see what Aston Martin has in store for next-generation Vanquish. The flagship grand tourer was finally unveiled this month, and alongside everything that is new inside and out, it also gained a new badge. Say goodbye to the Vanquish (for the second time), and hello to the DBS Superleggera.

Revived after six years, the DBS nameplate replaces the Vanquish for the second time. But this time around, it’s joined by the “Superleggera” badge, which Aston Martin is using as a tribute to the Carrozzeria Touring, the design firm that helped pen the iconic DB4, DB5, and DB6. What do we think about this new design and the tech under the skin? Find out from the TopSpeed staff below.

PostHeaderIcon 5 Important Facts About the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera

Aston Martin just replaced the Vanquish S with the DBS Superleggera, and the new grand tourer is a stunning vehicle in terms of design and technology. It’s lighter, faster, and more powerful than its predecessor, while also incorporating a lot more technology and race-inspired features. The new two-door also marks the return of the “DBS” badge, and it’s the company’s first modern vehicle that pays tribute to Carrozzeria Touring, the design house that helped pen some of the most iconic Aston Martins. But more on this and other important facts about the DBS Superleggera in the article below.

PostHeaderIcon Leaked: The Aston Martin DBS Superleggera shows its stunning body at a Private event

Believe it or not, at this point the world has only one front-engined, rear-wheel drive luxury super GT. It is called the Ferrari 812 Superfast. This won’t be the case for much longer, though, as the Brits are on the verge of releasing something similarly mad and opulent – the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera. We have been hearing about it for quite some time now, but only found out about its official name in April. Now, the car has been spotted, photographed, and leaked online. During a private presentation behind closed doors somewhere in Asia, some eager Aston Martin enthusiast managed to snap a picture. It shows a full-fledged luxury GT that showcases some of the finer points of Aston Martin design cues. It’s biblical.

Having redesigned the DB9, which changed its name to the DB11, and the Vantage, Aston Martin now introduced a replacement for the Vanquish S. Much like the DB9, the Vanquish name was retired and replaced by a badge that goes back to the late 1960s. Meet the DBS Superleggera, the company’s new flagship grand tourer.

Built on the underpinnings of the DB11, the DBS Superleggera is lighter and more powerful. Tipping the scales at 3,733 pounds, the DBS shed nearly 160 pounds compared to the DB11. The grand tourer is also more aggressive by design, almost touching supercar territory thanks to its low-slung stance and really low ground clearance. The new grand tourer also pays homage to the historic super lightweight construction technology of the famous Italian coachbuilder Superleggera, which penned the iconic DB4 and DB5. Let’s find out what the new DBS Superleggera is all about in the review below.

PostHeaderIcon Barn-Found Aston Martin DBS Headed To Auction

The last original Aston Martin DBS to come off the production line in 1972 has been found in a barn England and will be auctioned by COYS in London, on March 10th. Discovered by Chris Routledge, the Managing Partner of the auction house, the DBS has been sitting in a barn in Surrey since 1980 and is in dire need of a thorough restoration. Although it will be sold in its current state, the vehicle is expected to fetch between £25,000 to £40,000, especially since it’s one of only 787 units built.

“This is the ultimate barn find and an important part of Aston Martin’s history. It has been sitting in a barn since 1980 and now needs to be brought back to its former glory. The windows are broken, the interior trim is missing and it’s rusty, but it’s all there and there has been huge interest from collectors around the world,” Routledge said in a statement.

Until it goes under the hammer, the car will be displayed by Aston Martin Mayfair at Aston Martin W-One, Brook House, 113 Park Lane, Mayfair, London. The auction takes place during the COYS “Spring Classics” auction at the Royal Horticultural Society.
