For over half a century, the name DBS has meant just one thing: the ultimate production Aston Martin. A DBS is a distilled concentrate of all that has made Aston Martin not just one of the most coveted brands in the automotive sphere, but in all fields of endeavour, right around the world.
Now the new DBS Superleggera has arrived. Its beauty leaves no room for doubt. Its power cannot be reasoned with.
Unquestionably, DBS Superleggera sits at the pinnacle of the Aston Martin production range. It is both a shining light expressing the most beautiful automotive art and, at the same time, a dark and menacing shadow of brutal, unequivocal strength. It is this fine blend of seemingly opposing traits that makes the DBS Superleggera the absolute Aston Martin.
Aggressive, yet beautiful. Super lightweight, yet powerfully strong. A commanding presence, yet lavishly finished.
The DBS Superleggera is dominated by a breath-taking hexagonal grille, combining a sense of unbounded strength with the most natural beauty. This sets the visual agenda for the entire car while simultaneously feeding the insatiable appetite for oxygen of the mighty 715bhp engine.
Convention says form and function are opposing interests. The DBS Superleggera proves otherwise. The shape is unmistakably Aston Martin, but stronger, broader and more muscular than ever, not at a stylists whim but to cool and control the most powerful production Aston Martin ever.
Typically, as a car gets faster, it requires more cooling, larger brakes and stronger suspension, which inevitably results in increased weight. The DBS Superleggera begs to differ. Naturally it has been upgraded in all areas required to handle its phenomenal performance, but not by merely adding more of the same, instead using the finest, strongest lightweight materials.
Power without control is power that is squandered, which is why the DBS Superleggera is a master at making the most of the vast resources the V12 places at its disposal.
It starts with a chassis of enormous rigidity and continues with a classic double wishbone front suspension, a geometrically optimal multilink rear axle and an even more stable stance thanks to a track that is 10mm wider than the DB11 at the front and 20mm wider at the rear.
Once you are inside the DB11 you will discoverthe ultimate in comfort and convenience. The result of craftmanship and sumptuous natural materials, the highest levels of craftsmanship and state-of-the-art climate control and infotainment technology bring an overall excellent experience. With large reserves of power, delivered as the revs climb, with a rich and potent howl the DB11 is effortlessly potent. The interior can be perfectly in-tune with your unique style, thanks to an inspiring palette of colours and a vast array of detailing options.
DBS has long signified the utmost in elegance and speed, comfort and performance. The new DBS Superleggera is a meticulously handcrafted Grand Tourer with beauty and performance in equal measure. No fraction is compromised.
The DBS Superleggera will leave you in awe. Its beauty is absolute.
