2019 ASTON MARTIN DBS Superleggera
Brutal, elegant and refined – that’s how we would describe the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera. The shape is unmistakably Aston Martin, but stronger, broader and more muscular than ever, not at a stylist’s whim but to cool and control the most powerful production Aston Martin ever. ‘’Aggressive, yet beautiful’’ is how Aston Martin describes its flagship car.
The DBS Superleggera is based on the DB11 V12, but with modifications that set it apart from the DB11 line. The car was given the iconic DBS badge that was also used by the original DBS and the DB9-based DBS V12.
The front of the car features a new front bumper with a large central grille for improved engine cooling and two side air vents to cool the brakes. Two vents on the bonnet support the engine cooling process. The 5.2-litre twin-turbocharged V12 engine has been upgraded to produce 725 hp at 6,500 rpm and 900 Nm of torque from 1,800-5,000 rpm. To optimise the centre of gravity and weight distribution, the V12 engine is positioned as low and as far down in the chassis as possible.
ABOUT THIS SPECIFIC EXAMPLE
This particular DBS Superleggera is one of the finest we have ever seen. The Magnetic Silver exterior colour is a fantastic combination with the contrasting Copper Tan Leather interior. The gentleman who bought this DBS new tried to add a bit of sportiness to the classy car. Almost all carbon fibre options are ticked. Think of air intakes on the bonnet, front splitter and rear diffuser. Even the roof is completely made of carbon fibre. The 21-inch wheels give the car that extra bit of sportiness and it completes the car.
It is clear to see that the car has always been handled very well. From the outside, the car is completely damage free. There are no traces of use to be found and the bonnet and front bumper contain no traces of stone chippings. What is also very nice is that the car has a complete ceramic coating. This makes any dirt fall off immediately at the slightest touch of water. The 21-inch wheels are, of course, very sensitive to, for example, kerbstones, but there is no damage to the rims either.
The interior of the Aston is probably the most impressive part of the car. It is made with the highest quality materials.
If you enter the car it is an oase of very soft (handbag quality) leather and alcantara. The way the interior is composed gives the driver the feeling of being in both a leather shop and a super sports car. The materials are of the highest quality and the diamond stitching adds to the luxury of the car. The interior shows minimal traces of use.
Finally, of course, the driving experience. Imagine yourself in pure luxury with the sound of a roaring V12 behind you. This car is capable of accelerating from 0 to 100 in 3.4 seconds, but when you want to drive it quietly, this is the perfect grand tourer. Listen to your favourite music in the highest quality with Bang & Olufsen surround sound. We think there is no better car for a road trip to the south of Europe.
