Aston Martin DBS Superleggera 2018 - For the most car lovers, the DBS name should already be an institution. It has been part of the Aston Martin brand for almost five decades, the last time in the top-end variant of the DB9 range, the Aston Martin DBS with V12 engine that was sold between 2007 and 2012.
Now, the manufacturer of Gaydon has just announced that it will recover this DBS name for its next big tourism, which will be at the same time the flagship of the English house. In addition, this name will be accompanied by another very special brand, Superleggera.
Of the future Aston Martin DBS Superleggera we do not know anything beyond the own name, since for now all the information that the British manufacturer has offered is a short video as a teaser in which the front of the model can be intuited.
What we can do an idea is what will offer this model if we attend to what its name suggests. It will have to be light, or at least resort to solutions to get rid of a few kilos of it, and it will also be a great big tourism, which also has much more to equip the V12 engine of the house than the 4.0 liters V8 twin turbo Mercedes-Benz AMG
What we do know is that the DBS nomenclature has been used in Aston Martin since 1967, the year in which the first DBS of the house was presented. It was a model given to happen to the DB6 but that coexisted with it for some years and was manufactured until 1972. It hid a 4.0-liter six-cylinder engine in line, with a power of about 284 hp.
For its part, Superleggera is an Italian term meaning superlight (obviously) and that was also used by Gaydon in models such as DB4, DB5, DB6 or DBS itself. Basically, it was named the Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera light body model, which turned out to be the lightest in the range.
"When you hear the name of DBS Superleggera, you know what it is, it's the ultimate Aston Martin super GT, it's an icon, a statement of intent, and it will not be different. give this car a character that will ensure you deserve the tradition and the importance of carrying that name, "concludes Mark Reichman, creative manager of Aston Martin.
