Just a few days ago we told you that Aston Martin is going to bring back one of the most suggestive denominations in its history. The DBS will return to the offer of the prestigious British manufacturer after no car since 2012 has carried these acronyms, a combination that premiered for the first time in 1967.

Soon the Gaydon will use the DBS brand to show off their next creation, a great tourism that also will use the nickname Superleggera in a clear sample of where the shots of the call to be the successor of the current Vanquish will go and which is already He has hunted around the Nürburgring.

DBS Superleggera: a mythical name that returns to Aston Martin


Mark Reichman (creative director of Aston Martin) called this incipient creation "a declaration of intentions in which they have sought the limits" that will honor the 70 years since the launch of the first DBS.

The unit that has been sighted in the Green Hell seems quite close to a production model. Camouflaged in a simple matte black color, the DBS Superleggera shows a visually modernized line, less gentrified and more fierce, although respecting the trademark identity.

The lines are harder than in the DB11 but an intense aerodynamic work is maintained in which on this occasion a small rear spoiler integrated on the lid of the trunk stands out. Below we find four large escape routes that look really impressive and contrast with the only two used by the DB11.

The DBS Superleggera will start from the base used in the Aston Martin DB11 and radicalize its concept, using to move a motor derived from the 5.2 liter V12 biturbo instead of the 4.0 V8 twin-turbo Mercedes-AMG origin used in the Vantage. Predictably the power will go beyond the 700 HP taking into account that the DB11 offers 608 HP.
