Aston Martin reintroduces DBS Superleggera
August 20,2018: Luxury automobile company Aston Martin, has reintroduced the DBS Superleggera, reviving an iconic nameplate that first appeared in 1967, while Touring’s famous mark – Superleggera – will once again adorn the bonnet of an Aston Martin, which pays homage to the historic super lightweight construction technology of the famous Italian coachbuilder.
A look that’s perfectly matched by epic performance courtesy of Aston Martin’s 5.2-litre twin-turbo V12, it is tuned to produce tremendous power and immense torque for breath-taking response and extraordinary in-gear performance. Using immaculately sculpted carbon fibre body panels, this latest model is blessed with muscular, highly individual styling.
DBS Superleggera has a commanding and powerful sound character, particularly in the more aggressive dynamic modes. It has the capability of a maximum speed of 211mph. While being resolutely modern in design and engineering, DBS Superleggera expresses itself with an explicit design language. One that combines compelling curves with advanced aerodynamics for a sleek shape that both cheats the wind and clamps the car to the road. Set low and and as far back in the chassis as possible to optimise the centre-of-gravity and weight distribution, this high-performance engine develops 725PS at 6500rpm and 900Nm from 1800-5000rpm.
Both the powertrain and chassis have a choice of three dynamic modes – GT, Sport and Sport Plus - which can be selected by the driver to intensify or relax DBS Superleggera’s responses according to the needs of the driver.
DBS Superleggera features a high level of craftsmanship with extensive scope for personalisation via a generous choice of options. Supple, aromatic leather and Alcantara upholstery comes as standard, as do the Sports Plus performance seats and steering wheel. There is also a choice of striking Designer Specifications, with specially chosen colour and trim combinations selected by the Aston Martin Design Team to accentuate certain aspects of DBS Superleggera’s character.
Priced at INR 5,30,00,000 in India, deliveries of DBS Superleggera are scheduled to begin in Q3 2018.
