2019 Aston Martin DBS Superleggera
The DBS Aston Martin dates back to the 1960’s, and Superleggera is a term associated with Italian supercars. Leggera is Italian for “light, so adding the word “Super” before it suggests a significant reduction in mass. The DBS Superleggera is basically a DB11 AMR, with 715 horsepower, a lighter chassis and material upgrades. The AMR acromym stands for Aston Martin Racing, which represents Aston’s desire to differentiate its V-8 and V-12 models.
With a design that is distinctly Aston Martin, the 2019 Aston Martin DBS Superleggera is broader and more muscular than its predecessors. Aston Martin says the change is not one of mere style, but one of form and function, one made necessary to cool and control this menacingly attractive automobile. It is, after all, the most powerful production Aston Martin ever.
It Starts Upfront
Just a bit raw and edgy, to say the hexagonal grille of the 2019 DBS Superleggera dominates the aggressive appearance of this Aston Martin is perhaps an understatement. This is a car hungry for oxygen and Aston Martin designers and engineers deliver it through an oversized, bold grille to breath it in. Scoops on the long, sweeping hood line also assist in this endeavor. This is automotive art, at once beautiful and yet aggressive, commanding while lightweight.
Stronger suspensions, more powerful brakes and increased cooling usually mean more weight. This is the constant push-pull of performance vehicle design. Aston Martin resolves this on the DBS Superleggera by using only the finest, strongest lightweight materials, including a carbon fiber shell.
Every Bit as Fast as it Looks
The 2019 Aston Martin DBS Superleggera features the anticipated V-12, 5.2 liter, twin-turbo engine that produces a brow raising 715 hp. At about 1800 rpm, this engine generates 664 lb-ft of torque. With a top end of 211 miles per hour, the DBS Superleggera can go from zero to 62 mph in about 3.4 seconds and zero to 100 mph in 6.4 seconds. A smooth shifting 8-speed transmission compliments all this power providing exciting acceleration without the headbanging.
A Racing Interior, Technology Included
Luxury sport seating with leather inserts welcomes you into the interior of the DBS Superleggera, with race stitching adding to the cockpit atmosphere. You’ll also be welcomed to a range of new technology including a 360-degree camera, parking assist, navigation and Wi-Fi standard.
