Aston Martin DBS Superleggera: A Brute In A Suit

“A brute in a suit.” This is how Aston Martin Chief Designer Miles Nurnberger described the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera

DBS Superleggera

It’s the perfect description for what is touted as the ultimate production Aston Martin because underneath the car’s sophisticated exterior is a beast waiting to be unleashed.


The DBS Superleggera Takes Off Like a Rocket

The Aston Martin DBS Superleggera packs a lot of muscle. With a twin-turbocharged, 5.2-liter V-12 engine that translates to 715hp, it’s unquestionably a powerful automobile. This engine is similar to the one affixed in the DBS Superleggera’s cousin, the Aston Martin DB11. However, it’s able to extract as much as 115 extra horsepower. Its secret? The addition of a high-torque version of the ZF eight-speed gearbox that includes a software recalibration. This results into an automobile that takes off like a rocket.

Super Light Carbon Fiber Body


Another reason why the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera is able to outrun its contemporaries is because of its carbon fiber bodywork that allows it to be as light as possible. “Superleggera” means “super light” in Italian, after all. And because the DBS Superleggera is super light, it can go super fast—Aston Martin’s astonishing machine can go from 0 to 62 mph in just 3.4 seconds. This brute is no slouch when it comes to speed.



Luxury Awaits Inside


The Aston Martin DBS Superleggera is classified as a grand touring car, which means that you can expect an abundance of luxuries inside. Upon opening its doors, power-adjustable sports seats wrapped in top-quality leather will welcome you. The cabin allows several options for personalization, but the standard trim is more than enough to give you relaxing ride. The DBS Superleggera also boasts of an impressive array of entertainment features—including an 8-inch infotainment/navigation display and audio-streaming connectivity—that should keep you amused on the road even during periods of heavy traffic.



The Aston Martin DBS Superleggera oozes with power and luxury. It is truly a brute in a suit and the ultimate production Aston Martin. For more information on Aston Martin DBS Superleggera’s features, specs, pricing, and more, click here.
