Expected to be revealed in the coming weeks, pictures of the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera and details have found there way online before an official announcement, and we’re in love.
Set to replace the mighty Vanquish, the new Aston Martin DBS Superleggera proudly wears distinct bodywork with subtle references to current Aston Martin models complete with smooth lines and an enlarged front grille.
Comprised almost entirely from carbon fibre, overall weight has been cut down by an estimated 72 kgs for a total of around 1,700 kgs.
According to sources, the suspension is said to sit lower with active dampers, larger carbon-ceramic brakes, and more; all of which contribute to vehicles performance.
Underneath the bonnet is said to be a 5.2-litre twin-turbo V12 petrol engine producing 715 horsepower and 900 Nm of torque. Rear-wheel drive is the norm with power being channelled to the rear axle via a slightly tuned eight-speed automatic gearbox borrowed from the DB11.
Furthermore, select outlets are claiming the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera launches from standstill to 100 km/h in 3.5 seconds.
As we mentioned at the beginning, Aston Martin has yet to say anything about the DBS Superleggera themselves, but we do expect an official announcement in the coming weeks.
