After a lot of spy photos, Aston Martin has finally revealed its new Super GT flagship, the DBS Superleggera. Replacing the Vanquish S, the revived DBS is a car „dedicated to delivering an unforgettable driving experience and class-leading in-gear acceleration.”
Marking the return of both the DBS and Superleggera illustrious names, the vehicle is based on an evolution of the lightweight aluminum structure of the DB11, which uses forged double wishbones at the front and a sophisticated multi-link layout at the rear. As standard, it also comes with adaptive damping and a choice of three driving models, GT, Sport, and Sport Plus, controlling the powertrain.
Speaking of the engine, power comes from a 5.2-liter V12 biturbo engine, generating monstrous 715 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque, available between 1,800 and 5,000 rpm. The motor is mounted low and as far back in the chassis as theoretically possible for an optimized weight distribution and lower center of gravity.
