The Aston Martin DBS Superleggera stands in a class of it’s own among other models. The DBS Superleggera is a super GT with a jaw-dropping design and performance to match that comes in both standard coupe and drop-top Volante edition. Aston Martin delivers on all fronts, most notably the heart of the driving machine, the phenomenal 5.2 liter V12 twin turbocharged engine. As the new Super GT flagship, The DBS Superleggera replaces the esteemed Aston Martin Vanquish S. That’s a tough act to follow, but one it was born to do. The DBS Superleggera was built for performance in mind, being able to achieve 0-62 in just 3.4 seconds and is paving the way for class-leading in-gear acceleration being able to achieve speeds of 50-100mph in fourth gear in a mere 4.2 seconds.With F1 inspired aerodynamic elements the DBS Superleggera generates an astounding 180kg of down-force making it a force to be reckoned with. With the detailed tuning of the V12 engine and a new exhaust strategy with active valves and quad tail pipes, this ensures the DBS Superleggera has a commanding and powerful sound character, especially in the more aggressive dynamic modes, while retaining a level of refinement that compliments its role as the consummate Super GT. Providing comfort and luxury with unparalleled power and torque, the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera opens the door for even further research and development.
The Aston Martin DBX breathes new life into the Aston Martin brand as a whole. This is the first ever SUV released by the Aston Martin brand, they knew they had to deliver with the DBX, and they sure did. The DBX is the culmination of an extensive development program that began with physical testing in Wales last year and virtual development stretching back all the way to 2015! The DBX signals a new era in Aston Martin’s pursuit to deliver exceptional performance, style and usability in a segment previously unexplored by the well established luxury manufacturer. Aston Martin Lagonda President & Group CEO, Dr. Andy Palmer had this to say about the new DBX model: “I can’t emphasize enough how incredibly exciting and significant DBX is for Aston Martin. Through its development alone, this beautiful SUV has already taken the company into new territories and in inspiring directions. DBX also marks a key moment in the delivery of the third and final phase of our Second Century Plan, not only representing the promised expansion of our portfolio but also signaling the start of production at Aston Martin’s second manufacturing plant. We have both delivered this model through our expertise, but also by garnering invaluable experience and knowledge from external counsel, including our Female Advisory Board. This is a real landmark for this great British brand and I promise that DBX will reward all who experience it in their everyday lives.”When it comes to performance the Aston Martin DBX delivers across the board. The DBX is powered by a new version of the well known 4-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine found in the DB11 and Vantage and features an impressive output that is carefully tuned to meet the specific needs of this model. While the turbocharged V8 cylinder is quite powerful, it also has new technology capable of deactivating to enhance fuel economy, but can also propel the DBX from 0 to 62mph in 4.5 seconds and on to a top speed of 181mph. With day to day driving focus in mind Aston Martin’s first ever full-size 5-seat model is not only exceptionally versatile in terms of the terrain that it can tackle, but it is also extremely adaptable to a wide variety of lifestyle needs and owners. The Aston Martin DBX sets the bar high for any other luxury brand looking to venture into the SUV market.
