Sports Car Becomes Lightweight
Aston Martin is reviving two familiar names – DBS and Superleggera – for a new flagship Super GT debuting this June. Before the debut, the automaker released a teaser image and a short video, in which the new model was presented.
Aston Martin does not provide specific details. But we know that the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera will replace the outbound Vanquish S, which made a maximum of 595 horsepower from its naturally aspirated V-12. The new DBS Superleggera is part of Aston Martin's Second Century Plan, which calls for the replacement of each of its two-door sports cars. Aston Martin debuted a new Vantage late last year, having previously introduced a new DB11 to replace the DB9.
The DBS name first appeared on the 1967 car designed by William Towns. Aston Martin brought the name back in 2007 and continued to use it for its flagship Grand Tourer until he introduced the Vanquish for the 2014 model year. In the meantime, Aston Martin also chooses Superleggera or Super Lightweight construction, which we saw on previous Aston Martins back to the DB4 and DB5.
The Big Product Offensive Continues For 2019 Aston Martin is preparing to launch a production version of its DBX crossover concept, allegedly named Varekai. In the years to come by 2023, the brand will also have a mid-engined sports car, Lagonda sedan and Lagonda SUV. The ultra-premium brand Lagonda will consist exclusively of battery electric offers.
Stay tuned as we learn more about Aston's upcoming DBS Superleggera.
