2019 Aston Martin DBS Superlegerra

In Italian, “leggera” means “light.” Thus, Aston Martin’s latest car, the DBS Superleggera, the vehicle long-planned to replace the Vanquish, is made to be super-light, and from the looks of it, near super-sonic, too.

The Aston Martin DBS Superleggera was loosely based on its predecessor the DB9, but a few major tweaks will make the Superleggera cruise at an altogether different pace from any Aston Martin before it. Crafted totally from carbon-fiber, the car has shed 160 pounds of curb-weight, clocking in at just over 3,700 lbs. That frame will be ferried by a 5.2-liter twin-turbo V12, which will produce an estimable 715 horsepower and 664 lb-ftof torque. Word from the Aston Martin pipeline is that the Superleggera’s 0-62 mph pace clocks in at a blistering 3.4 seconds, and does 0-100mph at 6.4 seconds. The DBS incorporates some of the best aspects of those who roared before it, like the DB11 – from which the Superlegerra gets its curlicue and Aeroblade – and the Formula 1 racers that inspired its double-diffuser, creating an incredible 180kg downforce, the most of any Aston Martin, in its illustrious history. This superior GT vehicle will certainly justify its name when it becomes street legal later this year, a date that fans of the glorious car brand eagerly await.
