Aston Martin Honors The Supersonic Concorde Jet With A 715HP Sport Coupe

A whopping 50 years ago, the Concorde supersonic airliner etched its name into the annals of history as the first of its kind to take to the skies. The aircraft — a joint project taken on by British and French scientists, engineers, and designers — was designed to afford passengers their first glimpse of post-sonic flight; and now, Aston Martin has dedicated its most recent, limited-edition DBS Superleggera to the remembrance of that late platform.

The Aston Martin DBS Superleggera “Concorde Edition” arrives as a beautifully-imagined rendition of the brand’s prolific supercar, albeit, with a few of the supersonic aircraft’s subtle characteristics. The interior, and exterior, of the DBS are dressed in the recognizable British Airways livery, while a carbon-fiber roof, diffuser, and strake are adorned with their own respective Concorde silhouette and enamel fill. But the car’s interior is truly special. Alongside its Alcantara headliner, milled seatbelt badges, specialized Mach Meteor embroidery, a pair of paddle shifters constructed from the Concorde’s titanium compressor blades make their debut, presenting yet another attractive inclusion to the 715-horsepower, 5.2-liter twin-turbocharged V12 Superleggera. Only 10 specialized platforms are slated for production, so head over to Aston Martin’s website for more information and possible inquiry.
