Aston Martin hasn’t touched the DBS nameplate for a couple of years now. Instead, we’ve been treated with cars like the new DB11, Vantage and even the Valkyrie hypercar. But that will all change as the English automaker has announced their upcoming DBS Superleggera model.
The DBS Superleggera is meant to ” brand’s ambitions to replace each of its existing two-door sportscar models as part of its Second Century Plan,” according to Aston Martin. In terms of hierarchy, this new model will sit at the top of their lineup and will feature the highest levels of performance.
“When you hear the name DBS Superleggera, you know what it is,” says Marek Reichman, Chief Creative Officer and studio head at Aston Martin. “It’s the definitive Aston Martin Super GT. It’s an icon, a statement and this one will be no different. We’ve pushed the boundaries of performance and design to give this car a distinct character and ensure it’s worthy of the heritage and weight that this name carries.”
The new Aston Martin DBS Superleggera will be unveiled in Q2 of 2018.
