The British luxury car manufacturer marked the name's return on the grand tourer market with the DBS Superleggera in 2018. The new model represents a genteel, extremely stylish and sophisticated take on the fast-luxury coupe segment.
The DBS Superleggera is equipped with a 5.2-liter twin-turbocharged V12 engine paired with a new rear-mounted ZF 8-speed automatic transmission and develops 725 hp. The car can accelerate from 0 to 100 kph (0-62 mph) in 3.4 seconds and has a top speed of 340 kph. The driver can choose between three driving models: GT, Sport and Sport Plus.
Compared to the DB11, even though they share the same platform and basic engine, the DBS is a more muscular machine. It is 72 kg lighter than its predecessor, thanks to the carbon-fiber panels and driveshaft. The power is delivered to the wheels via a new high-torque version of ZF's 8-speed gearbox mounted in a transaxle fashion.
We've already settled that its exterior design is different and special, and the interior makes no exception, with premium quality materials and attention to details: a combination of Caithness leather and Alcantara leather with impeccable stitchings.
The car runs on 21-inch rims and Pirelli A7 P Zero tires that were specifically developed for this model. The Superleggera is equipped with keyless entry, tire pressure monitoring, a 360-degree camera, DAB radio an satellite navigation.
