Breathed-on & dressed-down DB11?
They better not botch this up, especially the styling, ‘cause it’s got huge shoes to fill. The last car carrying the ‘DBS’ moniker managed to become my favourite car of all time, and cemented AM’s place as the manufacturer of the most beautiful cars ever in my heart. And it was competing against the likes of the 458 Italia and LFA.
Looking forward to how it’ll look like.
Will the Superleggera be superleggera though? If it's a 1700 kg+ car it's a bit of a joke really.
Technically 'Superleggera' is a construction method which results in or resulted in cars that were lighter than cars produced with other methods. It's not really used any more as it's it's old 40's/50's tech. I imagine the DBS will be a touch lighter then the regular DB11, but as a token gesture towards using that badge.
OK, so more of a marketing stunt than a joke then.
As there seems to be no involvement from Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera and I assume they're not actually using the Superleggera method I think I can justifiably hold their feet to the flame a little bit by using the literal translation of the word superleggera - super light.
A V12 DB11 weighs around 1,900kg... but doesn't 'feel' it behind the wheel.
I doubt this is going to be a GT3 competitor... I reckon c.50kg lighter for the DBS SL
The V12 doesn't care about your human feelings!
Instead of Superleggera they should have called it Fatboyslim.
They already have the Vantage GTE anyway.
Concept car condom; a new direction in vague, hype-generating partial reveals.
I was thinking more of a hard nipple in a latex catsuit.
I see lips and teeth (with braces) from someone making a duckface.
Through a latex gimp mask, right @Eunos_Cosmo?
You're damn right.
Ok, seriously, that's gross. No Michael Jackson pics please.
.... and £10,000 more expensive, making the DBS a GT3 competitor, money wise.
Superleggera; an Italian word/name/description on a British car doesn't seem right. Right?
It goes back to the fifties and sixties when Aston Martin cooperated closely with Carrozzeria Touring, an Italian coachbuilder, on the DB4 and DB5.
Just **** yeah.
They should release it just like that, looks absolutely vicious. Could be the next batmobile.
GTS needs that like the old GTR Black Mask.
So it looks like a DB11 with added bits here and there and a bigger grille. There goes my hopes of it looking very different.
In the uk at least,the Aston is on an entirely different price level. Gt3 is c.£140k, my brother in laws DB11 was >£180k.
This will be £200ish.
