Aston Martin Announce Rebirth of the DBS Superleggera
Aston Martin has announced the re-birth of an iconic name, the DBS Superleggera, which is set to be proudly worn once again by the British marque’s flagship Super GT.
First coined for the iconic 1967 William Towns’ designed-model, the DBS nameplate has been a key part of the brand’s heritage for over 50 years.
The DBS Superleggera completes the brand’s ambitions to replace each of its existing two-door sports car models as part of its Second Century Plan. Sitting at the pinnacle of the sports car line-up, DBS Superleggera will feature the highest levels of performance, craftmanship and design.
Along with the resurrection of the DBS nameplate, Touring’s famous mark – Superleggera - will once again adorn the bonnet of an Aston Martin.
A collaboration that helped pave the way to the DB4, 5 and 6 Mark 1, DBS will once again pay homage to the historic super lightweight construction technology of Touring.
Marek Reichman said, “When you hear the name DBS Superleggera, you know what it is. 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”.
Further details on Aston Martin’s highly-anticipated super GT will be revealed in the second quarter of 2018.
