Aston Martin DBS

The DBS was introduced in 2008 with a 5.9-liter V-12 engine that cranked out 510 horsepower. It was one of the most sought after Aston Martin models during its reign. Following the 2012 iteration, Aston Martin axed the model.

Replacing the Vanquish with a classic

Having redesigned the DB9, which changed its name to the DB11, and the Vantage, Aston Martin now introduced a replacement for the Vanquish S. Much like the DB9, the Vanquish name was retired and replaced by a badge that goes back to the late 1960s. Meet the DBS Superleggera, the company’s new flagship grand tourer.

Built on the underpinnings of the DB11, the DBS Superleggera is lighter and more powerful. Tipping the scales at 3,733 pounds, the DBS shed nearly 160 pounds compared to the DB11. The grand tourer is also more aggressive by design, almost touching supercar territory thanks to its low-slung stance and really low ground clearance. The new grand tourer also pays homage to the historic super lightweight construction technology of the famous Italian coachbuilder Superleggera, which penned the iconic DB4 and DB5.
