Cor blimey! The new Aston Martin DBS Superleggera!

It’s official, we want to be rich. This week, we’re driving the McLaren 720S and now, Aston Martin has introduced the most spectacular car to bear its namesake since forever.

The $304,995 usd supercar is powered by a bi-turbo, 5.2-liter V12 engine that produces 715 horsepower @ 6,500 rpm and a whopping 663 lb.-ft. of torque from 1,800-5,000 rpm. A new ZF 8-speed automatic transmission sends the power to the rear wheel and together, can rocket the Superleggera to 100 km/h in only 3.4 seconds.

Most of you probably know what Superleggera but just in case, it’s super-light in Italian. While the cars tips the scale at 3,733 lbs, it’s still nearly 270 lbs light than the last Vanquish, that it replaces.

The DBS Superleggera is stunning and aimed squarely at the likes of the Ferrari 812 Superfast. About the styling, the car is loaded with top-notch aero that produces a total of 397 pounds (180 kg) of downforce. Top speed is rated at 211 mph (338 km/h) so it should come in handy.
