What you’re looking at is the highly-anticipated 2019 Aston Martin DBS Superleggera, surfaced ahead of its imminent online debut.
This image, was taken during a preview of the vehicle in Asia and follows on from a similar leak a couple of weeks ago. The image provides us with an unimpeded view of the hardcore DB11’s front fascia and sides.
The front of the DBS Superleggera is dominated by a massive, blacked-out grille. Just below the grille, you’ll notice a gloss carbon fiber splitter which seamlessly flows across the front and connects to a pair of large air intakes on either side of the bumper. Elsewhere, the DBS Superleggera receives a bespoke hood and new headlights.
As for the sides, they have been outfitted with extended sills and aggressive air extractors behind each front wheel arch. The wing mirrors are also painted gloss black to contrast the matte finish across most of the supercar’s exterior.
Inside, the Superleggera will adopt a selection of carbon fiber accents and use a rotary controller for the infotainment system borrowed from the Mercedes parts bin.
Our eagle-eyed spy photographers have snapped the DBS Superleggera testing on a number of occasions and inform us that the vehicle’s twin-turbo 5.2-liter V12 engine will produce roughly 700 HP. If true, that would give the car a significant power advantage over the 630 HP DB11 AMR and push it towards the 800 HP Ferrari 812 Superfast, the only other front-engined, rear-wheel drive luxury super GT in the market.
We expect to see the DBS Superleggera unveiled within the next month, and at some point it will be joined by an open-top Volante version.
