Is This The First Aston Martin DBS Superleggera Caught Out In The Open?

It’s only been about a month and a half since Aston Martin unveiled the 2019 DBS Superleggera, yet the car has already begun popping up in certain parts of the world.

This dark grey example was spotted in Kelberg, Germany, by Pieter04, and is probably part of the very first models delivered to their customers. Its price in Germany is 274,995 euros, and that’s without any optional extras.

The DBS Superleggera marks Aston Martin’s return to the super GT sector, as stated by the company’s CEO, Andy Palmer, during the car’s release. He went on to say that it’s “immaculately styled, obsessively engineered and outrageously potent,” which is hard to disagree with, especially looking at the numbers.

Doing the heavy lifting is a 5.2-liter twin turbo V12, putting down 725 PS (715 HP) and 900 Nm (663 lb-ft) of torque that is mated to a rear-mounted ZF eight-speed automatic transmission. In a straight line, it will hit 62 mph (100 km/h) in 3.4 seconds and 100 mph (161 km/h) in 6.4 seconds, while top speed is at 211 mph (339 km/h). These are proper supercar numbers.

As for its immaculate styling, as Palmer put it, examples such as this grey one do a solid job at enforcing such notions. If you look close you’ll see that it’s actually a dual-tone colorway, with a grey body and a black roof and wheels.

    That’s very sexy, but the DB11 is the best looking Aston there is. IMO

    • baofe

      DB11 looks so disproportionate. The DBS Superleggera is slightly better but the old DB9/DBS era was better imo.

  • Bash

    Looks good and up to date but tbh imo, it lacks the classic appeal.

  • Denzel

    I like it but like some others I wish it was more unique

    Why would a customer car in Germany have a United Kingdom number plate?

      Because you can drive from UK to Germany. And back!

  • dumblikeyou2

    I dunno. The whole rear end looks too similar to what Porsche is already doing.

  • Vassilis

    Nice. Good spec.

  • Big Black Duck

    Porsche want their rear end back

  • botornot387

    This car is a work of art, but all Aston’s have been lately. Designers keep up the good work!

    I like it.
    Consider how the V8 Vantage STILL looks good after a decade and a half.
    This will be the same…2 decades from now, it will still look relevant in the auto landscape.
