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.
