The Aston Martin DBS Supeleggera lineup is growing as the company has taken the wraps off the limited edition DBS 59.
Created by Aston Martin’s Q division, the DBS 59 features an assortment of styling cues which recall the iconic race car. Chief among them is a racing green paint job that is contrasted by gloss carbon fiber trim. The car also has a number of bronze accents on the grille, spoiler and wheels. Speaking of the latter, they are backed up by a high-performance braking system with bronze calipers.
Moving into the cabin, drivers will find a mix of obsidian black and chestnut tan leather as well as with “fabric inspired by the DBR1 seat material.” Elsewhere, there’s racing green accents, bronze flourishes and embroidered backrests with the “DBS 59” logo.
The special touches don’t end there has Q by Aston Martin has created bespoke helmet pods for the rear compartment. They are wrapped in saddle leather and are designed to hold an assortment of accessories that come with the car. These include period blue racing overalls, vintage style racing gloves and a replica 1959 racing helmet.
Buyers will also receive a two-piece luggage set which matches the interior. Last but not least, there’s a racing green car cover which has a white roundel with the car’s number.
Like the standard DBS Supeleggera, the DBS 59 has a 5.2-liter V12 engine that produces 715 hp (533 kW / 725 PS) and 663 lb-ft (900 Nm) of torque. It is connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission which enables the coupe to accelerate from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 3.4 seconds before hitting a top speed of 211 mph (339 km/h).
The DBS 59 will be available exclusively from Aston Martin Cambridge and the dealership is now taking orders.
