The Aston Martin DBS Superleggera lineup is growing as the automaker has announced plans to introduce the Bijan Edition during Monterey Car Week.
Commissioned by the Beverly Hills based House of Bijan, the special edition was created in partnership with Q by Aston Martin.
The company is keeping details under wraps, but said the model will be available as a coupe and volante. Each will feature a bespoke Bijan Yellow exterior with a “subtle paisley pattern ghosted into the bonnet paint.” There will also be a handful of other “striking enhancements” including a carbon fiber rear spoiler with yellow Bijan branding.
Inside, drivers will find soft alligator leather and Bijan logos. Customers will also have the option of having their initials integrated into the veneers.
There’s no word on pricing, but the DBS Superleggera Bijan Edition will be able to order from the House of Bijan as well as Aston Martin dealers worldwide. It will become part of their “driveable art” collection which has previously included gaudy versions of the Bugatti Veyron and Rolls-Royce Phantom.
Besides the special edition, Aston Martin will stage the North American debuts of the DB4 GT Zagato Continuation and Valhalla hypercar. The latter is a mid-engined model which was created in collaboration with Adrian Newey and Red Bull Advanced Technologies.
It will become Aston Martin’s third mid-engine hypercar after the Valkyrie and Valkyrie AMR Pro. However, it will be more practical and road-friendly. Despite these concessions, the car will have a “high-efficiency, high-output turbocharged V6 petrol engine and [a] battery-electric hybrid system.” This could give the model a combined output of around 1,000 hp (746 kW / 1,014 PS).
Production will be limited to 500 units and the Valhalla will have a starring role in the latest installment of the James Bond movie franchise.
