Should I Buy an Aston Martin DBS Superleggera? | TEST DRIVE

Added on Nov 24, 2018

Supercar Test Drives


The new Aston Martin DBS Superleggera has arrived as their flagship super-GT! As a previous owner of an Aston Martin V12 grand tourer, in the form of the Vanquish, could the DBS Superleggera be one for me to add to the garage?

With a 5.2l TT V12, the DBS produces 725hp and 900nm of torque - numbers that are quite frankly absurd and perhaps not the most appropriate for the weather conditions on the day! Significant changes are made over the DB11 in terms of the visuals and mechanicals to handle this amount of power, and in terms of character it's quite clearly something different.

We kick off at Dunsfold Park with Lovecars, during a filming of videos for their channel, where I can quickly intro the car in the horrible weather before taking it out to explore the airfield. Next stop is onto the local countryside roads to experience what it's like on the road in the UK and discuss the topic more. Upon return to the home of Top Gear we can run through more of the details of the interior.
