The DBS Superleggera utilizes the DB11 AMR platform, with lighter chassis, material upgrades and 715 horsepower . The AMR acronym stands for Aston Martin Racing, which represents Aston’s desire to differentiate its V-8 and V-12 models. The DBS Aston Martin dates back to the 1960’s, and Superleggera is a term associated with Italian supercars. Leggera is Italian for “light, so adding the word “Super” before it suggests a significant reduction in mass.
A menacingly attractive automobile, the 2019 Aston Martin DBS Superleggera is broader and more muscular than its predecessors, with a design that is distinctly Aston Martin.

The hexagonal grille of the 2019 DBS Superleggera dominates the aggressive appearance of this Aston Martin. To say it’s just a bit raw and edgy is perhaps an understatement.

The long, sweeping hood line incorporate scoops to assist in this endeavor. Beautiful and yet aggressive, commanding while lightweight. This is automotive art.
