Let's take a first look and walkaround of the brand new Aston Martin DBS Superleggera! The ultimate super-GT is presented at the company's HQ in Gaydon, finished in Satin Xenon Grey paintwork. Formed on the basis of the DB11, but with 725hp and 900nm from the 5.2l Twin Turbo V12, the DBS Superleggera stands as a 'brute in a suit'. 

With a name that strikes a historical connection to the DB4, DB5 and DB6 designed with Corozzeria Touring from Italy, while simultaneously returning the DBS name to the flagship range, it ups the game substantially. The engine is reworked, as to is the 8 speed ZF gearbox to handle the huge amounts of torque available. 

Although it is 70kgs lighter than a DB11, it is still 1,693kg. However, the power is fed to the rear wheels and offers 0-60mph in 3.3 seconds and a top speed of 211mph (340km/h).
