Aston Martin brings back the DBS
Aston Martin’s iconic DBS nameplate returns for upcoming flagship Super GT complete with Touring’s Superleggera mark to adorn the hood.
Aston Martin has announced the re-birth of an iconic name. The distinctive DBS Superleggera moniker will once again adorn the British marque’s flagship super GT.
First coined for the iconic 1967 William Towns’ designed-model, the DBS nameplate has been a key part of the brand’s heritage for over 50 years.
The DBS Superleggera completes the brand’s ambitions to replace each of its existing two-door sportscar models as part of its Second Century Plan.
Sitting at the pinnacle of Aston’s sportscar line-up, DBS Superleggera will feature the highest levels of performance, craftsmanship and design.
Along with the resurrection of the DBS nameplate, Touring’s famous mark – Superleggera – will once again adorn the bonnet of an Aston Martin.
A collaboration that helped pave the way to the DB4, 5 and 6 Mark 1, DBS will once again pay homage to the historic super lightweight construction technology of Touring.
The name also provides a hint as to what can be expected of this upcoming model.
