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.
