Aston Martin DS Superleggera
If you have a need for speed then you’ll be pleased to hear that Aston Martin’s new flagship Super GT more than delivers. Acceleration powered by a 5.2 litre twin-turbo V12 engine is an astonishing 0-62mph in 3.4 seconds – aided in part by the full-carbon construction which makes it 72kg lighter than its sister DB11 V12 – with a top speed maxing out at 211mph. Avid Aston fans will also be pleased to see the return of the DBS nameplate, last seen in James Bond film Casino Royale, which has been combined with Touring’s famous Superleggera mark in homage to the construction technology pioneered by the Italian coachbuilder. And, if you needed any more convincing, it looks pretty great too. Prices start at £225,000 with first deliveries expected in autumn 2018.
