    • LAAS 2018 - Aston Martin's DBS Superleggera may be the world's best GT

      When it comes to the top of the GT (Grand Touring) game there is the Ferrari 812 Superfast and the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera. Both are stunningly beautiful, stunningly fast, and stunningly expensive.


      For example, the local Aston Martin dealer is asking $372k for a Superleggera they have in stock. Ouch.

      That amount of money does get you a 5.2 liter twin turbo V12 with 715 horsepower and 664 lb-ft of torque.

      It also buys a gorgeous design and the Superleggera nameplate which Aston Martin resurrected. This model is meant to represent serious performance with extensive use of carbon fiber to keep weight down in the 37XX pound range.

      We await test figures to show what this thing can really do but wow does the new Aston Martin design language translate well to the DBS Superleggera. The new Vantage is nowhere near as handsome in person.

        It looks good but... I would still argue that this whole new generation of Astons are not as pretty as their predecessors. Purely going by looks I would prefer the previous Vanquish.

        Strongly agree with this sentiment.

        These are not instant classics or as elegant with their styling.
