Aston Martin DBS Superleggera is 007’s New Car

James Bond is back in action and with a new ride.

The all sexy and seductive Aston Martin DBS Superleggera has just been confirmed to become the newest 007 car, thanks to the most recent collaboration between Aston Martin and EON Productions.

This DBS Superleggera replaces the esteemed Vanquish S. With 725PS, 900Nm of torque, a top speed of 340km/h and blistering acceleration that dispatches 0-100km/h in just 3.4 seconds, the DBS Superleggera is the new icon dedicated to delivering an unforgettable driving experience and class-leading in-gear acceleration, with 80-160km/h achieved in fourth gear in a mere 4.2 seconds.

DBS Superleggera produces an epic performance with its 5.2-litre twin-turbo V12, tuned to produce tremendous power and immense torque for breathtaking response and extraordinary in-gear performance. This beautifully articulated machine is housed using immaculately sculpted carbon fibre body panels that characterises a muscular, highly individual styling.
