The new Aston Martin DBS Superleggera has arrived as their flagship super-GT! As a previous owner of an Aston Martin V12 grand tourer, in the form of the Vanquish, could the DBS Superleggera be one for me to add to the garage?

With a 5.2l TT V12, the DBS produces 725hp and 900nm of torque - numbers that are quite frankly absurd and perhaps not the most appropriate for the weather conditions on the day! Significant changes are made over the DB11 in terms of the visuals and mechanicals to handle this amount of power, and in terms of character it's quite clearly something different.

We kick off at Dunsfold Park with Lovecars, during a filming of videos for their channel, where I can quickly intro the car in the horrible weather before taking it out to explore the airfield. Next stop is onto the local countryside roads to experience what it's like on the road in the UK and discuss the topic more. Upon return to the home of Top Gear we can run through more of the details of the interior.

Thanks to Lovecars:

Thanks for watching, Tim

      I was a big fan of my Aston Martin Vanquish, so what about the new DBS Superleggera, should it have a spot in the garage? What about waiting for the Volante in future? Let's find out what it is like!

      Shmee150 if I didn’t buy my Urus in November I would definitely buy it. But I will do it before the summer. I drove in a db11 amr in Austria and it was amazing to!

      I think, for that type of car, a GT, I would look at the Jaguar F-Type SVR convertible instead. Sure, it won't have the performance, but for the price difference and what the car is really intended to be.

      Seriously speaking, don't. I mean, I know you are a huge fan of Aston Martin but the depreciate in value like crazy. But if it is emotion that you are looking for then go for it. But from investment perspective, it may or may not be a good move. Just saying.

      Hi! Shmee, I think this Aston is stunning to look at and it sounds superb, I would have one of these over a Ferrari any day. Another car to add to the shmee garage?. Darren

      The thing about this car is, you can compare it with the 812 superfast, but in that regard the Ferrari is better. You can also compare it with the new continental gt, but in that regard the Bentley is better

      Some trivia here. The DB that you see on Aston Martins stands for "David Brown" a manufacturer in the UK that made heavy equipment components and gearboxes. DB purchased Aston Martin, Lagonda and coachbuilder Tickford in the 1950s for a combined total of less than $100,000. They got into financial difficulty and in 1972 sold Aston Martin for a nominal $200. (not a typo, actually sold it for about $200). I did a bit of research on David Brown when my Father purchased a David Brown tractor recently and wanted to know more about it(he collects old tractors and equipment). David Brown, Ltd, is still in business in the UK.
