“Aviation” Aston Martin DBS Superleggera Concorde: in dreams of supersonic
“Aviation” Aston Martin DBS Superleggera Concorde, In honor of the 50th anniversary of the first flight of the Concorde supersonic passenger liner, Aston Martin decided to make the eponymous version of its DBS Superleggera coupe. The car with a unique finish will be released in an edition of 10 copies.
In 2003, humanity returned to the subsonic era of civilian air travel: on November 26, that is, exactly 16 years ago, the Concorde aircraft made its last flight, and its only competitor, the Soviet Tu-144, was removed from flights in the last century. Nevertheless, the memory of these grandiose machines is alive and is reflected in the world of art and fashion, which can be attributed to the activities of Aston Martin.
The limited-edition DBS Superleggera Concorde coupe is dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the British Airways company that operated the Concordes and is the fourth model in the so-called Wings Series to include the Vanquish S Red Arrows Edition, Vantage Blades Edition and V12 Vantage S Spitfire 80.
The exterior features of the Concorde version include a unique color in British Airways colors (even the emblem on the hood was decorated with tricolor), voluminous lining on the front wings in the form of a scale model of Concord, a carbon roof with a picture of Concord and a number of other small details.
The cabin is stylized as an airliner cabin. The images and logos of Concord are on the seats, door cards, door sills, and belt buckles. On the back of the driver’s sun visor, there is an application with the maximum speed in Mach and the flight altitude. Gearshift paddles are made of real Concorde titanium compressor blades.
Technically, the Concorde version is identical to the regular DBS Superleggera coupe – it is the flagship Aston Martin GT-line, which debuted last summer and represents the evolution of the DB11 model. Exterior body parts made of carbon fiber reduced the weight by 72 kg (up to 1693 kg). The engine is a 5.2-liter V12 with two tubings, delivering a maximum of 725 hp. and 900 Nm. Transmission – 8-speed “automatic” ZF. A self-locking differential is installed between the rear wheels. The vehicle accelerates to 100 km / h in 3.4 s, and its top speed is 340 km / h.
Limited models are needed by Aston Martin to maintain an exclusive status, while the box will be made by the DBX crossover debuted last week – it is destined to become the most massive model of the British brand.
