Aston Martin resurrects old nameplate for new flagship

It looks like Aston Martins upcoming flagship will be called the DBS Superleggera. The model is notoriously known for its lightweight design and improved rigidity. This latest resurrection is meant to put forth the highest levels of design, craftsmanship and performance, and completes Aston Martinís Second Century Plan goal of replacing all its existing coupe models. AM even previewed a teaser image which showcases the new badge and hood vents, which is due to be unveiled in the second quarter of 2018.

The DBS Superleggera was already spotted testing on track under camouflage so we have an idea of what the overall body will look like. I assume what we're seeing in your picture is the hood vent that's covered up in the video.

Sweet thanks for sharing! I didn't realize that this model had already been seen out testing. It sounds just like you would expect it to, incredible. Looking forward to seeing it without all that camo.

Probably next year since it's expected to come out as a 2020 model year car. At least that's what I assume, so what we're seeing is probably the production ready body. That's fine with me so long as they keep most of those hood ridges.
