    Re: [2019] Aston Martin DBS Superleggera

    The front is a Jag, the rear looks like a Porsche and the engineering as well as parts of the interior come from Mercedes. That‘s what I call a joint venture. indecision

    Re: [2019] Aston Martin DBS Superleggera

    Looks good, better than the Japanese Vantage. Just change the front and you got your panamera coupe...... that tail light is so Porschesque


    Re: [2019] Aston Martin DBS Superleggera

    Are there people who actually like the Zagato front? I always found them off-putting compared to the normal aston martin fronts.

    I said it before and I will say it again; AM really lost it with their design language... That sat on gold, but failed miserably with letting this styling evolve. Now they are desperately trying to update their designs, but they all look clumsy, overly aggressive and lacking class... I hope they will find a better design language soon, cause I have always had a weak spot for Astons.

    Would agree but this car really requires the discrete Aston-Martin winged logo on its rear versus the spelt out Aston Martin logo.  That would increase its coolness factor.


    Re: [2019] Aston Martin DBS Superleggera

    to my eye it's a perfect blend of Zagato,DB11 and Vantage in one car ! the word superleggera is a bit "off" for such a heavy car but everything else just cries out class ! I would take this over a 812 anyday


    Re: [2019] Aston Martin DBS Superleggera

    agree....don't thing the lettering looks good either

    You are aware that the Aston has a turbo charged engine, do you? Smiley

    The Biturbo V12 from Mercedes isn't exactly a master in throttle response and/or turbo lag. 

    Sound could be OK but even that isn't sure...

    I would take the 812 over this Aston anytime. Smiley

    Re: [2019] Aston Martin DBS Superleggera

    The V12 isn’t from MB. I thought it was a derivative of the previous Ford generation.

    i love the Aston’s looks but the Ferrari engine wins.  Ferrari could learns some lessons from Aston in exterior design.

    Didn't know that...interesting. Not that a Ford derivative bi-turbo V12 would be better. Smiley

    The engine in the 812 is a treat, no doubt about it. I would get the 812 with that n/a engine even if it looked like a Ford. Smiley Smiley

    On a more serious note: 900 Nm and RWD? My E63 S has AWD and in Sport+ and Race mode, the car has traction(!) issues. So I'm not sure how the Aston will handle it. 

    I'd still prefer the V12 Vantage S but what does a R8 driver like me know?! Smiley

    Nope, posers buy because they don't have the credit rating to lease. Smiley (at least here in Germany)

    Also, posers buy because they don't know how to invest the "saved" money on financial markets. 

    Unless of course you have so much money that you don't care, then I would buy too. Smiley

    On an even more serious note: Not a fan of turbo charged engines in sportscars, even GT cars. 

    However, it is good to see that Aston Martin hasn't given up and finally entered the power/performance game (hopefully).

    Re: [2019] Aston Martin DBS Superleggera

    For the record RC, you don’t invest, you speculate on the financial markets, it is not quite the same.

    This car seem interesting but until we all see it in real, I am still puzzled by the mixed design messages.

    Of course I speculate but you got my point... Smiley

    AM wants to be portrayed as up-to-date again, design- and performance-wise. I guess. Probably the reason why they do it differently right now. Could work, could go wrong since AM has a more traditional clientele.
