Aston Martin is busy testing out plenty of new prototypes like the upcoming Rapide AMR or the Varrekai SUV, however, in the works is also the long-debated DBS Superleggera Volante, the hardcore variant of the standard model.
Following a batch of spy photos some time ago, the prototype has recently popped up in the news again in fresh ones, revealing the less camouflaged body, which indicates that it is getting closer to the production form (will be unveiled in a couple of month, after the official arrival of the coupe in a couple of weeks).
As you already know, the new Aston Martin DBS Superleggera is the official replacer of the Vanquish, meaning it will bring along a new design language, technology at its peak and a more powerful engine under the hood.
Once at the surface, the new DBS Superleggera will become available in both coupe and Volante variants, featuring a more elegant design with more aggressive lines.
Seen in testing and wearing camouflage is the droptop variant which now features quad exhaust tips, smaller rear spoiler for increased downforce and black tape on the hood.
As for interior highlights, spy photographers from motor1 magazine have managed to take a quick peak, snapshotting the lower section of the center console. Overall, the cabin looks larger than the previous model, with cues borrowed from the DB11 Volante as well. Once out in dealerships, it will come with red stitching and leather upholstery. And of course, the usual technological suit we are already familiar with.
Underneath its skin, the new Aston Martin DBS Superleggera Volante will feature a massive 5.2-liter bi-turbo V12 pot, with more than 630 horsepower and 700 Nm of torque, which is presently offered on the also fabulous DB11 AMR. We expect an official arrival of the Volante variant in summer of 2019. Meanwhile, take a look at the spy photos with the model in testing phases!
