4. All about the engine
Being the new flagship of Aston, the DBS still inherited almost the same underpinning as that of the DB11 AMR. This gorgeous new arrival though is lighter due to its body parts made of carbon fiber. Although lighter, it has packed on more power thanks to the engines that are enabled by the uprated high torque edition of the ZF eight-speed gearbox.
Aston definitely placed a lot of thought when it comes to the DBS Superleggera, and they've made good with their promise of putting in detail changes while preserving ride comfort. This car with a lot of character boasts a 5.2-liter twin turbo V12 engine packed with more power and torque compared to any Aston cars. Just how powerful?
It produces an incredibly impressive 715 horsepower and 664 lb-ft torque. That is power at its finest, and Aston Martin knows and is firmly confident that torque will win over strength any day.

The power is transmitted to the rear wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission, one that manual lovers would surely be disappointed about. The attainable top speed is as 211 mph with test drives clocking in 3.4 seconds for 0.60 mph and 6.4 seconds for 0 to 100 mph. Torque is steady and dependable despite the engine speed, and the sustained power and truth are, speed can be pretty addicting.

Considered as a missile in a straight line, this Aston Martin car that entailed 200 hours just for a single car is indeed a super right car. It is not a one trick pony as well but almost a jack of trades as despite it being turbocharged, the V12 masks itself as a supercharged motor at high loads because of its oil pump producing a very identifiable whining sound which is somewhat entertaining.
