Aston Martin Vanquish replacement to be called DBS Superleggera

Aston Martin Vanquish replacement to be called DBS Superleggera

-    Aston Martin will bring back the DBS Superleggera moniker for the flagship Vanquish’s successor.

-     The Vanquish nameplate will then be used for the impending mid-engine Aston Martin which will rival the Ferrari 488 GTB and McLaren 720S.

-    The front-engine 5.2-litre V12 will be retained for the ‘super GT’

Aston Martin will reform the nomenclature for its most expensive model, the Vanquish, when enters a new generation later this year. The Vanquish replacement will be called 'DBS Superleggera' paying homage to the original 1967 DBS which was also revived in 2007. The use of 'Superleggera' here is a nod to Aston’s history with Italian coachbuilder, Touring Superleggera.

The Vanquish’s successor will be “the definitive Aston Martin super-GT”, says Aston’s chief creative officer, Marek Reichman. So, we are sure that the all-new DBS Superleggera will continue using Aston Martin’s twin-turbocharged 5.2-litre V12. The output this time around will be north of 700bhp.

Aston Martin has remained tight-lipped about any further detail on the new DBS or the mid-engined Vanquish. According to reports, the mid-engined Aston Martin will employ an all-new platform and a specially developed powertrain. It will be positioned above the new DBS Superleggera. And we expect it to be a lot more aggressive as well, given that it will take on the fight against the Ferrari 488, Lamborghini Aventador and McLaren 720S.

The Gaydon-based carmaker is planning a model offensive that includes a new car every year, seven of which will be arriving by 2023. The British marque has confirmed the launch of its first SUV, the DBX, by 2019, followed by the unnamed mid-engine supercar coming in 2020. However, the DB11 Volante will precede it in the pipeline.
