Aston Martin DBS Superleggera Concorde pays homage to the most recognizable commercial airplane in the world

Inspired by the Concorde, Luxury Supercar makers Aston Martin has unveiled the bespoke DBS Superleggera Concorde; limited to just 10 units in the world.

The Aston Martin DBS Superleggera Concorde is created by the guys at Q by Aston Martin to commemorate half century since the Concorde’s first flight and the centenary of one of Concorde’s two flag carrying airline operators, including the British Airways.

The DBS Superleggera is oart of Aston Martin’s Wings Series. It joins the Vanquish S Red Arrows Edition; Vantage Blades Edition and the V12 Vantage S Spitfire 80 in the brand’s aviation-inspired celebration models.

Fittingly, the car has been commissioned by Aston Martin Bristol which is to be found just a long runway’s length away from Aerospace Bristol at Filton, the place that is now home to the last Concorde ever to fly and the location at which the British Concorde were manufactured. This coincides precisely with the date of 26 November 2003 when the last Concorde flight, of G-BOAF now in residence at Aerospace Bristol, touched down.

Interior bliss

As it is, the DBS Superleggera has one of the world’s finest supercar cabins. Among the highlights inside for the Concorde version are the Concorde logo on the front seat facings; a Mach Meter graphic embroidered on the driver’s side sun visor; a unique headliner featuring printed Alcantara displaying a ‘sonic boom’ graphic; paddle shifters made from titanium from Concorde compressor blades; floor mats in Terence Conran design pattern; seatbelt buckle badges milled from solid aluminium and bespoke sill plaques.

In the engine department, the Concorde DBS Superleggera has the same 5.2-liter twin-turbo V12-engine. It has 725 PS and a maximum torque of 900 Nm, pushing a top speed of 340 km/h (211mph) and goes from 0 – 100 km/h in just 3.4 seconds.
