Aston Martin has disclosed the 1st DBS Superleggera Concorde Edition – a exclusive model of the British brand’s flagship GT automobile, designed to mark the golden anniversary of Concorde’s 1st flight. Generation of the special edition model will be limited to just ten models.
The DBS Superleggera Concorde was commissioned by Aston Martin’s dealership in Bristol, which is small a lot more than a stone-toss away from Aerospace Bristol at Flinton – the ultimate resting area of the previous airbourne Concorde. The museum was also when the locale at which the British Concorde was created.
As you would be expecting, the DBS Concorde attributes a host of styling revisions motivated by the supersonic airliner it is completed in the same color as the passenger jet’s, although its roof, front splitter and rear diffuser bear the same British Airways livery. The paint plan is complemented by a carbon fibre roof and a bespoke side strake milled from sound aluminium.
The limited edition model also attributes a silhouette of Concorde on its roof and a chromed model of the famed British Airways “Speedmarque” emblem on its front wings. The car’s side-skirts also have on the same Civil Aviation Authority plane identifier range as Concorde G-BOAC, which was the flagship of the British Concorde fleet until eventually 31 October 2003.
Inside of, the DBS Superleggera Concorde attributes a Mach Meter graphic embroidered on the driver’s sunlight visor, a bespoke Alcantara headlining with a “sonic boom” graphic, new paddle shifters built from recycled titanium from Concorde’s compressor blades and a pair of exclusive seats, printed with the Concorde symbol and British Airways strake.
Aston Martin has also hidden a host of “easter eggs” about the DBS’s cabin, with Concorde emblems etched into the car’s paddle shifters, speaker surrounds, rear armrest and map-holder. Customers also get a refreshing pair of side steps, printed with the same symbol and plane identification range as the exterior.
Like the standard Aston Martin DBS Superleggera, the Concorde Edition is powered by a twin-turbocharged 5.2-litre V12 motor, which creates 715bhp and 900Nm of torque. The motor sends its energy to the rear wheels by way of an eight-velocity automated transmission, and offers a 0–62mph time of three.four seconds and a major velocity of 211mph.
