2020 Aston Martin DBS

The 715bhp provided by the DBS Superleggera 5.2 V12 twin-turbo engine is a colossal figure by any standard. But that is just where its talent starts. When you drive the DBS Superleggera you get to savour something else even more phenomenal – its torque.

Torque is as difficult to explain as it is easy to experience: it is the power of the punch you feel when a car accelerates, and the DBS has 900Nm of it, more than any Aston Martin road car in our history.

Thanks to the outstanding flexibility of our hand-built, twin-turbo 5.2-litre V12 engine, there’s no need to wait: all of it is available from just 1800rpm.
