Aston Martin's DBS nameplate to return as new flagship model

Aston Martin Vanquish winter spy front quarter

We're told the Superleggera name hints at what we can expect from the next Vanquish - sorry, DBS Superleggera - when it arrives. After being succeed by the current-generation Vanquish in 2012, the DBS name has since remained dormant, until now.

The DBS nameplate was first introduced back in 1967 when Aston Martin introduced a new grand tourer as a successor to the DB6.

The new Superleggera will tackle the brand's ambitions to replace each of its existing two-door sportscar models as part of its "Second Century Plan".

Aston Martin isn't providing any specific details.

This new variant will sit at the top of its sports vehicle line-up, reusing a nameplate that has been a part of Aston Martin's history for over 50 years.

The expectation is still that it'll borrow quite a bit from the DB11, both in terms of the junior car's aluminium platform and its 5.2-litre twin-turbo V12 - putting out around 650hp in uprated guise.

Then again, it's possible Aston Martin has something else in mind entirely, we'll just have to wait and see. Dubbed the "DBS Superleggera", it's not only summons the nameplate's first appearance in half a decade, but also signals a change in the terminology of Gaydon's flagship model. In terms of hierarchy, this new model will sit at the top of their lineup and will feature the highest levels of performance. Having previously made an appearance on the DB4, DB5 and DB6, its inclusion on the DBS is created to pay homage to the super-lightweight construction once enabled by Touring.

The new Aston Martin DBS Superleggera will be unveiled in Q2 of 2018. It's an icon, a statement - and this one will be no different.
