Confirmed: Aston Martin DBS to make a comeback

Under the carbon fiber skin is Aston Martin's latest bonded and extruded aluminum platform that debuted in the DB11 and has since appeared in the Vantage. While Aston Martin's range-topping supercar has worn the Vanquish and DBS model designations alternately since 2001 (when the first Vanquish was released), the appearance of the Superleggera name is a first here.

When the new DBS does arrive - and AML say it will be unveiled in Q2 - expect it to sport more aggressive styling than the DB11, keep faith with the "Superleggera" bit by being lighter than you might expect, and have a meaty number of horses to play with.

Vehicle enthusiasts and Aston Martin fans won't have to reach into the deep recesses of their mind to know that the DBS nameplate has played a large role in the automaker's history.

The DBS nameplate was first introduced back in 1967 when Aston Martin introduced a new grand tourer as a successor to the DB6. More recently, the DBS was revived around a decade ago.

Well DBS fans, the name's making a comeback. Now that might throw even some of the astute fans for a loop. The vehicle will be built on an all-new model platform, powered by an engine not shared with any other series-production Aston models, and its engineering is being led by chief technical officer Max Szwaj, who was recruited from rival Ferrari in December 2016. But while we may not have any confirmation of performance or specification, we do now have our first solid information on the new auto: that it won't be a Vanquish at all. Another thing you can count on is the placement of the badge, which will be on the front fender - just like it was on the older cars. It's the definitive Aston Martin super-GT.

Aston Martin chief creative officer, and the man who designed the 2007 DBS, Marek Reichman says the re-assigning of such an iconic badge was very deliberate. It's an icon, a statement - and this one will be no different.

"We've pushed the boundaries of performance and design to give this auto a distinct character and ensure it's worthy of the heritage and weight that this name carries", he added.
