Aston Martin DBS Superleggera First Look Review: A Brute In A Suit

Posted on

We said that the standard V12 DB11 isn’t exactly slow, but it does lack a certain panache that the DB9 had. Perhaps that is why so soon into the DB11’s life cycle, it has already been upgraded with the 630 hp DB11 AMR. We aren’t saying the DB11 isn’t fast, just not as exciting as we initially hoped. In terms of speed, the 5.2-liter twin-turbo V12 feels like a fighter jet compared to the old 5.9-liter V12, which was more like a propeller plane. Still, the old engine would sing a glorious V12 song, while the new turbo unit simply sounds adequate at best. We hope that Aston can take it up few notches with the DBS, and force that turbo V12 to sing.
