For the 2022 model year, the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera is getting a shortened name: the DBS. Mechanically, it remains identical to the 2021 model but a few styling updates include new 21-inch wheel designs.
Under the hood, the twin-turbo 5.2-liter V12 with 715 horsepower and 664 lb-ft of torque routed only to the rear wheels via an 8-speed automatic gearbox remains. Zero-60 mph takes 3.4 seconds. This front-engined monster goes head-to-head with a certain other V12-powered beast: the Ferrari 812 Superfast.
This particular drivetrain and design will soon be retired as Aston Martin has confirmed all-electric replacements for both the DB11 and Vantage are coming in the near future. This obviously spells doom for the DBS at some point. For now, pricing is expected to remain the same, beginning at around $305,000.
