Aston Martin DBS Superleggera Transformed Into 820-HP Ferrari Killer

Tuning / Comments

Aston Martin's flagship grand tourer now has more power than the Ferrari 812 Superfast.

With its 5.2-liter, twin-turbo V12 generating 715 hp and 663 lb-ft of torque, the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera is one of the most powerful luxury grand tourers on the planet. To quote Aston Martin Chief Creative Officer Marek Reichman, the DBS is a "brute in a suit."

Aston Martin has already extracted more power from the DBS Superleggera with the stunning limited-edition DBS GT Zagato, which has an increased output of 760 horsepower. That makes it the fastest and most powerful Aston Martin road car yet. Taking this a stage further, German aftermarket tuner Wheelsandmore has made the DBS Superleggera even more powerful.

To increase the performance, Wheelsandmore is offering standard chip tuning or an easy-to-install plug-and-play kit with an additional control unit. In both cases, the torque has increased by 95 lb-ft and the power has increased by 105 horsepower.

As a result, the modified Aston Martin DBS Superleggera produces an absurd 820 horsepower and 758 lb-ft of torque. That makes it even more powerful than its chief rival, the Ferrari 812 Superfast, which has a 6.5-liter V12 producing 788 hp and 529 lb-ft of torque.

Wheelsandmore hasn't said how the power bump has affected the car's performance, but the modifications should make it quicker off the line. In stock form, Aston Martin's flagship grand-tourer sprints from 0-62 mph in 3.4 seconds and 0-100 mph in 6.4 seconds. Top speed remains unchanged at 211 mph, which is probably wise.

The tuning upgrade from Wheelsandmore will set you back 4,193 euros ($4,621) on top of the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera's $304,995 base price. No cosmetic changes have been made to the sleek body, but Wheelsandmore has fitted the DBS Superleggera with a special set of 22-inch wheels that can be finished in a chosen color and surface, wrapped in high-performance Pirelli tires.
