It's Time For A Special Edition Aston Martin DBS Superleggera

Watches / Comments

Only 50 examples of this TAG Heuer edition will be made

If you dig watches (nearly) as much as you like cars, you'll love this latest collaboration. It's a special edition of the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera, made in collaboration with TAG Heuer, and to our eyes at least, it looks pretty slick.

Details, we're afraid, are few and far between. But the vehicle appears to be done up in a two-tone black finish, with deep, black cherry bodywork and a black roof. Carbon-fiber trim proliferates across the shape, and the split-five-spoke wheels are blacked out to match, with red brake calipers and red-letter Pirelli tires.

The interior's similarly decked out in quilted black leather and Alcantara with red piping and stitching, and the available Satin Chopped carbon-fiber trim.

Otherwise it's ostensibly the same as any other DBS Superleggera – but that's no bad thing. The amped-up, recloaked version of the DB11 packs a 5.2-liter twin-turbo V12 good for 715 horsepower and 664 lb-ft of torque, dispatched to the rear wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission. It'll run to 60 mph in 3.2 seconds and top out at 211 miles per hour, making for one rather rapid grand tourer.

In the case of the TAG Heuer edition, though, you'll be able to time its pace on your wrist. The car's said to come with a special-edition wristwatch, and though we don't have details on that, it won't be the first that the Swiss watchmaker has done for the British automaker. The two share a motorsports partnership through Red Bull Racing, and we won't be surprised to see them collaborating more moving forward (at the rapid pace to which they're accustomed).

No word on pricing, but only 50 examples will be made, and you can bet they'll sell for more than the standard $300k.
