It's the stuff of Arabian dreams.
Aston Martin is one of the world's most beloved luxury performance car brands and produces some of the most beautiful sports cars the world has ever seen, including the Vantage and DB11 Coupe. Just as we were starting to worry about the future of this iconic brand due to some financial troubles, Aston Martin has hit back with some surprising offerings.
What you see before you is a limited edition DBS Superleggera that has been customized by Aston Martin's in house bespoke service "Q by Aston Martin" which is also responsible for the stunning bespoke DBX we featured not too long ago.
What makes this limited edition DBS Superleggera so special is the painstaking detail Aston Martin's Q division has gone through to make this car, destined for the Middle Eastern region, so special. The design is meant to pay tribute to Arabian art and design and incorporates these elements with flawless ease.
Named the DBS Superleggera Arabesque, this car's exterior design features a Royal Indigo paint job that looks rich and dramatic and is combined with other elements such as a carbon-fiber roof, front splitter, diffuser, and rear spoiler. The Aston Martin wings are made from black enamel that takes twenty hours to produce by hand.
Moving on to the interior, the DBS Superleggera Arabesque features a dual-tone Weir leather cabin finished off in Indigo & Coral Sand Bridge. The Arabesque pattern design, which resembles a shining star, covers the sides of the sport seats as well as headrest, which also feature Aston Martin wings. Other material options include camel hair and silk, as well as patterned carbon fiber.
Under the hood of the DBS Superleggera Arabesque lies a 5.2-liter twin-turbo V12 which produces a massive 715 horsepower, all of which gets sent to the rear wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission. Aston Martin plans to introduce the Arabesque trim to other models, including the DBX SUV.
