Aston Martin continues to refine the successor to the DBS Superleggera, with recent sightings at the Nürburgring Nordschleife capturing the most production-ready prototype to date. Sporting quad exhaust outlets, this sleek machine hints at Aston Martin’s next chapter beyond the DB12.

Notable updates include Vantage-inspired headlights with six LEDs per side for daytime running lights, alongside prominent hood vents and an enlarged front lip spoiler. However, the most significant changes lie at the rear, featuring a redesigned bumper, aerodynamic diffuser, and distinctive taillights distinct from previous models.

While side profiles reveal fewer differences from the DB12, the potential for upgraded performance is evident. The anticipated inclusion of stiffer anti-roll bars and intelligent adaptive dampers promises enhanced handling and rigidity, likely achieved through advancements in chassis technology.

Equipped with a ZF-supplied transaxle and carbon-ceramic brakes, the flagship grand tourer hints at a formidable powertrain. With the potential for carbon-fiber body panels and a lightweight prop shaft, Aston Martin aims to deliver exhilarating performance, befitting its legendary status.

To rival competitors like Ferrari’s upcoming 812 successor, Aston Martin must deliver over 800 horsepower, ensuring competitive performance in the super GT segment. Anticipation builds as the British automaker prepares for the official revealing, signaling a new era of sophistication and performance in luxury motoring.
