Aston Martin shows DBS Superleggera Concorde Edition

The limited-production car is inspired by the supersonic airliner.

Aston Martin has revealed the special-edition DBS Superleggera Concorde, celebrating 50 years since the supersonic airliner first took to the skies.

The Concorde is the latest custom creation from the 'Q by Aston Martin' division, adding to the growing family of Wings Series cars inspired by aviation.

The DBS Superleggera's exterior has been modified with milled aluminum side strakes and a unique paint scheme that matches the British Airways colors on the roof strake, aero blade and rear diffuser. The black carbon-fiber roof features a Concorde silhouette graphic, while the British Airways 'Speedmarque' logo adorns the front wings.

The interior features Concorde logos on the seat facings, a Mach Meter graphic on the sun visor and a unique Alcantara headliner displaying a 'sonic boom' graphic. Paddle shifters are made from recycled titanium sourced from actual Concorde compressor blades.

The Superleggera's 5.2-liter twin-turbo V12 carries over with 715 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque, allowing the car to hit 62 mph in 3.4 seconds, 100 mph in 6.4 seconds and eventually top out at 211 mph.

The DBS Superleggera Concorde Edition will be limited to 10 examples, each presumably commanding a sizable premium over the base model's $305,000 price tag.
