Aston Martin has uncovered the initially DBS Superleggera Concorde Edition – a distinctive version of the British brand’s flagship GT car, designed to mark the golden anniversary of Concorde’s initially flight. Production of the specific edition model will be minimal to just 10 units.

The DBS Superleggera Concorde was commissioned by Aston Martin’s dealership in Bristol, which is very little a lot more than a stone-throw away from Aerospace Bristol at Flinton – the remaining resting area of the past airbourne Concorde. The museum was also once the area at which the British Concorde was made.

As you would assume, the DBS Concorde options a host of styling revisions encouraged by the supersonic airliner it’s finished in the similar colour as the passenger jet’s, whilst its roof, entrance splitter and rear diffuser bear the similar British Airways livery. The paint scheme is complemented by a carbon fibre roof and a bespoke side strake milled from solid aluminium.

The minimal edition model also options a silhouette of Concorde on its roof and a chromed version of the popular British Airways “Speedmarque” emblem on its entrance wings. The car’s side-skirts also dress in the similar Civil Aviation Authority aircraft identifier variety as Concorde G-BOAC, which was the flagship of the British Concorde fleet until finally 31 Oct 2003.

Inside of, the DBS Superleggera Concorde options a Mach Meter graphic embroidered on the driver’s solar visor, a bespoke Alcantara headlining with a “sonic boom” graphic, new paddle shifters produced from recycled titanium from Concorde’s compressor blades and a pair of distinctive seats, printed with the Concorde logo and British Airways strake.

Aston Martin has also concealed a host of “easter eggs” all around the DBS’s cabin, with Concorde emblems etched into the car’s paddle shifters, speaker surrounds, rear armrest and map-holder. Purchasers also get a fresh new pair of side ways, printed with the similar logo and aircraft identification variety as the exterior.

Like the typical Aston Martin DBS Superleggera, the Concorde Edition is powered by a twin-turbocharged five.two-litre V12 engine, which generates 715bhp and 900Nm of torque. The engine sends its electrical power to the rear wheels by using an eight-velocity automatic transmission, and features a 0–62mph time of three.four seconds and a major velocity of 211mph.
