Aston Martin Releases $390K TAG Heuer DBS Superleggera, Throws in a Free Watch
The special-edition car includes a special-edition timepiece from the luxe watchmaker.
Watch this space! Fifty Aston Martin DBS Superleggeras will be built to celebrate the British automaker's partnership with the Swiss watchmaker. Each includes a limited-edition TAG Heuer DBS Edition Carrera Heuer 02 watch, and should that not be enough for your £295,000—about $391,000 at today's exchange rates—each car will be personally inspected by Andy Palmer, Aston Martin's CEO, before leaving the factory. How cool is that?
The TAG DBS Superleggera is equipped with Aston's 5.2-liter twin-turbo V-12 engine good for 715 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque. The V-12 is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission and provides enough oomph to zip you and your watch to 62 mph from a standstill in 3.4 seconds and on to a mind-boggling top speed of 211 mph.
The Aston Martin DBS Superleggera TAG Heuer Edition is dipped in Monaco Black paint with red highlights and features a satin-black-tinted carbon-fiber roof, mirrors, vents, louvers, splitter, and spoiler. There are TAG Heuer logos on the fender badges, as well.
The Batmobile-looking beast rolls on satin black 21-inch twin-spoke wheels shod with Pirelli P Zero rubber, and features red-painted brake calipers. Black leather and Alcantara lines the seats, which also get red stitching and unique TAG Heuer-model quilting. There are also plenty of carbon-fiber and dark-chrome accents throughout the cockpit.
The 50 exclusive timepieces for lucky owners feature a dial cut to mimic the mesh of the DBS grille and an embossed black calf-leather strap to match the car's interior. Now sounds like a good time to place an order because these beauties are sure to sell out fast—if they haven't already.
