Given its billing as a Super GT, and the fact the previous DBS was a more powerful variant of the front-engined DB9, we'd suggest the DBS Superleggera is aimed at filling a similar role for the DB11. While Aston Martin's range-topping supercar has worn the Vanquish and DBS model designations alternately since 2001 (when the first Vanquish was released), the appearance of the Superleggera name is a first here.

Along with the resurrection of the DBS nameplate, Touring's famous mark - Superleggera - will once again adorn the bonnet of an Aston Martin.

Aston Martin hasn't touched the DBS nameplate for a couple of years now.

Collaboration with the coach builder helped the brand build the DB4, 5 and 6 Mark 1, hinting that the new vehicle will feature a super lightweight construction. Aston claims that the name also provides a hint of what can be expected from the upcoming model, set to feature "the highest levels of performance, craftsmanship and design".

The automaker's confirmed the new vehicle will be deserved of the name, too, and implied carbon-fibre body panels all over will indeed also help keep the weight down.

We know Aston Martin is in the midst of a product revolution, led by the DB11 and Vantage. For now, details regarding the DBS Superleggera are scarce. It's an icon, a statement - and this one will be no different.

We've pushed the boundaries of performance and design to give this vehicle a distinct character and ensure it's worthy of the heritage and weight that this name carries,"said Aston Martin's chief creative officer Marek Reichman".

"We've pushed the boundaries of performance and design to give this auto a distinct character and ensure it's worthy of the heritage and weight that this name carries", he added.

The new Aston Martin DBS Superleggera will be unveiled in Q2 of 2018.
