Presenting the new V8 Superleggera

27 September 2021

The Superleggera V8 is an exciting new concept from Aston Workshop that combines the charismatic V8 performance of Aston Martins of the 1970s and 1980s with bespoke hand-crafted design recalling the beautiful Superleggera models of the 1960s – a gorgeous two-plus-two seater, and successor to the DB6 as conceived by our craftsmen.

Based on a genuine Aston Martin V8 donor car and fully road legal, the V8 Superleggera capitalises on Aston Workshop’s capability to restore and remanufacture components on-site, and our expertise in sympathetically upgrading classic Aston Martins to achieve additional performance, enhanced dynamics and modern usability. It also represents the next logical step from our DB4 GT Zagato recreation model (see page 7 for more details).

The Aston Workshop Superleggera V8 has been painstakingly developed over several years from initial design sketches, through both traditional clay modelling and state-of-the-art 3D computer renderings. It utilises authentic lightweight 1960s body technology, with aluminium panels hand-crafted to echo classic Aston Martin proportions.

The V8 engine is upgraded from 5.3 litres to our potent 6.0 Evolution specification, paired with either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission, with chassis and braking systems uprated to suit. A choice of left- or right-hand drive is available.

Featuring the finest upgrades and enhancements available from our portfolio, the finished car is 100% road legal, built exactly to customer specification, supplied with a registration document certifying it as a heritage Aston Martin and carrying the famous winged badges.

The first of these beautiful examples is currently in build, offered in LHD and awaits final specification by its new owner. We are happy to transform your existing AM V8 into one of these amazing cars, or source a project car on your behalf. Please enquire for further information.
