Aston Martin continues with the surprises. Recently, they showed their latest work - DBS 59. The car is created to celebrate the 60th anniversary of DBR1’s legendary win at 24 hours of Le Mans race, in 1959.
The special vehicle is based on the DBS Superleggera, as it copies almost all of the car's technical specifications. However, an array of unique intricate elements, placed all over the of the limited edition car, grab a person’s attention right away and evoke the racing spirit.
The specially commissioned DBS 59 comes in a single paint color - British racing green. Front grille, brake calipers, wheels and entire badging are highlighted in contrasting bronze finish. Carbon fibre is used for the roof, hood louvers, spoiler and rear valance.
Aston Martin DBS 59 replicates the original DBR 1 cockpit at 100% . A testimony of that is the enhanced racing spirit, that can be felt all over the cabin through the exceptional British racing trim, and the bespoke brown and black leather seats. An interesting addition to the luxurious vehicle are the accessories coming with it. DBS 59's retro helmets in the same color, racing gloves (like those from 1959) and two-piece luggage set bring the driver back in the glorious days of 24 Hour of Le Mans race, where Aston Martin DBR1 snapped the gold.
Only 24 units of DBS 59 will be produced (one for each of the 24 hours of the legendary competition). Each vehicle will get its unique number stamped on it, and will receive a special car cover with the same number.
The manufacturer has not yet announced the price, but the orders have already started.
