Called the DBS 59, it’s been built to celebrate Aston’s 1959 24 Hours of Le Mans triumph, in which its historic DBR1 racer scored a one-two victory. Just 24 examples will be produced, all sold at an undisclosed price through Aston’s official Cambridge dealership.
Each DBS 59 is painted in Aston Martin Racing Green, with gloss finish exposed carbonfibre on the roof and bonnet louvres. Bronze-painted wheels also feature, alongside bronze detailing in the front grille surround, ‘Superleggera’ bonnet script and rear badging.
The inside benefits from a similar treatment, with black and Chestnut Tan leather upholstery and fabric, said to be inspired by the seat material used in the DBR1, trimming the seat backs and door inserts. Bespoke Q by Aston Martin finishing touches include leather helmet pods the boot, embroidered headrests and a numbered white roundel on the side strakes.
