Aston Martin and TAG Heuer have unveiled the first fruit of their current promotional partnership with the launch of the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera TAG Heuer Edition. Just 50 of the £295,000 supercars, finished in Monaco Black paint with red accents, will be available globally.
If the dollar equivalent of almost three hundred grand (likely to be closer to $400k) seems a little steep, owners can at least take comfort from the fact that they will get a free limited edition TAG Heuer DBS Edition Carrera Heuer 02 thrown in with the car.
“As soon as we knew about the partnership with TAG Heuer the idea of a special edition that reflected the design cues of both brands began to form in the minds of the design team here at Aston Martin. Both brands understand the importance of meticulous craftsmanship and creating beautifully designed and engineered products and the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera TAG Heuer Edition reflects those values beautifully,” says Aston Martin vice president & chief creative officer, Marek Reichman.
The DBS Superleggera has a 5.2-litre twin-turbo V12 engine. Nicknamed the brute in a suit, the car is immaculately styled, obsessively engineered and outrageously potent.
The TAG Heuer Edition of the car is presented in Monaco Black paint with a satin black tinted carbon fibre roof, mirrors, vents, louvres, splitter and spoiler. The bespoke specification includes satin black 21” twin spoke wheels fitted with Pirelli P Zero tyres with a red accent to complement the red brake calipers. If the unique livery with red highlighting doesn’t give away the model type, the fender badge with TAG Heuer logo will do so.
Its companion timepiece, housing a Calibre Heuer 02 Automatic manufacture movement. has a hexagonal cut-out face matching the grille of the DBS and an embossed black calf leather strap mirroring the leather inside the car. Like the car, the watch will have red detailing and will be limited to 50 pieces.
