Announced at the end of 2019 to mark 50 years since Concorde’s first flight (and BA’s centenary), the DBS Superleggera Concorde was a Q by Aston Martin creation. It joined the Vanquish S Red Arrows Edition, Vantage Blades Edition and V12 Vantage S Spitfire 80 in the Aston Martin ‘Wings Series’.
Fittingly, the car was commissioned by Aston Martin Bristol which is to be found just a runway's length away from Aerospace Bristol at Filton - the place that is now home to the last Concorde ever to fly and the location at which the British Concorde were manufactured.
There were just 10 DBS Concordes produced, with only 4 in right-hand drive. The limited-edition model features a host of styling revisions over a standard Superleggera, including a silhouette of Concorde on its carbon fibre roof and a chromed version of the famous British Airways “Speedmarque” emblem on its front wings.
Inside, the DBS Superleggera Concorde features a Mach Meter graphic embroidered on the driver’s sun visor, a bespoke Alcantara headlining with a “sonic boom” graphic, new paddle shifters made from recycled titanium from Concorde’s compressor blades and a pair of unique seats, printed with the Concorde logo and British Airways strake
All 10 Superleggeras had their production number matched to the tail number of an actual Concorde. This car is ‘G-BOAC’, the flagship of the British Airways fleet until October 2003 and a very special Concorde in its own right. Now on permanent display in Manchester, it holds the speed record for a commercial plane (at 1,488mph), was the first Concorde to land in the USA, and also the first airliner to complete four Atlantic crossings in a day.
The Concorde Edition is powered by a twin-turbocharged 5.2-litre V12 engine, which produces 715bhp and 900Nm of torque. The engine sends its power to the rear wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission, and offers a 0–62mph time of 3.4 seconds and a top speed of 211mph.
This example sits today in superb condition with just 1 owner from new and showing just under 3,000 miles. This specific car also features the Titanium exhaust upgrade styled to look like the jet tailpipes and mimic the engine acoustics of Concorde. It benefits further from full Topaz car paint protection film and maintains all additional factory accessories including the matching luggage set and jacket.
