We mentioned in the intro that a statement such as 'it's the best Aston ever' is damning with faint praise. Well, just so you know that's not what we're doing, here's a statement for you: the DBS Superleggera is the best front-engined, rear-wheel drive GT we've ever driven. Okay, the Ferrari 812 Superfast might have more power, but when we're talking about cars that offer 700bhp-plus each, somehow that just seems like bragging rights. What makes the DBS so special is that Aston Martin has harnessed all that power in a chassis that makes you the master of it, rather than its slave. It means that, believe it or not, this 715bhp car is one that you can enjoy genuinely not just on a track but also on the road.

Monumental performance comes courtesy of a very tractable 5.2-litre twin-turbocharged V12. And when we say monumental performance, we mean it: 0-62mph takes just 3.4sec, but even more impressive is the 0-100mph time of 6.4sec and its top speed of 211mph. That’s what 715bhp will do for you.
