If $300,000 is in the ballpark, this car is definitely a great choice. The 8-speed transmission may seem too much, but the performance numbers show otherwise. There was a time when 7-speed transmission were “out there”, but now they’re the norm. Overall, the DBS Superleggera is another fine Aston Martin design.

Celebrating a Victory from the Past

With the Aston Martin DBS 59, the company celebrates a 1959 Le Mans 1-2 victory in the DBR1. Basically, it is a DBS Superleggera, with changes to the exterior. Pricing isn’t clearly known, but there will only be 24 units from production. Hopefully, the correlation between 24 Hours of Le Mans and 24 units of production makes sense. If not, now it should. Each model will receive a small white number next to the side strakes to show which model number.

Differences from the DBS Superleggera

With the Aston Martin DBS 59 being a Superleggera under the hood, this car sports the same 715 horsepower engine. And, yes, it still reaches over 200 mph. But, the exterior sports major differences. Firstly, the car is painted with a British racing green tone. To complement this, there is gloss carbon fiber on the hood louvers, rear valence, roof, roof strakes, and spoiler. To offset this, bronze accents can be seen on the badging, brake calipers, front grille, and wheels. This combination truly symbolizes British racing. What is not to love about that?

The interior of the Aston Martin DBS 59 is also stunning, just as the exterior. First, there is a tri-tone combo of colors. The seats comprise of brown and black leather. A British racing green trim can be seen to complement this color tone combination. The interior fabric is meant to connect with the past DBR1 model. Furthermore, even crazier, is the fact that the rear compartment holds quite a few specialty items. These include special DBS 59 crash helmets, period-correct blue race overalls, racing gloves, a bespoke two-piece luggage set, and a car cover specific to the model number. So, this ends up being quite the collector piece. Owning the car itself is one thing, but owning all of this other collectible ‘jawns’ is pretty cool.

As Aston Martin expands its lineup, it continues to stun fans worldwide. The Aston Martin DBS 59 is another amazing vehicle by the manufacturer. With its unique style, this is basically a collector’s edition of the DBS Superleggera. The Superleggera itself is amazing, but this takes it a whole other step further. Some people may even consider selling their Superleggera to upgrade. But, getting one of the 24 units will not be easy. In conclusion, the DBS 59 is another amazing feat of engineering by Aston Martin.

Aston Martin Now Offering IPO at $24!

Americans Miss Out on the Aston Martin IPO

Yes! The iconic sports car manufacturer, Aston Martin, plans to go public, and for $24 you can own a piece of their company. Well, unless you live in America, that is.

Aston Martin produces one of the world’s most well-known luxury brands. Thanks to James Bond, we will ever view them as luxurious and elegant. Plus, the whole spy thing makes us think of the Aston as high-tech.

(In case you didn’t know:  they’ve even made a limited number of the DB5 models with all of those spy gadgets included.)

The principal owners of the company are various private-equity firms in Italy, Kuwait, and Germany. It is some of these firms that are selling off their stakes in the company to the public. Daimler, the German group, is not selling.

Aston Martin is not issuing new stock, nor is it attempting to raise additional capital.

Aston Martin says that 25% of the company shares will go to the public. Estimates put this figure at 56,305,622 to 57,380,3000 shares. Also, based on a statement by company executives last week, the cost to purchase a stake in the company should be around $24.
