Just 10 Aston Martin DBS Superleggera Concordes will be built, all the product of Aston Martin’s bespoke Q Division in collaboration with Aston Martin Bristol, through which every example will be sold. Why Bristol, specifically? Because the final Concorde to fly, with the tail number G-BOAF, now resides in local museum Aerospace Bristol.
As a special edition, every DBS Superleggera Concorde will feature some Concorde-specific special details. The vent behind the front wheels now features a solid-aluminium Concorde, a black-tinted carbon-fibre roof with a Concorde silhouette graphic, an enamel filled Union Jack Aston Martin wing badge and, just in front of the rear wheels, the tail number G-BOAC.
The DBS Superleggera Concorde pays tribute not just to the plane itself but also to British Airways, the company that took British Concordes to the skies. Look behind the front wheels and you’ll notice the British Airways ‘Speedmarque’ emblem above a Q Division badge, and British Airways colours on the carbon-fibre splitter and rear wing.
Inside you’ll notice three tiny Concordes surrounding the speakers, and a single Concorde at the bottom of each gearbox paddle behind the steering wheel. There’s a Concorde silhouette in the roof lining and one between the rear seats, too, and the word ‘Concorde’ with the British Airways logo pressed into the leather seats. Finally, the sills of every car have been signed by Aston Martin CEO Andy Palmer and British Airways Chairman Álex Cruz.
