Aston Martin Cambridge commissioned the slick DBS 59 that you see in the image here via Q by Aston Martin. The car is meant to celebrate the historic Aston win at the 24 hours of Le Mans in 1959 when two DBR1 cars took first and second place in the race. To commemorate each hour of the race, 24 DBS 59 cars are being made.
They will all have the same carbon fiber roof and Aston Martin Racing Green paint. Lots of bronze touches are meant to tie into the bronze switches used on the DBR1 racing car. The interior of the car is in obsidian black and chestnut tan leather with a special weave on the seat backs and door panels recreated from the racing car of the ’50s.
All of the DBS 59 cars are based on the DBS Superleggera launched last year. That means power is from a 5.2L V12 engine that can push the car to 211 mph. Pricing and availability for the DBS 59 cars is unknown.
