Aston Exotic’s Oriental Aesthetic Courtesy Of The DBS Superleggera Arabesque

A sweet treat launched in the lead up to Eid, the exquisite Aston Martin DBS Superleggera Arabesque looks east for inspiration, and seems to have it all for the oil tycoon with a taste for the finer things – bar an on-board hookah smoker’s package.

Commissioned by Aston Martin Middle East and North Africa and built by the British manufacturer’s bespoke Q division and set to become available as a trim level for other models, the Arabesque is finished in indigo and features black enamel wings and subtle oriental patterned carbon fibre panels. A tasteful take on regional flavours, the DBS Arabesque incorporates camel hair and silk upholstering and quilted eastern pattern coral sand leather on the inside. Unchanged however, are the DBS’ fearsome 5.2-litre twin-turbo V12 engine, sublime chassis and dramatic design.

10 May 2020, Dubai, UAE – Aston Martin MENA has commissioned a unique specification called DBS Superleggera ‘Arabesque’, which has been exclusively created for the Middle East region to pay tribute to Arabian art and design.

Showcasing new Arabic details and featuring lavish personalisation via Aston Martin’s bespoke service ‘Q by Aston Martin’, the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera Arabesque proudly incorporates traditional Middle Eastern elements within its signature design codes.

The DBS Superleggera Arabesque features a carefully judged selection of interior and exterior design and trim modifications. The specification features bespoke materials such as camel hair and silk, as well as unique inlaid Arabesque patterned carbon fibre throughout.

The exterior is finished in rich Royal Indigo, setting a stunning contrast to any typical Middle Eastern vista. The patterned carbon fibre roof, front splitter, diffuser and rear spoiler unite to seamlessly enhance the DBS Superleggera’s refined lines. The Aston Martin wings are crafted in black enamel, each crafted by hand during a twenty-hour process. The duotone interior in Indigo & Coral Sand Bridge of Weir leather™ delivers an exquisite finish and the Arabesque pattern carries throughout with the quilt pattern on the roof headlining, the seats and head rests, which also feature embroidered Aston Martin wings.

This, of course, is supported by the supreme performance of the DBS Superleggera – the brand’s 5.2-litre twin-turbo V12-engined Super GT flagship boasting 725 PS, 900 Nm of torque, a top speed of  338kph and blistering acceleration that dispatches 0-100 kph in just 3.4 seconds.

The striking Arabesque specification will be introduced to more Aston Martin models in the future – including the new DBX SUV.
