Aston Martin’s current top car, the DBS Superleggera, is a true mean machine on the road, with more than 700 hp and 660 lb.-ft. of torque at its disposal. But more power can be further squeezed out of this already menacing supercar, courtesy of German tuner Wheelsandmore.
Known for specializing in tuning Aston Martin cars, Wheelsandmore probably has a better idea on how to make the DBS Superleggera perform. So, the German tuner focused on the core of this supercar from the United Kingdom – its twin-turbo, 5.2-liter V12 engine.
Especially engineered for the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera, this large mill in standard tune can deliver up to 715 hp (725 PS) of output at 6,500 rpm, as well as up to 664 lb.-ft. (900 Nm) of torque available between 1800 rpm and 5,000 rpm.
These power figures can send it sprinting from nil to 62 mph in just 3.6 seconds and from a standstill to 100 mph in only 6.7 seconds. Not only that, this engine is able to push the supercar to a top speed of 211 mph.
But for Wheelsandmore, these numbers aren’t enough, so the German tuner decided to find ways to boost them up. The result? The V12 mill is now more powerful by 104 hp (105 PS) and 96 lb.-ft. (130 Nm). Final figures for a tuned Aston Martin DBS Superleggera are 818 hp (830 PS) of max output and 760 lb.-ft. (1,030 Nm) of peak torque.
To achieve this power surge, Wheelsandmore explored two tuning options. Regardless which tuning option you choose, the final figures remain the same. Moreover, the price for each tuning option is the same: EUR 4,193 ($4.628) each. So, it’s really up to you which option you choose for your Aston Martin DBS Superleggera, as it doesn’t really matter in terms of results and price.
The first option entails classic chip tuning, which involves optimizing the software for the ECU (engine control unit) of the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera. The second option entails the installment of a Tec-Tronic, an easy-to-install plug-and-play power box that comes with an extra control unit.
According to Wheelsandmore, it is best to fill up the tank with gasoline containing at least 98 Octane. The tuner noted that using gasoline with 102 Octane would deliver the most power.
As its names indicates, Wheelsandmore also offers rims. For the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera, the German tuner is offering highly customized wheels measuring 10×22 inches on the front and 12×22 inches on the rear. Shod with high-performance Pirelli tires, these massive wheels are only available at Wheelsandmore.
