Sentiment Score 79%
Reviewers from autocar have found the following***:
Rear spring and skyhook damper rates are increased to cope with an additional 100kg of mass. There are modes for the suspension, and in their firmest setting the dampers do a very good job of keeping body control close without shattering the ride quality. But at speed that back axle is less poised than with the coupe, and more prone to a shimmy. It's marginal, but it's there.

Pros
  • Powerful V12 engine
  • Impressive handling
  • Excellent ride quality
Cons
  • Not as fast as the coupe
  • Won’t be for everyone

Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
The Aston Martin DBS Superleggera measures in at 4,712mm long, 2,146mm wide (including mirrors) and 1,280mm tall. It is there or thereabouts the same size as a Ferrari 812 Superfast. Up front, there is ample head and legroom for the driver and a passenger to get comfortable. The rear seats are only really suitable for small children and even then a long-distance journey might prove uncomfortable.

Pros
  • Powerful V12 engine
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Good standard equipment
Cons
  • Limited cargo space
  • No Euro NCAP crash test

Sentiment Score 92%
Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
The Aston Martin DBS Superleggera shares everything that made the DB11 special, amplifying almost every aspect for the better. The V12 engine might not have the excitement of a Ferrari GTC4 Lusso, but otherwise it's phenomenal. You could argue that the more spacious, equally comfortable Ferrari is the better grand tourer, but the DBS is a wonderful machine nonetheless.

Pros
  • Powerful V12 engine
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Impressive handling
Cons
  • Fiddly infotainment
  • Touchpad feels awkward to use

Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
The DBS Superleggera Volante is the new premier super GT convertible in Aston Marin's now two-car open-top line-up. Just like the coupe, the convertible uses the same bonded aluminum platform used on the DB11, and of course the same 5.2-litre twin-turbo V12. The car from Crewe costs a sizeable £72,400 less than the new big Aston, so the DBS is setting out its stall quite confidently.

Pros
  • Powerful V12
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Impressive handling
Cons
  • No hard-top roof
  • No hardtop roof

Reviewers from cnet have found the following***:
The DBS Superleggera Volante has a 715-hp twin-turbo V12 engine. The interior is comfortable, but its design isn't quite as lovely as the exterior. It's best enjoyed on a winding road with the wind in your hair; save track days for another time.

Pros
  • Powerful V12 engine
  • Gorgeous looks
  • Superb infotainment
Cons
  • Lackluster interior
  • Cabin isn't the best
