They made more beautiful what was the most beautiful

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.


A combination of qualities, such as shape, proportions, or form, that pleases the aesthetic senses, especially the sight.

Definition of beauty

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 fiber 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.


It looks stunning. And Aston Martin never fails to surprises the world with its unmatched design of this iconic Gran Turismo. I have a question though: why “Superleggera”? “Superlight” didn’t sound well enough?
