The fact it went twice the speed of sound made flying by Concorde a unique experience and it’s been 50 years since the British-French supersonic jet first took to the skies. To celebrate, Aston Martin has revealed a DBS Superleggera Concorde Edition and it looks absolutely gorgeous.

The 10 cars have been commissioned by Aston Martin Bristol and they all feature interior and exterior nods to Concorde’s famous conical design. This includes the British Airways Speedmarque logo up front, and more BA livery adorning the rear wing, rear diffusor and a Concorde jet silhouetted in black carbon fibre on the roof while the side strakes are made of milled aluminium.

The cabin is similarly packed with aviation-themed notes such as embroidered Concorde logos on the seats, Mach Meter graphics embossed on the driver’s-side sun visor and paddle shifters made from titanium taken from old Concorde compressor blades. Even the floor mats bear patterns designed by Sir Terence Conran – the same designer who revamped the Concorde’s interior design in 2001.

The DBS Superleggera isn’t fast enough to break the speed of sound but you wouldn’t call it slow either what with its twin-turbo 5.2-litre V12 producing 715 horses and 900Nm of torque. It has a top speed of 340kph and goes from 0-100kph in just 3.4 seconds.
