Alfardan Luxury Motors Co, the official dealer for Aston Martin in Qatar, has received one of four Aston Martin DBS Superleggera ‘Arabesque’ cars, exclusively created for the Middle East region to pay tribute to Arabian art and design.
The DBS Superleggera ‘Arabesque’ is a unique specification commissioned by Aston Martin Mena.
Showcasing new Arabic details and featuring lavish personalisation via Aston Martin’s bespoke service ‘Q by Aston Martin’, the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera 'Arabesque' incorporates traditional Middle Eastern elements within its signature design codes, according to a press statement.
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 20-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, the statement explains.
"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 of 725PS, 900Nm of torque, a top speed of 338kph and blistering acceleration that dispatches 0-100km/h in just 3.4 seconds," the statement adds.
The striking 'Arabesque' specification will be introduced to more Aston Martin models in the future – including the new DBX SUV.
