Aston Martin DBS

The Aston Martin DBS took over from the Aston Martin Vanquish as the top of the range car in the Aston Martin portfolio, unless of course you count the limited edition (77 of them) Aston Martin One-77? No, neither do we. The DBS was unveiled to critical acclaim on 16th August 2007 at the councours d’elegance at Pebble Beach. The first customer cars were delivered as soon as early 2008.

The Aston Martin DBS is based on the Aston Martin DB9 but looks more aggressive while still managing to keep the beautiful lines of it’s (slightly) little brother. Looks are not the only thing the DBS shares with the DB9. Under the bonnet is an orchestra of 12 cylinders in a V measuring in at 5.9 litres. This is the same unit as in the DB9, and in the DBS cracks out an ear splitting 510 bhp. When the DBS starts up it is simply one of the most impressive sounds in the production car world.
Make no mistake, the Aston DBS is a true supercar with lots of power and torque flooding from the front arriving at the rear, which if you’re not ready for it will lead to lots of sideways fun, fun that is had while sitting in one of the most luxurious interiors in a performance car.
If you get chance to climb inside one of these monsters and take it for a spin, don’t turn it down as your experience will be truly memorable.
