Yes Please!!

We are delighted to announce that we now have two spectacular Aston DBS editions available. One available for  March ’08’ and the other for November ’58’ delivery.

 If you would like to enquire about either of these vehicles please call us 0845 643 2047 or email Astons@TheCarSpy.Net.

This is a VERY special Aston, that’s why it was the star of the latest Bond Film – Casino Royale!

The Aston Martin DBS is the replacement of the already utterly awesome Vanquish. Power comes from the heavily revised hand-made 6.0 V12 engine from the DBR9 racing car, tuned to deliver 510 bhp at 6500 rpm and 420 ft·lbf of torque at 5750 rpm. A curb weight of 3750 pounds, combined with the 510 bhp V12 help the DBS accelerate from 0-62 mph in 4.3 seconds and reach a top speed of 191 mph.

The DBS is fitted with new vented carbon ceramic brakes discs – a first for a road-going Aston Martin which reduces unsprung weight by 12.5 kg. The front wheels are fitted with 398 mm (15.7 in) diameter carbon ceramic brakes with six-piston calipers and 360 mm (14.2 in) diameter brakes with four-piston calipers at the rear. The double wishbone alloy suspension features an adaptive damper controlled suspension which uses two separate valves to set the dampers to five different positions, allowing instant adjustment of the car’s ride and handling characteristics.

Also included is a new hand finished interior with black lacquer, brushed alloy, semi-aniline leather and Alcantara as some of the materials. The car comes with a six speed manual transmission standard.
