Information About the Aston Martin DBS
A mix of a respectful nod to its scintillating past, with a forward thinking vision for the future, the Aston Martin DBS is the second of their Grand Tourer supercars to use this name, following the run of coupe models produced from 1967 - 1972, and was built at their production line in Gaydon, Warwickshire between 2008 and 2012.
Succeeding the 2004 Vanquish S, the DBS is powered on a Graziano six-speed manual transaxle and an optional Touchtronic 2 six-speed automatic transmission. It houses a 5.9 litre V12 engine, pumping out 500 bhp.
And with a wheelbase of 107.9 inches, and rear wheel drive layout, it offers superb traction and handling of the road for those who drive it. It’s speed stats are just as awe inspiring - accelerating from 0 - 60 mph in a scorchingly fast 4.4 seconds, it’s capable of a top speed of 200 mph.
Cool Facts About the Aston Martin DBS
Whilst the Aston Martin DBS wasn’t formally launched to the public until the annual Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance in the summer of 2007, it made its screen debut in the 2006 James Bond film Casino Royale - Daniel Craig’s first film in the role of Britain’s most trusted secret agent.
It appeared again during the chase sequence scene in its 2008 followup, Quantum of Solace, so it’s understandable that this is a popular choice for many of our Aston Martin DBS experience days.
A special Volante convertible model of the DBS was commissioned to mark the end of its production in 2012 - the DBS Volante Dragon 88, so named after the Chinese year of the dragon. Only 88 of these were ever produced, making it one of the rarest incarnations of the DBS.
