Ever since the classic DBS’s introduction in 1967, it has been a star on the screen starting with its role in the 1969 James Bond film, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. It then showed up in modern 007 flicks like Casino Royale. The DBS started out life as a 4.0 Liter 325 HP grand tourer and was reborn in 2007 as an upgraded DBR9 powered by a 6.0 Liter V12 and a front end filled with more vents than the race car. With its unique design and pure performance potential, the coach built super car was designed to fill the gap between road and track offering the ultimate expression of Aston Martin’s engineering and technical ability. The DBS offers pure performance without compromise. At $265,000 the rear wheel drive 510 HP hand built super car is capable of accelerating from 0 to 60 MPH in four seconds flat and will reach a top speed of 196 MPH. The DBS can be distinguished from the DB9 by its deeper front spoiler, extra-wide intake, large rear spoiler, 20" wheels, and wider rear track.
