Future Aston Martin DBS will deliver 550 HP

We know already that Aston Martin is working on a new generation DBS and today, AutoCar is offering a few more details on the upcoming sports car that has been announced to be "a huge revamp of today’s DBS ." The new version will get more aggressive styling, a higher-quality interior, and more power in order to make it a stronger competitor for the recently announced Ferrari F12 Berlinetta .

The new Aston Martin DBS will feature an exterior design inspired by the One-77 supercar with thin plastic panels, a more pronounced rear wheel arch, and more side detailing. At the front, the new DBS will feature a wider grille and a distinctive airdam chin spoiler.

Under the hood, Aston Martin will place a 6.0-liter V12 engine that will deliver a total of 550 HP - an increase of over 40 HP over the current generation. The engine will be mated to a new eight-speed ZF automatic transmission.

The new generation Aston Martin DBS will be revealed at Pebble Beach in August 2012.
