Aston Martin is intensely preparing their new DBS for its official launch and in the past few days, the future DBS was spotted running a very quick lap around the Nürburgring with its sticky Pirelli tires.

According to our spy photographers, the sports car was very fast! That speed comes from its previously used 6.0-liter V-12 engine delivering somewhere between 550-600 HP. Add that to the fact that it was built on a lighter chassis and extensive use of lightweight materials, and you have the recipe for a very successful - and fast - sports car!

As for the design of the DBS, Aston Martin clearly took inspiration from its One-77, visible on the front of the vehicle with its reshaped headlights. The rest of the design seems to be a direct evolution of the current DBS with sportier touches here and there. The rear of the vehicle was more refined with adjustments made to the rear bumper and exhaust.

Expect to see the new Aston Martin DBS launched at the 2012 Paris Auto Show this September.

It certainly seemed like it showed a spectacular performance there.

It’s good because DBS will already get familiar with Nurburgring.

It’s like it’s already practicing to run at the track that it will succeed some time later.

Well, it’s not surprising anymore; if one houses a V12 engine, which can deliver approximately 600 ponies, and is even built on light-weight materials, it’s already pretty much obvious that it would run at a high speed.
