Profile

The hugely anticipated DBS makes the leap from James Bond's transport on the silver screen to production reality in 2007. Aston Martin take a base DB9, lower it, widen it, and add a purposeful aerodynamic body kit. The natural beauty of the DB9 shape remains but now with the aggressive stance of the DB9R racecar. A 50bhp power hike and a high tech carbon and chrome interior complete the picture.

The 160,000 DBS was originally going to be limited to just 300 units, but production ended in 2012 after almost 3500 had been built.
