Aston Martin described the car succinctly: "DBS is not of the understated elegance of the DB9 nor the youthful agility of the V8 Vantage. It is explosive power in a black tie and has its own unique character which will equal that of James Bond." Beneath the flowing lines of the lightweight bodywork, the DBS's components were honed to create an exhilarating driving experience.
DBS was unveiled to an appreciative audience on the elegantly manicured lawns of Pebble Beach in California during the world-famous 2007 Concours d'Eélegance, where Aston Martin was the featured marque.
With over fourteen individual models or derivatives having borne the 'DB' marque, this famous moniker has adorned some of Aston Martin's most iconic cars, a badge that signifies engineering excellence and the highest quality of craftsmanship.
