Aston Martin unveiled its new DBS luxury sports car at this weeks Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in California. The DBS is designed to bridge the gap between the DB9 and the DBPR9 race car. And as loaded with a 510-hp V12 engine the DBS is sure to bridge many gaps swiftly and with James Bond-esque style.
Do not think however that just because you are driving the DBS that you are James Bond. The new Aston Martin does not come stocked with little rockets or an ejection-rigged passenger seat. What it does come stocked with is a stout 6 liter that has a top speed of 191 and reaches 0-to-62 in 4.3 seconds. With ceramic break pads for stopping andÂ a 5-settingÂ Adaptive Dampening System to keep your 20inch wheels snug to the road the driver of a DBS has plenty of technology to allow him or her to feel comfortable in the drivers seat.
Adding to the peace of mind of the driver is the hand-crafted interior of the Aston Martin. There are luxury sedans that feel nice and then there are hand-crafted luxury autos that are built to completely spoil the occupants. The DBS would like to welcome you to some deep, rich spoiling.
After the Peeble Beach unveiling the next showing planned for the Aston Martin DBS will be the Frankfurt Auto Show. Then for those who are looking to slip into the seat of swift luxury you will get your chance in the early part of 2008. The DBS may not break any speed or sales records for Aston Martin but it sure has the potential to break a few hearts.
