Model History:

The modern Aston Martin DBS is a British high performance GT sports car version of the DB9. The DBS replaced the 2004 Vanquish S as the flagship of the marque, and was officially unveiled at the 2007 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in August 2007.

The DBS is equipped with 6.0L V12 engine – the same engine used in the DBR9 and DBRS9 racing cars, albeit with extensive modifications – producing 510bhp at 6500 rpm and 570 N⋅m (420 lb⋅ft) of torque @ 5750 rpm with a compression ratio of 10.9:1. The engine also includes an active bypass valve which opens and lets more air into the engine above 5500 rpm resulting in increased performance, propelling the car from 0-62 mph in just 4.3 seconds with a maximum speed of 191 mph.

To keep the weight as low as possible, Aston Martin has made extensive use of carbon fibre throughout the car. The bonnet, boot, front wings, door opening surrounds and the boot compartment are all made of carbon fibre. The result is a 30kg weight reduction from a regular DB9. The car is also fitted with a carbon fibre splitter at the front wings to increase handling and a carbon fibre rear diffuser to increase high-speed stability.

The carbon ceramic brake discs shave a significant 12.5kg from the unsprung weight. At the front, there are 398mm ventilated and drilled brakes with 6-piston alloy monobloc calipers. At the back, there are 360mm ventilated and drilled brakes with 4-piston alloy monobloc calipers.

Equipment:

6-Speed Manual, Carbon Ceramic Brakes, 20″ A/M 20 Spoke Alloys, Black Callipers, Casino Royale Paint, Obsidian Black Interior with Red Contrast Stitching, Electric Memory Sports Seats, Silver Facias, Warm Charcoal Seatbelt, Satellite Navigation, AM/FM Radio, CD Player, Bluetooth, iPod/USB Input, PDC Parking Distance Control, Cruise Control, Climate Control, Xenon Headlights, Auto Dimming Rear View Mirror.

Exterior:

Finished in an exclusive shade of Casino Royale Metallic, the intricate intakes and defined line of the DBS feel timeless. Chrome details accentuate the Astons’ sumptuous curves whilst clear lights at the rear make sure the elegant shilouette remains undisturbed.

Having covered just 11k miles from new, the condition of the car is fantastic and as with Aston paint the depth of the metallic flake is ubundent and intense producing a wonderful deep sparkle in what sometimes can be a subdued colour choice.

Interior:

Upon entering the cabin the heady mix of elegance and opulence is immediately apparent. The figure hugging sports seats show in good condition, swathed in luxurious leather and alcantara with red stitching. In true Aston Martin fashion, drivability and performance were paramount in the design of this Grand Tourer, with all driver controls perfectly placed to maximise driver comfort and usability.

Engine & Transmission:

At the heart of the DBS is a thunderous, naturally aspirated 6.0L V12, a true engineering marvel offering unparalleled drama, emotion and auditory joy when compared to the turbocharged units of later models. Paired to a 6-Speed manual gearbox the Aston becomes one of the most engaging grand tourers available to date.

Having covered minimal mileage, mechanically this DBS presents without fault and has been diligently serviced throughout its life by the supplying dealer, the last of which carried out less than 100 miles ago. The car is also covered by an extended Aston Martin warranty until May 2021.

Wheels, Tyres & Brakes:

The unique Aston Martin 20 spoke aluminium alloys contrast perfectly against the Storm Black bodywork and present in perfect condition. The wheels are wrapped in a brand new set of Pirelli P Zero tyres front and rear.

Aston Martin provided the DBS with a carbon ceramic braking system as standard, offering further weight reductions and relentless braking performance time after time. Brake discs and pads on this example are in perfect condition and show plenty of life.
