Just in time for Skyfall, here’s the Aston Martin DBS…
Introduced in 2007 to replace the Vanquish, the DBS is a 5.9 litre 12-cylinder luxury GT automobile that brings an even more aggressive look, power, and handling to the line. The motor generates 510 horsepower and 420 ft-lbs of torque that takes the car from 0-60mph in 4.3 seconds and up to 191 mph (183 mph if through the Touchtronic2 transmission.) 85% of the car’s weight rests between the wheels and the hull of the vehicle is carbon fiber to reduce weight and aid in acceleration and fuel savings. The Adaptive Damping System, or ADS, tweaks the suspension for road/weather conditions.
The interior of a DBS is a blend of carbon fibre, alcantara leather, wood, stainless steel and aluminium surfaces. The seats both bear the DBS signature with an optional 2+2 seating configuration. The key is made from stainless steel and glass and is inserted into a special hole in the dashboard. It also has a 1000-watt Bang & Olufsen sound system with 13 speakers in 10 different locations throughout the cabin, as well as an integrated Apple iPod connector.
