Introduced at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance as Aston Martin’s new flagship in 2007, the DBS retained similar looks to the DB9 yet was visibly more masculine and muscular in form, hinting at its increased power under the bonnet.
A direct yet more gentlemanly competitor to Ferrari’s 599 GTB, the DBS pulled at enthusiasts’ heartstrings from the moment it was announced, and it was arguably one of the most desirable cars that money could buy when it was new. Featuring on the silver screen as James Bond’s car of choice in both Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace, the DBS’s place was cemented in Aston Martin and movie history, becoming a must-have for any Aston Martin collector and a dream car for James Bond fans around the world.
BACKGROUND AND HISTORY:
The Aston Martin DBS was a grand tourer based on the DB9 and replaced the 2004 Vanquish S as the flagship model.
The DBS name had been used once before on their 1967-72 grand tourer coupé and the modern car was officially unveiled at the 2007 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance on 16 August 2007, followed by the more traditional 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show.
The DBS was selected to be the service issue Aston Martin for the 2006 James Bond movie Quantum of Solace and stared in a record breaking action sequence towards the end of the film and an exhilarating opening scene for Daniel Craig's second outing as Bond.
