For Live out your James Bond daydreams with the car that he prefers as his latest set of wheels. Carbon-fibre body panels save weight, while an uprated V12 engine give the Aston Martin DBS the pace to keep up with 007.
Against Some would argue the DBS is simply a tricked up DB9, even if Aston says otherwise. You have to look hard to spot the differences, but look closer and you'll also find it only has two front airbags as standard.
Just when you thought Aston couldn't get any cooler, along comes the Aston Martin DBS to prove that Britannia can still rule the faves. It's marvellously fast, rides and handles better than a DB9, and looks mint.

Aston Martin's mission with the DBS was to make a car that James Bond would be pleased to drive. They have succeeded in spades and, even though the DBS shares a lot of its looks with its significantly less pricey sister, it's a world apart when it comes to dynamic ability.
Where the DB9 is an MI5 pen-pusher, the DBS is a full-blown secret agent in comparison when it comes to taking out corners. The ride is much more controlled and accomplished to let the suspension get on with the job of serving up superb grip.
Even so, the DBS is refined enough to take on long trips without leaving its occupants deafened. However, you'll need to send the luggage on ahead for any holidays as space is at a premium in the DBS, and we'd like more airbags as standard. Huge running costs come with this territory and the list price is a huge jump up from the DB9's.
The Aston DBS is all you'd expect of 007’s car. It's massively fast, handles any situation with calm aplomb and always makes you feel special. But so it should at this price.
