2008 Aston Martin DBS Revealed…510 Horsepower…James Bond Your Car is Here!

Aston Martin is going to reveal the awesome DBS coupe. It is officially being unveiled at the Pebble Beach d’Elegance this week and will go on sale in the first quarter of next year. Anyone that saw the latest Bond flick, Casino Royale will recognize this sweet car.

The production DBS will have a 510 horsepower version of the DB9’s 6-liter V-12. (DB9 only has 450hp) A six-speed manual is standard (no auto for the wussies) and helps the car achieve 0-62mph in 4.3 seconds. The DBS has a top speed of 191 mph.

In addition to the great power under the hood, the DBS is the first Aston Martin fitted with carbon ceramic brakes to help keep the car under control. An Adaptive Damping System with five different settings to adjust the car’s ride and handling characteristics is also a new feature.

Stay tuned for the full press release and official photos.
