2008 Aston Martin DBS

Written by tonks on August 17, 2007

2008 Aston Martin DBSAston Martin is prepared to take the 2008 year by the horns and impress consumers with their enviable 2008 DBS. We were able to catch a glimpse of this new vehicle in March at the Geneva Auto Show. It will be taking the place of the Vanquish S, which was taken off the market in 2006, and will be the top performing Aston Martin that has been built.

Not surprisingly, Aston Martin officials wouldn’t give specific modifications to the DB9-based supercoupe other than what we can all see by looking at it, specifically, a deeper air dam, larger side vents, larger wheels and aerodynamic modifications all around, but they did confirm a significant increase in the V-12’s power output and a commensurate increase in overall performance capability.

You’ll be happy to know that the new DBS was used in the most recent Bond movie, ‘Casino Royale’ and was decked out with special spy gadgets, such as a glove box with a cut-out for Bond’s Walther pistol and various special switches sprinkled throughout the central control panel.

What better vehicle to get than a powerful ‘Bond’ car, even if it doesn’t have all those crazy spy gadgets. You can expect to see the DBS later this year, but don’t expect to see a convertible version.
