Aston Chief Executive Officer, Dr Bez, said: »The DBS is the expression of Aston MartinВ’s and technical ability. It offers performance without compromise.»

at home on a twisting mountain as on the open road, the DBS is a true The Aston Martin DBS is a 6.0-litre V12 race-bred, two-seater shaped by the demands of high performance, an exquisite interior that beautifully hand-finished materials the very latest in performance

The shared powerplant continues the link between Aston road and race cars, as the six-cylinder engine used in the also powered the DB4, DB5 and DB6 in the and 60s.

As with all current Martins, the engine is hand-assembled at Martin’s dedicated engine in Cologne, Germany.

As an option the DBS may be equipped with developed lightweight seats North America). These a carbon-fibre and Kevlar composite that provides crucial saving by allowing the structure of the to be incredibly slim: between and 3mm. Overall, the trimmed provides a weight saving of

The lightweight seats are a fixed but can be adjusted for rake as well as fore and aft.

As with the DB9 and DBR race cars, the Martin DBS benefits from the characteristics of the VH architecture. The VH underframe of pressed, extruded and cast components, bonded together to an immensely strong underlying This structure means weight is kept to a minimum, the front-mid mounted engine and mounted transaxle ensuring a perfect weight distribution: 85% of the weight is positioned within its

Deliveries of the DBS are expected to commence quarter one 2008, with to be confirmed at the Frankfurt Motor in September.
