Aston Martin rolls out DBS onto luxury sports car market

Aston Martin revealed its DBS luxury sports car at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance last week.

Taking a starring role as the event featured marque, the company showed off the vehicle which has a top speed of 191 mph and reaches 62 mph from zero in 4.3 seconds.

Built at the firm’s global headquarters in Warwickshire, the car is "the ultimate expression of Aston Martin’s engineering and technical ability" according to chief executive officer Dr Ulrich Bez.

The company added that the vehicle will go on sale during the first quarter of 2008 while prices will be announced at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2007.

"The DBS delivers the complete driving experience and bridges the gap between our road and track cars – the DB9 and DBR9," he said.

The long association between James Bond and Aston Martin began in Goldfinger – Ian Fleming’s seventh novel to feature the secret agent – when he drove a DB mark III.
