Aston Martin DBS
The first Aston Martin DBS was originally produced between 1967-1972 by Aston Martin Lagonda Limited and in 1969, the DBS was featured in the James bond movie ‘On Her Majesty’s Secret Service”; despite the fact that it was a Bond car that had almost no gadgets, it is still considered an icon in popular culture.
The new Aston Martin is a high performance GT that has made its first public appearance in 2007 at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance and it replaced the 2004 Vanquish S model. To follow tradition, the DBS has also been featured in the 2006 James Bond movie, Casino Royale. We see the DBS as the ultimate spy-car that is bound to offer you an adventurous ride, here at www.limohire-sportcarhire.co.uk, and since it was unveiled we were amazed by its “bad boy” looks (too many Bond movies maybe?).
When it comes to the Aston Martin DBS, there have been quite a few debates concerning its performances and whether it’s a fair replacement of the Vanquish.
The DBS has a 5.9-litre 48-valve (4 valves per cylinder) V12 engine (delivering 510hp at 6500rpm) with a 6-speed manual or automatic transmission. It goes from 0 to100 km/h in 4.3 seconds and reaches a top speed of 307 km/h. Another thing that increases the engine’s performance is the active bypass valve which above 5500 rpm opens and lets more air into the engine. The car easily adapts to the road and weather conditions due to its Adaptive Damping System (ADS) which alters the suspension. The overall level of handling of the DBS is increased thanks to the VH (vertical horizontal) structure and 85% of the car’s weight (quite light because of the carbonfibre which was used for the bonnet, the boot, the front wings and the door opening surrounds) is kept between the wheelbase.
If you think that the Aston Martin DBS looks amazing from the inside, we can assure you that the interior is equally grand.
