Footnotes

  • "Seductively powerful and exquisitely finished, DBS entered production in 2007 after a global reveal event at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. As a new flagship for the Aston Martin model range, DBS represented a synthesis of raw power, race-bred technology and design excellence." – Aston Martin.

    Reviving a famous model name from Aston Martin's past, the DBS was based on the DB9 and replaced the outgoing Vanquish S as the company's top-of-the-range supercar. Before the DBS entered production, the world got a mouth-watering preview when one appeared in 'Casino Royale' (2006), Daniel Craig's debut in the role of James Bond. The DBS also appeared in the opening sequence of 'Quantum of Solace', the follow up film released in 2008.

    In terms of its styling, the DBS was clearly a development of the DB9 but with the additions of a carbon fibre front splitter and carbon fibre rear diffuser among others. The aluminium chassis is known as the 'VH Generation 2' platform, 'VH' referring to its vertical and horizontal adaptability. State-of-the-art manufacturing techniques were employed in making the aluminium/composite body, which was robotically assembled using a combination of self-piercing rivets and adhesive.

    The DBS was powered by a development of the 5.9-litre, 48-valve, V12 engine found in other Aston Martin models, producing 510bhp initially, an output sufficient to propel the aerodynamic coupé to a top speed of 305km/h (190mph) in manual transmission form, with 60mph attainable from a standing start in a neck-snapping 4.3 seconds. The aluminium engine was mounted as far back as possible in the chassis, while the transmission/final drive was combined in a rear transaxle, resulting in 85% of the car's mass being sited between the axles and a perfect 50/50 front/rear weight distribution, with commensurate benefits to handling, roadholding, and controllability. Transmission options were a six-speed manual or six-speed 'Touchtronic 2' paddle-shift semi-automatic, while the striking 20" wheels were considered by some to be the best looking on any Aston Martin.

    Inside the DBS one finds the typically elegant, luxurious and supremely comfortable hand crafted interior traditionally associated with Aston Martin, featuring primarily wood and leather trim as well as the latest in modern technology, subtly deployed. Production ceased in 2012.

    A rare manual gearbox model, the Aston Martin DBS offered here was supplied through Stratstone Wilmslow Aston Martin on 24th March 2009 and has had one former keeper. The car is finished in Meteorite Silver while the interior is trimmed in Obsidian Black leather with contrasting silver stitching. Other noteworthy features include Piano Black interior woodwork, Charcoal seatbelts, and auto-dimming mirrors. Impeccably maintained, this Aston has been serviced by the supplying dealer nine times, the last occasion being in January 2018 when the car had covered 2,152 miles (the current odometer reading is 2,974 miles). The stamped service booklet is on file and the car also comes with its original books and tools, a V5C Registration Certificate, and current MoT. A wonderful opportunity to own one of these rare and collectible modern Aston Martins.
