I first saw the Aston Martin DBS at the 2011 Houston Auto Show. Star Motor Cars in Houston showed off several Aston Martin and Lotus cars. Star Motor showed of the DBS and the DBS Volante at the 2012 Houston Auto Show. It is a sight to behold. It is nice to see a James Bond car up close. The cars were roped off, so I could not touch or get into the DBS. The Volante is one of the most beautiful convertibles I have ever seen.
The DBS is powered by a 6.0L V12 connected to a six-speed manual. The engine produces 510 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque. It goes from 0 to 60 mph in 4.2 seconds and reaches a top speed of 191 mph. It is fast, but there are faster and quicker grand tourers out there. Prices start at $273,104. It is a little expensive.
Final Thoughts: It is a beautiful car. This is one of the most stylish cars on the market. It is fast, but there are faster cars out there. This is a car for cruising, not for racing. It combines style with performance. I love the styling on the modern Aston Martins. Aston Martin was once in financial trouble, but now it are flourishing in a tough economy.
