Aston Martin DBS ImagesCars, Trucks & Vans
A high-performance 2 door, 2 seater GT sports car, the DBS is an upgraded, limited production version of the standard Aston Martin DB9. Seductively powerful and exquisitely finished, hire a flagship Aston Martin DBS to experience race-bred technology in the ultimate grand tourer.
The DBS’s V12 Engine
The DBS is equipped with a 6.0 litre 48-valve 5935 cc V12 engine that produces 510 horsepower (380 kW) at 6500 rpm and 570 N·m (420 lb·ft) of torque at 5750 rpm. The engine includes an active bypass valve, which above 5500 rpm increases performance. This combined with a compression ratio of 10.9:1, rockets the car from 0-100 km/h in 4.3 seconds, flying until 308 km/h.
The engine is controlled by a rear mid-mounted, six-speed manual transmission. Adaptive Damping System (ADS) automatically alters the suspension, adapting the car to your driving style and responding to varying road and weather conditions. Steering is accurate, the engine responsive and the brakes powerful. As with the DB9, a VH (vertical horizontal) structure provides strength and rigidity to the whole car for increased handling, responsiveness and great driver control.
A Sumptuous Interior
The interior is a blend of carbon fibre, leather, stainless steel and aluminium and is a fine example of English craftsmanship. It also features Bluetooth, a hard-drive-based navigation system and a 10-speaker Bang & Olufsen surround-sound audio system.
This beautiful muscular car with a wonderful sounding engine can be enjoyed as a coupe or convertible (DBS Volante), body styles providing an exhilarating performance combined with grand touring comfort.
