Overview

The DBS is defined by its performance, which starts with a 510-horse 6-liter V12 engine mounted up front. It can be had with either a traditional 6-speed transmission or a 6-speed Touchtronic automatic with manual override. With a lightweight aluminum and carbon fiber body, the DBS is capable of a maximum 191 mph and 0-62 mph in 4.3 seconds. And with 85% of its total weight between the axles, the low center of gravity allows for precise control and stability.
2016,
2016,The chassis sits on 20" wheels with carbon fiber fenders wrapped around them. The panels of the body have been sculpted to move air toward the engine and braking system for cooling. The DBS uses an Active Damping System to adjust the car's ride and handling, from a softer, cushier experience to a stiffer, sportier feel. The "Track" mode automatically sets the suspension for taking turns at speed. The DBS also features Dynamic Stability Control for maximum traction, and carbon ceramic brakes deliver shorter braking distances with lighter materials.
2016,
2016,The interior features carbon fiber pieces, like the door handles, for further weight reduction, but the upholstery remains high-grade, hand-stitched leather. And because no part of an Aston should be described as "run of the mill", the "key" is actually what Aston Martin calls an "Emotion Control Unit." It slides into a slot in the dash, near the push-button gear selection panel, and starts the car when pushed flush with the starter button.
2016,
2016,The new Volante convertible shares all aspects of the coupe -- plus an automatic cloth top that lowers in 14 seconds at speeds of up to 30 miles per hour and folds away under its tonneau cover. The convertible is only available as a 4-seater, while the hardtop comes with either two or four seats.
2016,
2016,The Aston Martin DBS Carbon Black Special Edition features an exclusive Carbon Black metallic paint and Obsidian Black leather interior with silver stitching. Deliveries of the limited edition will begin in summer 2010.
