At about twice the price of the V8 Vantage, Aston Martin's 2008 DBS is a much more exclusive model that competes with some of the world's top grand-touring sports cars, such as the Porsche 911 Turbo and Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano. The DBS has the fastest acceleration of any production Aston Martin yet, as well as the brand's first-ever production application of carbon-ceramic brakes.
The 2008 DBS is Aston Martin's new flagship sports car, slotting above the now-discontinued V12 Vanquish in the English sports car maker's lineup.
The new DBS, which goes on sale in early 2008, promises the best performance yet in a production Aston Martin model, with a zero-to-62-mph time of only 4.3 seconds and a top speed of 191 mph. All that go is courtesy of a newly tuned version of Aston's familiar V12 engine from the DB9 and V12 Vanquish models--here 5.9 liters and making 510 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque. Power is delivered, with the help of a six-speed manual transmission and limited-slip rear differential, to the rear wheels.
