Model News

The 2009 DBS is Aston Martin's new flagship sports car in the English sports car maker's lineup. It carries over from 2008 virtually unchanged. Base prices have increased by about $7000 over last year.


Value Writeup

At about twice the price of the V8 Vantage, Aston Martin's 2009 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.


Model Highlights

The 2009 DBS promises the best performance yet in a production Aston Martin model, with a zero-to-60-mph time of only 4.2 seconds and a top speed of 191 mph. All that go is courtesy 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.

Weight savings is paramount to the DBS's engineering. The sports car, which weighs just over 3,700 pounds, is built on a bonded aluminum body structure with carbon-fiber and Kevlar panels, and also featuring Brembo Carbon Ceramic Matrix brakes, which not only save more than 25 pounds but also offer improved stopping power.

An electronic damper system provides edgy performance on demand, through a Track mode, but there's also a Normal mode that affords more comfort on regular roads. The DBS's dynamic stability control (DSC) system also has a selectable Track mode, which allows enthusiastic driving near the limits of adhesion.

The DBS looks the part of a serious super car as well, with distinctive and functional hood vents, an aggressive front air splitter, plus a rear air diffuser and lots of aerodynamic work to help it stay stable at high speed.

Interior materials are more in line with grand touring coupes than some of the performance-above-everything exotic super cars that rank in the same exclusive price range. Seats are trimmed in soft leather and Alcantara, and the interior is trimmed in carbon fiber and chrome, or available wood veneer. The DBS has seating for two, with a small storage area behind the seats, plus a relatively roomy trunk.

At the center of the instrument panel is an ignition slot for the key fob, which glows red once the engine is started. Standard features include a 1000-watt BeoSound audio system with a built-in Bluetooth interface MP3 compatibility, and a hard-drive-based navigation system. Noteworthy options include satellite radio, an upgraded security system, personalized sill plaques, Piano Black interior trim, and 20-inch 10-spoke alloy wheels with a unique graphite finish.
