Product Overview

Aston Martin DBS V12 is a mid-size luxury coupe in production from 2007 to 2012. It was powered by a naturally-aspirated V12 engine that displaced 5.9 liters. Both a manual transmission and an auto one are available.
The successor to the original Vanquish, the DBS was based on the DB9. While its engine is only marginally more powerful (which was adopted by the DB9 after the production run of the DBS stopped), the vehicle has some unique body panels and is more luxuriously appointed.
The V12 DBS is best known for its appearance in the Bond movie, Casino Royale.
