Aston Martin unveils DBS Carbon models

Aston Martin's presence at the Frankfurt Motor Show is rather limited, but one of the models taking centre stage is a new addition to the DBS family. It's called the DBS Carbon Edition, and it's a continuation of the Carbon Black that was introduced in 2009. Now, however, you have a few more options with regards to the exterior colour of your spy mobile. The Aston Martin DBS was available in all colours... literally all of them, meaning you could only get it in black. This time around your choices have expanded, and Aston Martin is offering the new DBS Carbon Edition in Flame Orange or... Read More

    Spy Shots: Aston Martin DBS/DB9 successor caught at the Ring preparing for Villa d'Este debut

    As much as it pains us to say it, the current core range from Aston Martin has grown a little stale. But fret not: a new model is just around the corner. Snapped undergoing testing at the Nürburgring in this latest batch of spy shots is what looks to be a new and nearly complete V12 GT from Gaydon. Code-named AM 310, it could be a successor to ...

    1336939200

    If you want to get your hands on the Ultimate version of the Aston Martin DBS, you'd better act fast, and come with cash in hand. The DBS Ultimate, as you may recall, is Gaydon's way of saying goodbye to what has been (notwithstanding the comings and goings of the One-77 and V12 Zagato) its mainstay flagship model for five years now. It's distinguished ...

    Typically when an automaker releases a new car, we see it in a press release (whether embargoed for later release or not) before it pops up on their public-domain website. But not this time. The car in question is the Aston Martin DBS Ultimate, a vehicle whose arrival we were anticipating. Like the Ultimate edition of the Vanquish that came before it, ...

    Featured: Aston Martin to offer Ultimate Edition before replacing the DBS
    1335567600

    In the earlier part of the last decade, the king of the Aston Martin hill was a model called the Vanquish. More muscular than the DB7 it superseded, the Vanquish was offered first with a 450-horsepower V12, and then as the Vanquish S with 514 hp on tap. The flagship model from Newport Pagnell was replaced in 2007 by the DBS, but before it went the way of ...

    If Aston Martin wants to make a sexy commercial, there probably doesn't need to be that much thought involved. All the ultra luxury brand needs to arouse the typical auto enthusiast is a collage of shots of the company's Vantage, Rapide or DB9. That didn't stop Aston Martin from stocking its latest video creation with women, however, but it's not what ...

    Report: Aston Martin to launch updated DBS late next year
    1310677260

    The Aston Martin DBS has only been on the market now for five years, but the DB9 on which it's based has been around for eight. That's a fairly long life-cycle for any car, but it seems the DB9/DBS will have to soldier on a bit longer. Its replacement – based on new architecture – isn't due to arrive until 2015 at the earliest. In the ...
