Default Aston Martin DBS in Mag, perfection beyond belief - ADDED: Real sighting pictures!

I just went to borders after lunch to browse through magazines and saw the new 911 Turbo tested and GT3 tested in EVO and some other magazines, but then i saw some magazine , i forgot the name which had pictures of the car and OH MY GOD!! it is beyound beautiful, the lines are perfect, the interior is plush and it will replace the vanquish, they called the vanquish fat and slow and this flagship will be agile and light as compared to it and it will be based on DB9 with lots of carbon fiber and awesome tweed interior...I am in love..sorry no pics, may be I will buy the mag, scan the pictures and post and if someone else can do it before me, please go and fetch the mag...

LOVED THE CAR!!

would have that over the F430 and gallardo and even the 599, it might not be as quick as the 599 but its drop dead gorgeous..all you would have to do is, throw in a super charger or something for 20-30k and you have a car which is better looking, more passionate, plusher interior and quicker than the 599..

Aston Martins are without doubt, the most beautifully crafted cars. Even their GT car (DBR 9) is a head turner.

The Aston Martin DBS is based on their DBR9 race car in LeMans. It is somewhere in between a DB9 and a DBR9. The sexy beast has a 6.0L V12 producing over 500 hp.
It's much lower than the DB9 and has a couple of cosmetic changes from the DB9. At present it'll be displayed only in the mercury silver colour.
No doubt it's a Bond car. Apparently, Aston Martin's test driver has commented that Daniel Craig is the best driver he has ever seen after going for a test drive with him.

The source of information is Top Gear's website. Although some James Bond fansites also have the information.
It's quite obvious that I wasn't there with Daniel Craig when the test driver commented him.

What a coincedence...

just saw a spanking new DB9 in the my office parking lot today...

the best bit....the number plate read "MI 6"

i was gonna take a picture with my phone...but didn't as there were a few people there due to office rush...(didn't wanna look needy, stepping out of a GTR myself)

will get some sneaky shots when i see it again....
