Arrow 2008 Aston Martin DBS (Pics!!)

SIMPLY MIND BLOWING ->

Aston Released the details on its DBS. I have to say and i'm sure all you folks agree that Aston has a seriously good car design team. I got these details and world class Wallpapers as well from autoblog.
Engine -: 6.0 Litre V12 = 510 horses, 420 lb-ft of torque
extensive use of carbon fiber for bodywork,
weight-saving mentality went into the passenger cabin as well = Lighter rug fibers, semi-aniline leather, and even minor details like carbon fiber door pulls all conspire to minimize weight without sacrificing luxury.
Truly a luxury sports car and really truly sex on wheels.
Simply jaw-dropping looks. Feast your eyes on these pics and if you regain consciousness Your opinions please.

p.s. these are just a few pics. There's LOADS of these on Autoblog.com and they're killer i tell ya. ENJOYYYYYYYYYYYYY

Oh and check this out. The "ornamental" key-fob goes straight in to the Start button it self and when inserted, the button glows red. Pic below. Ridiculously beautiful.

Whoa...... look at the lines and the dash. Add to it a motor that growls oh so nicely and you have a perfect recipe. DELICIOUS!

I went to a watch store next to my office and enquired about a beautiful watch with Aston Martin emblazoned on the leather strap. The sales girl took it out and said this is official Aston Martin watch and costs only $10,000 dollars.

I think I will concentrate on making enough money to buy that watch first.

I owned an Aston Martin 1972 model---the same one used by James Bond---just kidding, guys, it was a toy version .
Only thing so great about the battery operated toy was that it was a real replica of 007's car---with machine guns popping out, a bullet proof shield at the back, tyre cutters and changing number plates. I saw the movie a few years later, and was surprised to note that even the registration numbers matched with those in the toy
