Boy O Boy ! Pics was nothing in comparison to the actual roar of the very 'nasal' V12 mated to the 6sp M Tranny. My driver ran in from outside hearing the sound when i viewed it in my 7.1. Check it out !

Then there are the occasional cars with a 'tin can' exhaust. You gotta know your exhaust sounds there.

Wow a DBS. The AM would by far be the classiest car in your garage. I know the lp and the other exotics would probably cost more , but AM all the way for its class.

Top Gear had laid hands on the Aston Martin DBS a year back. In Jeremy's review, he literally places it head-to-head against the DB9 (prettier and less costly) and the Vanquish S (faster in a drag race), and for a time, I almost think he's disappointed in James Bond's latest company car. But as the segment concludes, he has an epiphany of sorts, explaining that its the best car he's driven this year and detailing what makes it special. Then the Stig takes the wheel and does his thing.
So Karan when you get your hands on the DBS, plz let us know how does it fair against the DB9 and if it is worth the extra bucks.
Can't wait for next thursday
Love the Power. Beauty. Soul.

I definitely like top gear better than fifth gear.But if you really want a frank opinion and a true review on any car, I feel we should ask Tiff.
HE loved the car.

I'm also a TG person and diehard Clarkson fan. But in this case i really liked Tiff Nedell's(fifth gear) video.

I do agree on that but, have you noticed the rev needle goes anti-clockwise in this and that part leaves me confused.

Me too a bg fan of jc but tiff gives better reviews and is definitely more talented as a driver.

The needles do go anti clockwise. Really cool.

When i saw that on TG, i thought Jeremy downshifted to accelerate harder.
Seriously , it is the best looking speedo amongst supercars.
