Menacingly sleek and packing a punch, much like 007 himself, the DBS was to star in a record breaking action sequence towards the end of the film and an exhilarating opening scene for Craig's second outing as Bond in <em>Quantum of Solace</em>.</p><p> </p><p>With a top speed of 191 miles per hour and a zero to sixty time of 4.3 seconds the DBS was the raffish younger bother to its rather sedate older sibling, the DB9, within the Aston family at the time. Overall, the weight of the two-seat DBS was 65kg lower than the DB9 helped by the lighter weight semi-aniline interior leather and even the standard carpets were made of a lighter weight fibre.</p><p> </p><p>The conventional key was ditched and replaced by a polished sapphire ECU that was inserted into a slot in the starter button. The centre console was changed with a cast metal surround, new graphics and turned aluminium heater knobs. The UK launch price was £161,147 with many buyers after 2009 ticking the option box for the automatic Touchtronic 2 transmission at a further cost of £2,000.</p><p> </p><p>This rare manual car was delivered on the 1<sup>st</sup> March 2009 in Storm Black with Chancellor Red inserts in the seat to compliment the black leather and "piano black" wood interior. Our vendor purchased the car in June 2016 from his friend, the car's third owner, who had upgraded to the new Vanquish.  An international IT consultant, our vendor is now permanently based in the Netherlands and has just bought the left-hand drive version of this car and offers it reluctantly for sale.</p><p> </p><p>The car been appropriately serviced at the following intervals:</p><p> </p><p>26/01/2011    4,292 miles at Stratstone Aston Martin, Derby</p><p>27/10/2011    6,082 miles at Stratstone Aston Martin, Cardiff</p><p>19/11/2012    10,401 miles at Stratstone Aston Martin, Stourbridge</p><p>16/12/2013    15,275 miles at Bamford Rose Aston Martin Specialists</p><p>08/12/2014    18,991 miles at Bamford Rose Aston Martin Specialists</p><p>12/02/2015    19,344 miles at Bamford Rose Aston Martin Specialists</p><p>06/04/2016    21,781 miles at Bamford Rose Aston Martin Specialists</p><p>31/03/2017    23,633 miles at Bamford Rose Aston Martin Specialists</p><p>09/04/2018    24,886 miles at Bamford Rose Aston Martin Specialists</p><p> </p><p>Whilst in our vendor's care, the car has benefitted from the installation of front and rear cameras, an iPhone integration kit by Aston Installations, new front carbon ceramic disks and pads with new rear ceramic brake pads, four new tyres, with less than 400 miles since fitting, and two new rear lights clusters supplied by Aston to correct the common issue of condensation build up.</p><p> </p><p>Presented to auction with an odometer reading of a shade under 25,000 miles, book packs, a history file bursting with maintenance receipts and an MOT until April 2019.</p><p> </p><p>Please note that that private registration number featured is not included in the sale and retention proceedings have begun.</p>
