Description

Launched in 2007,Aston's production flagshipwas a potent super-GT with a real edgeImproved breathing andhigher compression lifted the output of the 5.9-litre V12 to a formidable 510bhpFinished in gleaming Storm Black. Optioned with the Touchtronic 2 transmissionSupplied to our vendor by official Aston Martin dealer, October 2017.Less than 2,000 miles since22,000 miles (atoc) supported by the service history. Most recent service at 21,104 milesComplete with the original maintenance schedule, Owner's handbook, service invoices etc.In terms of its styling, the DBS was clearly a development of the DB9 but with the additions of a carbon fibre front splitter and carbon fibre rear diffuser among aerodynamic tweaks.The aluminium chassis is known as the 'VH Generation 2' platform, 'VH' referring to its vertical and horizontal adaptability andstate-of-the-art manufacturing techniques were employed in making the aluminium/composite body, which was robotically assembled using a combination of self-piercing rivets and adhesive.Itwas powered by a development of the 5.9-litre, 48-valve, V12 engine found in other Aston Martin models, producing 510bhp initially, an output sufficient to propel the aerodynamic Coupeto a top speed of 190mphwith 60mph attainable from a standing start in just4.3 seconds. The aluminium engine was mounted as far back as possible in the chassis, whilstthe transmission/final drive was combined in a rear transaxle, resulting in 85% of the car's mass being sited between the axles offeringa perfect 50/50 front/rear weight distribution, with commensurate benefits to handling, roadholding, and controllability. The majority of cars were ordered with thesix-speed Touchtronic 2paddle-shift semi-automatic and, with the arrival of the fabric-roofed Volante in 2009, the DBS settled comfortably into its role as a Super-GTwith a sporting edge.This delightful example isone of only 32 UK DBS finished in Storm Black. It's fitted with a Touchtronic 2paddle-shift andwas specified from new withObsidian Black (20M) leather with contrasting Red (N3497) stitching to environment one and outer seat panels, a Piano Black centre console, bright grille and bonnet meshes and a Bang & Olufsen Hi-Fi with BlueTooth. It was originally registered RX10 ENR but now wearsXX07 DBS and has been generously treated to Williams Ceramic paint and upholstery protection.In addition to theOwner's Handbook andservice invoices (most recent at 21,104 miles) etc., it's supplied with the original Aston Martin factory build sheet rarely supplied or retained with thecar's history.A well maintained and hugely desirable example of Aston's ballistic convertible.
