"The Aston Martin DBS was a grand tourer based on the DB9 and replaced the 2004 Vanquish S as the flagship model. The DBS name had been used once before on their 1967-72 grand tourer coupé and the modern car was officially unveiled at the 2007 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance on 16th August 2007. The convertible version of the DBS, dubbed the DBS Volante, was unveiled at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show, followed this time by the 2009 Concours d'Elegance. The DBS Volante included a motorised retractable fabric roof controlled by a button in the centre console which could fold into the compartment located behind the seats in just 14 seconds. Impressively the roof could also be opened or closed even at speeds up to 30mph. Other features included rear-mounted six-speed manual or optional six-speed ‘Touchtronic 2’ automatic gearbox and a Bang & Olufsen BeoSound DBS in-car entertainment system with 13 speakers. The DBS was selected to be the service issue Aston Martin for the 2006 James Bond movie Quantum of Solace and stared in a record breaking action sequence towards the end of the film and an exhilarating opening scene for Daniel Craig's second outing as Bond.
This stunning low mileage DBS Volante offered in Silver is enough to make any Aston enthusiast go weak at the knees the moment the glorious V12 engine roars into life. Benefitting from a full service history, two sets of keys, a V5C registration document and an MoT test certificate valid until October 2022, the odometer on this Aston Martin has only just clicked past 8,000 miles. Boasting a huge specification, the DBS, especially with the roof down, looks and sounds fabulous and is sure to be a future classic with many describing it as the next Aston Martin for the serious collector or investor. This fine, low mileage example should pay generous dividends in years to come and while you wait why not imagine yourself as a suave 007.
