If you watched the James Bond film Casino Royale, you’ll remember the first time you laid eyes on the Aston Martin DBS coupe. The most famous fictional British spy spooled up the 6-liter V12, based upon the unit found in the DBRS9 racecar, and charged off in hot pursuit of the evil Le Chiffre, only to crest a small hill and find a beautiful woman tied up and laying in the middle of the road. Only James Bond could survive the resulting cartwheeling crash that utterly destroyed the svelte coupe. It was a shame the Aston had to take one on the chin, because the DBS is one of the most beautiful cars on the road. In the grand Aston Martin tradition, the extremely limited-production DBS combines an unparalleled handcrafted interior with serious performance credentials. In case you didn’t think the DBS was unique enough already, the key fob is topped with polished stainless steel and finished with sapphire crystals. And you thought super-spies preferred to keep a lower profile.
The DBS is equipped with Aston Martin's 5.9-litre AM11 V12 engine with four valves per cylinder. The same engine is also used in the DBR9 and DBRS9 racing cars albeit with extensive modifications.
The engine of the DBS produces 510 bhp at 6,500 rpm and 570 N⋅m of torque at 5,750 rpm with a compression ratio of 10.9:1. The engine also includes an active bypass valve which above 5,500 rpm opens and lets more air into the engine resulting in increased performance and propels the car from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 4.3 seconds and has a maximum speed of 191 mph (307 km/h) and 183 mph (295 km/h) with Touchtronic 2 transmission.
