What do you guys think about the new DBS? Saw this thing back at the beginning of May down in Newport at a viewing and I was blown away. It looks so badass! My spot is secured and now just gotta finalize the spec. Anyone else on here getting one?

Should be approx 3700 lbs / 1690 kg. 0 to 60 in 3.2 or 3.4. Still a heavy brute, but should be a blast to drive with 720hp and 900 nm of torque!

Looks about a billion times better than the DB11.

Looks outrageous in some pics and only really good in others. And powertrain is now AMG? That should be a winner!

Iím a huge Aston fan...have had 3 in the past.
I guess Iím the only one who likes the older designs, such as the previous gen DBS.
Iíll have to reserve opinion until I see it in person.
Curious whatís the price of the new DBS and did they say what production numbers would be?

I really like the design but that interior doesnít do it for me, that NAV screen makes the whole lot look quite outdated.

OVI congrats on the order, I canít wait to see your final spec.

Ya the power now comes from an Aston tinkered and tuned AMG. Quite good i hear. Honestly I haven't even yet driven one of the new ones. When I head down to finalize the spec in newport Aston will give me their DB11 and a vantage to drive around for a couple days. So should be fun.

I completely see what your saying and honestly I kind of agree. That is why i am keeping my previous DBS as well. But in person this thing is just jaw dropping. When they pulled the covers off off of it I couldn't help to think that a previous generation DBS had a 3 way with a Zagato, and a DB11. I think you will quite love it in person, and the subtle details on the car are super cool. For me the details is what gets me every time with astons. As for numbers it will be in the 300k range and up depending on spec, and production I understand is only 200 in the first 2 years. That is what was said at the unveiling in May, however I need to get some updates on that as well. I am also understanding that they are starting to go the "exclusive" route and reserve flagships for previous customers only. I could be wrong though.

The nav screen is a bit underwhelming. I actually quite like my DBS' hidden flip screen better, however the functionality is cool and when everything else in the car is carbon, leather, alcantera, and brushed nickel or gold it didn't bother me too much. Thanks fortis. Will share the final official spec as soon as I wrap it up.

Couldn't agree more. No matter how many different angles I look at the DB11....it just does NOTHING for me.

Side profile view, the wheels look too large, that side vent is weird. Not a fan of the 2 tone looks on this one. Aston's still remind me of Russian egg dolls regardless of what their PR is spouting.

All the infotainment is Mercedes so I'm sure it will be good. I think the last gen car is prettier.

I agree. I was initially thinking of letting it go, but I just can't part ways. I love the Casino Royale color, it has such a timeless look to it. Mine is Storm Black.

They have really done a great job with their "2nd century" plan so far. Excited to see what next models they start bringing in. I know there will be some insane ones.
