Those of the PistonHeads persuasion caught a pre-production Aston Martin DBS near the autobahn, where it sat during a pie-and-chips break in between top-speed testing sessions. Apparently the James Bond fave is headed out of Q's workshop this October. Aston hasn't said outright that it's replacing the Vanquish, but most Astonites agree the DBS will assume flagship status. The proto-DB9 caught by spies was wearing DBRS9 badging, which may have thrown casual observers off the trail, but that body kit and 20" alloys are a knock-on giveaway.
