Aston Martin DBS RevealedS

Propers to Motor Authority for cracking open the Aston Martin DBS press kit and giving us a peek inside. It's the new Aston DBS — the latest J. Bond model — in all its digital cinematics ahead of its unveiling at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance this weekend. The new Aston owners say a supercar-grade V12, lifted from the DB9 and tweaked to kingdom come (510 hp), will propel the DBS to 60 mph in 4.3 seconds. That via a bypass valve that opens at 5500 rpm to goose the combustion chamber. Cogs will be exchanged by way of a six-speed manual, and a dose carbon fiber reduced weight to 3,737 pounds, which is143 less than the manny-tranny DB9. More to come. [Motor Authority]
