2010 Aston Martin DBS Review

The most famous James Bond car

Reviewed by Automotive on

In a Nutshell
The 2010 Aston Martin DBS is a luxurious exotic sports car available as a coupe and a convertible. Powered by a 6-liter V-12 engine, the DBS comes with either a six-speed manual or automatic transmission. The DBS can go zero to sixty in roughly 4.2 seconds, and it can go from sixty to zero mph in about 107 feet.

Known for power, speed, and luxury, the Aston Martin DBS's interior is designed with aluminum accents and carbon fiber elements, and a great stereo system as well. Fuel economy is rated in the 13 mpg city / 20 mpg highway range.

New for 2010

For 2010, the Aston Martin DBS adds a convertible body style called the Volante. In addition, the Bang & Olufsen sound system is now standard, while an Alcantara steering wheel is added as an option.
