The Aston Martin DBS was a grand tourer based on the DB9 and replaced the 2004 Vanquish S as the flagship model. The DBS name had been used once before on their 1967-72 grand tourer coupé and the modern car was officially unveiled at the 2007 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance on 16th August, 2007, followed by the more traditional 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show. The convertible version of the DBS, dubbed the DBS Volante, was unveiled at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show, followed this time by the 2009 Concours d'Elegance. The DBS Volante included a motorised retractable fabric roof controlled by a button in the centre console which could fold into the compartment located behind the seats in just 14 seconds. Impressively, the roof could also be opened or closed even at speeds up to 30mph. Other features included rear-mounted six-speed manual or optional six-speed Touchtronic 2 automatic gearbox and a Bang & Olufsen BeoSound DBS in-car entertainment system with 13 speakers. The DBS was selected to be the service issue Aston Martin for the 2006 James Bond movie Quantum of Solace and starred in a record breaking action sequence towards the end of the film and an exhilarating opening scene for Daniel Craig's second outing as Bond.
Originally Purchased from Stratstone Aston Martin and registered on 16th October, 2010, this stunning example is offered in Quantum Silver with fantastic black leather interior with alcantara inserts and steering wheel. Fully loaded, this example boasts Bang & Olufsen surround sound system and diamond cut wheels with new Pirelli tyres. As well as presenting immaculately, the history accompanying this car is similarly impressive with a full Aston Martin service history, having been serviced with Stratstone eight times, the ninth entry in the service booklet was in July 2018 with Aston Marin Walton on Thames at 44,760 miles on the odometer. Still under an extended Aston Marin warranty, this DBS is sure to be a future classic, it looks and sounds fabulous and is described as the only Aston Martin for a serious collector or investor. This fine example is sure to pay generous dividends in years to come and what better way to wait than imagining yourself as a suave 007.
