Is This The New Aston Martin DBS?


Take a look at these spy photos of a new Aston Martin model, which we brought you on Wednesday. We’re pretty sure they represent the new Aston Martin DB9, but there seems to be conflicting opinion on that.

Britain’s Car Magazine has positively identified the car as the new Aston Martin DBS, which is a higher-performance variant of the Aston Martin DB9. In fact, Car even states that the new DBS will arrive at UK dealers by the end of the year, after a likely introduction at this fall’s Paris Auto Show.

While we both agree that it’s a new Aston Martin model, we’ll have to agree to disagree on which one. The current DB9 has been in production since 2004, with minor refreshes in 2008 and 2011, while the DBS only entered production in 2007. While both are due for replacement, the DB9 is long overdue.

Since the DBS is based on the DB9, a new DBS would almost certainly follow a new DB9, which hasn’t been released just yet. While it’s possible that both models have been developed in parallel, it isn’t likely given Aston Martin’s limited resources.

We’re sticking with our original claim: the car you see pictured here is almost certainly the 2013 Aston Martin DB9. One of us is incorrect, and we’ll find out which one later this year.
