Billed at its introduction in 2007 as "the ultimate luxury sports car," the Aston Martin DBS has seen few updates over the past four years, but nevertheless manages to hang firmly with the latest collection of high-end hardware on both looks and performance--though it costs as much as three or four times the price. MotorAuthority appreciates the refined elegance of the Aston Martin DBS, and tentatively rates it an overall 9 out of 10.
What the DBS, or nearly any Aston Martin, lacks in outright performance, it more than makes up in charm, style, and beauty. Their unique proportions, attention to detail, rarity, and extremely high-end nature make them unique even among the Ferraris, Porsches, and Lamborghinis of the world, whether in coupe or Volante (convertible) form.
Powered by a 6.0-liter v-12 engine good for 510 horsepower, the 2011 DBS accelerates to 60 mph in 4.3 seconds. That's a long shot from supercar status these days, with even run-of-the-mill Corvettes and Mustangs...
