Aston Martin DBS Exteriors
The Aston Martin DBS stays true to the Aston Martin classic. It has the same hand build works, aerodynamic looks that flow from the bonnet to the boot lid, powerful stance which ensures that it is an unmistakable form of an Aston Martin. Contrasting the dark body color is the red-colored brake calipers and also Aston Martin logos. Some might even confuse the DBS with a makeover DB9 but that is not a bad comparison, as the DB9 is a good looking car as well. The DBS separates itself from the DB9 with a sharper look. The boot lid, door surrounds, front wings and vented bonnet are weaved from carbon fibre that makes the car lighter by 39kg.

Aston Martin DBS Ride and Handling
The bonnet, the boot, the front wings and the door opening surrounds are all made by carbon fiber. This makes the Aston Martin DBS light in weight and quiet nippy.
