The DBS will launch the new Aston Martin era. Set to go into production in October, it’ll be quicker than any Aston road car before it, thanks to its massaged V-12. It’ll weigh about 220 pounds less than a regular DB9. The DBS will replace the Vanquish as the flagship Aston Martin. The $260,000 Vanquish goes out of production shortly. The price of the DBS? About the same.
