The first thing we can say is that the car’s internal name is 310. The official release of the 310 is expected for the coming weeks. On the 18th of May – eight days – a small number potential customers is flown to the Nurburgring in Germany to have an early look at the new DBS. Customers have already placed down payments on the new DBS with an expected delivery time of December 2012/January 2013.
Aston Martin told our source that the new DBS will have a different look from the DBS which is now available. It will have several parts showing the One-77 spirit and it will also have a similar interior as the One-77. The picture shown above has some of the new design characteristics in it. Of course the DBS will not look the same, but use some of its design characteristics. The renderings below provide you with an idea of what the new DBS will offer.
The spyshots revealed before show significant changes to the cars design with a more aggressive look thanks to many new parts. Larger wheels arches are the most noticeable change, alongside a new front bumper with a deeper, more agressive look. The wing mirrors are fixed to the door and the rear also gets a number of design modifications.
Under the bonnet, Aston Martin will fit the same 6.0 liter V12 as you currently find in the V12 Vantage, DBS and DB9 models. It should get a power boost to around 600hp. Expect significant weight savings thanks to lightweight construction, lower emissions ratings and increased economy figures.
