Selling An Aston Martin DBS
Designed by William Towns and unveiled at Blenheim Palace on September 25, 1967, the Aston Martin DBS was initially built to receive a V8 engine and only intended for limited production. However, the car would be powered by the 6-cylinder engine of the Aston Martin DB6 and ran from 1967 to 1972. The DBS was also supposed to replace the DB6, but both models ended up being produced concurrently for three years. The DBS features a larger body than the DB6, and a more modern look with its squared off front grille and fastback style rear end. Many of the typical Aston Martin design cues were maintained, such as the bonnet scoop, the knock off wire wheels, and side air vents with stainless steel bright work. A revised version of the DBS was introduced in April 1972, with two headlamps instead of four. The interior of the DBS is wider, with additional shoulder room and improved seats, making it a comfortable four-seat touring car that is particularly appreciated in the US market.
Aston Martin DBS Seller’s Guide
Featured on the 1969 James Bond Movie On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, and again in 1971 in Diamonds Are Forever, the DBS is an iconic classic car in today’s market. The DBS is powered by the same 4-Liter straight-six engine used for the DB6, and was made available with the Vantage spec engine option to compensate for the increased weight over the DB6. The Vantage specs featured revised camshafts to boost the car’s performance. Only 70 examples of the Aston Martin Vantage model were made. Initially developed with a new V8 engine in mind, the engineers decided to start the production of the DBS with the DB6 engine, as the V8 wasn’t ready yet. The DBS V8 was made available a later on and was then known as the fastest 4-seat car on the market.
