The latest 2008 Aston Martin DBS supercar, a glimpse of which we’ve already seen in the latest James Bond flick, has finally been officially revealed.

As usual for the British ultra-luxury brand, the vehicle looks absolutely stunning both on the outside and inside its plush cabin with lots of black Alcantara and black lacquer. And yes, the impressive looks are flawlessly matched with a monster-sized engine that makes this car faster than some pre-WWII fighters.

The two-seater will feature a mighty V12 engine mated to a six-speed manual gearbox and capable of producing up to 510 bhp and enormous 570 Nm of torque.

The DBS jumps from zero to 62mph in just 4.3 seconds reaching a top speed of 191 mph (302 km/h).

Starting at a reasonable (although not yet officially confirmed) price of €200,000, the Aston Martin DBS will sport carbon-fiber hood, splitter, front bumper, boot lid, rear diffuser and even door pulls made of this feather-light material.

Its lightweight seats are also made of carbon-fiber and Kevlar, saving about 20 kg of total body weight, although these are not available at the North American market.

The car also features adaptive damper controlled suspension, optimized air intake system with ‘by-pass’ port, bonded aluminum inner body structure, carbon ceramic brakes, advanced refinish process with epoxy and glass beads and an Aston Martin 700W stereo system with Dolby Pro Logic II, mp3 players connectivity and a slot for the six-CD autochanger located at the top of the console.

The car was unveiled last Thursday at the famous Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.

Its price stick will be shown to the public in September at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
