2010 Aston Martin DBS V12 Volante with only 22,000 miles. In terms of its styling, the DBS was clearly a development of the DB9 but with the additions of a carbon fibre front splitter and carbon fibre rear diffuser among aerodynamic tweaks. The aluminium chassis is known as the 'VH Generation 2' platform, 'VH' referring to its vertical and horizontal adaptability and state-of-the-art manufacturing techniques were employed in making the aluminium/composite body, which was robotically assembled using a combination of self-piercing rivets and adhesive.
It was powered by a development of the 5.9-litre, 48-valve, V12 engine found in other Aston Martin models, producing 510bhp initially, an output sufficient to propel the aerodynamic Coupe to a top speed of 190mph with 60mph attainable from a standing start in just 4.3 seconds. The aluminium engine was mounted as far back as possible in the chassis, whilst the transmission/final drive was combined in a rear transaxle, resulting in 85% of the car's mass being sited between the axles offering a perfect 50/50 front/rear weight distribution, with commensurate benefits to handling, roadholding, and controllability. The majority of cars were ordered with the six-speed Touchtronic 2 paddle-shift semi-automatic and, with the arrival of the fabric-roofed Volante in 2009, the DBS settled comfortably into its role as a Super-GT with a sporting edge.
This delightful example is one of only 32 UK DBS finished in Storm Black. It's fitted with a Touchtronic 2 paddle-shift and was specified from new with Obsidian Black (20M) leather with contrasting Red (N3497) stitching to ‘environment one’ and ‘outer’ seat panels, a Piano Black centre console, bright grille and bonnet meshes and a Bang & Olufsen Hi-Fi with BlueTooth. It was originally registered RX10 ENR but now wears XX07 DBS and has been generously treated to Williams Ceramic paint and upholstery protection.
In addition to the Owner's Handbook and service invoices (most recent at 21,104 miles) etc., it's supplied with the original Aston Martin factory build sheet – rarely supplied or retained with the car's history.
