About Aston Martin DBS
You'll have to look closely to see the differences between the 2012 Aston Martin DBS and the Aston Martin DB9, but the most obvious is clearly the nearly $100,000 price difference on the window sticker. The DBS and DBS Volante's extra cost actually buys less car, which in this case is a good thing. Compared to the DB9, the DBS is 50 pounds lighter but its 6.0-liter engine pumps out more power, rendering a lower 0 to 60 time and faster top speed. Beyond its higher position in the Aston Martin pecking order, the 2012 DBS offers more available features including the new Carbon Edition model and a manual transmission – something the DB9 no longer offers.
