They look a lot like the DB9 on which they’re based, but the DBS coupe and Volante convertible separate themselves with carbon-fiber body panels, extra structural reinforcement, and a more-powerful V-12. There are better performers for the money, but nothing—aside from another Aston—can match the DBS’s gravitas. Quick in a straight line with decent handling, this is a car built as much for a grand arrival as it is for the long journey. Plus, it’s drop-dead gorgeous, just the way James Bond likes it.
