New photos of Aston Martin’s successor to the DBS/DB9 have come into the CarBuzz offices.
Aston Martin is joining the long list of automakers in testing their latest wares around the famed Nurburgring race track. Our spy photographers captured the British brand's DBS/DB9 successor running a few hot laps on the track and it looks quite good in its silver guise. Wearing a set of sticky Pirelli tires, it wears a sculpted front end reminiscent of the One-77 and also some redesigned headlights, while the rest of the design looks like an evolution of the current generation DBS.
The rear features some muscular arches along with a snazzy spoiler. The Aston's 6.0-liter V12 engine will remain, with power boosted into a range of 550-600hp. Lightweight materials and a lighter chassis should improve performance numbers to something like 0-62mph in just under four seconds and a top speed of roughly 200mph. The new Aston Martin DBS/DB9 should arrive later this year and it could carry a price tag upwards of £200,000.
