2006 Aston Martin DBS news, pictures, specifications, and information

Aston Martin has unveiled the new DBS which will be driven by James Bond, the legendary British secret agent, in the next 007 film, 'CASINO ROYALE', to be produced by Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli for EON Productions.

In true Bond style, specific details of the new DBS remain top secret, although Aston Martin Design Director, Marek Reichman, said: 'This car encapsulates a link between our elegant DB9 road car and the powerful DBR9 race car. It signals an evolutionary development of Aston Martin's world renowned style and elegance.

'While hinting at our future design direction, the DBS also has very clear links wîth our heritage – it is instantly recognisable as an Aston Martin.'

Aston Martin Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Dr Úlrich Bez added: 'The DBS continues our proud and lengthy association wîth James Bond.

'The DBS is not of the understated elegance of a DB9, nor the youthful agility of the V8 Vantage. It is explosive power in a black tie and has its own unique character which will equal that of James Bond.'

Starring Daniel Craig as James Bond, 'CASINO ROYALE' is scheduled for release in November, 2006.

Aston Martin announces that James Bond, the legendary British secret agent, will drive one of their models in the next 007 film, 'CASINO ROYALE' to be produced by Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli for Eon Productions.

Daniel Craig, who will play James Bond in the film, which is due to be released in November 2006 by MGM/Sony, visited the Aston Martin headquarters in Gaydon, Warwickshire, on Friday to view the featured car. While there he met Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Dr Úlrich Bez, and members of the workforce and also took the opportunity to take a short test drive.

In the true tradition of Bond, full details of the car to be used in 'CASINO ROYALE' are being kept top secret but the company did confirm that it would be a new model called the Aston Martin DBS.

Dr Úlrich Bez said: 'It is great news that Bond will drive an Aston Martin again and we have built him something special to enable him to do his job in style.'

The association wîth the marque began in 1964 wîth the film 'Goldfinger' when the DB5 was fitted wîth 'optional extras' such as ejector seats and rockets. The last Bond film, 'Die Another Day', featured Aston Martin's flagship model, the Vanquish.
