New Aston Martin DBS to spearhead launch of revised DB9 family in late 2012

Aston Martin DBS

The Aston Martin DB9 has been with us for about seven years now and since then, a modicum of version have been released, one of which being the hot DBS that Daniel Craig’s James Bond has been donning. That said, Aston’s DB line is up for revision and once again, the epic DBS takes the spotlight again by leading the DB9’s revision debut due in late 2012.

Pictures of the DBS prototype have been circulating the Interwebs for sometime now and it’s obvious to see that the already sexy DBS has been reworked in many ways. Changes also continue to the insides as the cockpit will be the first to see a revision since the DB’s inception in 2004.

Many of the changes are strongly reminiscent of the One-77 supercar. For example, the hood features cooling vents and curves much like the One-77’s hood. Speaking of which, the DBS’s 6.0L V12 will receive a 20-hp bump for a full 630-hp. Dear lord.
