2011 Aston Martin DBS Reviews, Specifications & Pictures. We introduce a new product that is Aston Martin DBS 2011. Modified version Aston Martin DBS is very captivating because of the development of the aston martin DB9. while the look is almost the same dbs and DB9, which look longer will reveal a prominent DBS fenders. then additional air vents and the fascia is more chiseled. may each have their own interest, including this 2011 Aston Martin DBS. Preference that has toughness.
A striking difference in style of this generation of Aston Martin. But the DBS is more than something that makes the sound beautiful drive. Interior is decorated dengna imitation leather and suede, plus accents alumnium, black-wood piano, and for the year 2011, the provision of buttons on the center console. in addition, customers can choose a pair of vestigial rear seats or a more useful parcel shelf that also trims weight. rear seats are equipped with a comfortable suspension model to be occupied.
The 2011 Aston Martin DBS is available in coupe and convertible (DBS Volante) body styles. Two seats are standard, although you can have the standard rear parcel shelves replaced by two tiny seats as an option.
Standard equipment includes 20-inch wheels, an electronically adjustable suspension, carbon-ceramic brakes, xenon headlights, front and rear parking sensors, automatic power-folding outside mirrors, cruise control, an eight-way power driver seat with memory functions, a four-way power passenger seat, leather/faux suede upholstery, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, Bluetooth, a hard-drive-based navigation system and a 10-speaker Bang & Olufsen surround-sound audio system with an in-dash six-CD changer, an auxiliary audio jack and an iPod interface. The Volante convertible features a fully powered soft top and hard tonneau cover.
The 2011 Aston Martin DBS is powered by a 6.0-liter V12 that produces 510 hp and 420 pound-feet of torque. A six-speed manual transmission is standard, while a six-speed automatic with shift paddles on the steering wheel is optional. Aston Martin estimates the DBS coupe will accelerate from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.3 seconds.
The 2011 DBS comes with a fair amount of safety equipment for an exotic sports car. Stability and traction control are standard, along with antilock carbon-ceramic disc brakes. Side airbags and front and rear parking sensors are standard. There haven’t been any official government crash tests conducted, but if you go by the Bond movie Casino Royale, you can flip a DBS nine times and allegedly survive. So there’s that.
The interior of the 2011 DBS is one of the finest examples of English craftsmanship. It’s difficult to find a surface not covered in soft leather or faux suede. Subtle carbon-fiber trim lines areas of the doors, while tasteful alloy trim and optional piano-black trim (a must-have) adorn the center console.
For 2011, most of the buttons on the center console are fashioned from glass, which is certainly a swanky touch, while the layout of those buttons, with its central LCD, is adapted from Volvo and is a user-friendly and attractive interface. The same can’t be said for the navigation system, which is finicky to use.
The gauges are another point of contention, even though they look exquisite. Not only do the speedometer and tachometer rotate in opposite directions (the tach spins counter-clockwise), but also the speedo features such a huge range of numbers that you have to rely on the redundant digital readout in the trip computer.
The 2011 Aston Martin DBS is surprisingly easy to drive. The clutch effort is light and the pedal travel is short, while the shift lever for the manual transmission snick-snicks through the gates with precision. The steering is light and the cabin’s decent visibility makes it feel less onerous than some other exotics. Not only is it easy to handle, it’s also surprisingly comfortable. Although the ride is firmer than the DB9′s, the DBS is never punishing. The optional automatic transmission may not be as engaging as the automated manuals found in competitors, but it’s also a lot smoother in everyday driving.
