Mildly surprised it’s on 305’s same as Vanquish but a lot more torque and hp, but guys on stand assured me there’s a lot more electronics to enable that to be put down.
Opinion seems to be customers (old) disappointed to lose Vanquish name and also lose n/a v12

I suppose any wider than 305s looks a bit silly. May also affect handling with wider rubber.

I think Porsche can pull off a 325 tyre on a 911 without it looking strange but not on an Aston IMO

holy orientation nightmare batman. literally spinning my laptop round trying to look at these.

Some lovely stuff by the looks of things though.

Still not convinced by the v600 nose but in the flesh the rest has so much presence. I do wish a simpler wide body with gt8 underpinnings had filtered down to mass production, like the gt3 touring type thing.

Got to say it, I love the new DBS.........when they come into my realms of affordability in a couple of years I'll be on one in a flash. Just the whole poise and stance looks spot on for me and I love the front end, can't wait to see the Volante, although that would mean loosing the CF roof and strakes option.

I have the NA V12 sitting in the garage and that isn't going anywhere, so I don't care that the DBSS is a TT biggrin
