When Daniel Craig sauntered into the Casino Royale, Montenegro for his high-stakes poker game in the eponymous film of 2006, parked outside was his service issue Aston Martin DBS. Menacingly sleek and packing a punch, much like 007 himself, the DBS was to star in a record-breaking action sequence towards the end of the film and an exhilarating opening scene for Craig's second outing as Bond in Quantum of Solace. With a top speed of 191mph and a 0-60 time of 4.3 seconds, the DBS was the raffish younger bother to its rather sedate older sibling, the DB9, within the Aston family at the time. Although it was a relatively large car, weighing in at 1,680kg, it was in fact 65kg lighter than the DB9 thanks to the extensive use of carbon fibre for its bonnet, bumpers and numerous structural components. Even the cockpit had been on a diet using lighter weight semi-aniline interior leather and even the standard carpets were made of a lighter weight fibre. The centre console was changed with a cast metal surround, new graphics and turned aluminium heater knobs. Scissor-style doors formed from aluminium ensured that the DBS would make an impression wherever it arrived. Underneath, the DBS utilised a new adaptive suspension design that gave the car tenacious handling when pressing-on or, at the touch of a button, a cosseting ride for gentle cruising. Carbon-ceramic disc brakes ensured that it would come to a halt quickly and effortlessly. Complete street-credibility was ensured by the introduction of a polished sapphire ECU that was inserted into a slot in the starter button instead of a boring old key.

Powered by a 510bhp, 5.9-Litre, V12 engine the DBS is a seriously fast Aston and very impressive on the road particularly when fitted with the manual six-speed gearbox as is the car here. In left-hand drive and finished in Stratus White with a Spicy Red interior, the Aston was delivered new to the UAE in 2012 and currently lives in Dubai. Impeccably maintained and having covered only 900km this is a superb example of a very special car.
