Aston Martin Reveals "Casino Royale" DBS Photos


The Aston Martin folks have pulled the wraps off the Aston Martin DBS, the car specifically created for the upcoming James Bond film, Casino Royale.

Aston is being coy about the details, but the company's 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 with our heritage – it is instantly recognisable as an Aston Martin.”

Dr. Urich Bez, the automaker's CEO, added, “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.”

My opinion?

It's cool.

Casino Royale hits theaters in November.
