Aston Martin DBS Casino Royale by Anderson

The Aston Martin DBS is trying to say goodbye as next year a new generation model will be launched. But until then, Anderson specialists have decided to offer a little flavor to the carmaker. This is how the Casino Royale edition was born. It has as base the DBS Platinum Grey developed by Anderson and it reminds us a lot of James Bond. The exterior color is grey and it runs on 21-inch gray wheels. After the installation of a new exhaust system, the engine is capable of producing more horsepower. In the end it develops from the base 510 horsepower up to 564 horsepower. On the inside it features several elements to make its look even more special. Some of them are door sills, door handles, ventilation, cup holders, handbrake, ashtrays and center console and a lot more.

Since 2007, as the successor with the same name but 35 years later, the Aston Martin DBS officially cared for the furor. One year before, the elite Briton had been presented to the chosen cinema public in the James Bond movie "Casino Royale". This VIP automobile was taken by (and who wonders?) the ANDERSON company from Germany with its main office in D?sseldorf. They have left the territory of the company and also the impressive unique specimen with an unrivaled brand recognition.


The "basics" with the additional Platinum Grey Edition must have had the power increase in the capital of North Rhein-Westphalia. The initial power of 517 hp was increased up to 572 hp thanks to the installed exhaust system with catalyst, replacement pipes, manifold and software optimization. The exclusive engine's "language center" has a black valve system with remote control that enables three different sound levels.


Moreover, the complete exhaust system reduced the weight by good 21 kg. The complete matt gray paint on the sides contrasts with the shiny gray of the perfectly chosen parts: window borders, tailgates block and radiator case. Another highlight of the lower set Aston Martin DBS by ANDERSON is a not less spectacular wheel and tyres combination of 21-inch shiny gray home-made ANDERSON rims with 255 tyres at the front and 295 - at the rear. Brake calipers are painted in bronze. Also, there are logos outside: on the engine hood and the boot lid. The installed carbon exterior packet - a front spoiler lip, a rear diffuser and a mirror besides full tinted glass - is worth a special mention.


They have also installed a carbon packet inside. It includes ventilation, cup holders, door handles, ashtrays, door sills, steering wheel, handbrake handle and the center console. The rest of the interior finishing is performed completely in black carbon fiber, also combined with black alcantara, seat upholstery welt and bronze diamond-shaped welt.


Rumour has it from time to time that ANDERSON as a tuner turns poor featured luxury vehicles into unique specimens and, on the other hand, offers to stars and VIPs all over the world (as well as to those who want to become such) a chance to return the car in the same place where it was taken after the finishing. Enjoy the service ? la ANDERSON!
