Aston Martin DBS - James Bond in Casino Royale

The new Aston Martin DBS brought a lot of success to the carmaker as in the next 007 film, Casino Royale, will be driven by the legendary British secret agent, James Bond. As expected and to match the spirit of James Bond, a lot of details are being kept hidden. There were a few things revealed despite all. The man who specified a few details is Aston Martin Design Director, Marek Reichman. He said the DBS it is actually a combination between the stylish DB9 road car and the strong DBR9 race car. The DBS is a model with a strong personality, elegant and also has a special character just like James Bond. In November 2006 Casino Royale will be released and we will have the opportunity to see the new DBS for real close to Daniel Craig playing the role of James Bond. This way, the carmaker hopes customers will associate their car with the secret agent.

James Bond, the legendary British secret agent will drive the new Aston Martin DBS in the next 007 film, CASINO ROYALE. The movie will be produced by Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli for EON Productions.

In true Bond style, specific details of the new DBS remain top secret, although Aston Martin 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.
Aston Martin Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Dr Ulrich Bez added: The DBS continues our proud and lengthy association with James Bond.

While hinting at our future design direction, the DBS has very clear links with our heritage it is instantly recognisable as an Aston Martin.

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.

With Daniel Craig as James Bond, CASINO ROYALE is scheduled for release in November, 2006.
