Stepping away from the previous Aston Martin DB4, DB5 and DB6’s designs, the 1967 Aston Martin DBS features a more modern body, very representative of the trends in the early 1970’s automotive design. With a more comfortable and spacious interior, offering extra shoulder room, the DBS is a real four-seater GT. Originally, a new V8 engine was destined to power the new car. However, the V8 not being ready in time, the DBS inherited the engine used for the DB6. This 4.0L DOHC straight-6 engine produces 283 hp at 5,500 rpm. To offset the weight gain from the heavier DBS’s body, the Vantage option was used to increase power; it boosted the horsepower up to 325. Still relatively lightweight (3,760 lb), the DBS is a very fun car to drive.

The DBS was used in two James Bond movies: On Her Majesty’s Secret Service as the main car in 1969, and more briefly in Diamonds Are Forever in 1971, making it an instant cult classic. As with all classic Aston Martins, parts and service can be quite pricey, therefore, you need to make sure you’re not investing in a questionable car or one that you are unprepared to restore.
