DBS entered production in 2007 after a global reveal event at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. As the new flagship for the Aston Martin model range, DBS was designed to represent a synthesis of raw power, race-bred technology and design excellence.

Before entering production DBS appeared as James Bond's car of choice in 'Casino Royale', Daniel Craig's debut in the role released in 2006. The car featured in one of the film's most memorable moments, rolling seven times and setting a new world record. DBS also appeared in the opening sequence of 'Quantum of Solace' the follow up film released in 2008.
2009 saw production begin of DBS Volante, the convertible derivative of DBS. Low, powerful and sleek, DBS Volante offered the thrill of open-top driving. Production of both DBS Coupe and Volante ended in 2012 following the launch of Vanquish.
