Both elegant and powerful, the DBS is a top of the line GT car with ~510BHP on tap from its 6.0L V12 engine.

The DBS is a top-end production GT sports car, costing £170,000 on first release. The vehicle is based on Aston Martin's VH platform and received a number of technical improvements over its sister car, the DB9. On release, the car was well received from the motoring press, and this continues to be the case over 10 years on. The combination of the power train and chassis set-up, Aston Martin really nailed it with this car.

This particular example comes to market with ~47,700 miles on the clock, in a desirable and ever popular black over black colour combination, and has been in the current ownership for ~1 year. It has lovely service history with Aston Martin to go with it, and presents in very good condition with some choice upgrades like Apple Car Play installed over the stock now dated standard sat-nav system.

This listing was written from information supplied by Glyn after meeting Melissa the owner, and having visited and photographed the vehicle.

Meet the owner

I’m one of the few people lucky enough to say they’ve owned one of their bucket list cars and the DBS has absolutely lived up to expectation.

Melissa has always wanted to own an Aston Martin DBS and when the opportunity to own one came up she had to scratch the itch, the car was up for sale by the manager of her local Aston Martin dealership and had been well looked after with full Aston Martin service history, with no reason not to say no she took the plunge and has never looked back.

Melissa has since had a promotion at work that requires a great deal of travel and therefore the Aston Martin no longer fits into her lifestyle, using this car as a daily driver feels a bit of a stretch, and so it comes to market with us. She will be happy to answer any questions about the car in the comments section below.

Aston Martin's flagship model of the 2010s, the muscular body lines and the iconic grill of the DBS give it an unmistakable presence on the road.

Wheels and Tyres

The multi spoke alloy wheels are generally in good condition with no evidence of major damage to be seen, however they do suffer from some slight curbing in places which can be seen in our image gallery below.

The wheels are dressed in three Pirelli P-Zero tyres and one Bridgestone tyre, all of which look to be in good condition and free of any damage to the sidewall while retaining good levels of tread across the board.


The bodywork of the DBS is in great overall condition, with no major dents, dings, or misaligned panels. There is one very minor dimple on the offside rear quarter, something that we think a paintless dent removal repair expert could fix. Sometimes these aluminium bodied Aston Martins can suffer from corrosion to the metal around windows and door handles etc, we didn't spot anything in these hot spot areas.

We've highlighted in more detail our observations through our high resolution images and videos, so please take time to look through all the media files for a detailed view at what’s on offer, and for you to assess the condition of the car for yourselves.


The "Obsidian Black" paintwork is in great condition, with only some light stone chipping on the front bumper in line with the age and mileage of the car. Melissa tells us she has had the paintwork ceramic coated during her ownership also, which helps to explain the excellent condition.

Again, we have taken high resolution images and videos of the car for you to assess the condition of the bodywork for yourselves. The images are taken from a few different angles to show off the car as you would see it if you were standing there for yourselves. So please take the time to fully assess these high resolution images and videos of the car, for you to make up your own minds about the condition of the paint.

Glass and Trim

The glass on the car is in excellent condition, with no visible stone chips, cracks, or scratches to be seen on any of the panes. The car benefits from various carbon fibre trim to the exterior, including rear diffuser, front splitters and wing mirror bases, all of which show in very good condition.


A beautifully hand crafted interior, Aston Martin are experts at creating a luxurious and comfortable space for both driver and passengers.

Seats and Carpets

The black leather upholstery of the DBS is in excellent condition, the inserts of the seats featuring Alcantara to help keep you in place at speeds. The condition is very good with no cracking or splitting visible on the front two seats, just some wear in line with mileage to the drivers side, and the rear seats look to be virtually untouched, however there are some light scuffs to the leather trim on the drivers side B pillar, but these look to be by no means irreparable.

Likewise the carpets look to be in really good condition, with no signs of heavy wear or damage to the carpet which is of course a lovely thick pile in keeping with Aston Martins luxurious cabin design trends.


The dashboard is in overall great condition too, with no damaged or broken switch gear, and no damage to any of the leather trim, again finished in a smart black.

The wood inserts on the dashboard area are in a very dark colour and look to be piano black, but you can just catch some of the grain and colour in the right lighting. The trim doesn't suffer the bleaching you often see in Aston Martins of this era.

Steering Wheel / Gear Stick

The steering wheel is in excellent condition, with no signs of wear, damage, or other such issues to speak of. All steering wheel controls work as expected and the leather is still in good condition too.

The lack of a automatic gear selector is synonymous with the Aston Martin range, instead featuring PRND on the dashboard, all of which are free of damage or wear.


With a 0-62MPH time of 4.3 seconds, the DBS is incredibly fast with instant throttle response and the unmistakable roar of the precision built 6.0L V12 under the bonnet.

Engine and Gearbox

The all alloy V12 is capable of producing ~510BHP delivered to the rear wheels via the six speed Touchtronic transmission. During our time with the car we filmed our usual "Cold Start" video, during which the car started without issue.

Watch the video to see the car out on the road too, no issues to report on our run-out with the gearbox performing as it should do too.

Suspension and Brakes

The adaptive suspension on the Aston Martin DBS provides a progressive and comfortable drive, allowing for comfort on longer journeys and precise handling under load. The suspension did not make any untoward noises during our time with the vehicle and Melissa reports no such issues during her time with the car.

Visible through the multi-spoke alloy wheels, the carbon ceramic discs and pads both look to be in great condition. Likewise these functioned perfectly during our time with the vehicle, stopping the car quickly and efficiently.

The Drive

The Aston Martin DBS is a very special sports car, boasting impressive performance figures and excellent engineering, what more would you expect from Aston Martin's world renowned reputation. The V12 is equally as happy eating up the miles on the motorway as it is showing its true colours with more spirited driving, making for the perfect hybrid between GT and performance car.

Electrics and Other

Fully fitted with Bang & Olufsen sound system, the infotainment system has also been retrofitted with high definition display and built in Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, really bringing the DBS into the modern era with access to Google maps, Spotify, and more of your favourite apps on the go.

Lovely to also see things like the Aston Martin pen still present in the centre console, the car also comes with the Aston Martin trickle charger that connects via a port in the boot.

History and Paperwork

Coming to market with a solid AM service history, only ~47,700 miles, and modern touches such as Apple CarPlay, this Aston Martin DBS is up for auction just in time for the summer season.

With a comprehensive service history from Aston Martin themselves, this DBS is presented in excellent condition throughout. Melissa will be happy to answer any questions you may have about the car in the comments below.

We’ve done all our usual seller checks including photo ID, V5 and also actioned a HPi check on the vehicle.

We've summarised our own view on the car based on information gained from the seller in the listing above, however, and as you can see, we go to great lengths to photograph and video the car in high resolution detail - this has been done for you to make your own assessment from the comfort of your sofa. So please sit back, have a cuppa and take your time to review everything on this listing in order to make your own assessment on the vehicle's condition. Viewings are also welcomed with all our listings, so please get in touch with us to arrange a suitable time - we just need to speak to you first and receive a valid photo ID before confirming.

If there's anything you're unsure about, no matter how small, then please first ask the owner in the comments area below before placing your bid/s, as bids can't be retracted and form a binding contract if you win the car - just like a traditional auction house.
