Introduction

Kulraj Singh Salh
Chief Operating Officer

Elegant and powerful, this generation of DBS really hit the nail on head. Some of the Trade Classics team prefer the original classic, or Vantage/V8 as it was known, but personally the V12 and detailing on this car really do it for me.

You’ll find a few automatic cars on the market, but the manual version seems to be a rarer car to come up for sale. Tended to by Aston Martin it’s whole life, this car feels like the one to get if you are in the market for a DBS of this generation. A “youngtimer” we think.

This auction listing was written from information supplied by Kulraj after meeting Simon the owner, and having visited and photographed the vehicle.

Meet the owner

Having enjoyed the car for a number of years, I feel like it’s time for a change, possibly to something like a Bentley Continental GT as a replacement for this grand tourer.

Simon has owned this DBS for around 9 years, having bought the car directly from Aston Martin in Reading. He’s been lucky enough to own a number of different cars over the years, some classic Porsche, before making the move to Aston Martin. Having turned 50, he decided to treat himself to a DBS having seen and admired the design in pictures previously.

Exterior

Finished in the special option colour of “Casino Royale” Grey, the car has both carbon fibre panels in many places, as well as carbon fibre accents on elements like the front splitter and rear diffuser. A really striking car.

Wheels and Tyres

The car is fitted with the factory 20" wheels, and recommended Pirelli tyres. All look in excellent condition, no signs of curbing or corrosion.

Bodywork

Bonnet, boot and front wings are carbon fibre panels. We didn't see any imperfections in the bodywork, the shut-lines and panel gaps across the car look as they should do. Excellent condition. Take a look at the video review for the detail.

Paint

The paintwork across the car looks stunning, it really suits this model. We had to look really hard to see a couple of stone-chips on the front end of the car, and other than those tiny blemishes, the paint is unmarked.

Glass and Trim

All the glass and trim across the car is original and looks in excellent condition. The carbon fibre diffuser and front-splitter really set the car off, along with the chrome touches to the grill and wings.

Interior

Finished in black leather with black carpets, the cabin is a very smart. Chrome and a few carbon fibre touches also adorn the interior.

Seats and Carpets

The seats and carpets are both in excellent condition. Deep bolsters and some lovely “DBS” stitching on the seats, which you sink right into. We didn’t see any damage to the seats, just a bit of ageing in the leather as you would expect, nothing a bit of treatment wouldn’t fix. Take a look at the images and videos for the detailed view.

Dashboard

A very tidy dashboard, with the dual key slot/start stop button taking centre stage. We didn’t observe any issues with the dashboard, dials, or centre console… sublime.

Steering Wheel / Gear Stick

The steering wheel looked great wrapped in black leather. Some nice touches like the perforated leather on the top half, and the stitching at the 12 o’clock position. The gear stick is finished in chrome. This has micro-scratches on it from use, the leather gaiter looked great. Watch the video review to see for yourself.

Mechanics

510 BHP coming from the 6.0L V12, and a 6 speed manual box to transfer the power to the rear wheels, power on this car is readily available and delivered.

Engine and Gearbox

The car started from cold on the button, and the V12 roared in to action. No smoke to be wary of, just a bit of vapour as you would expect. On our short run with Simon on the local dual carriageway, he went through all the gears without issue, and gave us a little symphony taking the car above 5,500 RPMs for the active bypass to kick in. Watch the video for the details.

Suspension and Brakes

As well as having ample power on tap, the car has big carbon ceramic discs all around to stop the car efficiently and further reduce weight. The car handled firm but fair on the short run, with its sports suspension set to the standard mode. No knocks, rattles, squeaks observed as you’ll see from the on the road video.

The Drive

A lovely drive through the town centre and then at speed on the dual carriageway to see some of what that V12 has to offer. No issues along the way, over speed bumps and a variety of surfaces, a car the owner will enjoy from the get go.

Electrics and Other

Simon informs us that everything works on the car as it should.

History and Paperwork

Full service history with Aston Martin, this car has been looked after by an Aston Martin main dealer from new.

An impeccable service history/provenance comes with this car. Alongside the condition, and the manual gearbox, it makes for a very attractive proposition for the next owner.

Hello there,
Great looking car – can you please confirm if the recent services 8/9/10 year have been carried out? Not absolutely clear on the service book but its mentioned above that the last service was June 2018? Plus will the air bag and seat belt tensioners 10 year service be covered? It looks like it is due a major service next month.
As part of this it would also be good to get a formal confirmation check on the condition of the carbon ceramic brakes as they are an extremely (!) expensive replacement at service.
Thanks! E

Hi E,

The seller is checking with the dealership on these items and should get back to us today 🙂

Hi E,

Simon has found the invoice from last year, it was the 9 year one, and now uploaded (last image), and looks to have had the brakes cleaned as part of that (from the line item on the invoice). You’ll also see that the car had its 8 year service in 2016 as per the invoice uploaded.

Hope that helps, if Aston Martin come back to Simon with any more information, he will reply here.

Thanks Kulraj,

Appreciate the swift update – super useful. I see that the 9 year service was completed in May 2017, would just be useful to see any servicing done between then and now? The 2018 service for example aside from the battery change? I may have missed it but couldn’t see any service history for past 2 years?
Plus minor point but the 2017 service is listed as both 22 May and 24 May in service evidence and original service history listing.
Thanks! E

Hi E,

I’ve just looked over the paperwork we uploaded again, along with the fan/battery change, there was a service in June 2018. It’s in there! And actually, it was the 10th anniversary service, as stated on the uploaded invoice.

Hope that helps! 🙂
