We snap new supercar a day ahead of its official unveiling
16 August 2007

You’ll have to wait until tomorrow (Friday 17) for full details of Aston Martin’s new range-topping DBS (including Autocar.co.uk's exclusive video), but for the moment feast your eyes on this crystal-clear photo.

Taken on the M25 – London’s orbital motorway – this photo shows the production-ready DBS in more detail than ever before, from the ground-hugging side skirts to the clear rear light lenses.

The DBS is set to replace the Vanquish, which went out of production in July. The Vanquish was the last car to be produced at Aston’s Newport Pagnell factory; the DBS, like the DB9 and V8 Vantage, is built at the firm’s new HQ in Gaydon, Warwickshire.

We have already seen the DBS, of course – it was revealed in the James Bond film, Casino Royale, but as we say, for the full details, you’ll have to come back tomorrow. Trust us, it’s worth the wait.
