Gaydon, 4 May 2006: Aston Martin has unveiled the new DBS which will be driven by James Bond, the legendary British secret agent, in the next 007 film, “CASINO ROYALE”, to be produced by Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli for EON Productions. In true Bond style, specific details of the new DBS remain top secret, although Aston Martin Design Director, Marek Reichman, said: “This car encapsulates a link between our elegant DB9 road car and the powerful DBR9 race car. It signals an evolutionary development of Aston Martin’s world renowned style and elegance. “While hinting at our future design direction, the DBS also has very clear links with our heritage – it is instantly recognisable as an Aston Martin.” Aston Martin Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Dr Ulrich Bez added: “The DBS continues our proud and lengthy association with James Bond. “The DBS is not of the understated elegance of a DB9, nor the youthful agility of the V8 Vantage. It is explosive power in a black tie and has its own unique character which will equal that of James Bond.” Starring Daniel Craig as James Bond, “CASINO ROYALE” is scheduled for release in November, 2006.

    When they replaced Pierce Brosnan with the new bond they ruined this whole move series, the only good thing about the series is the Aston.

    Daniel Craig has some big shoes to fill and I can’t wait to see Casino Royale. A new Bond is always interesting.

    Hi all, – found out about this blog by accident whilst wandering across the net this afternoon, and pleased that I did! I do like the layout and colors, but I ought to point out that I’m having issues when it loads. I’m using ELinks 0.11 browser for mac, and the menu doesn’t line up properly. i’m sure I’ve used precisely the same layout on a customer’s internet site, but the menu seems all straight on mine. I have an idea the mistake is at my end & just maybe it’s time to switch!
