New Aston Martin DBS Reveals More Skin Amidst V12 Rumors

The redesigned DBS has been spotted undergoing testing again, and it will draw inspiration from the new DB12 in several aspects

 New Aston Martin DBS Reveals More Skin Amidst V12 Rumors

  • Aston Martin is testing the next iteration of the DBS, featuring an evolutionary design with some DB12 influences.
  • The new DBS might retain the powerful twin-turbo 5.2-liter V12 engine, potentially exceeding 800 hp.
  • An official debut is expected this summer with sales to follow before year-end.

Aston Martin’s pursuit to revitalize their lineup continues with the next iteration of the DBS, which we’ve caught testing amidst fresh rumors of a possible revival of the Vanquish name. Regardless of its moniker, the revamped coupe is poised to compete against Ferrari’s upcoming 812 Superfast replacement in the front-engined supercar segment.

Like the recently launched DB12 and Vantage, evolution is the name of the game for the high-performance DBS coupe, which isn’t entirely all-new. However, the model adopts a more traditional front end that ditches a mesh grille for one featuring a mix of horizontal and vertical bars.

Designers also gave the model new headlights and a more conventional ventilated hood. They’re joined by a wider front splitter as well as what appears to be smaller air intakes. The car is a spitting image of its predecessor in profile as the roof, greenhouse, and doors appear to carryover untouched. However, we can expect updated front fenders with what appears to be larger vents.

There are extensive changes at the rear that look far more dramatic, as the new model features C-shaped taillights reminiscent of those found on the DB12, along with a significantly more pronounced built-in lip spoiler for the trunk. We can also see a more aggressive bumper design which ties in nicely with the sportier diffuser. They’re joined by a four-tailpipe exhaust system, which has tips housed in hexagonal recesses.

The car also rides on newly designed alloy rims, behind which we find a massive set of brake discs and red calipers. It’s likely that you’ll be able to customize the calipers’ color to your preference.

We haven’t had the opportunity to get a good look inside yet, but the new DBS should echo its siblings and feature a significantly improved interior. Highlights will likely include a freestanding digital instrument cluster and a new 10.25-inch infotainment system. Additionally, we can expect to see a modern flat-bottom steering wheel, a minimalist shifter, and a ramp-like center console.

V12 Powerplant?

While the DB12 traded its twin-turbo 5.2-liter V12 engine for a Mercedes AMG-sourced twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8, the DBS might buck that trend. Previous reports have suggested the V12 will remain, and if true, we can likely expect an output of around 759 hp (566 kW / 770 PS) and 664 lb-ft (900 Nm) of torque. However, some sources have told us that the model may exceed the 800 hp (597 kW / 811 PS) mark.

An official debut will likely take place this summer, with the Monterey Car Week 2024 in August being a prime candidate for the unveiling. Sales are expected to follow before the end of the year.
