Res­ur­rect­ing a name last seen in the late ’60s, the Db9-de­rived DBS re­placed the early-noughties Van­quish as the flag­ship pro­duc­tion car in 2007 and gained huge ca­chet when it was adopted as 007’s com­pany car when Daniel Craig de­buted as Bond in Casino Royale. With power ramped up to 510bhp, ag­gres­sive styling and hard­eredged dy­nam­ics, the DBS was Mr Hyde to the DB9’S Dr Jekyll. A Volante ver­sion ap­peared in 2009. At the end of 2012, the DBS was re­placed by the new Van­quish. Buy­ing guide, Van­tage is­sue 18.
