Well, this car is that purdy. So, it's okay to repost it many times. But, just the originator of the thread.

From www.autocarmagazine.com...

Aston Martin has revealed official images of James Bond's next car - and hinted strongly at the design direction for the next Vanquish.

Bond will drive the new DBS in Casino Royale, due for release later this year. The car is based on both the DB9 and DBR9 race car. Marek Reichman, Aston's design director, said, '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.'

The next Vanquish is almost certain to be based on a DB9 and since the DBS sits between road and race, it is likely to provide strong styling cues for the high-performance model.

The movie car uses a 6.0-litre V12, features 10-spoke 20in alloy wheels and reportedly weighs over 100kg less than a DB9. Inside it features bucket racing seats and a removable stopwatch - plus the usual modifications from Q branch, one assumes...
And for you yacks, this is a DBRS9:

Call me complacent. But, I'll gladly "downgrade" to a DBS.

I'd swear off of robots for this car...

I'll promise to never touch, play, fondle, or transform a robot for the rest of my life if I can get my hands on this car...I swear.

Cool Spied: Aston Martin DBRS 9 (roadgoing DBS)

OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG...

Spied: Aston Martin DBRS 9 (roadgoing DBS)
While the recently-unveiled Aston Martin DBS will be unique to the forthcoming "Casino Royale" James Bond film, a nearly identical car will be sold to the general public under the 'DBRS 9' moniker, according to Hans G. Lehmann. What's more, the basic design of the DBS will form the basis for the next-generation DB9, according to the super spy photographer. The "RS" variant will have a wider track, lower ground clearance, and bold scoops and air intakes up front. According to rumours, the V12 engine's performance was boosted from 450 hp to more than 500 hp for the DBRS 9.

You only want it for the looks and not the performance. Sounds shallow.

I can name other cars that are better sport cars than this, of course im assuming based on Aston Martins other production cars. Only time will tell if this car is "better" than the other sport cars.

It looks like a hot cruiser though.

It sounds impossible. Aston Martin's designs are the best I've seen.

I'd argue you are reaching...and yet he did not say dads, grandfathers, of boyfriends....hence it may be true he hates females.
