Ulrich Bez, CEO, Aston Martin , unveiled the 2008 Aston Martin DBS at the 57th Annual Pebble Beach Concours dâ€™Elegance on August 16th. Aston Martin will be the featured marque at the Concours this year.
One of the reasons journalists love Bez is because he can’t help himself: he spills the beans. There were only a handful of journalists that got up for the 8am unveil on the 18th green of Pebble Beach, but Bez surprised us with a gift and gave us the price that wasn’t supposed to be unveiled until the Frankfurt auto show.
The hand-built 2008 Aston Martin DBS will be priced “around $265,000″ and the V-12 will produce 380 kW (510 bhp/517 PS), a top speed of 191mph (302km/h) and a 0-62mph (0-100km/h) time of 4.3 seconds.
