According Autocar UK A new 550bhp Aston Martin DBS replacement will spearhead the most significant revamp of 
the company’s model range since the relaunch of the 
iconic British sports car 
maker in 2003.
the more powerful, part-carbonfibre-bodied DBS successor seeks to recreate 
the muscle car magic of the 
late 1990s Vanquish.[clap]
The Nürburgring prototype scooped by Autocar retains the existing dashboard as disguise. But insiders insist that the production model will be noticeably improved, with new switchgear, instrument binnacle, interior trim and seats, which are said to improve the driving position considerably.
Production of the new DBS is scheduled to start in the summer, although the market launch is tipped for later in the year. The Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in August and the Paris motor show a month later are pencilled in for the new DBS’s show debuts.

Prices are expected to 
rise from today’s £179,000 
for the automatic coupé to around £185,000.
