I can’t believe such a limited and specific car from a high performance luxury brand would make the car in a manual transmission; well at least that’s what it looks like in the video. Aston Martins powerful V12 used to be matted to a manual transmission and last time that was seen in James Bond was the DBS in Casino Royale. The last car to have it was the V12 Vantage. However, I’m unsure if this car will have a v8, turbo v8, or v12. However, I’m glad to see the filmmakers convinced Aston to build this car, hopefully it will make innovators realize the digital/non-mechanical movement in cars isn’t all that great.
#2 Aston Martin DBS Carbon
OK how can a pretty car become prettier than it was before?! Well simple sprinkle some carbon fibre over it and watch it become prettier. I swear this is one of my all time favorite cars. Aston Martin definitely reinvented itself with the DB9 and made an even greater comeback with the DBS. Its great to see Aston still has a few tricks up its sleeve. The sprinkles of carbon fibre are found on the exterior (diffusers & mirrors) and interior dash. Custom diamond spun wheels for the carbon edition as well as a paint job that literally takes 27 hours to finish as well as 7 coats of paint! My only problem with this car is that a manual transmission wasn’t offered for this edition.
