Bond’s Manual 2008 Aston Martin DBS Is On Carsales

2008 Aston Martin DBS

Bond fanboys rejoice, as quite possibly the most attractive modern Aston Martin ever featured in the spy franchise – the 2008 Aston Martin DBS – has just popped up on Carsales in Victoria.

This 2008 six-speed manual is wrapped in a ‘Quantum of Solace Grey’ and boasts the British automaker’s refined 6.0-litre V12 engine. The rear wheels put down 380kW and can do the dash in 4.3 seconds. It’s also recently undergone a clutch replacement by an official Aston Martin technician.

According to the listing, the car is part of a collection and, while occasionally driven (36,400kms on the clock over 12 years), it’s been fastidiously maintained by Carcierege and washed weekly.

The deep black interior sports heated front seats, iPhone connectivity, GPS navigation, a premium sound system and cruise control.

Possibly the hottest commodity on the car itself is its plates – BMT 216 – taken straight off Bond’s DB5 from the franchise. The listing specifies that these plates are not for sale, unfortunately, and the car will be sold with standard VIC plates. Presumably, they’ll be reassigned to whatever Aston will soon fill the gap in this seller’s collection.

This 2008 Aston Martin DBS is listed on Carsales for AU$265,000, and you can see more over at the Carsales website.
