DBS one of my all time favorite car designs. Bonus that you can find them in manual.

Yes, 100%

Amigo, the white one is, in fact, a manual! I test drove both back-to-back because I've never previously driven either, and I felt it would be most illuminating to feel how they perform one after another.... The DBS is a 2011 model year, and the Vanquish ... 

Ahh. Most 2014 Vanquishes are 6 speed in USA.

USA didn't really get the 8 speed transmission until the 2015 model year. I actually like the look of the DBS more than the rear of the Vanquish. Something about the DBS looks more aggressive. The Vanquish is more elegant. The interior of the Vanquish win... 

My mistake there!

I totally mistyped 8-speed instead of 6-speed . Yes, the 2015+ MY have the better eight speed Touchtronic, thanks a lot for clarifying that straight off the bat! You are 100% accurate in saying that the auto trans are geared for efficiency, I truly had to...  

Here's the detailed run-down of the DBS body....

I guess it's somewhere in between yours and mine initial thoughts - the hood, front fenders and trunk lid are full carbon-fiber, while the door openings and trunk lid surround are something called 'Carbon Preform RTM' .... ...

Anytime Patrick!

Both of them, please have a look at the review I wrote in my answer above!


 By: ArmisT : November 23rd, 2022-06:09
I must have posed my question while you were writing all the above. Great review and experience.

You did LoL :)

 By: InHavenPro : November 23rd, 2022-06:13
My sincere pleasure and privilege in doing so! Cheers, Filip

The same way as Mike

Give us an impression of life in Southern Callifornia.

I hope so!

I was so busy doing the test drives....

 By: InHavenPro : November 23rd, 2022-17:06
that I only managed to snap this great shot of the DBS, what a ride!! As I mentioned above, the MT DBS is The One as far as I'm concerned. The ride is more supple, and the visibility out of the car a little better, on top of the most glorious 6 speed MT p...  

LoL, same here =)

It will happen soon enough my friend . Thanks for the sentiments, Filip

It will happen to you? Cool!

No more than a year or so from now, but we'll see, I always lean conservative when making such statements .

Hey, that’s in my ‘hood

I did an Aston test there too (some years ago) Test Cazalea

Believe me Mike,

 By: InHavenPro : November 24th, 2022-02:03
I thought of you roaming the streets of SD!

If it’s not a daily driver.

 By: jp884 : November 24th, 2022-04:55
I would most certainly go for the manual. Nothing like rowing your own gears and hearing the engine blip and howl. It makes an otherwise mundane drive an exciting one. Hopefully, you get yours soon👍 ...  

Agreed wholeheartedly!

 By: InHavenPro : November 24th, 2022-05:05
Believe me, I'm the type of person who would actually daily drive a manual transmission since I've already done so for a few years during my undergrad school studies in Europe! The MT in the DBS is marvelous, despite the heavy clutch which does take a lit... 

Is the watch in option? :))))
