Aston Martin said that the DBS will only produce 600nm from first to second gear and 750 to third and 900 to the rest of the gears,

they limit the torque from first to third gear to keep the gearbox from not exploding

ASTON MARTIN news quote>"Saudi Arabia in talks to take stake in Aston Martin."

Further>"Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund is in talks with Aston Martin about taking a stake in the business, as the luxury carmaker seeks to raise additional finances for its next range of cars, according to four people.

The PIF, which already has holdings in Lucid Motors and McLaren, is in talks to take fresh equity in the business that could be worth £200mn, the people said. Talks are at an early stage, they added.

Aston is facing the challenge of funding its next generation of sports cars, and its first push into electric vehicles, at a time when the business is saddled with debt and producing no net cash."

Aston Martin on the financial side REALLY need to get it together. Automotive is a BUISNESS first. And if profits are difficult then the entire organisation is in danger. Production Engineering Design Retail and Global dealer networks Supply chain and so much more!

The 0-400m in my estimation was unusually slow for the 0-100 and 0-200 performance metrics given solely because they were the averages based on magazine tests, not because I wanted to be pessimistic or I wanted to make stuff up. In fact I am replicating numbers for any and all performance cars.

Outside of the pre-production prototype press car, the DBS certainly isn't going to do better than an 11.4 in a 400m run and that's not even an average. Unprepped dragstrip average is more like 11.6-11.7 due to RWD and the outdated 8-speed auto also used in Hellcat (Dodge), SVO (Jaguar), and Trofeo (Maserati) vehicles. On regular surface, 12.0-12.1. Actually, this car is JUST AS FAST as the Hellcat Redeye Challenger and Camaro ZL1, and slower than the Shelby GT500.

In terms of straight-line performance before 130mph, it slots between a Jaguar F-Type R and a base BMW M8 (let alone Competition) as far as AWD cars go.

Corrected 0-100-> 4.100s
Corrected 0-200-> 11.068s
Corrected 0-300-> 31.046s

With the 3.7/10.7 0-100/200 average timing figures should the car do multiple 0-400m runs in the range of 11.5-11.7s.

There is currently ONLY ONE European equivalent to the muscle car, and it's the Aston Martin DBS (including both the Coupe and Volante body styles). It literally rides on the same chassis as the DB11, which in turn is a reworked Mercedes-AMG C63 S — similar in both practicality and size to the usual suspects: the Chevy Camaro ZL1 1LE, Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, Ford-Shelby Mustang GT500 CFTP, and Lexus RC F Fuji Speedway Edition.

Both the BMW M4 and its larger M8 cousin are too chic in both dynamic and design, and they also cross the boundaries for muscle-car ride quality. VW is more focused on rally cars and comfort cars (Audi), ultra-GT cars (Bentley), and super-sports cars (Porsche).

By the way, I can't wait for the V12 Vantage to come out! (Not quite a muscle car since it will rival the Corvette Z06 and the 911 GT3 RS/Turbo S twins.)

Even though there was a power increase, the DBS is actually a DOWNGRADE from the Vanquish. The Vanquish was a separate model from the DB9, whereas the DBS is a barely sexier DB11 AMR. If anything, the current DBS should have been positioned as the successor to the Virage.

The Vanquish used to compete (not in power, but in displacement) with likes of the Aventador LP700-4 and F12berlinetta. These were all luxurious masterpieces, with two of those three being grand tourers. They were basically the Bentley/Rolls-Royce of supercars.

The DBS (much smaller displacement with twin turbochargers) competes only with Huracán EVO LP640-4 (naturally aspirated, but same displacement and similar post-60mph acceleration numbers) and 911 Turbo S (either the 991.2 or 992.1 series).

The DBS also falls somewhere between a 488 and an F8 outside of straight-line performance; top speed is higher than 488, power output is higher than 488, but acceleration is the area where it is still a bit slower.

So in spite of the DBS being a grand tourer, it is relatively a frat-boy, semi-track-toy machine which is almost similar to the Ferrari F8 Tributo and McLaren 720S in terms of fundamentalism (except, of course, the DBS retains the front-engine layout of the Vanquish).

Expect the DBS to soon be replaced by the mid-engine "Vanquish" which is (ooooh!) soon to be slotted between this exact car and the Valhalla. While the Valhalla competes with the SF90 Stradale, the new Vanquish will compete with the 296 GTB. Aston Martin has become officially more Ferrari than Bentley in terms of fundamentalism.

Aston Martin will soon take over McLaren as the next British equivalent to the iconic Ferrari brand.

It should be noted that while Aston DOES claim a 3.4 sprint to 100, that's not its actual acceleration time. It doesn't even do that with a rollout.

The problem is that Aston Martin has a reputation of using prepped dragstrips as a way of taking advantage of rear-wheel-drive owners (not as optimistic as Dodge, but still pretty liberal with its claims). Excluding the rollout, the Astons are always slower than claimed.

By the way, I'd like to point out— that 136mph trap speed is ABSOLUTE BULLSHIT. No way in ****ing hell is a bone-stock DBS going to trap that high in the ¼mile.

I don't trust those tests where the press/ringer car is the one being tested.

To compare:
Car & Driver had a 911 Turbo S at 137mph, Huracan EVO AWD at 136mph, Shelby GT500 at 132mph, and a Hellcat Redeye Challenger (3.09 gear) at 128mph. The Aston, too, trapped 128— it was literally no faster in the quartermile department than the Redeye.

Motor Trend, I believe, had the 911TS at 135mph, the Huracan EVO AWD and the GT500 both at 133mph, and the Redeye also at 128mph. The Aston was barely faster at 129mph.

I mentioned those four cars because they are potential competitors to this car. If it was, indeed, trapping 136mph, then it would almost be on par with an 812 which traps 138-140 daily and actually reproduces those numbers. Even a 488 or a (Ford) GT can barely trap 135.

Contrary to popular belief from the Aston fanboys and paid Top Gear journalists, the Ferrari 812 Superfast is not the DBS's competitor. The DBS isn't even scared of that car. The 812 is what the Victor rivals, but the 812 needed the Competizione variant to do just that - and even that is a direct successor now to the "series-production" Superfast and GTS models.

When the DBS Superleggera was first released, it was to rival the GTC4Lusso that had the V12/AWD option. It was NEVER an 812 competitor, because if it was one then it would ALSO rival the Lamborghini Aventador and the McLaren 720S.
