Aston Martin DBS Superior Black 2011

This is the Aston Martin DBS Superior Black Edition by Anderson Germany.
The German tuner applies a deep-black matte paint finish to this DBS while adding carbon mirrors, tinted windows and window frames in a matte black which also coats much of the other exterior components.
For the engine tuning, Anderson dials up wattage on the V12 from 517 PS (380 kW / 510 bhp) to 565 PS (416 kW / 557 bhp) by means of an ECU remap, catalyst replacement pipes and special manifolds. The DBS also drops 21 kg in curb weight and gets an electronically-controlled vent damper on the black exhaust pipe.
Wheels are the 21-inch glossy black rims with 255 tires at the front and 295 at the back - contrasting sharply with the red brake calipers.
On the inside is the same pattern - a black carbon leather and black Alcantara finish contrasted with red diamond stitching.
 Martin DBS debuted along with Daniel Craig in the 2006 James Bond movie Casino Royale, and it is also the one that he literally blew the doors off in the opening chase sequence in the 2008 flick, Quantum Of Solace. It’s been five years since the world first saw it, but the car doesn’t seem to have aged at all. Here in the flesh, the DBS looks oh-so-lovely. Heck, it looked good even after Bond had a go in it!
What’s with the Aston here, you ask? Well, as we proclaimed on the cover of the March issue of Business Standard Motoring magazine, Aston Martin cars officially went on sale in India yesterday. Of the delectable range that is available, we sampled the top-of-the-line model, the V12-engined DBS. Of course, the Aston that tops the scale is the One-77, with its stratospheric price tag, but that’s a limited edition version, with only 77 units to be made. But I am not complaining, because here on the streets of Mumbai, I feel like the world’s most famous spy already, the ravishing supercar turning the heads of young and old alike. I feel underdressed and gauche driving this car.
