Latest spy pictures of the new Aston Martin DBS ahead of its debut this summer

The replacement for the Aston Martin DBS has been caught testing ahead of its unveiling this summer.

These pictures show that the new car gets a more sculpted front end, which takes inspiration from the One-77 supercar. Larger air intakes, a chiselled bumper and reshaped headlights complete the aggressive look.

At the back, the new DBS gets an intricate rear spoiler and more muscular haunches.

The 6.0-litre V12 engine will remain, but with a power boost to around 550bhp, so expect 0-62mph in around four seconds and a 200mph top speed.

The DBS name is expected to be ditched, and a badge from the past resurrected. Sales will start towards the end of the year, with a price tag of around £200,000.
