Anderson does the Aston Martin DBS Casino Royale

Anderson has unveiled the "Casino Royale" Aston Martin DBS. The Aston Martin DBS first came out 35 years ago. But it was only one year ago that the model was introduced to cinema audiences in the James Bond movie. Anderson, which has its main office in Düsseldorf, modified the VIP automobile. The stock car comes with the added features of the Platinum Grey Edition.

It also got a power boost in the capital of North Rhein-Westphalia. From 517 hp, the vehicle now produces as high as 572 hp due to the installed exhaust system with catalyst, replacement pipes, manifold and software optimization. The "language center" of the exclusive engine has a black valve system with remote control that enables three different sound levels.

In addition, the complete exhaust system cut the weight by 21 kg. The complete matt gray paint on the sides is a contrast to the shiny gray of the perfectly selected parts that include the window borders, tailgates block and radiator case. The highlights of the lower set Aston Martin DBS by ANDERSON are a wheel and tires set of 21-inch shiny gray home-made ANDERSON rims with 255 tyres at the front and 295 at the rear.

Before the new DBS by Aston Martin for 2013 arrives at the end of 2012, the automaker will build the last 100 units of the outgoing model to be special DBS Ultimate Editions. There won’t be any powertrain or suspension upgrades for the Ultimate Editions. However, sources say that to have an idea of what the Ultimate would be like, we only need to examine the DBS Carbon Black Special Edition.

The car uses bespoke paint, which needs 50 hours to complete its manual application. It also gets special wheels with some options being offered as standard.

It is available in both coupe and Volante convertible body styles. It’s likely that most or all of these styles would be used on the commemorative cars. But then, the Ultimate won’t be available with a manual.

Scheduled to be launched from late 2012 is Aston Martin’s lineup of revised DB9 supercars that will be spearheaded by the revamped Aston Martin DBS. The Aston Martin DBS prototype was seen in Germany, clearly showing that the new DB9 will feature a revised front grille and bumpers, fresh bodyside styling and a modified cockpit.

An all-new car is due to be launched only in 2015/2016. The carmaker made subtle revisions to the exterior of the DB9 and DBS but they will receive the first major changes on the platform.

What could be considered as surprising is the new grille, which deviates from the current curved shape inspired by the 1960s DB family to a single opening that’s more contemporary.

They fitted the vehicle with a high-performance exhaust with 70 mm butterfly valves, stainless steel pipes, and chrome exhaust tips.

The modified car, which rides on 20-inch wheels, has a top speed of 199 mph (320 km/h) making it 16 mph (25 km/h) faster. Its exterior enhancements consist of a new carbon fiber front fascia and a carbon rear diffuser.

The Cyrus package presented by the tuners at Mansory is all about masculinity and power. Based on the Aston Martin DBS or the DB9, the Cyrus has a newly designed front skirt with enlarged air inlets, the carbon fiber wing extensions and the newly designed rear skirt with an integrated diffuser.

The function of the two slotted power domes on the carbon fiber bonnet is to send extra air into the 12-cylinder engine.

Other features added include the stainless steel tailpipes attached to the sonorous sport exhaust system. The car rides on large 9x20 front and 10.5x21 rear ultra-forged rims wrapped in 255/30ZR20 front and 295/25ZR21 rear Dunlop Sport Maxx tires.
