An Aston Martin DBS supercar has been recently crashed in Middletown, NJ, after its driver has pushed the gas pedal too hard and lost control of the wheel.
Driving an Aston Martin DBS can be a full time job because no one wants even a scratch on his/her ride, especially if it’s signed by Aston Martin. But when you add alcohol and cocaine into the picture than you can bet your reputation that the incident will end up in our news. This is exactly the case of a 2012 Aston Martin DBS, which was crashed by its 39-year old driver into a tree at 1 in the morning. The driver was drunk and he was also charged with cocaine possession. He was then taken to the hospital with serious injuries.
As a quick reminder, the Aston Martin DBS is a high performance version of the DB9 model, and this has been in production ever since 2007. The DBS name has also been used on a model made between 1967 and 1972, and the modern version is currently being assembled in Gaydon, England. The Aston Martin DBS is replacing the Vanquish S and it’s coming as a two-door coupe, made on the Aston Martin VH platform. The DBS is powered by a 5.9 liter V12 engine which is generating 510 HP, mated to a six-speed manual transmission as standard or a six-speed automatic available as an option.
