An Aston Martin DBS has been involved in a terrible head-on crash recently in New Jersey which left it looking all good for the crusher.

Our Car Crashes section is filled with Ferraris and Lamborghinis but every once in a while, a vehicle which is made outside Italy is ending up in here, like this Aston Martin DBS. According to the guys from Wrecked Exotics, the impressive British sports car has been involved recently in a head-on crash. The incident took place in Princeton, New Jersey, and it left the model in an almost unrecognizable shape. We are not sure how the crash happened or what happened to the occupants of both vehicles so if you know more on the subject, please feel free to share.

The Aston Martin DBS has been based on the DB9, which is in production at the Gaydon facility since 2004. The model in question was put together between 2007 and 2012 and it was riding on the VH platform, sharing the roof, the side screens and the wheelbase with the DB9, but sitting 25 mm lower than it and being 40 mm wider. The engine found under the hood of the Aston Martin DBS is a 6-liter V12, which is capable of producing a total of 510 HP (380 kW) and 569 Nm (420 lb-ft) of torque, connected to a 6-speed manual transmission. This is enough to allow it to reach a top speed of 307 km/h (191 mph).
