This late 70's beauty passed me on Highway A16 near Rotterdam in The Netherlands recently. What a timeless gem.

Friends six speed manual DBS which seems to be rare combined with pearl white flake paint DBS 6 speed MANUAL. The gearbox is very forgiving and it has some nice extras like matte carbon fiber trim interior in places along the door cards & carbon diffuser, ceramic rotors, piano black dash trim pieces and sweet aluminum shift *** and other aluminum dash accents that contrast nicely w/ the piano black. Carbon fiber everywhere else side view mirrors, rear diffuser, front facia all CF, Exhaust sounds mean as hell, 7600 miles on odometer 10,000 mile service already done @ AM dealer. Huge ceramic brakes all around and there's an Aston umbrella in the trunk. Helping a friend sell and at the same time attempting to become more educated on what he has here, info appreciated TIA

Nothing rare about a manual coupe; common as sand on a beach. Now if it was a convertible then that would be a rare beast. There are no extras on a DBS; everything you mention is standard equipment and/or choices made at order time.

Ah yes thank you sir, yours is quite wonderful as well, I want an aston myself one day for sure! I spend most of my time over on the Audi forums, came over here and wanted to post up pics in the thread while awaiting an approval from the AMOC forum mods, mod here may remove the for sale data if necessary, OTOH seems I need thirty posts to list in the for sale section so if anything just leave the pics, kind gent from Katie's cars coffee provided them and I was pleased with them & wanted to share

Do you have any production numbers to point to that back that statement? According to very basic empirical data I collected last few months while researching the market, I noted 30 DBS 08-12's for sale nationwide of those 30 only 2 were Six Speed Manual and neither of the manuals were white. I was told white is an exclusive option, however have not been able to independently verify that as yet.

Probably around 600-800 or so manuals, the bulk of them 08/09, with the rest spread out thru 10, 11 and 12 (there aren't any 08s in the US). Morning Frost is a common color (most common after your ubiquitous black, gray, silvers). And MF is certainly not exclusive to the DBS...lots of DB9s (and Virage) in that very popular color. There were 3400 DBSs produced.

This is not a Morning Frost , per Stuart at Velocity (BTW thank you sir) the build data indicates this as Stratus White (Contemporary). While I understand that stratus white is not uncommon across the entire Aston Martin line vehicles, how many Stratus White on Obsidian Black/Citrus Grey two tone interior DBS's have you seen? In Six Speed Manual? No way this car's is not rare!


Exterior Paint Colour:
Stratus White (Contemporary)
Trim Upper Colour:
Obsidian Black Semi Aniline Leather
Trim Upper Stitching:
Silver
Trim Lower Colour:
Obsidian Black Semi Aniline Leather
Trim Lower Stitching:
Silver
Seat Inner Colour:
Cirrus Grey (Fast Track)
Headlining Inner:
Cirrus Grey (Fast Track)
Steering Wheel Colour:
Obsidian Black

Look, you're the guy who said it was pearl white and manual, and that that was a rare combo. And I said it wasn't. Lots of MF and manuals.

Now, if you want to suggest that Stratus White with black/gray interior, manual is a rare combo, then sure if you are going to specify every little spec difference then lots and lots of DBSs have rare combinations since they could be ordered with any combo of interior/exterior color.

Seems to me the guy is trolling to keep his (not so veiled) for sale ad going.

Obviously when I began posting on here before I was fortunate enough to run across Stuart I didn't know my *** from my elbow w/ respect to Aston Martin's or DBS's.

As I scale the learning curve w/ respect to this platform it's become apparent that there were in fact options available on DBS builds which runs contrary to the information you provided upthread when you said color combo was as "common as sand on a beach" and that "there are no extras on a DBS" I found otherwise after researching the matter, in fact the following were available as "extras":

Fascia Trim Piano Black $1595
Paint - Other Manufacturer’s Color $2,805
Paint - Other Manufacturer’s Special Color $3,785
Paint - Previous AML Color $1,895
Paint - Special AML COlor/Match to Sampl $3,785
2+2 Seating arrangement $3,785
20" 10-Spoke Graphite Diamond Turned Wheels $3,785
20" 10-Spoke Silver Diamond Turned Wheels $3,190

As previously stated my purpose here is to become more educated about the car and it's relative rarity, as it seems there are some knowledgeable owners/enthusiasts on here who can provide further info.

While the car is for sale, the forum mods removed the links I posted and made it abundantly clear that I'm not allowed to post in the FS section until I hit thirty posts. So if you want to consider this trolling, that's fine call it as you see it.

I heard from a gentleman at Katies cars and coffee in Vienna VA (who was wearing an aston martin racing jacket & said he owned 3 AM's) that the first 800 DBS were all Manual. Guessing those were the 08 (rest of world) & 09's US + row. I was also told by the same guy that the B&O stereo system did not come until after the 800th DBS build. He seemed to think that very few 10, 11 and 12's came with six speed manual trans. He also referred me to Vantage magazine for extra info....

Autos came much sooner than 800, while B&O came around 750.
