Do you know what else equals cheap publicity? Allowing a 31-year-old automotive photographer to snap some pictures of a 2010 Aston Martin DBS Volante in the rain. As a stickler for pristine weather conditions when photographing cars, I politely declined. Yeah, right.
The 2010 Aston Martin DBS Volante is one of the more aesthetically pleasing exotic cars on the market today. Instead of the Lamborghini creased-angled-wedge look (which is as boring as Porsche’s designs), Aston Martin keeps the DBS sleek and wide with rounded features in the four corners accentuated by its headlights and taillights. The DBS keeps it classy by adding highlights of carbon fiber on the chin spoiler, rear bumper and in various places along the interior. Luxurious leather, metal trims and refined plastic finish off the comfortable cabin. From the front, the hood vents are one of the prettiest components of the DBS’ 6.0-liter V-12 engine. The car’s overall design is tied together nicely by the sleek hips of each wheel well and fender. From the profile, this car wants to cruise at high speeds.
As the photos prove, the autumn rain did not stop me from snapping away with my camera. It just quickened my pace! Check out the full-screen player after the jump.
