With the Bentley out of contention, there are very few luxury cars that can match the Aston’s performance. Sure, a Porsche 911 GT2 RS is faster, but we wouldn’t call it a comfortable GT car. To find competitors for the DBS, we have to look below the realm of exotics and examine some of the “normal” luxury automakers, and even a few domestics. First, we have to consider the Mercedes S63 AMG coupe. We recently tested the convertible, and managed a 0-60 mph run of 3.3 seconds (that’s faster than DBS’ estimated time). Even though the AMG is down over 100 hp on the Aston, it’s able to keep up thanks to all-wheel-drive grip.
