In-game descriptionEdit

This description is taken from the PAL version of Gran Turismo 2:

007, your wheels are ready. Believe James Bond and you'll attract beautiful women, fend off evil enemies and still go faster than anything else on the road in a DB-series Aston Martin. Introduced in 1966, the classic DB6 was the ultimate development of Bond's DB5, featuring even greater power, a 7.6 cm longer wheelbase and a tail redesigned to reduce aerodynamic lift and so give greater stability at high speeds. Handbuilt in Britain yet with an utterly gorgeous body styled in Italy, the DB6 was designed to blast across continents with ease. Expect no traction control or other modern driver aids to help out, just hairy-chested, primitive entertainment. Guaranteeing that is rear suspension that could have been borrowed straight from a tractor, with a coil sprung live axle located by trailing arms. The front end at least is indipendent, complete with sophisticated double wishbones, coil springs, telescopic dampers and an anti-roll bar. In truth the DB6 is a big, heavy, brutish car, tipping the scales at 1,550 kgs, with just skinny 8,15x15in tyres riding on 6-inch wide, 72-spoke wire wheels to keep it all on the road. Power-assisted steering was introduced as standard from 1969 onwards while an unusual touch is the rear Armstrong Selectaride dampers that can be stiffened up via an adjuster within the cockpit. Brakes are servo-assisted Girling discs all round, with no anti-lock system fitted. Choose from five-speed manual or three-speed automatic gearboxes. On a wide open straight the DB6 remains quicker than most modern cars. More than ample power is available on tap from a four-litre, twin-cam, in-line six-cylinder engine topped by a pair of carburettors. Up to 325 BHP is produced at 5,570 rpm. Contemporary road tests showed that the DB6 could rattle off 0-60 mph in 6.5 seconds and go on to top out at 148 mph. Exclusive, handsome, British and brutish. Take Bond's recommendation and no car does it better.
