At this year's Villa d'Este Concours d'Elegance at Lake Como in Italy, Aston Martin once again wow'd the participants with another drop-dead gorgeous reveal.
This isn't the first time the British marque took to Italy to reveal an exciting project.
Recall that the One-77 was revealed at the same event as was the V12 Zagato.

Though old-timers were more likely to be a bit put-off by this carbon fiber'd, two-tone wheel'd Aston, once again remind yourself this is the hardcore DBS variant. The more toned down Astons will not likely feature the various aggressively designed elements.
