After a long 12 year search and wait, one Tuesday evening in March 2019 a midnight blue DBS appeared for sale on Autotrader. 46,000 miles on the clock and within budget. No other colour would do. I’d even considered buying a car and having it re-sprayed. Why was this colour so hard to find. After a sleepless night I called the dealer first thing and arranged to view that Wednesday afternoon. She was exactly what I wanted. A deal was agreed subject to a full AM service and new MOT. The two week wait for collection seemed to take forever. I had a lovely drive home from Hertfordshire to West Sussex and what a joy the V12 engine is. Over the the next couple of weeks I’d try and detail the car to my standard but the more I polished the worse the car looked! Bird etchings and pollen deposits were revealed so I decided to have the car professionally detailed and ceramic coated. Fortunately the car turned out beautifully and is also now easy to keep clean. I use the car fairly regularly and it’s amazing the positive reaction she receives. The odometer now reads just shy of 51,000 miles. Since owning the car I‘ve upgraded the wheels to the later spec option which has transformed the steering feel. Some items of trim that were missing have been replaced (elbow pad rest being one). She wants for nothing with a full
AM service history bar one service. I love the design of the DBS, the sound and capability to cover many miles with ease. During the factory tour last November Steve Waddingham (AM’s historian) kindly offered to research my car as he commented how rare blue is for a DBS. It turns out only 8 right hand drive were made in Midnight Blue and my car is the only one ordered in Midnight Blue with a Caspian blue interior. No wonder it took so long to find the right car!
