RC2 have been hugely successful with their 007 collection of 1/18th and 1/64th scale vehicles, which so far have seen six classic cars from the Bond films being produced. These have included the Aston Martin DB5 from "Goldfinger", the Vanquish from "Die Another Day" and the most recent Lotus Esprit from "The Spy Who Loved Me".

Ray Wootton, RC2's head of sales and said about the forthcoming DBS: "I cannot give details at this stage. What I can say is that the model DBS will feature great action as all our Bond cars have in the past." Wootton added: "This is going to be a premium model with fantastic detail that will sell for around £35. I am sure that pre-orders, which are taken now, will account for the entire first shipment. We are also working with Aston Martin on producing a special limited edition model of no more than 1,000."
