Acceleration of the DBS is relatively powerful in contrast to the fastest A class cars in the game. It only gains a moderate amount of speed when using nitrous. The DBS turns well in both slow and quick turns without being a handful. Top speed is 191 mph (308 km/h).
Purchasing the Movie Legends pack will immediately unlock the DBS within Singleplayer. It is unlocked in Multiplayer upon the player completing 6 SpeedList events in the Pontiac Firebird T/A.
Its statistics are comparable to the V12 Vantage although the DBS is lighter.
The Aston Martin DBS in Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit (2010) can be selected with either a California Sage, Casino Royale, Glacial Blue, Lightning Silver, Midnight Blue, Onyx Black, Slate Blue, Stratus White, Sunburst Yellow or Toro Red body paint colour.
