Recently Las Vegas became the home of the first Aston Martin DBS V12 in the United States. Robert Bigelow, founder of Bigelow Aerospace, welcomed the elite sports car that he'd acquired at Rock for the Cure, a Nevada Cancer Institute charitable auction, in 2006--and "What's On, The Las Vegas Guide" was there to cover it.

Although bidding was intense, Bigelow walked away with the car for the price of $630,000. The vehicle is a model of the Bond car that appears in the film "Casino Royale."

Representatives from Aston Martin, Gaudin Automotive Group and the Nevada Cancer Institute were all on hand to see Bigelow receive the car.

"This car is an absolute sensation to drive," said Garrett Bailey of Aston Martin. "It's got a six-liter engine, 510 horsepower and diamond polished wheels. The DBS V12 is beautifully tailored and muscular and more powerful than you can imagine."
