Talk about going out with a bang. The final run of Aston Martin DBS models will be the most potent in the British brand’s 110-year history. Available in both Coupe and Volante form, DBS770 Ultimate will be built in strictly limited numbers 300 Coupes and 199 Volantes. All models were sold ahead of release.
Aston Martin says the DBS 770 Ultimate is the most powerful production car the automaker has ever produced. Under that long hood is a 5.2-liter V-12 engine producing 759 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque, which is delivered to the rear wheels through an eight-speed ZF automatic which has been recalibrated for faster shifts, and a mechanical limited slip differential is fitted to the rear axle. It also utilizes Aston Martin’s Carbon Ceramic Braking (CCB) system. To improve the direct nature of the steering response and increase the level of detailed feedback, the Ultimate is fitted with a new solid-mounted steering column. The driver can enjoy a more precise connection with the road ahead.
The new 21-inch wheels will be styled after the Aston Martin’s Valkyrie and Victor, with the option of either satin silver, satin black, or satin black with diamond-turned finishes. Familiar to any fans of the DBS, the interior will be given new bespoke trim, coloring, and other unique 770 Ultimate touches. Likewise, the exterior gets some updates to improve aerodynamic balance, such as a new front splitter, horseshoe vent, and rear diffuser.
Hop inside and you’ll find seats trimmed in semi-aniline leather and Alcantara, exposed carbon fiber for the center console and shift paddles, plus a rather superfluous strap and buckle atop the center armrest. The model is fitted with a unique set of sill plaques showcasing the Aston Martin Wings, DBS 770 Ultimate logo and Limited-Edition numbering.
Production on the vehicles should start soon, with deliveries coming in Q3 of this year. The automaker didn’t reveal pricing since order books are already closed. Given the extra power and the limited availability, the special edition will definitely be more pricey than the DBS Superleggera which starts from around $330,000. Discover Opulent Club on Apple news.
