The name DBS has long been associated with refined elegance and powerful sports cars, and has always appeared on Aston Martin's flagship models. The DBS has been the pinnacle of Aston Martin's production models since 2018, with twin-turbo V12 power boasting ferocious performance and unparalleled style. As production of the current generation of the DBS draws to a close, Aston Martin has introduced a DBS 770 Ultimate Ultimate that surpasses all other models.
As the name suggests, the DBS 770 Ultimate is the most powerful production car ever produced by the Aston Martin brand, as well as the fastest and most powerful DBS to date. The DBS770 Ultimate is available in coupe and volante in limited quantities of 300 and 199 units, respectively, with all quotas sold out before launch.
The DBS 770 Ultimate is powered by an Aston Martin four-over-camshaft 60-degree 5.2-litre V12 engine that produces 770 ps maximum horsepower at 6,500 rpm and a continuous 900 Nm of torque from 1,800 rpm to 5,000 rpm, pushing the DBS 770 Ultimate to a top speed of 340 km/h. Thanks to improved intake and ignition paths, as well as a 7% increase in maximum turbo pressure, the horsepower and torque curves have been precisely tuned to give the engine excellent response, acceleration in all gears and a truly pure V12 sound.
Power is transmitted via a ZF 8-speed automatic transmission mounted on the rear axle of the vehicle and a mechanical limited-slip differential. In addition, the DBS 770 Ultimate has a unique transmission tuning to increase gear shifting speed for a more enjoyable driving experience. The DBS 770 Ultimate uses a carbon-ceramic brake (CCB) system: 410mm x 38mm front and 360mm x 32mm rear.
To further improve the directness of steering response and increase the level of refinement of feedback, the DBS 770 Ultimate introduces a new hard-wired steering column that enables the driver to receive more precise and direct feedback from the road ahead, feeling with maximum confidence what the front tyres are doing and having a clear and accurate grasp of the grip available at the moment.
Roberto Fedeli, Chief Technology Officer of Aston Martin, said of the DSB 770 Ultimate, "When an iconic generation reaches the end of production, it is important to commemorate the occasion with something special. In the case of the DBS 770 Ultimate, we leave no stone unturned to ensure that the final version of our current production flagship is the best ever in every way. Not only is it the fastest and most powerful DBS in our history, but thanks to comprehensive improvements to the gearbox, steering, suspension and underbody structure, it's also the best way to drive. ”
Production of the DBS 770 Ultimate will begin in the first quarter of 2023, with the first deliveries scheduled for the third quarter of 2023.
