Despite the huge popularity of the DBX SUV, Aston Martin’s path has always been defined by coupes. The latest in the DB flagship coupé range, the DB11, is in its final stages in its sporty DBS guise. To highlight this milestone in the history of the brand, a very special body was created.
So here is the DBS 770 Ultimate, a very special creation that claims to be the most powerful production model ever assembled by the English manufacturer. The number 770 shows its metric horsepower, or 760 horsepower this side of the Atlantic. This cavalry is still produced by a home-made engine and a turbocharged 5.2-liter V12, the turbocharger of which has been increased pressure. The ZF eight-speed automatic transmission is still part of the range.
Furthermore, note the elegant honeycomb edging and the various functional changes made to dress this DBS’ gorgeous, including cut-out gills in the front fenders and redesigned rear diffuser. All wrap front axle is stiffer and damping reworked for performance.
Only 499 examples will be produced – 300 coupes and 199 convertibles -, but the order book is already full for what is likely to be one of Aston Martin’s latest V12 models.
