Aston Martin unveiled the DBS 770 Ultimate to celebrate its 110th Birthday
Aston Martin unveiled the DBS 770 Ultimate, a model limited to just 300 coupes and 199 convertibles, both of which have already sold out. It marks the end of production of the DBS Superleggera GT, as well as the company’s 110th Anniversary.
The Aston Martin DBS 770 Ultimate is powered by a twin turbo 5.2 litre V12, outputting 759 horsepower and 900 Newton meters (Nm) of torque.
It also has an 8-speed ZF automatic gearbox, which has been recalibrated to improve shift speeds.
The DBS 770 Ultimate has a top speed of 211mph, and will do 0-60mph in just 3.5 seconds. This makes the DBS 770 Aston Martin’s most powerful production car ever made.
The 21-inch alloy wheels, fitted with Pirelli P Zero tyres were inspired by the ones found on an Aston Martin Valkyrie.
Aston Martin has bragged about the improvements made to the ‘driver-interaction’. The lateral stiffness of the carbon fibre steering wheel has been increased by 25% at the front end and the solid-mounted steering column was designed to provide “uncorrupted feedback” to the driver’s hands.
The cabin is covered in carbon fibre, including the bucket seats, which are trimmed in Alcantara and leather, that come in a sizable range of colour combinations, mirroring the vast options awarded to the few people who configured their 770 Ultimate before it sold out, and had the wallet for it.
The Aston Martin DBS 770 Ultimate was priced at £314,000 ($387,578 or €358,321) for the coupe version and £337,000 ($415,820 or €384,567) for the convertible, but they have sold out as previously mentioned. So expect them to be priced at a premium in the second hand market.
