Aston Martin DBS 770 Ultimate Bids Farewell to DBS Line


The DBS name has adorned some of the most beautiful and powerful cars from Aston Martin, and the current version is no exception. After residing at the pinnacle of the British marque’s lineup since its introduction in 2018, the DBS has reached the end of its production run. In order to send it out in style with a proper final farewell, Aston Martin will produce the limited edition DBS 770 Ultimate for a few lucky customers.

“DBS has always sat at the pinnacle of the Aston Martin production model line-up,” said Aston Martin Chief Creative Officer Marek Reichman. “And now we’re infusing DBS 770 Ultimate with even more … more power, more performance purity, and all with more sophistication, more taste, and in the most considered manner.”

Under its long hood, the DBS 770 boasts a 5.2-liter twin-turbo V12 engine putting out 759 horsepower with 664 pound-feet of torque teamed with a ZF eight-speed automatic transmission. With almost 50 more horses than the “standard” DBS, the 770 Ultimate is the fastest and most powerful production Aston Martin ever. That’s enough oomph to move the DBS to 62 mph in just 3.4 seconds, 100 mph in 6.4 seconds, and an eventual top speed of 211 mph.

Aston Martin equipped the DBS Ultimate with carbon ceramic brakes featuring six-piston calipers in front and four-piston in the rear to match the upgrade in power. Pirelli developed a special P-Zero tire for the DBS, and they are fitted to unique 21-inch multi-spoke wheels that can be finished in three different colors.

The cockpit combines sportiness and elegance with Aston Martin’s Sports Plus Seats, trimmed in semi-aniline leather and Alcantara. Shift paddles are made from carbon fiber, and the DBS 770 logo has been laser etched into the center armrest. A plaque on the door sill shows the DBS 770 Ultimate logo and limited-edition numbering. Like other models in the Aston Martin lineup, the DBS 770 Ultimate can be personalized with various materials and options per customer request.

“When an iconic model generation reaches the end of production, it is important to mark the occasion with something special,” said Aston Martin Chief Technology Officer Roberto Fedeli. “In the case of the DBS 770 Ultimate, we have spared nothing in ensuring the final version of our current series production flagship is the best-ever in every respect. Not only is it the fastest and most powerful DBS in our history, thanks to a comprehensive suite of improvements to the transmission, steering, suspension, and underbody structure; it is also the best to drive,” observed Fedeli.

The DBS 770 Ultimate will be available as a Coupe or Volante convertible – Aston Martin plans to offer just 300 Coupes and 199 Volantes worldwide. The retail price is £314,000 ($385,703) for the Coupe or £337,000 ($413,955) for the Volante, but don’t bother saving your pennies – all 499 copies of the DBS 770 Ultimate have already been sold.
