There is a well-known saying that all good things come to an end, and the same can be said for the Aston Martin DBS 770 Ultimate. The car shown in the photos represents the peak of production for the current generation DBS, which is a refined term for the end of the line.
Whether the name will return with pure V12 power is not yet certain, but the 770 Ultimate leaves the scene as the most powerful DBS of all time.
Power and Performance
The DBS 770 Ultimate is powered by a 5.2-liter V12 biturbo engine that develops a staggering 759 horsepower and a colossal 900 Nm of torque.
Engineers worked on the intake and ignition and increased the precharge pressure by seven percent. Additional fine-tuning of the engine parameters contributed to the final power, which is enough to accelerate the big GT to a top speed of 340 km/h.
The special calibration of the 8-speed automatic transmission also contributed to this impressive performance.
Design and Suspension
Increasing power usually requires better brakes, but the standard DBS ceramic brakes are up to the task.
The car is equipped with 16.1-inch front discs and 14.1-inch rear discs. The steering has also been improved, which is now more precise, and the driver gets better feedback. The chassis is stiffer thanks to suspension calibration.
"As its name suggests, the DBS 770 Ultimate is an emphatic last word. The most powerful production Aston Martin ever, and the fastest and most powerful DBS to date, extensive design and engineering enhancements ensure the DBS 770 Ultimate is an unforgettable and highly-collectible celebration of Aston Martin’s flagship Super GT," Aston Martin says. "To further improve the direct nature of the steering response and increase the level of detailed feedback, DBS 770 Ultimate introduces a new solid mounted steering column, allowing the driver to enjoy a more precise connection with the road ahead, feeling what the front tyres are doing with utmost confidence and accurately gauge available grip," Aston Martin explains.
Interior and Availability
The interior is equipped with Sports Plus seats covered in leather and Alcantara, and the number plate indicates that the model is limited to 499 examples. Among them will be 300 coupes and 199 Volante versions, but prices have not been publicly announced.
Production will begin in the first quarter of this year, and deliveries are expected in the summer. This marks the end of an era for the DBS, and fans of the car will undoubtedly miss the model. However, the DBS 770 Ultimate leaves the scene as the most powerful DBS of all time, and it will be remembered as a true testament to Aston Martin's engineering prowess.
