2023 Aston Martin DBS 770 Ultimate unveiled as final edition flagship

The current Aston Martin DBS V12 sports car says goodbye with a limited 770 Ultimate Edition, with more power and a sportier look.

the 2023 Aston Martin DBS 770 Ultimate was unveiled as the final iteration of its current flagship sports car – and all 499 examples have already sold out.

The DBS 770 Ultimate is billed as the final version of Aston Martin’s current-generation DBS range – before a major update due in the next 12 months – bringing more V12 power, a sharper chassis and an aggressive stance new look.

Only 499 examples of the DBS 770 Ultimate will be built – over 300 coupés and 199 Volante Cabriolets – and all have been spoken for. Worldwide deliveries are scheduled to begin in the third quarter of 2023 (July to September).

An Aston Martin representative in Australia could not confirm this drive if any Australians have ordered a DBS 770 or how much the car would cost in Australia.

Power comes from an upgraded version of the 5.2-litre twin-turbo V12 engine from the DBS range, which now develops 566kW and 900Nm – 33kW (but 0Nm) more thanks to increased turbo boost pressure and revised ” air and intake passages”.

Aston Martin calls the DBS 770 the “most powerful production Aston Martin ever” – cautious phrasing as the F1-inspired Valkyrie hypercar is 300kW more powerful, but its bespoke nature means the automaker is not allowed to consider it a “production model”. .

Aston Martin sends power to the rear wheels via a retuned eight-speed automatic transmission and a mechanical limited-slip differential, and claims a top speed of 340km/h – unchanged from the regular DBS.

Under the skin, the British sports car specialist claims that it has added an “improved” front cross member and a thicker rear underbody to improve the car’s torsional stiffness by 3 per cent and front-end lateral stiffness by 25 per cent.

The adaptive suspension has been overhauled with new damper calibration and software tuning, while a solidly mounted steering column has been incorporated to improve steering response and feedback, the company says.

The DBS 770 Ultimate rides on unique 21-inch alloy wheels – available in satin silver, satin black or two-tone satin black and metallic finish – with Pirelli P Zero tires in size 265/35 R21 at the front and 305/30 R21 at the rear.

The carbon-ceramic brakes behind the alloys are carried over from the standard DBS and measure 410mm at the front and 360mm at the rear.

Onlookers can tell the DBS 770 Ultimate apart from the standard model on the road with its aggressive body kit, including a new front splitter (but an unchanged grille), a “horseshoe” vent on the hood, larger carbon fiber side skirts, and a new rear diffuser.

The window surrounds, mirror caps and the front wheelhouse vents are made of carbon twill as standard.

Inside, buyers can choose between Sports Plus seats upholstered in quilted semi-aniline leather and Alcantara, or a race-ready “Performance” seat (shown) with a carbon fiber backrest.

Other changes include contrasting interior trim colors linked to the stitching, a “bespoke” strap and buckle over the center armrest (with a laser-etched DBS 770 Ultimate logo), carbon fiber steering wheel shift paddles, and unique door sill plates.

Buyers can further customize their car through the Q by Aston Martin program, which offers options for Q-specific exterior paint finishes, body-colored wheels, tinted carbon fiber and woven leather seat inserts, trim inserts and carbon fiber steering wheels.

production of 2023 Aston Martin DBS 770 Ultimate scheduled to begin before the end of March, ahead of first customer deliveries between July and September 2023 (third quarter of this year).

Australian pricing and availability are yet to be confirmed.
