The DBS 770 Ultimate, Aston Martin’s hottest and most potent iteration ever, is the final DBS of the current generation. The DBS 770, which is only available in 499 copies and is regrettably sold out, is not only the most potent DBS yet but also Aston’s most potent production road car. The 770 receives a number of improvements, both externally and internally, that are targeted at enhancing performance in a variety of areas.
The engine plays a role in the DBS 770 Ultimate’s moniker. With an upgrade, the twin-turbo 5.2-liter V12 now generates 759 horsepower (770PS, hence the name) and 900 Nm of torque. The DBS 770 Ultimate, the hottest and most potent version of Aston Martin’s current-generation DBS, is used to say goodbye to the model. With an 8-speed ZF automatic gearbox, the maximum torque, according to All Aston, is available at 1,800 rpm and is only available in 499 units. Modifications to the air and ignition routes and a 7% increase in turbo boost pressure are among the engine’s modifications over the standard V12 DBS. For this run-out special edition, the gearbox has also undergone calibration, resulting in quicker shift times.
Added lateral and torsional stiffness at the front and rear, as well as a redesigned solid-mounted steering column for improved input, are further structural modifications. Furthermore, a customised tuning has been done to the adaptive suspension setup to improve handling and composure without degrading ride quality.
In terms of appearance, the DBS 770 receives an updated front bumper with a new splitter and bigger side vents for better airflow into the engine. To aid in the removal of heat from the engine bay, the bonnet has a sizable horse-shoe vent, akin to that on the V12 Vantage. In addition to using the substance in the cantrails and windscreen surround, the DBS 770 has new carbon fibre side sills. To improve aerodynamics, the rear bumper has undergone a facelift and now has a more noticeable splitter. Unique 21-inch alloy wheels made specifically for the 770 complete the look.
Regarding the interior, the DBS 770 receives some extra equipment and finishing touches to differentiate itself from the ordinary DBS. Although the inside of the DBS 770 Ultimate is identical to that of the normal model in terms of design, it does feature Sport Plus seats and carbon fibre paddle shifters as standard, as well as bespoke trimming and DBS 770 Ultimate insignia placed throughout. The Q Bespoke branch of Aston Martin offers buyers a variety of options to customise their vehicle.
Later this quarter, Aston will begin producing the DBS 770 Ultimate, producing 300 coupes and 199 convertibles (convertibles). With delivery starting in the third quarter of 2023, all units have already been reserved by buyers.
