The Aston Martin DBS 770 Ultimate will be the most powerful production Aston Martin ever.

It will also be the fastest and most powerful DBS to date.

The DBS 770 Ultimate really is the brand’s way of saying a furious farewell to its super GT flagship in the most unforgettable of ways.


Unleashing the beast

DBS 770 Ultimate features a ferocious iteration of Aston Martin’s 5.2-liter V12 engine.

It now develops 770PS (759 bhp) and a colossal 900Nm (664 lb-ft) of torque, propelling DBS 770 Ultimate to a top speed of 340 km/h (211 mph).

The engine’s air and ignition pathways have been modified with a seven percent increase in maximum turbo boost pressure.

Power is fed through a ZF 8-speed automatic transmission and mechanical Limited-Slip Differential (LSD) mounted at the rear of the car.

The transmission has been calibrated enhancing shift speeds and driver interaction, which Aston says contributes to a truly connected driving experience.

DBS 770 Ultimate has a new solid mounted steering column, too, further improving the direct nature of the steering response and increasing the level of detailed feedback.

Enhancements have also been made to the Adaptive Damping System (ADS), with DBS 770 Ultimate receiving damper calibration and software tune focusing.

More than just mechanical tweaks

As well as being mechanically honed, the appearance of DBS 770 Ultimate has been amplified, too.

Drawing increased air flow through the engine radiators, the clamshell hood features a dramatic ‘horse-shoe’ engine vent and a new front splitter integrates two outboard vents.

Further detail design changes for DBS 770 Ultimate include 2×2 twill carbon fiber cantrail, windshield surround, mirror caps, and fender louvre as standard.

DBS 770 Ultimate features a new carbon fiber sill, too, which visually lowers the side profile towards the rear wheel, creating a poised stance.

That’s in addition to a new rear diffuser, which maintains aerodynamic balance from front to rear.

It’s further distinguished by 21-inch wheels available in three finishes: satin silver, satin black, or satin black with diamond turned finish.

On the inside

DBS 770 Ultimate comes with Sports Plus seats trimmed in full semi-aniline leather and Alcantara, featuring a ‘fluted’ quilt and perforation pattern.

A bespoke trim split has been introduced, with contrast colors linked to welt and stitching, along with a tailor-made strap and buckle badge featuring a laser etched DBS 770 Ultimate logo found on the center armrest.

Carbon fiber gearshift paddles come as standard, too.

Finally, DBS 770 Ultimate is fitted with a set of sill plaques showcasing the Aston Martin wings, DBS 770 Ultimate logo and limited-edition numbering signifying the vehicle as one of 300 Coupes or 199 Volantes.
