DBS 770 Ultimate is ‘most powerful production Aston Martin ever’

There’s a new flagship Super GT in the Aston Martin line-up - the DBS 770 Ultimate.

The current generation of the DBS has been around since 2018 - coining the phrase ‘brute in a suit’ - and is thus coming to the end of its life.

But it’s not going out without one last hurrah.

And this is at - a 770 PS weapon that is, as the British firm puts it, ‘the most powerful production Aston Martin ever’.

The regular DBS - available as a Coupe or drop-top Volante - is hardly slow, coming with power of 725 PS.

But the new DBS 770 Ultimate takes things up a notch. The DBS’s trademark 5.2 litre V12 engine has been honed to produce 770 PS, along with 900Nm of torque.

Curiously, the top speed and 0-62 mph figures for the regular DBS and the 770 Ultimate models are identical - 0-62 mph reached in 3.4 seconds and a top speed of 211 mph.

But the 770 Ultimate also benefits from style tweaks, improved engine cooling, better aerodynamic balance, sharper steering and improved suspension, making it as desirable as it is capable.

The bad news? Only 499 examples will be built - 300 Coupes and 199 Volantes - and they’ve all already been sold ahead of release.

An Aston Martin spokesperson enthuses: “Precise tuning of power and torque curves gives the driver a sense of boundless performance, with an intoxicating blend of exceptional response, outstanding in-gear acceleration and the authentic V12 soundtrack.”

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

Shift speeds have been improved compared with the standard DBS, ‘contributing to a truly connected driving experience’, while a solid mounted steering column offers better driver feedback.

The DBS 770 Ultimate also looks the part.

There’s a ‘horse-shoe’ engine vent on the bonnet and a new front splitter as well as a new rear diffuser at the back. Large 21 inch alloys catch the eye, too.

The cabin has been wholly uprated, too.

Our Aston Martin spokesperson adds: “Signifying its halo positioning, DBS 770 Ultimate comes with Sports Plus Seats trimmed in full semi-aniline leather and Alcantara, featuring a ‘fluted’ quilt and perforation pattern as standard.

“Aston Martin’s performance seat can also be selected as an option. A bespoke trim split has been introduced, with contrast colours 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 centre armrest. Carbon Fibre Gearshift paddles are also fitted as standard.”

Meanwhile Marek Reichman, Aston Martin Chief Creative Officer, says that the DBS 770 Ultimate represents ‘something so raw, and yet so beautiful’ that it’s ‘almost intimidating to look at’.

As for the price, estimates suggest it will set owners back a cool £314,000.

So, what comes next for Aston Martin?

The manufacturer is aiming to launch its first ever electric vehicle by 2025, while a plug-in hybrid could appear as early as next year.
