Aston Martin has revealed the DBS770 Ultimate.

Adopting the naming style of the DBX707, the DBS770 Ultimate is said to be the farewell edition for the current generation DBS, the most powerful production Aston Martin yet, as well as the fastest and most powerful DBS to date - a fitting finale for the Aston Martin flagship.

You'll be able to spot this DBS770 from any other DBS, thanks to its 'horse-shoe' engine vent on the bonnet, as well as the redesigned front splitter. While at the rear, a new diffuser sits, ensuring the car's aerodynamic balance is retained.

As you might have guessed, the DBS770 Ultimate puts out a total of 759bhp (that is, 770hp), as well as a peak torque of 900Nm.

All this power is sent through a ZF eight-speed gearbox as well as a limited-slip differential at the rear, allowing the coupe to reach 100km/h from a standstill in just 3.2 seconds.

But for those seeking a little more, Aston Martin will also be offering the DBS770 Ultimate in Volante form. A total of 300 coupes and 199 Volantes will be produced, and all these, Aston Martin states, have already been sold ahead of release.

All this power comes courtesy of the same 5.2-litre V12 engine that sits within the regular DBS, although in the DBS 770 Ultimate, Aston Martin's engineers have modified the air and ignition pathways, while the maximum turbo boost pressure has also been increased by 7% to reach this new output. A unique transmission calibration to enhance shift speeds has also bee adopted by the gearbox.

Further enhancing driver engagement still in the Aston Martin DBS770 is a new solid mounted steering column, while the car's front end lateral stiffness has also been improved by 25%. This couples with an enhanced front cross member and thicker rear undertray, which is said to bring global torsional stiffness up by 3%.

A bespoke trim colourway split is being offered for the cabin of the DBS770, while carbon fibre gearshift pedals will come as standard
These upgrades also pair with a unique damper calibration and software tune for the car's Adaptive Damping System, here tuned to give the car high levels of control and composure without compromising ride quality.

Inside, the Aston Martin DBS770 will feature a host of treatments fit for a halo model. These include Sports Plus Seats, trimmed in full semi-aniline leather and Alcantara, and featuring a 'fluted' quilt and perforation pattern as standard.

The car will also get a bespoke trim split, with contrast colours linked to welt and stitching, along with a tailor-made strap and buckle badge featuring a laser etched DBS770 Ultimate logo found on the centre arm rest. Carbon Fibre Gearshift paddles are also fitted as standard.

But of course, a range of diverse range of Q by Aston Martin bespoke options are available on DBS770 Ultimate, including Q liveries with assorted graphics options, painted wheels to match body or graphics colours.

Production of the DBS770 Ultimate is due to commence in the first quarter of 2023, while first deliveries are scheduled to begin during the third quarter of 2023.
