The Ultimate is powered by Aston’s 5.2-litre V12 engine that, thanks to modified air and ignition pathways together with a seven percent increase in maximum turoboost pressure, results in 770PS (760bhp) and a colossal 664lb ft of torque giving the car a top speed of 211mph.

Power is fed through a ZF eight-speed automatic transmission ZF 8HP that’s been given a unique calibration to improve shift speeds.

Front end lateral stiff ness has been improved by 25 percent to provide maximum performance feel and response. This increase has been achieved with an enhanced front cross member, and a thicker rear undertray, which also increases global torsional stiff ness by three percent for perfectly balanced driving dynamics.

Enhancements have also been made to the car’s adaptive damping system with the DBS 770 Ultimate’s suspension receiving a unique software update that focuses on control and composure without compromising ride quality. Externally, the clamshell bonnet features a new ‘horse-shoe’ engine grille while the front splitter integrates two new outboard vents. Further design changes include a carbon fibre cantrail, windscreen surround, mirror caps, and a bumper louvre as standard. There’s also a new carbon fibre sill element to help visually lower the side profile while a unique rear diff user maintains aerodynamic balance between the front and rear.

The DBS 770 Ultimate is further distinguished by new 21in wheels available in three finishes; satin silver, satin black or optional satin black with a diamond-turned finish.

The interior features sports seats trimmed in full semi-aniline leather and Alcantara that features a ‘fluted’ quilt and perforation pattern as standard. The DBS 770 Ultimate logo is then laser-etched into the centre armrest. Finally, the car is fitted with a unique set of sill plaques showcasing the famed Aston Martin wings, DBS 770 Ultimate logo and limited-edition numbering signifying the vehicle being one of 300 coupes or 199 Volantes.

Aston Martin’s chief technology officer, Roberto Fedeli, said of the car, “When an iconic model generation reaches the end of production it is important to mark the occasion with something special. In the case of the DBS 770 Ultimate, we have spared nothing in ensuring the final version of our current series production flagship is the best-ever in every respect.

Not only is it the fastest and most powerful DBS in our history, thanks to a comprehensive suite of improvements to the transmission, steering, suspension, and underbody structure; it is also the best to drive.”

Production of the 2024 Aston Martin DBS 770 Ultimate is due to commence in the first quarter of 2023, with first deliveries scheduled to begin later in the year.
