The Aston Martin DBS is currently on its way out. The automaker will reveal the DBS 770 Ultimate tomorrow, but Aston continues to tease it ahead of its debut. The short video doesn’t show much, but it does catch a bit of the car’s screeching exhaust.
Aston Martin hasn’t revealed many details about this car. We suspect a 5.2-liter twin-turbocharged V12 engine is hiding under the hood. As the name suggests, it will produce 770 metric horsepower, or 759 brake horsepower (566 kilowatts).
The DBS Superleggera 007 Edition produces 715 hp (526 kW) and 664 pound-feet (900 Newton-meters) of torque, for comparison, which is enough to send the car from 0 to 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour) in 3.4 second. Aston gave the 007 a top speed of 211 mph (340 kph). The 770 Ultimate should have just as impressive numbers.
We don’t know how much Aston will change the car’s design compared to the DBS Superleggera, but the automaker says the new variant is “Re-engineered”, with “sharper dynamic focus coupled with beautiful design”. Aston calls the DBS 770 Ultimate the “last edition flagship to top them all.” Previous teaser videos showed off a familiar-looking DBS silhouette, so we weren’t expecting such a radical redesign on the already sleek exterior.
The new teaser video doesn’t add many pieces to the DBS puzzle, showing off the car’s wheels, fender and hood vents, exhaust, and trunk. No one got a peek inside the cabin, but we doubt Aston plans to make any significant changes to the interior.
Luckily, we’ll have all the details soon. Aston will reveal the revamped DBS tomorrow, possibly detailing an updated powertrain and other changes. It’s unclear when the new DBS could go on sale, but we hope Aston will offer some details tomorrow.
It would be nice if it also revealed its price, but that could be closer to its on-sale date. Current DBS Superleggera pricing starts at around $330,000. It’s no wonder the 770 Ultimate surpasses that, considering that Aston will be limiting production to just 499 units.
