759-HP 2023 Aston Martin DBS 770 Ultimate Is Swan Song Limited Run

Posted on
  • Aston Martin is stopping the current generation DBS with a bang, revealing the DBS 770 Ultimate in a limited edition of 499.
  • Aston calls this the most powerful production car ever, thanks to its 759 hp 5.2 liter V-12 engine.
  • The special car, which has already sold out, is part of the company’s 110 year anniversary celebrations since its founding on January 15, 1913.

If this is your first time hearing about the Aston Martin DBS 770 Ultimate, you’re too late. To celebrate the end of the current generation of DBS, Gaydon has prepared quite a few barnstormers, only 499 of which will be built, and they are all ordered. You delay, you lose.

It is also a magnificent swan song; in fact, says Aston Martin, the DBS 770 Ultimate is the most powerful production car the automaker has ever produced. Under that long hood sits a 5.2-liter V-12 engine producing 759 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque, which is sent to the rear wheels via a ZF-made eight-speed automatic transmission and standard mechanical limited-slip differential. The OEM didn’t mention a 60 mph sprint time, but it said a top speed of 211 mph would be appropriate.

Aston Martin didn’t just crank up the boost pressure and call it a day. Despite using the same carbon-ceramic brakes as the standard DBS, all the updates under the skin will also improve handling prowess. The larger front crossmember and rear undertray increase overall torsional rigidity by 3 percent, while front end lateral stiffness increases by 25 percent. The new, solidly mounted steering column should provide drivers with added feel, and the adaptive dampers also bring unique tuning.

If FOMO hasn’t set in yet, it will as soon as you see the DBS 770 Ultimate rolling. This is the sharpest DBS variant on the block. Adjustments to the bumper deliver an angrier look alongside added airflow, and the focus on aerodynamics continues through the large horseshoe-shaped hatch in the clamshell bonnet. There’s also a set of striking new 21-inch wheels, available in a choice of three colors and wrapped in Pirelli P Zero performance summer tires.

The DBS interior is radical enough already, but Aston Martin has stepped things up for this last edition. Standard sports seats include semi-aniline leather and unique upholstered Alcantara. The center armrest gets a cute little leather strap with a laser engraved badge bearing the DBS 770 Ultimate logo. The model designation can also be found on the doorway plaque. Of course, any owner can go beyond what’s seen here, thanks to Aston Martin’s bespoke Q service, which can add all manner of smart graphics and paint colors to builds.

The 2023 Aston Martin DBS 770 Ultimate will be limited to 499 units, divided between 300 coupes and 199 convertibles, with production starting in the first quarter of this year and deliveries taking place in the third quarter. Unless you’re waiting to appear in Bring a Trailer, you’re out of luck, as the order book is already closed.
