What’s new in the Aston Martin DBS 770 Ultimate Volante?
In terms of visual changes, the car now gets a set of aggressive air intakes at the front, a larger hood scope and a healthy dose of carbon fiber. The lightweight carbon fiber is used across the car in areas like the can train, front windshield surround, rear view mirror caps and not to mention the fender louvres. Aston Martin has paired the car with uniquely designed exclusive 21-inch wheels for the DBS 770 Ultimate. The carmaker offers these wheels in a choice of three finishes.
Further, there is a commemorative plaque that mentions the car to be one of 499 units.
Powertrain of the Aston Martin DBS 770 Ultimate Volante
The British carmaker has configured the DBS 770 Ultimate Volante with the same swansong V12, but it now generates more power. The engine develops 770 PS with 663 lb-ft. of peak torque. These numbers are the same as that of the DBX 707.
Not to mention, Aston Martin has modified the air intake along with the ignition pathway to increase the boost pressure by seven percent. This has ensured that the top speed of the DBS 770 Ultimate is in excess of 211 mph. In terms of gearbox, the car comes with an eight-speed ZF automatic that sends power to the rear wheels via a mechanical limited slip differential.
Braking duties are handled by Carbon Ceramic brake discs on both ends.
