News emerge from Aston’s headquarters in Gaydon that the gorgeous DBS is living its last days and will be replaced by a new model at the end of the year. Seeing as the DBS is based on the DB9, one would imagine the DB9 is about to change as well. Aston Martin is reportedly preparing a 100 Ultimate Edition cars to give its super GT a proper send-off.
The DBS Ultimate Edition will use the same recipe as DBS Carbon Edition, which means it only gets a couple of visual tweaks and some more equipments to go with it, and no performance upgrades.
These special swan song models will benefit from a bespoke paint finish which requires 50 man-hours to apply, unique wheels, and more standard equipments than normal DBS. They will be available as both coupe and Volante (convertible) models, but only with six-speed Touchtronic transmission. No manual option offered.
There’s no word on pricing yet, but expect a healthy premium over the standard car.
