The DBS 770 Ultimate Volante, which Aston Martin has unveiled, will sit next to its coupe counterpart and serve as a significantly improved farewell to the company’s intimidating V12 grand tourer. Both the coupe and volante versions of the supercar produce 770 horsepower, outperforming the normal DBS, making it “the most powerful production Aston Martin ever.” In recent years, Aston Martin has produced more potent road vehicles, but they have been extremely expensive and scarcely available.
Aston Martin DBS 770 Engine
The additional power of the 5.2-litre quad-cam engine is mostly due to increased turbo pressure and modifications to the air and ignition routes. The 770 is competitive in terms of sheer speed with Ferrari’s fierce final-edition 812 and the commemorative Ultimae version of the Lamborghini Aventador, clocking in at 3.2 seconds for the coupe and 3.6 seconds for the drop-top versions.
Similar to the Aston Martin Vantage V12 introduced the previous year, its increased firepower comes with a significant chassis and drivetrain revamp. To improve control without compromising rolling refinement, the adaptive dampers have been re-calibrated at all four corners, “enabling the driver to enjoy a more precise connection with the road.”
DBS 770 Design
A bold exterior overhaul that features a sizeable horseshoe-shaped bonnet vent that improves engine cooling, a freshly created splitter, and a pair of larger new air vents that increase airflow set the run-out DBS apart from its normal sister. Other significant alterations from the ordinary DBS include a number of carbon fibre body parts, a custom rear diffuser, and new 21-inch wheels inspired by the Victor and Valkyrie.
Price and Delivery
A larger batch of the 770 will be produced, with prices starting at Rs 3.15 crore for the coupe and Rs 3.45 crore for the volante. These are already sold out before late summer deliveries begin.
