Aston Martin preparing the DBS Ultimate Edition to mark the end of production

Article by Christian Andrei, on April 30, 2012

Before the new DBS by Aston Martin for 2013 arrives at the end of 2012, the automaker will build the last 100 units of the outgoing model to be special DBS Ultimate Editions. There won’t be any powertrain or suspension upgrades for the Ultimate Editions. However, sources say that to have an idea of what the Ultimate would be like, we only need to examine the DBS Carbon Black Special Edition.

The car uses bespoke paint, which needs 50 hours to complete its manual application. It also gets special wheels with some options being offered as standard.

It is available in both coupe and Volante convertible body styles. It’s likely that most or all of these styles would be used on the commemorative cars. But then, the Ultimate won’t be available with a manual.

The Carbon Black Special Edition and the DBS Carbon Edition (which debuted last fall at the Frankfurt show) were offered just with a six-speed automatic.

Of the 100 Ultimates built, fewer than 30 will be available in the U.S. Sources say that the announcement about the allotment for this model will come soon.

If you like what you’re reading so far, head off to the nearest Aston Martin and order the Ultimate coupe. It’s believed that the new model will have a modest premium over the $288,000 price tag of the DBS Carbon Edition.
