Edo Competition transforms the Aston Martin DB9 into DBS

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 29, 2010

For six months, Edo Competition engineers worked to develop a package that could transform a 2005 Aston Martin DB9 into an Aston Martin DBS. At their Ahlen, Germany workshop, these engineers came up with upgrades in engine output from 470 to 550hp (350 to 410 kW).

They fitted the vehicle with a high-performance exhaust with 70 mm butterfly valves, stainless steel pipes, and chrome exhaust tips.

The modified car, which rides on 20-inch wheels, has a top speed of 199 mph (320 km/h) making it 16 mph (25 km/h) faster. Its exterior enhancements consist of a new carbon fiber front fascia and a carbon rear diffuser.

Edo gave this car a new bonnet, with extra venting, and it now has a wider, more squared stance. This gives the appearance of the car riding lower to the ground. The car has newly-designed set of brakes, with six-piston front, four-piston rear calipers and 405-millimeter front, 380-millimeter rear rotors.

Inside the car, we see a combination of Alcantara and leather that has a contrasting off-white and charcoal grey color scheme.

The interior trim is composed of carbon fiber and brushed metal. The car also got a "high-end audio system" but the company has yet to reveal its brand. Edo didn't say yet when this package will be available to the public. This DBS conversion was designed for a customer who is based in Russia.
