Aston Martin has released the convertible Volante version of its final edition DBS 770 Ultimate.
The final edition DBS 770 Ultimate coupe was revealed in January this year, but Aston Martin also confirmed a drop-top Volante would follow.
Dubbed the DBS 770 Ultimate, Aston Martin says this is the most powerful production sports car in its history.
Aston Martin will only produce 199 examples of the Volante and 300 coupes before its next-generation DBS is revealed later this year. Orders have already closed for the DBS 770 Ultimate with production already commencing.
Deliveries are expected to begin in the third quarter of 2023, with a spokesperson for Aston Martin confirming the vehicle will come to Australia.
The Volante shares its twin-turbo V12 engine with the coupe, which sends 566kW of power and 900Nm of torque to the rear wheels. There’s a limited-slip differential on the rear axle to help get that power down, and an eight-speed ZF automatic is standard.
Based on modifications made to the air and ignition pathways, Aston Martin has increased the power output by 33kW compared to the regular DBS.
The vehicle is capable of completing a 0-100km/h sprint in 3.6 seconds, which is 0.2 seconds slower than its coupe sibling. Flat out it’ll do 340km/h.
With 58 colour options – including six shades of red, 11 shades of green, and nine shades of blue/purple – there’s no shortage of personalisation options.
Drivers also have the option to customise additional elements including the air intakes, bottom of the front bumper and more.
Owners can customise the roof with four different colour choices, and there are two exterior packages and three 21-inch wheel colour options.
Both the coupe and Volante include 21-inch wheels that Aston Martin has paired with Pirelli P Zero 265/35 R21 tyres at the front and 305/30 R21 tyres at the rear.
This final edition celebrates the end of the current DBS, which Aston Martin says will be replaced with an overhauled model later this year.
The new model is expected to feature a touchscreen infotainment system and changes to its suspension, engine and transmission.
It’s expected sometime between June and August, as part of a broader range overhaul that will touch the DB11, Vantage, and DBS.
The current range of DBS is sold out until the third quarter of this year. Production has reportedly already began for the next-generation DBS, with Aston Martin planning first deliveries before the end of 2023.
