Aston Martin DBS 770 Ultimate Volante Revealed
A tad bit slower to accelerate but just as vicious at full stretch as the coupe.
Most car enthusiasts worldwide probably felt their lower jaw dropping around mid-January 2023. Courtesy, the Aston Martin DBS 770 Ultimate. And it wasn’t just the gorgeousness; the description had mentions like “most powerful Aston Martin Ever”, “order book already closed”, “only 499 units to be made”, and “marks the end of current DBS production”. But, the British brand kept the convertible version of DBS’ last hurrah under wraps.
Filling that void now is the Aston Martin DBS 770 Ultimate Volante. 199 of the 499 units planned will have a soft top, offering unlimited headroom and an even better stage to hear the V12 bellow. That 5.2-litre, twin-turbocharged heart churns out 770hp/900Nm, the same as in the coupe. The 8-speed automatic feeds the oomph to the rear wheels only. And although the sprint to 100kmph takes two-tenths more than the hard top (3.6s vs 3.4s), the top speed of 340kmph is identical.
Even though all the planned units are already accounted for, Aston Martin has kept the configurator active. That’s where one gets to see the level of customisation and personalisation the British offer for the DBS 770 Ultimate siblings. For instance, various paint options, ranging from front blacks & greys and purple & blues to greens, reds and silvers & whites. Then, one could choose from four finishes for the fabric roof for the Volante. Similarly, the interior theme is customisable, including the door trim, the seats, the seatbelts, the carpets and the steering wheel.
By default, the DBS 770 Ultimate Volante comes with 21-inch alloys, carbon ceramic brakes with black callipers, powered and heated sports seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, cruise control, a 360-degree camera, an 8.0-inch infotainment display, tyre pressure monitoring system, front and rear parking sensors and Blind Spot Detection system.
Aston Martin commenced production of the DBS 770 Ultimate in Q1 of 2023, with deliveries expected to start in Q3. So, if you could, would you buy the coupe or the Volante?Recommend0 recommendationsPublished in News
