The British based automaker Aston Martin has recently announced that the DBS will leave the production line.
According to the car manufacturer, Aston Martin will stop the production of the DBS, but in a true British spirit, a special edition of the supercar will celebrate the “event”. Before pulling the plug on the DBS, Aston Martin will release a special edition of the supercar, which will be named the Aston Martin DBS Ultimate Edition, and 100 units of the model will be developed. Rumors say that the DBS Ultimate Edition won’t get any engine tweaks and the vehicle’s upgrades will be similar to the DBS Carbon Black Special Edition.
As a small reminder, the Aston Martin DBS is a high performance version of the DB9 model, and this has been in production ever since 2007. The DBS name has also been used on a model made between 1967 and 1972, and the modern version is currently being assembled in Gaydon, England. The Aston Martin DBS is replacing the Vanquish S and it’s coming as a two-door coupe, made on the Aston Martin VH platform. The DBS is powered by a 5.9 liter V12 engine which is generating 510 HP, mated to a six-speed manual transmission as standard or a six-speed automatic available as an option.
