There’s no doubt that Aston Martin likes a variation on a theme, and has a real penchant for a limited edition car whenever a suitable occasion can be found. So a run-out model for the current DBS is a given.
Aston Martin are planning a new DBS for 2013. Well, new as in new body panels and a bit of a tweak to the power, not new as in new shape, new engines, new gearbox, new platform…
So with a major refresh coming for the DBS the Interwebs are convinced that Aston Martin are about to reveal the DBS Ultimate Edition as a limited run of 100 cars to send the DBS off in style.
The consensus is that the DBS Ultimate Edition will get similar tweaks to last year’s DBS Carbon Edition Specials – carbon fibre and custom colours inside and out and new alloys – or, we assume, 2009’s similarly named DBS Carbon Black.
How much will Aston Martin be asking for the DBS Ultimate Edition? £200k would seem a reasonable guess.
