Special-edition Aston Martin DBS Ultimate will be limited to just 100 units and is priced at £186,000

There’s a new flagship from Gaydon: the Aston Martin DBS Ultimate. These images show the DBS Ultimate, which has been revealed on the firm's website.

Offered in both Coupe and Volante bodystyles and in a choice of three colours – Quantum Silver, Silver Fox or Carbon Black II - this special-edition model takes the 510bhp 6.0-litre V12 DBS and adds diamond-turned 20-inch alloys and black detailing.

There’s smoked taillights with carbon fibre inserts, gloss black surrounds and carbon fibre wing caps and fill-ins. There’s also black brake calipers, which can also be optioned in contrasting red or yellow.

Inside, there's diamond-quilted leather seats, Alacantara rooflining with carbon fibre fascia and red inserts on the gear paddles, if you choose the automatic transmission. There’s DBS Ultimate badging in and out, too.

Performance remains as per the standard car, with a claimed 0-62mph time of 4.3 seconds and a top speed of 190mph.

Production of the new Aston Martin DBS Ultimate will begin in June and will be limited to just 100 units. It has a £10,000 premium over the DBS, which means a starting price of £186,582 - this puts it on a par with the DBS Carbon Edition.

Done that. How long can you continue with the present design which started out more than a decade ago. Time to come up with a fresh new design, especially the front.

but it's still so achingly pretty!

Its one of the only cars you can genuinely say has no bad angles. I'm not sure if the new wheels and vents add anything but its still one of the best looking cars of this generation.

Voyager, don't you read news stories?

This is clearly a limited edition to stir up demand for the current car since the replacement's on its way next year.
