Aston Martin will be releasing the successor to the DBS series during 2013, but not before the current generation is ended with an Ultimate edition. Here are the first pictures and details.
The British brand has taken an unusual step by releasing details on their official site before officially announcing the model to the press. The reasons behind this are unknown but the early look isn't unwelcome either.
The DBS Ultimate edition is available in either Coupe or Volante body styles with a choice of Carbon Black or Quantanium Silver exterior liveries. Each example will also feature smoked rear lights, Black Diamond wheels, calipers painted in red, yellow or black as well as special DBS Ultimate badges.
The interior meanwhile is coated in diamond quilted leather and features a spicy red leather gear paddle inserts and a carbon fiber bumper facia as well as additional DBS Ultimate badges.
The DBS Ultimate is only available in limited numbers, but Aston Martin are yet to confirm how many. Reports have stated it could be 100 with 30 reserved for the US market.
