With the debut of the new V12-powered DBS sports car scheduled for the end of the year, Aston Martin reportedly wants to bid farewell to the current model that has been in production since 2007 with a special edition version.
An inside source from the British company told Car&Driver magazine that the final version of the current DBS will be called the Ultimate Edition and that production will be limited to 100 units, with about 30 of those cars to be sold in the United States.
The unnamed insider said that the Ultimate Edition would not receive any powertrain or suspension upgrades over the regular DBS, and that the changes would be similar to last year’s DBS Carbon Black Specials (pictured above and below).
To get an idea of what to expect from the Ultimate Edition, the DBS Carbon Black specials featured bespoke paint colors, exterior and interior trim accents, and alloy wheel designs.
Given the imminent launch of the next DBS, it shouldn’t be too long before Aston Martin comes out with an official announcement.
