The British supersports brand says the DBS Ultimate will be offered in both coupe and Volante convertible form, and you can have any colour you like, so long as it's silver or carbon black.

Inside, the Ultimate offers an all-black look, with red contrast stitching and paddle shifters.

Among the DBS Ultimate's unique features are exposed carbon-fibre detailing to the side mirrors, headlight surrounds, tail-light centres and dash, along with Alcantara headliner and a premium quilted leather on the seats.

The black and polished silver alloy wheels are contrasted against a choice of either yellow or red brake calipers.

There is also smoked grey tail-lights at the rear, along with high temperature Zircotec-coated exhaust tips.

Mechanically, the DBS Ultimate remains unchanged, its 5.9 litre V12 producing 380kW and 570Nm of torque. Aston promises a 0-100km/h time of 4.3 seconds.

Only 100 examples of the DBS Ultimate Limited Edition will be offered.

    I love Aston Martin they have a great image and branding, but its hard to justify "The Ultimate DBS" when there is no increase in power.
    In such a competitive market there is no Value Adding additions to the car.
    Apart from the One-77, There products in general need a 20% power increase across the board to bring them in line with there competitors.
