- The new Aston Martin DBS Ultimate debuts this week — on the company's Web site and Facebook page.
- The limited-edition DBS Ultimate is offered as a coupe and a Volante convertible.
- The DBS Ultimate can be ordered with a manual or automatic transmission.
The Ultimate is described as "a new and unique limited edition" of the DBS. Offered as a coupe and a Volante convertible, the DBS Ultimate comes in a choice of three exclusive exterior colors — Carbon Black II, Quantum Silver and Silver Fox.
Aston plans to make only 100 copies, for delivery in late 2012.
Among the Ultimate's distinctive exterior features: Carbon-fiber mirrors, dark grille, smoked taillamps, Zircotec-coated exhaust pipes and brake calipers painted red, yellow or black.
Interior highlights include diamond quilt stitching on the leather seats and Alcantara headliner, embroidered headrests and leather-trimmed gearshift paddles finished in Spicy Red.
The DBS Ultimate's 6.0-liter V12 can be equipped with either six-speed manual or automatic transmission.
No word yet on pricing or availability.
Inside Line says: Look for stickers just north of $300,000.
