Aston Martin Project One-77: Further Photo Revealed
DBS to have automatic option

In separate announcements, the British company has issued a further teaser image of its 2009 700bhp supercar as well as offering Touchtronic on the flagship DBS.

The latest photograph from Gaydon shows the new car from a rear three-quarter angle. Despite the arty lighting, a clearly defined ‘step’ can be seen over the wide rear wheel arches, with a possibly pillarless side window treatment. The boot has a small aerodynamic lip and there’s either a retractable bootlid spoiler – or space for just a wash bag as luggage...

Just behind the front wheels, aggressive air exits handle the 7.3-litre V12’s heat and may form part of the 200mph car’s aerodynamic package. The roof features a relief echoing the classic profile of an NACA duct.

It does look rather good.

Production will be limited to a maximum of 77 individually numbered examples, with deliveries expected to commence in the fourth quarter of 2009.

Touchtronic 2 and 2+2 for the DBS

Not having a stand at the Paris show, the company has also announced that the range-topping DBS will not only be available as a conventional six-speed - as seen in the DB9 - automatic, but also in an optional 2+2 configuration. As standard, the £162,500 ($269,000) car is a ‘2+0’ manual with Touchtronic 2 adding a further £3000 ($4000).

The 1000W Bang & Olufsen BeoSound system – developed exclusively for the DBS and previously an option – is now standard fitment, while new 10-spoke 20in forged aluminium wheels can be specified at extra cost. The weight-saving (8kg per corner) alloys feature a diamond-turned surface and are available in either silver or graphite
