Engineers at tuning firm Edo Competition spent the last six months in their Ahlen, Germany, workshop developing a package that would turn a 2005 Aston Martin DB9 into an Aston Martin DBS. Amongst the upgrades is a boost in engine output from 470 to 550 horsepower (350 to 410 kW).
The car makes use of a high-performance exhaust with 70 mm butterfly valves, stainless steel pipes, and chrome exhaust tips. Riding on 20-inch wheels, the modified car is now able to hit 199 mph (320 km/h), 16 mph (25 km/h) faster than its previous top speed.
Exterior modifications include a new carbon fiber front fascia, as well as a carbon rear diffuser. The car uses a new bonnet, with extra venting, and has a wider, more squared stance. It also appears as if the car is riding lower to the ground. Behind the new wheels are a newly-designed set of brakes, with six-piston front, four-piston rear calipers and 405-millimeter front, 380-millimeter rear rotors.
Inside, the car features a mix of Alcantara and leather in a contrasting off-white and charcoal grey color scheme. Carbon fiber and brushed metal makes up the interior trim. An undisclosed "high-end audio system' was also used.
Edo Competition designed the DBS conversion for a customer in Russia. The tuning firm has not yet said if they will release the package to the general public.
