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.
