edo transforms the Aston Martin DB9 into a full-blooded DBS
Edo competition has finally released a new high-end tuning project dubbed edo Aston Martin DBS. Created for a Russian customer, the refined British GT car – DBS – represents a full-blooded transformation from a five years old Aston Martin DB9, which edo fitted with a newly-styled outer and inner dress as well as enhanced performance figures and custom top-end sound system.
The Aston Martin DB9 was in the edo's workshop for whole six months, but we can say that the end result is just astonishing. Instead of the DB9's factory output - 470 horses (331 kW) - its 5.9-litre V12 powerplant now boasts the ultra-strong 550 horsepower (410 kW), while its V-max also rises to 320 instead of the stock 295 km/h.
On the styling and optics part, the edo-retrofitted DBS sports a huge 20-inch five double-spoke design wheels set combined with flow-optimized, carbon-made front spoiler and rear diffuser. Newly-designed side skirts with more sculpted design further strengthen the ride's unique and more muscular vision.
Pointed as a major challenge from the guys at edo, the highly-refined interior ambience of the sports coupe now renders new instrument panel, center console, headliner, side panels and seats. The materials fitted in the new cabin features high-quality Alcantara leather, carbon implants and metal elements.
The superb sound system that we mentioned earlier is found in trunk of the Aston DBS. As it is designed for absolute pure sound experience, it benefits from newly-built boxes and top-end spakers. But not only the crystal sounds of the new stereo can please the ears of the driver, a special sport exhaust unit with butterfly valves mounted by edo underlines ultimately the new ride's almost limitless capabilities.
