Aston Martin DBS by Edo Competition

Edo Competition specialists have developed a tuning program for the Aston Martin DBS, a model that already produces 510 horsepower and it is capable of a top speed of more than 300 km/h. After the modification, the DBS is capable of developing 517 horsepower and 570 Nm of torque, but somehow it is not enough. The engine control unit was modified via software recalibration. Because of a new high-performance exhaust system, special catalytic converters and high flow air filters, power output was increased to an impressive 550 PS and 600 Nm of torque. This output enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.1 seconds and to reach a top speed of 320 km/h. All modifications performed by Edo Competition are recalibrated and verified on a dynamometer. The exhaust system incorporates butterfly valves allowing it to produce a fantastically rich and sonorous sound. It comes with a programmable control system that monitors backpressure inside the exhaust and opens the 70 mm butterfly valves when a pre-determined level of backpressure is exceeded. The exhaust system is made from stainless steel and the chromed exhaust tips accentuate the elegant design. The driver can adjust the sound of the DBS at any time using a remote control. The suspension system for the DBS ensures exceptional ride comfort and superior driving dynamics and the setup can be matched to the driving style of the driver. The new suspension provides more cornering grip while improving high speed stability and comfort. The interior is available with carbon fiber shifter and shifter console. To provide superior levels of grip, the tuner offers exclusive wheel/tire combinations. Featuring a new wheel design, the DBS is equipped with a set of 21-inch racing wheels. Performance and safety are a priority for the tuner and this is why they have developed a new high-performance brake system.
