Aston Martin DBS Volante Summerheat by Wheelsandmore

Wheelsandmore is no beginner when it comes to tuning great sports cars. Having no fear to accept any challenge, the staff there has worked on super projects such as the Maserati MC Stradale, the Lamborghini Aventador or the most recent one, the McLaren 12C Spider. The tuning company’s strongest point is, how the name already suggests, customizing multi-piece special lightweight wheels. They also apply engine upgrades and provide exhaust systems or brake systems to supercars. And we can find all these elements on the recently tuned 2012 Aston Martin DBS Volante Summerheat.

The 2012 Aston Martin DBS Volante Summerheat has been equipped by Wheelsandmore with a new set of 6Sporz handmade forged wheels. They are characterized by matte black faces, outer rim and spokes. The wheels are sized 9.5×21 inches at the front axle with 265/30 tires and 12×21 inch wheels at the back with 325/25/21 rubbers. Continental Sport Contact 5P is the company that produces the tires.

Besides the new wheels, the 2012 Aston Martin DBS Volante Summerheat benefits of a suspension upgrade with the helped of some custom built lowering springs. These lower the car’s body by 35 mm. The engine has also been improved in such a way that it can now add an extra 40hp to the 510hp standard figure and an extra 90Nm from the 6.0-liter V12 engine. To sum up, this means that the engine produces 550hp and 488lb-ft of torque. And here is how we get another well-done job from Wheelsandmore.
