13 February 2023 – Silverstone, UK:  Aston Martin’s 110 years of iconic on-track intensity will be celebrated throughout the 2023 FIA Formula One World Championship™ season, with a special anniversary logo revealed today to mark the ultra-luxury manufacturer’s milestone.

Unveiled for the very first time on the nose of the new AMR23 challenger to be raced this season by established driver Lance Stroll and two-time F1® World Champion Fernando Alonso, the ‘110 Iconic Years’ crest features Aston Martin’s renowned wings marque, which was redesigned in 2022 as part of a bold new creative identity to match the brand’s future direction.

The 110th anniversary will be celebrated throughout 2023, with Aston Martin’s home Grand Prix at Silverstone seeing a special celebration of the British manufacturer’s past, present and future.

2023 promises to be a monumental year for Aston Martin, with the brand embracing its new era of high-performance and ultra-luxury by unleashing the first of its next generation of sports cars.

The year will also see the first phase of construction completed on the Aston Martin Aramco Cognizant Formula One™ Team’s new state of the art 400,000 square feet (37,000m2) F1® campus at Silverstone, which hosted today’s team launch and will drive further technological collaboration between race and road in the future with the creation of a cutting-edge wind tunnel and simulator facility, set for completion at the end of 2024, that holds the potential to be utilised by Aston Martin Lagonda when developing its high performance products.

The brand’s presence at the pinnacle of motorsport is a key pillar of Aston Martin’s brand and performance product strategy, with new market research revealing that Formula 1® is connecting Aston Martin with an engaged audience and raising consideration in key markets.

With the sport enjoying record popularity worldwide, research indicates more than 89% of Aston Martin customers globally are now interested in Formula 1® , whilst in Aston Martin’s largest commercial market of the United States, which will host three Grand Prix™ for the first time this season, 96% of customers feel Aston Martin’s presence in F1® made them more likely to consider the brand. More than 92% of customers also highlighted that the brand’s high-profile on-track presence is amplifying Aston Martin’s high-performance and technological credentials, as well as making the feeling of driving an Aston Martin even more exciting.

Lawrence Stroll, Executive Chairman of Aston Martin, said: “110 years on from Aston Martin’s foundations on track, 2023 promises to be one of the most exciting years in our rich history, both on the track for the Aston Martin Aramco Cognizant Formula One™ Team and on the road with Aston Martin’s ever-expanding line-up of stunning high performance models.

“At a time when the sport is enjoying tremendous popularity worldwide, the return of Aston Martin to Formula 1® has been transformative for the brand and our product image, with market research highlighting its impact not just on our awareness, but also our consideration amongst a new generation of customers. F1® is reinjecting performance DNA to Aston Martin, a factor of our strategy that will further increase with the team’s new cutting-edge campus at Silverstone and our desire to compete at the highest level of the sport.”

The 2023 season will continue to see the highly desirable Vantage F1® Edition roar off Gaydon’s sports car production facility. The 535PS performance car, which in 2021 became the first production model to be adorned with the F1® logo, has been a huge success since its introduction as an Official FIA Safety Car of Formula 1®, a role it will fulfill on the world’s greatest circuits again this season alongside the DBX medical car.

Data shows that 72% of Vantage F1® Edition owners are new to the Aston Martin brand, further demonstrating the positive impact that Aston Martin’s global presence in the sport is having on its brand desirability and appeal to new customers.

The Aston Martin Aramco Cognizant Formula One™ Team begins the 2023 FIA Formula One World Championship™ season at the Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix on 5 March 2023.




24 January, 2023, Daytona International Speedway, USA: Aston Martin’s multiple championship-winning Vantage begins the defence of its IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship GTD class title this weekend, as three teams (including the 2022 IMSA GTD class champions Heart of Racing) field four Vantage GT3s in North America’s most famous endurance race – the season-opening Rolex 24 Hours at Daytona (FL).

Just as they proved in 2022 when Vantage finished an outstanding second in the Rolex 24 GTD class thanks to Magnus Racing (which returns for a second season as a partner team with the British ultra-luxury sportscar brand), Aston Martin’s partner teams Heart of Racing [HOR], Magnus Racing and Team TGM with TF Sport present a significant podium threat to both GT categories in this year’s US endurance classic.

Moreover, as Aston Martin celebrates its 110th anniversary year, it will kick-off its endurance racing calendar with a record 12 Vantages competing over the Rolex 24 weekend, including no less than eight Vantage GT4s contesting the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge support race on Friday. This four-hour season-opener also marks a title defence for Vantage GT4, which won the championship with Volt Racing in 2022.

Seattle-based partner team and reigning IMSA GTD class champion HOR returns for its fourth season with Vantage in 2023, once again running two cars. One of the team’s four-litre V8 turbo-charged machines will spearhead Aston Martin’s hopes in the GTD Pro class for homologated GT3-specification cars. AMR works driver and 2022 class race-winners Ross Gunn (GBR) and Alex Riberas (ESP) will lead the team’s GTD Pro attack this season, and at Daytona they will be joined by Aston Martin regular David Pittard (GBR).

HOR’s #27 GTD class title-defending machine will once again be driven by IMSA GTD champion Roman De Angelis (CDN), who is joined this season by the reigning FIA World Endurance GT champion and 24 Hours of Le Mans LM GTE Am class winner Marco Sørensen (DEN). Completing that car’s driver line-up is another (three-times) Le Mans class-winner Darren Turner (GBR) and HOR team principal Ian James (GBR).

Once again in 2023, the GTD class will be buoyed by Aston Martin partner Magnus Racing which enters its Vantage GT3 for all of IMSA’s endurance races (Rolex 24, Sebring 12 Hours, 6 Hours of Watkins Glen and Petit Le Mans at Road Atlanta). The two-time Rolex 24 class-winning team recorded a brilliant second-place finish on its Vantage debut at Daytona in 2022, and has a driver line-up and crew to go one step higher this time. Team principal John Potter (USA) is joined in the car by Magnus regulars Andy Lally (USA) and Spencer Pumpelly (USA) plus AMR works star and 2016 FIA WEC GT world champion Nicki Thiim (DEN).

Finally, the fourth Vantage to feature in this year’s Rolex 24 will be manned and run by new Aston Martin partner Team TGM and supported at Daytona by the multiple championship-winning squad TF Sport in the GTD Pro class. This means there will two be Aston Martins in each of the Rolex 24 GT classes this year. TGM team-owner Ted Giovanis (USA) will be joined in the #64 by Hugh and Matt Plumb (USA), and Owen Trinkler (USA).

Aston Martin Vantage GT4s will also feature heavily in the four-hour IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge opener at Daytona on Friday at 1345 ET (-5 Hours GMT). The British luxury sportscar brand goes into the IMPC kick-starter with six teams entered. Long-time AMR partner Automatic Racing returns for another season with the #9 driven by Tom Long (USA), Jom Jonsin (USA) and Brett Sandberg (USA), which adds to the team’s regular #09 for Rob Ecklin (USA) and Ramin Abdolvahabi (USA). A new team to Aston Martin, van der Steur Racing will run all-American line-up Rory van der Steur, Austin McCusker and Wyatt Brichacek, while TR3 Racing will enter Jon Branam (USA) and Paul Kiebler (USA). Moisey Uretsky (USA) returns to the series with his Accelerating Performance team and will be joined this weekend by Justin Piscitell (USA) and Michael Cooper (USA). Team TGM also joins the Aston Martin attack with two cars, #64 for Ted Giovanis (USA) and Owen Trinkler (USA), and #46 for Hugh and Matt Plumb (USA).  Finally, Archangel Motorsports returns to the AMR fold to run a Vantage GT4 under the Todd Coleman Racing banner. Coleman (USA) will be joined by Conrad Grunewald (USA) in the vivid green #88 Vantage GT4.

Huw Tasker, AMR Head of Partner Racing, said: “The fact that there are no less than 12 Vantages racing across the Rolex 24 weekend is a strong reflection of the continuing growth and success of the American GT racing programme. Vantage was a champion in GT3 and GT4 last season and we intend to provide our partners with a car that is every bit as competitive in 2023. If you look at the strength of our works driver support, and the significant engineering support and knowhow we provide to all our teams in America, it’s clear how much we value the region as an extremely important market that produces some of the most exciting racing on the planet. Let’s hope this weekend’s Rolex 24 lives up to that standard.”

The 61st Rolex 24 at Daytona will begin at 1340 ET (-5 Hours GMT), on Saturday, 27 January 2023.




18 January 2023, Gaydon, UK:  Long associated with cars of exquisite style and intoxicating performance, the DBS nameplate has been attached to some of Aston Martin’s finest flagships. Since 2018 the DBS has stood at the pinnacle of Aston Martin’s series production range; a Twin-Turbo V12 powerhouse blessed with ferocious performance and unmatched style. With production of this current generation DBS nearing its end, Aston Martin is proud to introduce a DBS to surpass all others; the DBS 770 Ultimate.

As its name suggests, the DBS 770 Ultimate is an emphatic last word. The most powerful production Aston Martin ever, and the fastest and most powerful DBS to date, extensive design and engineering enhancements ensure the DBS 770 Ultimate is an unforgettable and highly-collectible celebration of Aston Martin’s flagship Super GT. Available in both Coupe and Volante form, DBS770 Ultimate will be built in strictly limited numbers – 300 Coupes and 199 Volantes – with all examples sold ahead of release.

DBS 770 Ultimate features a ferocious iteration of Aston Martin’s quad-cam 60-deg 5.2-litre V12 engine. Now developing 770PS at 6500rpm and a colossal 900Nm of torque from just 1800rpm to 5000rpm, propelling DBS 770 Ultimate to a top speed of 211mph, this magnificent engine benefits from modified air and ignition pathways together with a 7% increase in maximum turbo boost pressure. Precise tuning of power and torque curves gives the driver a sense of boundless performance, with an intoxicating blend of exceptional response, outstanding in-gear acceleration and the authentic V12 soundtrack.

Power is fed through a ZF 8-speed automatic transmission and mechanical Limited-Slip Differential (LSD) mounted at the rear of the car. In addition, DBS 770 Ultimate receives a unique transmission calibration to enhance shift speeds and driver interaction, contributing to a truly connected driving experience. Such is the inherent capability of Aston Martin’s Carbon Ceramic Braking (CCB) system that the DBS 770 Ultimate uses the same 410mm x 38mm front discs and 360mm x 32mm rear as fitted to the DBS.

To further improve the direct nature of the steering response and increase the level of detailed feedback, DBS 770 Ultimate introduces a new solid mounted steering column, allowing the driver to enjoy a more precise connection with the road ahead, feeling what the front tyres are doing with utmost confidence and accurately gauge available grip.

Integral to achieving the engaging character and heightened steering feel of the DBS 770 Ultimate, front end lateral stiffness has been improved by 25% to provide maximum performance feel and response. This increase has been achieved with an enhanced front cross member, and thicker rear undertray, which also increases global torsional stiffness by 3% for perfectly balanced driving dynamics.

Enhancements have also been made to the Adaptive Damping System (ADS), DBS 770 Ultimate receiving unique damper calibration and software tune focusing on control and composure without compromise to ride quality. By enhancing driver connection and preserving the DBS’ unmistakable continent crossing character, the DBS 770 Ultimate elevates Aston Martin’s exemplary Super GT to even greater heights.

Just as the DBS 770 Ultimate has been mechanically honed, its appearance has too been amplified to present an assertive design and uncompromisingly unique aesthetic befitting of a final edition model created to celebrate the end of an era.

Being an Aston Martin, this enhanced form also had to possess an authentic level of function. Both to provide increased air flow to the radiators, enhancing thermal management and give greater visual road presence. Drawing increased air flow through the engine radiators, the clamshell bonnet features a dramatic ‘horse-shoe’ engine vent and a new front splitter integrates two new outboard vents. Together these serve to enhance cooling and echo the design signatures of previous DBS and V12 engine models.

Further detail design changes for DBS 770 Ultimate include 2×2 Twill Carbon Fibre Cantrail, Windscreen Surround, Mirror Caps, and Fender Louvre as standard. A new carbon fibre sill element visually lowers the side profile towards the rear wheel, creating a poised stance that accentuates the DBS’s muscular physique. A unique design of rear diffuser maintains aerodynamic balance from front to rear and ensures the DBS 770 Ultimate is as unmistakable from the rear as it is from the front.

DBS 770 Ultimate is further distinguished by a new and unique 21” wheel style available in three finishes. Taking inspiration from the formidable Aston Martin Valkyrie and Victor, this new 21” multi-spoke design is available in full Satin Silver finish for a bright jewellery appearance, full Satin Black finish for a contemporary and sporting appearance or optional Satin Black with Diamond Turned finish to give a darker, yet sophisticated appearance of the car. Pirelli P Zero high performance tyres – 265/35 R21 front and 305/30 R21 at the rear – are standard fitment on all rims.

Inside, the DBS 770 Ultimate delights with a dazzling array of fresh design treatments that set it apart, while retaining the instantly recognisable cabin environment of the current DBS. Signifying its halo positioning, DBS 770 Ultimate comes with Sports Plus Seats trimmed in full semi-aniline leather and Alcantara, featuring a ‘fluted’ quilt and perforation pattern as standard. Aston Martin’s performance seat can also be selected as an option. A bespoke trim split has been introduced, with contrast colours linked to welt and stitching, along with a tailor-made strap and buckle badge featuring a laser etched DBS 770 Ultimate logo found on the centre arm rest. Carbon Fibre Gearshift paddles are also fitted as standard.

Finally, DBS 770 Ultimate is fitted with a unique set of sill plaques showcasing the Aston Martin Wings, DBS 770 Ultimate logo and Limited-Edition numbering signifying the vehicle as one of 300 Coupes or 199 Volantes.

Like all Aston Martins, the scope for true one-of-a-kind personal specification is virtually limitless. A diverse range of Q by Aston Martin bespoke options are available on DBS 770 Ultimate, including Q liveries with assorted graphics options, painted wheels to match body or graphics colours, tinted carbon fibre and woven leather seat inserts, trim inlays and a carbon fibre steering wheel.

Aston Martin Chief Technology Officer, Roberto Fedeli, said of the DSB 770 Ultimate: “When an iconic model generation reaches the end of production it is important to mark the occasion with something special. In the case of the DBS 770 Ultimate, we have spared nothing in ensuring the final version of our current series production flagship is the best-ever in every respect. Not only is it the fastest and most powerful DBS in our history, thanks to a comprehensive suite of improvements to the transmission, steering, suspension, and underbody structure; it is also the best to drive.”

Marek Reichman, Aston Martin Chief Creative Officer, adds: “DBS has always sat at the pinnacle of the Aston Martin production model line-up. And now we’re infusing DBS 770 Ultimate with even more… more power, more performance purity and all with more sophistication, more taste and in the most considered manner.  Something so raw, and yet so beautiful it’s almost intimidating to look at. It’s through this design approach that we came up with the shapes – starting with the amped-up front end – and from there everything else flows in design balance with the performance upgrades.”

Production of the DBS 770 Ultimate is due to commence in Q1 of 2023, with first deliveries scheduled to begin during Q3 2023.
