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).
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.
The custom interior presented a unique challenge: The dashboard, center console, headliner, door panels and seats were refinished with utmost precision. The choice of materials and colors was left to the customer, who, in this case, opted for an Alcantara/leather interior with carbon fiber inserts and metal accents.
Bigger high performance brakes, uprated sport suspension and 20-inch DBS wheels are the last parts of this conversion kit. The thing is, we are not sure this package (along with the cost of the car) is actually cheaper than buying a factory-made DBS!
