Dec 18, 2009

Aston Martin’s top-of-the-range sportscars; the DBS and V12 Vantage have undergone a unique Carbon Black makeover to create desirable special editions.

Celebrating the success of the DBS and V12 Vantage, which have surpassed all sales expectations, the special editions add a typically understated flair to these acclaimed models.

They feature bespoke Carbon Black metallic paint formulated with a subtle metallic twist. Each car takes 50 man-hours to hand-paint, followed by stringent quality checks.

For the V12 Vantage, the iconic Aston Martin side strake has been fashioned from carbon fiber backed by a black mesh. It’s complimented by gloss-black 10-spoke diamond-turned wheels. A bright finished grille complete the exterior detailing.

Inside, owners will be greeted to swathes of Obsidian Black leather, highlighted with a contrast silver coarse stitch that is hand-stitched by the craftspeople at Aston Martin’s global headquarters in England.

Lightweight seats formed from Carbon Fiber and Kevlar save 37.5 lb over the standard seat. There is also Piano black dashboard and centre console trim, black anodized treadplates and unique sill plaques build on the carbon theme. The 700w Aston Martin Premium Audio System is delivered as standard in the V12 Vantage, while the DBS boasts the Bang & Olufsen Beosound DBS audio system as standard.

Customers who order a Carbon Black Edition V12 Vantage will have the opportunity to experience Aston Martin’s renowned Performance Driving Course (UK and Europe only) free of charge, which offers a memorable day helping customers to equip themselves with the skill sets to enhance the enjoyment of their Aston Martin on the track.

The Carbon Black Editions are available to order from the official Aston Martin dealership network with final pricing expected to be approximately 5% over current base prices. Deliveries will commence in March 2010.
