The British manufacturer Aston Martin decided to reveal two new Carbon Edition DBS sports cars ahead of the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show.
The car maker wants to replicate with this special edition the success achieved with the DBS Carbon Black launched in 2009, and some of the unique features being offered this time including two new body colours (Flame Orange and Ceramic Grey) and 10-spoke design gloss black diamond turned wheels.
“Each DBS will undergo Aston Martin’s unique paint process receiving seven layers of paint together with a 25 hour hand flat-and-polish finish resulting in a glass veneer normally the reserve of jewelery production. A first for Aston Martin is the option to specify a satin lacquer paint finish, creating a silk-like texture,” the manufacturer states.
Furthermore, the British car maker will offer the option to specify a satin lacquer paint finish, creating a silk-like texture and some other standard features including black brake callipers with yellow, orange, red or grey as an option, a black colored front grille and smoked headlamps.
The Aston Martin DBS Carbon Edition is offered with a carbon fiber front fascia, while both models feature a carbon weave following the form of the dashboard, leather quilted headliner and carbon covered magnesium alloy paddles for the Toutchtronic II automatic gearbox.
DBS Carbon Edition prices start at £186,582 (€257,912/$287,576) for the coupe and £196,581 (€272,913/$302,576) for the Volante with customer deliveries expected from quarter one 2012.
