Aston Martin DBS Carbon Black

Aston Martin was a little busy these last few weeks with its two top-of-the-range sports cars, the DBS and V12 Vantage. Both received a special Carbon Black makeover and this is how, a totally special edition was created. This model is actually the result of the success the DBS and V12 Vantage. The new model features a bespoke Carbon Black metallic paint especially created for with a subtle metallic twist to create a deep rich patina. To be more precise, each model will undergo 50 man-hours of hand painting and then very severe quality checks. A grille with a bright finish and front parking sensors complete the exterior detailing. The carmaker offers lightweight seats made of Carbon Fiber and Kevlar saving 17 kg over the standard seat and it also comes with Piano black fascia trim, center console and center stack. The 700w Premium Audio System developed by Aston Martin is offered as standard in the V12 Vantage and the DBS boasts features as standard the Bang & Olufsen Beosound DBS audio system. Good news for the UK and European customers who order one of the Carbon Black Edition V12 Vantage. They will have the opportunity to try the renowned Performance Driving Course by Aston Martin, free of charge. This will make it a memorable day and there is more. The customers will equip themselves with the skill sets needed to really enjoy their car on the track. The good news is that the new Carbon Black Editions are already available to order from all official Aston Martin dealership networks. The price was not revealed yet, but it will be somewhere around New Year. First customers will receive the keys of their new car starting March.
