Aston Martin DBS Carbon Edition

The 2011 Aston Martin DBS Carbon Edition had its world premiere at the 64th Frankurt Motor Show. The two striking Carbon Edition DBS sports cars will be available in two new colours that include Ceramic Grey and Flame Orange, while each DBS is planned to undergo Aston Martin's unique paint process that makes use of seven layers of paint and a 25 hour hand flat-and-polish finish. The 10-spoke gloss black diamond turned wheels featuring a full gloss black finish as an option or a reversed diamond turned, are complemented by the brake callipers that will be delivered as standard with yellow, orange, red or grey as an option. Furthermore, the carbon rear lamp in-fills and the smoked rear lights create a DBS specification like never before, while the carbon fiber mirror heads together with the warm black grille harmonise with the exterior finish. The high-quality and refinement of the interior are ensured by the magnesium alloy paddles that control the Touchtronic II automatic gearbox, the headlining quilted in leather providing a luxurious envelope to the cabin and the carbon fiber fascia featuring a carbon weave that has been positioned exactly to follow the form of the dashboard. The prices of the DBS Carbon Edition start at 186,582 Pound for the coupe and 196,581 Pound for the Volante and the deliveries are expected at the beginning of 2012.
