Style and visual drama are the special editions hallmarks as they perfectly emphasise the timeless GT's sporting nature. The Aston Martin DB9 Carbon Edition is led by two distinctive specifications; Carbon Black and Carbon White or alternatively customers are afforded the choice of the Aston Martin colour palette to personalise their own carbon creation.
The new Carbon Black accentuates the 183 mph DB9's 6.0-litre V12 potential through a strong dark theme underpinned by a unique combination of lightweight carbon fibre features. Meanwhile, the contemporary Carbon White special edition creates a dramatic visual effect wîth the carbon fibre and dark elements contrasting strongly against the Stratus White paint and accented caliper colour.
Striking exterior additions for both Carbon Black and Carbon White editions include carbon fibre side strakes, rear lamp infills and black meshes and window surrounds reinforcing the powerful visual themes. The carbon theme can be extended further wîth optional carbon fibre front splitter, rear diffuser and mirror cap/arm features. Standard exterior equipment also include 10-spoke diamond-turned alloy wheels available wîth either silver or satin black finishes and a choice of red, yellow, grey or black brake calipers.
Inside, a strong black styling theme wîth a choice of accent colours in line wîth the caliper shade showcases carbon fibre details and new black hardware. Bespoke sill plaques wîth the Carbon logo, communicate the cars' rarity, too.
Of course the styling changes don't alter the DB9's inherent grand touring capabilities, qualities that make it the world's most admired and desired GT.
