2012 Aston Martin DBS Carbon Edition

Aston Martin will premiere two striking new Carbon Edition DBS sports cars at the Frankfurt Motor Show on 13 September 2011.

Following on from the success of the DBS Carbon Black, introduced in 2009, the 2011 DBS Carbon Edition will be available in two new colours including Flame Orange and Ceramic Grey together wîth the existing Carbon Black. Each DBS will undergo Aston Martin's unique paint process receiving seven layers of paint together wîth a 25 hour hand flat-and-polish finish resulting in a glass veneer normally the reserve of jewellery production. A first for Aston Martin is the option to specify a satin lacquer paint finish, creating a silk-like texture.

The DBS Carbon Edition features 10-spoke gloss black diamond turned wheels wîth a reversed diamond turned or full gloss black finish as an option. Complementing the wheels, black brake calipers will be delivered as standard wîth yellow, orange, red or grey as an option. Harmonising wîth the exterior finish is a warm black grille, carbon fibre mirror heads, carbon rear lamp in-fills and smoked rear lights creating a DBS specification like never before.

The cosseting and inviting interior of the coupe plays host to the familiar swathes of obsidian black or maranello orange semi-aniline leather. This type of leather is more natural lòòking and softer to touch. The interior of a DBS Carbon Edition will take in excess of 70 man hours to hand stitch and finish.
On the DBS Carbon Edition coupe, the headlining is quilted in leather providing a luxurious envelope to the cabin. Immediately distinguishing the Carbon Edition from a standard DBS is the carbon fibre facia wîth a carbon weave that has been positioned exactly to follow the form of the dashboard. Only by hand can the fibres be laid to create a perfectly aligned weave.

The magnesium alloy paddles that control the Touchtronic II automatic gearbox are tipped wîth carbon fibre bringing the Carbon Edition direct to the fingertips. A unique carbon fibre special edition sill plaque wîth laser etched metal inlay completes the specification.
