Frankfurt 2011: Aston DBS Carbon Edition

Two new paint schemes and some interior detailing added to the DBS range…

  1. This is not a new Aston Martin and it is not a new DBS. It is simply orange.

    Or grey. Ahead of its world premiere, Aston has released pictures and prices of the DBS Carbon Edition, ‘carbon’ being the operative word. Aston has gone to town on the stuff, festooning the orange n’ grey V12s with carbon fibre mirror heads/lamp in-fills/rear lights/dashboard fascia, as well as tipping the magnesium alloy shift paddles in it. There’s even a carbon fibre sill plaque, in case your hunger for the stuff necessitates a permanent reminder.

  2. Pity Aston’s worker bees though. You can specify a satin lacquer finish, a first on an Aston, and both ‘Flame Orange’ and ‘Ceramic Grey’ paint jobs get a 25-hour hand polish to create a glass veneer. 25 hours! Think of their wrists!

    Both Carbon Editions get 10-spoke gloss black diamond turned wheels, a choice of coloured brake callipers, leather headlining and the new Garmin sat nav system. Deliveries kick off in the first three months of 2012, and prices start at £186,582 for the coupe and £196,581 for the convertible, around £6k over its standard, less orange brethren.

    Still not as menacing as the DBS Carbon Black, though…
