Aston Martin Special Editions

Aston Martin is launching special Carbon Black editions of its DBS and V12 Vantage performance cars.

The cars will feature bespoke metallic paint in, you've guessed it, Carbon Black and each will undergo 50 hours of hand-painting at Aston Martin's Gaydon plant in Warwickshire.

Both cars feature gloss black 10-spoke alloy wheels, and the V12 Vantage's side strake is made from carbon fibre. Front parking sensors are fitted as standard to help protect the distinctive grille.

Inside the cars, the black colour theme continues, with Obsidian Black leather seats and Piano black trim on the dash and centre console.

Both editions are available to order now. Prices will be confirmed in the new year, but are expected to be around 5% more than the standard cars, and deliveries start in March.
