Following on from the success of the DBS Carbon Black, introduced in 2009, the 2012 Aston Martin DBS Carbon Edition will be available in two new colors including Flame Orange and Ceramic Grey together with the existing Carbon Black. Each DBS will undergo Aston Martin's unique paint process receiving seven layers of paint together with 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 with a reversed diamond turned or full gloss black finish as an option. Complementing the wheels, black brake calipers will be delivered as standard with yellow, orange, red or grey as an option. Harmonizing with the exterior finish is a warm black grille, carbon fiber 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 looking 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 fiber fascia with a carbon weave that has been positioned exactly to follow the form of the dashboard. Only by hand can the fibers be laid to create a perfectly aligned weave.

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

The standard DBS has recently been updated to feature the new Aston Martin Garmin satellite navigation system possessing improved graphics and intuition to provide a sleeker user experience. Beam blade windscreen wipers are also a new feature providing reduced wind noise and a cleaner wipe, even at high speeds.

DBS Carbon Edition prices start at $287,576 for the coupe and $302,576 for the Volante with customer deliveries expected from quarter one 2012.

About the Aston Martin DBS

The DBS was launched in 2007 and is Aston Martin's ultimate GT sports car. Benefitting from weight saving materials including aluminum and carbon fiber; the DBS offers dynamic and aesthetic purity, an exquisite interior and a driving experience unsurpassed by any other car in its coupe and Volante forms. Its hand built V12 engine produces 510 hp (380 kW) making it one of the most powerful production cars Aston Martin has ever made. In 2009, the DBS 'Volante' (Aston Martin's nomenclature for convertible) joined the DBS line-up. The DBS has surpassed all sales expectations, and was uniquely launched through the now-famous chase scene in the James Bond film Casino Royale. Since its debut it has firmly established itself as a global favorite among customers, critics and fans alike.
