The arrival of the DB9 Carbon Black and Carbon White special editions brings
visual drama and style to the Aston Martin DB9 lineup.
The Aston Martin Design Director Marek Reichman said that the "classic DB9 Carbon Black and daring DB9 Carbon White special editions give this timeless GT a fresh and highly desirable new appearance."
The new Carbon Black accentuates the 183 mph DB9's 6.0-liter V12 potential through a strong dark theme underpinned by a unique combination of lightweight carbon fiber features. Meanwhile, the contemporary Carbon White special edition creates a dramatic visual effect with the carbon fiber and dark elements contrasting strongly against the Stratus White paint and accented caliper color.
Striking exterior additions for both Carbon Black and Carbon White editions include carbon fiber side strakes and black window surrounds reinforcing the powerful visual themes.
Inside, a strong black styling theme with a choice of accent colors in line with the caliper shade showcases carbon fiber details and new black hardware. Bespoke sill plaques with the Carbon Black or Carbon White 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.
Today's DB9 features the modern AM11 V12 engine which uses 'Gen4' VH architecture and hardware, tuned to suit the character of a classic GT. The result is an engine with effortless torque of up to 457 lb (620 Nm) and peak power of 510 hp.
