Aston Martin’s recently announced special edition, the DBS Carbon Black, will make its first appearance in North America this March. The highly desirable edition of the company’s latest flagship model, which has undergone a unique Carbon Black makeover, will be showcased at a series of events hosted with Aston Martin brand partners Bang & Olufsen in cities across the US.
Celebrating the enormous success of the DBS, which has surpassed all sales expectations since launch, the new special edition adds a typically understated flair to this acclaimed flagship model. Featuring bespoke Carbon Black metallic paint especially formulated with a subtle metallic twist to create a deep rich patina, each car will undergo 50 man-hours of hand painting followed by stringent quality checks.
Inside, owners will be greeted to swathes of Obsidian Black leather highlighted with a contrast silver coarse stitch all hand stitched by the craftspeople at Aston Martin’s global headquarters and award-winning production facility in Gaydon, England. This attention to detail in craftsmanship carries through to the Piano black facia trim, centre stack and centre console, anodized black tread plates and unique sill plaques.
The DBS boasts the Bang & Olufsen Beosound DBS audio system as standard. The BeoSound DBS system has been designed exclusively for Aston Martin and produces a natural, pure sound with its 13-channel Digital Signal Processing (DSP) platform, 13 self-contained speaker cabinets with 10 individual speaker locations, and over 1000 watts of power. In addition, the in-car listening experience is heightened as the sound stage adjusts to accommodate the number of people in the car as determined by the seat belt fastening.
The first two Carbon Black Special Editions will arrive in the US this March where they will make their debut as part of a series of luxury events to be held in partnership with Bang & Olufsen at exclusive locations across the country. First deliveries of the DBS Carbon Black to customers will be in summer 2010.
