Aston Martin announced today three DB9 Editions: Morning Frost, Carbon Black and Quantum Silver. The new DB9 Morning Frost comes with an extra sense of sophistication revealed by the pearlescent white exterior and completed by the metallic bronze leather interior.

The other editions feature a special Carbon Black paint and Quantum Silver made famous by the DBS featured in the last James Bond movie called Quantum of Solace.

The exterior is completed by the Obsidian Black interior along with a highly polished Piano Black centre console and interior door handles. Both the DB9 Carbon Black and Quantum Silver are offered with the six-speed Touchtronic II automatic transmission, new re-mapped sports exhaust delivering a better sound as well as 19" 10 spoke forged gloss black painted diamond-turned wheels.

Moreover, the special editions feature black grilles, graphite tail pipes, perforated seat inners, semi-aniline leather roof lining, coarse silver stitching and real polished glass switchgear complete the sport specification. The DB9 Morning Frost edition also features the Touchtronic II transmission mounted on the transaxle giving the car perfect 50:50 weight balance.

Furthermore, the car features 19" 10 spoke silver diamond-turned wheels, silver brake calipers, magnum silver grilles, and metallic bronze leather headlining with perforated seat inners along with Piano Black centre console and door grabs create a sophisticated ambiance.

Each edition will feature a unique laser etched sill plaque depicting the famous wings insignia along with "Morning Frost", "Carbon Black" or "Quantum Silver."

Aston Martin Celebrates 2010 - ‘The Year Of The Specials'

In 2010, Aston Martin celebrated its product line-up demonstrating its ability to react quickly to customer demands and to create tailor-fit sports cars. Aston Martin is agile as a small volume manufacturer and this year has created: V12 Vantage Carbon Black, DBS Carbon Black, DBS UB2010, V8 Vantage N420 and now new DB9 offerings will cater for individual tastes across the world.

This attention to individual tailoring began in February when production of the Carbon Black editions began, followed in March with a Works Tailored commission made by Aston Martin to celebrate CEO, Dr. Ulrich Bez's tenth anniversary at the helm of the marque in creating 40 limited edition UB-2010 DBSs. The unique specification includes metallic leather with a woven leather seat insert. The car bears the signature of Dr. Bez, who is personally signing-off each example.

In July, Aston Martin announced the V8 Vantage N420 limited edition; a race inspired version of the V8 Vantage celebrating the marque's close links with the famous Nürburgring Nordschleife where the development of all Aston Martins takes place, and where each year, multiple Vantage entries compete at the Nürburgring 24 hour race.

The new DB9 editions offer three juxtaposed options; the Morning Frost luxury specification gives the DB9 an extra sense of sophistication resplendent in a pearlescent white exterior with a befitting metallic bronze leather interior. In contrast, the two menacing sport specifications take advantage of the special edition Carbon Black paint and Quantum Silver made famous by the DBS featured in the last James Bond movie, Quantum of Solace. The exterior finishes perfectly compliment the Obsidian Black interior along with a highly polished Piano Black centre console and interior door handles.

Both the DB9 Carbon Black and Quantum Silver also feature the six-speed Touchtronic II automatic transmission, a re-mapped sports exhaust providing an even more evocative sound when driving spiritedly and unique 19" 10 spoke forged gloss black painted diamond-turned wheels. Black grilles, graphite tail pipes, perforated seat inners, semi-aniline leather roof lining, coarse silver stitching and real polished glass switchgear complete the sport specification.

The DB9 Morning Frost also benefits from the Touchtronic II transmission mounted on the transaxle giving the car perfect 50:50 weight balance. 19" 10 spoke silver diamond-turned wheels, silver brake calipers, magnum silver grilles, and metallic bronze leather headlining with perforated seat inners along with Piano Black centre console and door grabs create a sophisticated ambiance.

The three editions are bestowed with a unique laser etched sill plaque depicting the famous wings insignia along with "Morning Frost", "Carbon Black" or "Quantum Silver."

These special editions are available to order now from Aston Martin's global dealership network.
