Aston Martin revealed today ahead of the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show two new Carbon Edition DBS sports cars. The new vehicles follow the success of the DBS Carbon Black introduced back in 2009 and will be available in two new colors: Flame Orange and Ceramic Grey, both colors joining the existing Carbon Black.
According to the manufacturer, each car will undergo firm’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.
Moreover, Aston Martin will offer the option to specify a satin lacquer paint finish, creating a silk-like texture. The design of the car will be completed by the 10-spoke gloss black diamond turned wheels featuring a reversed diamond turned or full gloss black finish as an option.
Behind these wheels we will find the standard black brake calipers, while the yellow, orange, red or grey colors will be available as an option. Furthermore, the exterior also gets a warm black grille, carbon fibre mirror heads, carbon rear lamp in-fills and smoked rear lights.
