Aston Martin debuts the DB9 Carbon Black and Carbon White special editions

Article by Christian Andrei, on February 19, 2014

Aston Martin announced that at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show it will unveil the DB9 Carbon Black and Carbon White special editions. Emphasizing the timeless GT sporting nature, the new Carbon Black and Carbon White editions feature carbon fibre side strakes and black window surrounds that reinforce the powerful visual themes.

If the Carbon White special edition creates a dramatic visual effect with the carbon fibre and dark elements that contrast against the Stratus White paint and accented caliper colour, the Carbon Black accentuates the strong dark theme through unique combinations of lightweight carbon fiber features.

Inside, we find bespoke sill plaques with the Carbon Black or Carbon White logo, while the strong black styling theme with a choice of accent colours in line with the caliper shade showcases carbon fibre details and new black hardware. Under the hood, we find the 6.0-liter V12 engine rated at 517 hp and 620 Nm of torque. Pricing is available on request at any of Aston Martin’s 147 dealers.

The Aston Martin DB9 family grows at Geneva with the arrival of the DB9 Carbon Black and Carbon White special editions

Style and visual drama are the special editions hallmarks as they perfectly emphasise the timeless GT’s sporting nature.

The new Carbon Black accentuates the 183 mph DB9’s 6.0-litre V12 potential through a strong dark theme underpinned by a unique combination of lightweight carbon fibre features. Meanwhile, the contemporary Carbon White special edition creates a dramatic visual effect with the carbon fibre and dark elements contrasting strongly against the Stratus White paint and accented caliper colour.

Striking exterior additions for both Carbon Black and Carbon White editions include carbon fibre side strakes and black window surrounds reinforcing the powerful visual themes.

Inside, a strong black styling theme with a choice of accent colours in line with the caliper shade showcases carbon fibre 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 620 Nm and peak power of 517 PS.

Prices for the special edition DB9 Carbon Black and Carbon White models are available on application at any of Aston Martin’s 147 dealers.

Aston Martin Design Director Marek Reichman explained: “The classic DB9 Carbon Black and daring DB9 Carbon White special editions give this timeless GT a fresh and highly desirable new appearance.

“Meanwhile, the exciting details that define N430 should leave no one in any doubt about the car’s motorsport roots. Bold graphic treatments and the option of vivid colour combinations conjure up clear visual echoes of the race circuit.”

Aston Martin can be found at stand number 5253 in Hall 5 at this year’s Geneva International Motor Show, once again taking place at the Palexpo complex. The marque will be showcasing eight cars at this year’s show, with examples of the new V8 Vantage N430 and DB9 Carbon Black sitting alongside other current models including the Rapide S four-door sports car and new Vanquish Volante.
