Article by Christian Andrei, on September 19, 2014

After the successful DB9 Carbon editions, Aston Martin decided to boost its sales even more with the addition of the 2015 Vanquish Carbon Black and Carbon White special editions. Available on the Vanquish Coupe or Volante, the 2015 Vanquish Carbon Black Special Edition will arrive at the 2014 Paris Motor Show showing its strong dark theme, complemented by carbon fiber elements.

Meanwhile, the 2015 Vanquish Carbon White Special Edition shows a contrast between the Stratus White paint and contrasting carbon fiber as well as dark elements. Both Carbon Black and Carbon White editions arrive with black window surrounds an 10-spoke alloy wheels painted in gloss black. Same theme is continued at the interior where we find carbon fiber accents and black hardware.

Aston Martin offers plenty of features for the interior such as the carbon fiber sill plaques with Carbon Black or Carbon White logos, a herringbone carbon fiber fascia, black anodized centre stack rotaries, Obsidian Black leather, optional contrast stitching and black gearshift paddles with accent coloured leather tips In addition, the vehicles arrive with exposed carbon fiber roof panel (coupe only), carbon fiber side strakes, carbon fiber mirror caps and arms and a machined carbon-fiber ‘wings’ badge available as an option.

Under the hood, we find the same 6.0-liter V12 engine bolted to a new Touchtronic III 8-speed automatic transmission, that produces 568 bhp and 465 lb-ft (630 Nm) of torque. With these numbers, the Vanquish accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.8 seconds (0-60 mph in 3.6 seconds), while top speed is in excess of 200 mph or 320 km/h.

Aston Martin Design Director Marek Reichman said: “I’m sure the Vanquish Carbon special edition models will generate a huge amount of interest, and desire, among existing and prospective Aston Martin customers.
