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.
Aston Martin DB9 range received a full package of engineering, equipment, and styling enhancements. This is the model’s most significant upgrades package since it debuted in 2003.
Considered to be the most successful Aston Martin ever (alongside the V8 Vantage), the Aston Martin DB9 established itself as the ultimate grand tourer through its enduring combination of sporting character, genuine luxury, and understated elegance.
According to Aston Martin CEO Ulrich Bez, the DB9 remains to be a very special car. It is your quintessential sporting grand tourer, offering an unparalleled combination of character, luxury, driver involvement, and refinement. What’s more, the DB9 is the perfect blend of unique Aston Martin character and uncompromised design philosophy, performance ability, and craftsmanship.
Furthermore, the new program of improvements perfectly complements Aston Martin’s core qualities. The subtle styling changes freshen up the DB9's look, with a bright finish radiator grille, a new front bumper, and a re-shaped lower intake that features a bright hexagonal mesh. Completing the external revisions are the car’s new headlight bezels, silver brake calipers, re-styled sills, clear rear light lenses, and 20-spoke diamond-turned alloy wheels.
Under the skin, the DB9's passive damping system was replaced by a new ADS or Adaptive Damping System, which delivers enhanced ride comfort along with sharper handling when it is switched to Sport mode. This ADS system comes as standard equipment for the entire Aston Martin DB9 range, including the Coupe and Volante. Broadening the car’s specifications are new and revised Bluetooth microphone system, tyre pressure monitoring system, Bang & Olufsen hi-fi options, and Double Apex alloy trim.
