Frankfurt: Aston Martin DBS Carbon Edition – Photos image

Aston Martin has released pictures and prices for the 2012 DBS Carbon Edition.

This model, which features the firms V8 motor, produces 426-hp (6-hp more than usual). That power is sent to the rear-wheels via a six-speed manual or Sportshift automated manual gearbox.

Now available in Flame Orange and Ceramic Grey, the new models get the same unique paint treatment with seven layers that are then hand polished for 25 hours. In addition, the British automaker will now also offer a “satin lacquer” finish.

The interior sees obsidian black or Maranello orange semi-aniline leather upholstery, while the headliner on the coupe is quilted leather, too. Carbon fiber fascia on the dashboard finishes the unique touches.
Going on sale in early 2012, Aston Martin DBS Carbon Edition prices start at £186,582 (€257,912/$287,576) for the coupe and £196,581 (€272,913/$302,576) for the Volante.

For that kind of money, you also get a new set of 10-spoke gloss black diamond turned wheels with a reversed diamond turned or full gloss black finish as an option. Black brake calipers will be standard with yellow, orange, red or gray as an option.
