Aston Martin DB9 special editions
British supercar maker Aston Martin has launched a trio of special editions of its DB9 coupé to mark the end of 2010.
The end of 2010 is almost upon us, but that hasn’t stopped Aston Martin managing to squeeze in not one but three new special editions of its DB9 supercar, all of which have just gone on sale from Aston dealers.
The three editions are called the Morning Frost, Carbon Black and Quantum Silver, are available as either coupe or Volante convertible bodystyles costing from £132,525 upwards, and including VAT at the new 20 per cent rate.
The DB9 Morning Frost is intended to be a more luxurious offering, as it features pearlescent white paint, 19-inch 10-spoke alloys and silver brake calipers on the outside, while the interior gets metallic bronze leather on the seats and headlining, and piano black trim.
Both the Carbon Black and Quantum Silver editions feature either black or silver paint, different 19-inch alloys and a sports exhaust, plus more piano black trim, a semi-aniline leather roof lining and polished glass switchgear.
All cars are powered by the familiar 470bhp 6.0-litre V12 engine and six-speed automatic gearbox, and all get a laser etched sill plaque depicting the Aston Martin logo along with “Morning Frost”, “Carbon Black” or “Quantum Silver.”
The three new specials join a host of other limited Astons which have broken cover in 2010. This year has seen the debut of the V12 Vantage Carbon Black, DBS Carbon Black, DBS UB2010 – a limited run of 40 cars in tribute to the firm’s boss Ulrich Bez – and the V8 Vantage N420, inspired by the legendary Nurburgring race circuit where Aston’s research and development centre is located.
