Default Special 'Carbon Black' Editions of AM's V12 Vantage and DBS!

Presenting the new DBS Carbon Black Edition and V12 Vantage Carbon Black Edition that feature a bespoke Carbon Black metallic paint especially formulated with a subtle metallic twist to create a deep rich patina. The side streak of the V12 Vantage has been fashioned from real carbon fibre backed by a black mesh and complimented by gloss black 10 spoke diamond turned alloy wheels. Front features a bright finished grille and front parking sensors, that are normally optional.
Interior upgrades include Obsidian Black leather highlighted with a contrast silver coarse stitch – all hand stitched. New lightweight carbon fiber seats save 17 kg (37 lbs) over the standard seats. Other interior highlights are a Piano black facia trim and carbon fiber trim.
The V12 Vantage comes with Aston Martin 700w Premium Audio System, while the DBS boasts the Bang & Olufsen Beosound DBS audio system.
Prices will be confirmed in the New Year, with final pricing expected to be approximately 5% over current base prices. European customers who order a Carbon Black Edition V12 Vantage will have the opportunity to experience Aston Martin’s renowned Performance Driving Course free of charge which offers a memorable day helping customers to equip themselves with the skill sets to enhance the enjoyment of their Aston Martin on the track.

Default Fabulous

AM is my favourite. What a car! Drop dead gorgeous and it reeks of class that very few cars, even high end European marques, can match.

Cheers

Car looks great, but the alloys look very local.

But I prefer the DBS' wheels. They look quite classy! The Vantage V12's wheels look pretty local!

398mm Carbon Ceramics (360mm at the back)! A very similar set of discs can be seen on the Ferrari 430 Scuderia as well!

True Suhaas, didn't take notice of that. The DBS's wheels are slick indeed.
Actually I read the title and just scrolled down the page only to forget that 2 different models are being discussed. Why not seperate the pics with titles brother, 'coz it isn't that easy to distinguish with the carbon effect and pics lined together.

It's hard to distinguish the V12 Vantage and the DBS first of all. And to make things harder, AM has given them the 'black' treatment.

Perhaps the Mods could help slice the post into two?

For those who find it hard to distinguish the two

Picture no. 1, 2 and 3: DBS

Picture no. 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8: V12 Vantage
