The launch of the new DB11 may have made the DB9 and all its variants, including the DBS, obsolete, but that’s actually good news for those who always fancied one by couldn’t afford it. Prices are plummeting on the outgoing model, and that means you can now have a pristine special edition like this Aston Martin DBS Carbon Black edition for €174,500 (originally €257,912).
On sale at Hoefnagels showroom in the Netherlands, this 2011 Aston Martin DBS Carbon Black is in tiptop shape even though it has done 54,000 kilometers. What sets this model apart is, of course, the special treatment that comes with the Carbon Black edition, including a special paint job that consists of seven layers of paint together with a 25 hour hand flat-and-polish finish for a unique glossy shine.
Other highlights of Aston Martin DBS Carbon Black include 10-spoke gloss black diamond turned wheels with a reversed diamond turned, black brake calipers, carbon fibre mirror heads, carbon rear lamp in-fills and smoked rear lights, obsidian black semi-aniline leather, quilted leather headliner, carbon fibre facia with a carbon weave that has been positioned exactly to follow the form of the dashboard, and a special edition plaque.
