If you’ve been waiting patiently – even not so patiently – to get your hands on the new Aston Martin DBS Carbon Black Edition, you’ll still have to wait until the summer to take delivery. In order to give its new limited edition DBS Carbon Black a proper introduction in North America, Aston Martin will showcase the car on a seven-city tour.
In a special demonstration organized by Aston’s exclusive audio partner Bang & Olufsen – which furnishes the 13-speaker, 1000-watt sound system in the DBS – a pair of the special Carbon Black editions will be touring America. Along their route, they’ll be hitting New York, Washington, Miami, Dallas, Chicago, San Francisco and LA.
Announced back in December, the DBS Carbon Black is largely a cosmetic revision of Aston’s already potent DBS. The car’s name stems from the custom Carbon Black paint metallic paint. Aston Martin says the color was specially formulated to include a subtle metallic twist, and takes nearly 50 hours of labor to properly apply.
If you do swing by a local Aston dealer when the Carbon Black editions are in town, you’ll see a pair of DBS coupes with a special-process black flick paint and an interior with carbon-Kevlar seats covered in black leather with silver stitching, along with special wheels and badging.
