The carbon package leaves the powertrain untouched, but promises "visual drama."Aston Martin has lifted the veil off of the DB9 Carbon Edition at the Geneva Motor Show. Like the DBS Carbon Edition, the DB9 Carbon Black and DB9 Carbon White focus on "style and visual drama" rather than performance or handling upgrades. The existing V12 powerplant remains unchanged, producing 510 horsepower and 457 lb-ft of torque.
The Carbon Black features a black exterior and interior, with a choice of colors for the brake calipers and matching stitching on the black leather upholstery. The Carbon White edition maintains the dark interior but switches to a Stratus White body.
Both integrate a number of carbon fiber components, including the side strakes, mirror housings, diffuser and brake-light frames, among other features.
"The classic DB9 Carbon Black and daring DB9 Carbon White special editions give this timeless GT a fresh and highly desirable new appearance," says Aston Martin design director Marek Reichman.
The DB9 Carbon Black and Carbon White will be available in coupe and Volante convertible configurations.
