Giving a supercar the special edition treatment is all about excess, and Aston Martin is getting excessive with its new Carbon Black DBS and V12 Vantage.

The Carbon Black treatment consists of a bespoke paint color, the Carbon Black and for the V12 Vantage, the strake in the guards are made from carbon fibre backed by black mesh and 10-spoke alloy wheels. Both models get a bright-finish grille and front parking sensors. If that doesn’t sound special, it takes 50 man-hours of work to just paint the car.

Inside, lightweight carbon fibre/kevlar seats cut 18kg pounds out of the cabin. Elsewhere there’s piano black trim plus anodized aluminum black tread plates and unique sill plaques, leaving no doubt to the car’s black theme. The V12 Vantage gets the 700-Watt Premium Audio System while the DBS enjoys sound from Bang & Olufsen’s Beosound system.

In addition to the special look and equipment packages, new owners of the Carbon Black editions will also get a free ticket to the Aston Martin Performance Driving Course to test the cars out and learn their limits, but only in the UK and Europe, so buy your car there.

The Carbon Black editions can be ordered directly through the Aston Martin dealer network. Prices will start from about 5% above standard pricing, with first deliveries globally in March, 2010.
