Aston Martin launches trio of new models -
22 December 2010

Aston Martin is releasing three special editions of its DB9 to celebrate the increased popularity of its tailor-made models.

Two of the editions - Carbon Black and Quantum Silver - offer sports specifications with a louder exhaust, black grilles, graphite tail pipes, 19in 10-spoke wheels and glass switchgear.

The other spec, Morning Frost, has pearlescent white paint, a different flavour of 19in wheels, magnum silver grilles and a piano black centre console.

All three of the cars have the standard spec of DB9 engine, a 6.0-litre V12 with 470bhp, and a Touchtronic II automatic transmission.

They’re available to order now, priced from £132,525 including VAT at 20 per cent.

It just goes to show that even premium manufacturers have to resort to special editions to shift stock during the lean times!

 

 

It's all about the twisties........

Ah but can I order the black one with the wheels from the white one? Theoretically of course...

All the DB9's are special if you ask me....Have not found a stocking big enough for one yet, but will keep looking and hoping!!

To live is to drive

I think they should do a Toyota trimmed and badged edition to add a new dimension to the experience of visiting a Toyota showroom.

Autocar = the official press office for aston martin special editions.

Question if all that Aston Martin offered was something as stupid as a graphite exhaust would Autocar make it their front page story? J

The unveiling of three special editions is a way of keeping an interest in a car which is obviously not selling as well as hoped. Good to see they have decided to use a buzz word Quantum in a bid to give it a trendy name, but I though Quantum is the study of physics at the smallest level.

Isn't it ironic that Lotus was able to get funding for future cars, yet Aston has not? Aston being the more famous, prestigious, luxurious, popular, internationally known etc. So sad that Aston can't raise a pound. j

Even though I believe the technology is getting on a bit in the DB9 I still believe it looks amazing and when driving around Town it turns heads like nothing else on the road, amazing design and a classic.

For a GT car its perfect I will take mine in white with the 19s

    Handsome entrant into the bulging small crossover market has a strong engine and agile handling, but isn’t as comfortable or complete as rivals

    Hyundai's funky-looking Kona crossover with a peppy three-cylinder engine makes all the right noises for the car to be a success in a crowded segment

    The Citroen C3 Aircross has got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron

    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer
