Aston Martin DB9: Three DB9 Special EditionsThu, 23 Dec 2010 00:00:00 -0800
Aston Martin DB9 Special Editions - choice of three
2010 has been a busy year for Aston Martin, what with the final arrival of the much anticipated Aston Martin Rapide, the confirmation of the much less anticipated Aston Martin Cygnet and the Aston Martin One-77 rolling out to customers (just about).
There have also been plenty of ‘Special Editions’ to keep the tills jingling, from the Dr Bez Special Aston Martin DBS UB to the V8 Vantage N420. Oh, and let’s not forget that one Limited Edition became a regular Aston Martin model – the Aston Martin V12 Vantage.
So it seems fitting that Aston Martin ends 2010 with another set of Special Editions, this time a trio of Aston Martin DB9 Special Editions, just in time for the New Year.
All three Special Editions – DB9 Morning Frost, DB9 Carbon Black and DB9 Quantum Silver – are purely cosmetic – no power tweaks here. But they are a good illustration of how Aston Martin are managing to churn out cars that feel more bespoke than the standard offerings just with some decent cosmetic tweaks and clever accessorising. Is this the handiwork of a woman?
The DB9 Morning Frost is a ‘luxury’ makeover, with Pearlescent White exterior and Metallic Bronze interior. That Metallic Bronze extends to the headlining and you’ll also get perforated seat inners and chunk of Piano Black trim. The exterior also gets 19″ 10-spoke silver alloys and silver grilles.
The DB9 Carbon Black and DB9 Quantum Silver are ‘Sporty’ makeovers with the paint job being the only real differentiator. Both models get a louder exhaust, 19″ 10-spoke gloss black alloys, black grilles, graphite tailpipes, perforated seat inners, semi-analine roof lining and coarse silver stitching. You also get real polished glass switchgear.
All three DB9 Limited Editions are available to order now with delivery in the New Year. You can opt for either a coupe or Volante and prices start at £132,525.
I’ll settle for the DB9 Carbon Black Coupe in my Christmas stocking. A nice way to end a busy year.
