2012 Aston Martin DBS Carbon Edition

When a vehicle is launched into the public through an intense car chase scene featuring no less than Agent 007 himself, James Bond, then it is almost a certainty that the vehicle will be racking up huge amounts of sales.

This is exactly the case for the DBS line of cars by the car company Aston Martin, as they were first seen by the public in Casino Royale.

And since that famous chase scene that allowed the public to glimpse into the groundbreaking new line of cars by Aston Martin, the company has never looked back, releasing several other models, the latest of which is the 2012 Aston Martin DBS Carbon Edition that is expected to follow on the heels of the high sales of previous models.

But more than being a mere addition to an already established line of cars, the Aston Martin DBS Carbon Edition also has unique features of its own, the best of which is its unique exterior and interior design that is unprecedented. The silk-like finish of the vehicle was achieved through a painstaking process that involved seven layers of paint and 25 hours of polishing and finishing by hand, thus ensuring that the vehicle had undergone meticulous attention to detail.

Exterior & Interior

The wheels of the vehicle also exude luxury and grandeur, as they feature black diamond turned wheels. Other noticeable features of the DBS Carbon Edition include an imposing black grill, carbon-fiber mirror heads, smoked rear lights, and carbon rear lamp fill-ins that ensure that the prospective driver of the vehicle will still be able to see down dark paths and during intense weather conditions.

And finally, the regal air that is exuded by the vehicle’s exterior is, of course, sustained by its interior, as it is made from the finest materials that are guaranteed to provide comfort to its drivers and passengers.

The 2012 Aston Martin DBS Carbon Edition is certainly more than a mere addition to the well-loved line of Aston Martins.
