MORE SPECIAL: Aston Martin has launched three special edition packages for its DB9 sports car.

As 2010 draws to a close, it seems Aston Martin is not quite done thrilling fans of its special editions.

Three new DB9 models – Morning Frost, Carbon Black and Quantum Silver – are up for the taking.

Morning Frost is finished in a pearlescent white paint and has an interior in bespoke metallic bronze leather with piano black surfaces for the centre console and door handles.

On the other hand, the Carbon Black and Quantum Silver versions of the DB9 take on more sinister, sportier appearances. The Carbon Black version is finished in the special edition paint of the same name, while the latter pays homage to the last James Bond film, Quantum of Solace.

Both cars are fitted with Obsidian Black interiors with piano black centre consoles and door releases.


They also feature remapped sports exhausts for more exhilarating audio feedback to highlight the two cars' sports specifications.

All cars are equipped with a six-speed Touchtronic II automatic transmission and bespoke 19" diamond-turned wheels.

Morning Frost, Carbon Black or Quantum Silver are also emblazoned on the sill plates of the respective cars, alongside laser etchings of the marque’s wings insignia.

Technical specifications for the special edition DBS models are unchanged.
