Shortly before Christmas 2009, AM announced a pair of similar special editions based of the V12 Vantage and DBS Coupe/Volante. The Carbon Black models featured bespoke Carbon Black metallic paint especially formulated with a subtle metallic twist to create a deep rich patina.

Inside, owners were greeted to swathes of Obsidian Black leather highlighted with a contrast silver coarse stitch. Lightweight seats formed from Carbon Fibre and Kevlar saved 17 kg over the standard seat although these were only available with the 2+0 seating. The DBS boasted the Bang & Olufsen Beosound 1000W DBS audio system as standard. The price of the DBS Carbon Black was around 5% more than the base DBS Coupe.

  • Coachwork in bespoke Carbon Black metallic paint
  • Manual gearbox as standard with Touchtronic 2 offered as no-cost option
  • Obsidian Black leather with a contrast silver coarse stitch

Although it was not a numbered limited edition, the Carbon Black was limited to just a single car per dealer, so they are really quite scarce. In addition to the coupe, the DBS Carbon Black was also available with the Volante body style.
