DB9 Carbon Volante

(2014 - 2015) 2015MY

Carbon Black or Carbon White (mostly)

Aston Martin chose to announce the new DB9 Carbon Editions a few weeks prior to the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. The DB9 Carbon was a new twist on the theme that started with the DBS and V12 Vantage Carbon Black models back in 2010. The new special edition was initially only offered with contemporary Carbon Black II  or Stratus White coachwork and minimal adornment. Striking exterior additions include carbon fibre side strakes and black window surrounds reinforcing the themes. Mechanically, the Carbon Volante are identical to the 2015MY DB9 including the use of the AM11 specification engine and Touchtronic 2 transmission.
