Aston Martin is planning to make the 2014 Geneva Motor Show a white tie event with carbon special edition DB9 models in black and white. The Aston Martin DB9 Carbon special edition cars will feature the same powertrain, but be dressed to the nines in luxurious black or white with glorious carbon fiber.
As for the design cues for the black and white carbon edition cars, Aston Martin describes the inspiration and overall effect as “visual drama”. I would agree.
While Aston Martin has released a black carbon fiber DB9 previously (2010), the pairing with the white version should look exquisite on stage at the Geneva show. It would appear that the carbon fiber craze is far from over in the exotic sports car world, which is not a bad thing. It would have been more exciting to see even a slight performance increase, the definition of a special edition exotic sports car is quite loose, however.
