Aston Martin Carbon Craze Continues: Another Set of Black and White Specials

Aston Martin Vanquish

Aston Martin is continuing with its carbon craze, this time with a new set. The Aston Martin Vanquish carbon special editions will be offered in black and white, just like the DB9 carbon set. There will also be a Volante carbon special edition–all will be unveiled at the 2014 Paris Auto Show next month. Aston Martin has released a teaser announcing the special edition carbon Vanquish and Volante models. They are to debut at the Paris Auto Show in October. 

Like the special DB9 carbon cars, there will be sleek black or white shells offset with plenty of delicious carbon fiber accents and elements. There will be awesome exposed carbon fiber on the roof, arms, mirrors and the logos. The wheels are to be black alloy for both the white and black versions and the window trims will be murdered out. For buyers who do not wish to live in a black or white world, there are color highlight options available…which could ruin the look should a celebrity like Paris Hilton opt to turn it into pepto bismol.

Wheelsandmore Tweak Aston Martin Vanquish

Aston Martin Vanquish

We have mentioned projects by German aftermarket tuner ‘Wheelsandmore’ in the past. The talented tuner is at it again, this time tweaking an Aston Martin Vanquish. The matte black wheels alone make the upgrades appealing.

Aston Martin Vanquish tweaked by talented tuner Wheelsandmore. The colors and small details turned out to be very smooth.

The Wheelsandmore Aston Martin Vanquish upgrades at a glance:

  • 6Sporz² wheels in matte black. These look fantastic paired with the charcoal exterior and small touches of red. The overall vibe is sporty. It just looks fast.
  • Awesome red brake calipers
  • The wheel dimensions are 9.5×21 with 265/30/21 in front and 12.5X21 with 325/25/21 in rear. 
  • The set of wheels alone is 10,756 euros. Wheelsandmore also offers custom carbon rims, but that price is not listed. I assume those who ask do not have an issue with spending. 
  • The performance kit is a complete intake/exhaust package 
  • An F1 air filter
  • Valve controlled exhaust
  • ECU upgrade kicks the ponies from 573 up to 600

The standard Aston Martin Vanquish already boasts a lightweight aluminum, magnesium alloy and carbon fiber composite body. For this reason, Wheelsandmore saved some money in the power-increase arena. Specifications for the standard Vanquish include: read more
