The Wheelsandmore Aston Martin DBS Carbon Edition + ExposedNovember 15, 2012 • By Ryan Konko
A bit of fun for the special edition.
The Aston Martin DBS is the pinnacle of performance for those that couldn’t reserve one of the 77 Aston Martin One-77 models. Its 5.9-liter V-12 is brutally beautiful and its style is timeless, especially when it’s one of the few DBS Carbon Edition models. The team at Wheelsandmore has taken the special edition super car to a new level with a light-but-exciting upgrade program that will surely put a smile on any driver’s face.
The new Wheelsandmore Aston Martin DBS Carbon Edition + is based on the special Carbon Edition DBS with its unique carbon accessories, paint scheme, and design. The naturally-aspirated 5.9-liter V-12 engine that emits an oh-so-sexy soundtrack was improved with some subtle modifications that add quite a bit of excitement. A new “CRP” kit was developed by the German tuner and includes new Formula 1-style air filters and a flap-controlled exhaust system with a catalytic converter replacement kit. These modifications result in a total output of 557 horsepower and 486 lb-ft. of torque with much of the torque coming at lower engine speeds for a broader power curve.
Arguably the most noticeable aspect of the Wheelsandmore DBS Carbon Edition + is the new exterior styling thanks to the factory upgrades and the chassis modifications from the German tuner. The factory wheels were replaced with new handcrafted 6Sporz² three-piece forged wheels in a 9.5 x 21 front and 12.0 x 21 rear setup with 265/30/21 and 325/25/21 Continental Sport Contact 5P performance tires. Each wheel was finished with a complex gold carbon-look finish on the wheel lips and centers. As an option customers can also order special RAL-colored outlines on the outer lips. The finishing touch is a set of lowering springs that reduce the center of gravity by 25 mm.
The entire Wheelsandmore Aston Martin DBS Carbon Edition + upgrade program is currently available for the special carbon edition models from the British marquee. Customers can also order individual modifications for the super car.
