In five of the last seven years, surveys have shown that people think that Aston Martin is the coolest brand in the world. So if you want to be one of the coolest dudes in the world, you're going to need an Aston. If you want to stand out when surrounded by other Aston owners, you're going to need a special edition Aston, and luckily for you and the high paid doctor who is going to remove and sell your kidney, three special edition Astons just dropped.
First up are the Aston Martin DB9 Carbon Black and Carbon White editions. They feature some spiffy carbon fiber additions and are nice, if not inspiring.
More exciting is the Vantage N430 which is rocking the same 430 hp V8 as the Vantage S which sends its power through either a seven speed sequential gearbox or a six speed manual. In addition, it has been lightened quite a bit with carbon fiber, carbon-kevlar seats, and ten spoke forged wheels. The result is a respectable 4.6 second 0-60 time.
In addition, the Vantage gets tighter suspension, new steering ratios, a sportier exhaust, a race-inspired aero kit, and "club sports graphics packs."
