Power. Beauty. Soul.
Imagine our excitement when we hear the gnarly roar of this beautiful V12 machine from down the street as it rolls into our studio – its sound and design alone embodying those very words offered by Aston Martin’s rich history of vehicles.
This limited edition Carbon Black DBS was recently purchased by our client and came in a far from satisfactory condition. Afflicted with heavy swirls, holograms, buffer trails and polish residue, this car required over 50 man hours to completely revamp from head to toe.
Once the works were complete, we were rewarded with a stunning image, paintwork that exuded deep gloss, bright metallic fleck and crisp reflections thanks to Aston Martin’s hand-sanded finish.

The rear bar had been repainted, causing a discrepancy in orange peel with the surrounding panels
After wetsanding, the orange peel is now reduced and matches the flatness of the rest of the car.
The soft-top compartment was filled with dust and contaminants
Steam cleaned and coated with Concours Nova Jet
