The Aston Martin Vanquish Carbon is gearing up for sale as the British brand seeks to further revitalise its GT lineup with the introduction of an eight-speed automatic transmission back in August.

Available in both coupe ($497,995) or convertible (Volante at $535,000) body styles, the Vanquish Carbon gains black window surrounds, bespoke gloss-black alloy wheels, darkened headlights on the outside, while the interior gains herringbone carbon-fibre trim, updated leather upholstery and anodised speaker grilles in black for the pumping Bang & Olufsen sound system.

The 2015 Aston Martin Vanquish is powered by a 6.0-litre V12 engine delivering 424kW of power 630Nm of torque. With the eight-speed transmission now in place, the 0-100km/h sprint has been significantly improved to 3.8 seconds (previously 4.1), while fuel economy is rated at 12.9L/100km (if you drive it like a Corolla).

Aston Martin Australia says the Carbon edition will arrive early 2015.
