First unveiled at the Frankfurt Auto Show, the carbon fiber bodied Aston Martin DB9 (first thought to be a DBS), drew crowds even when competing with the launch of exotics like the Ferrari 458. Needless to say, not all those examining the ultra-thick carbon fiber weave were in favor of the modification. Germany tuner Mansory has shown examples of such extravagance in the past, but never before on a model as noble as an Aston Martin.

Along with the photos we snapped at the show, we now have a whole gallery of pics Mansory has supplied, showing the carbon creation revving its V12 engine in the wild.

Along with the notable carbon bodywork, Mansory built the DB9 as a full widebody with a new front end mimicking the one found on Aston’s upcoming supercar, the One-77. Thanks to these new photos we also get a great new look at the car’s incredibly custom exterior.

Germany exotic car tuner Mansory continues to one-up itself with custom creations, the latest of which is an exposed carbon-body Aston Martin DBS. Looking like something you might find on a race track with black wheels, wider fenders, a massive rear diffuser and an additional spoiler, this custom DBS also sports a very special front end.

This DBS, called Cyrus by Mansory, sorts a carbon version of the same grille that apears on Aston’s upcoming One-77 supercar.

Mansory hasn’t released any info on if the Cyrus has any engine modifications, but then under-the-hood work has never been their specialty. Besides, with a 510hp V12 engine, there’s already plenty of power on tap.
