Well well well. One of the most beautiful (and most gratuitous) Aston Martins in the world is now for sale on JamesList courtesy of Prestige Cars Abu Dhabi. And if you’re unsure of what this beast is all about, we had previously posted up detailed photos when we spotted it in person at Frankfurt. But a quick summary is that Mansory took a DB9 and redid the entire body in full carbon fiber, widening it at the same time to mimic the styling of the One-77.

What we’re finding thoroughly entertaining about the listing is that there is little to no information on the car, as if it’s not required. Best of all, there’s no price listed at all but it’s available upon request – naturally. We’ll take a wild stab that if you have to ask, you can’t afford it.

We knew exotic car tuner Mansory was set to debut a fabulously hideous blue and gold Rolls-Royce Ghost at the Geneva Auto Show, but what surprised us was its equally outrageous co-stars. Sitting next to the Ghost, there’s also a widebody Porsche Panamera (which doesn’t look all that bad), the Cyrus carbon widebody Aston Martin DB9 and another carbon fiber clad beast, a Mercedes G Class.

The Rolls is still the main attraction, however, with gaudy gold wheels and detailing (including the grille). We particularly detest the gold fender vents sitting right next to the gold Rolls-Royce emblems.

What we do like is what Mansory has done under the massive hood, taking the twin-turbo V12 to 720-hp thanks to some larger turbos and other upgrades. Torque is rated at 750 lbs and Mansory estimates the car’s new top speed to be 193 mph. Ugly has never been so fast.

Be sure to check out the gallery below, for more pics of the Mansory Ghost and of the other Mansory-tuned cars at the Geneva Auto Show.

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.
