Recently, Al & Eds Autosound in West Hollywood, CA, finished customizing this brand new Aston Martin DBS Volante. As beautiful as an Aston Martin DBS is, sometimes what comes from the factory is just not good enough.
As one of the sexiest roadsters on the market today, Al & Eds Autosound took the car to new heights with all of its additions. Since the DBS has a long low front end, custom made skid plates were installed to protect the front bumper from cracking and scrapping when entering into low slopping drive ways. Then they installed 3M clear bra material on the full hood, fenders, bumper and on the carbon fiber exterior areas to protect it from rock chips that may occur while driving.
The exterior color of this car is called Fire Storm Black, which is black paint with the most beautiful red metallic flake in it only noticeable when the sun shines on it. The red flake inspired them to incorporate more “red” elements in this car. First they painted the brake calipers red. Then they made the “S’ badge in the rear of the car red as well. The factory seat belts were replaced with red ones, while the seat and door panel inserts were reupholstered in red Alcantara suede. The steering wheel was recovered using black perforated supple leather on the sides with black Alcantara on the bottom and red Alcantara on the top. Of course red stitching was used to finish it all off. Custom handmade plush floor mats were created displaying the Aston Martin wings in matching red.
The factory 20-inch wheels were replaced with custom made-to-order Giovanna GFG Series 3-piece forged California wheels. Custom finished with a machined center, black face lines and a chrome outer lip these 21-inch front and 22-inch rear wheels with Michelin Pilot Sport 2 tires gives this car the ultimate stance.
To protect the owner from getting speeding tickets we installed the Escort 9500Ci top of the line “Ticket Avoidance System”. This system warns the driver of X, K & KA radar bands while diffusing laser signals. Since this system also has built in GPS technology it also warns you audibly and visually of known speeding traps and camera intersections.
