By itself, the Aston Martin Carbon Black DBS is one of the most desirable Aston Martins we’ve come to see outside, naturally, of the brand’s One-77 supercar.

So it is with heavy hearts that we show you what happens when a DBS Carbon Black Edition is given the Jeff Koons ‘Art Car’ treatment. We first saw this ‘streaks of color’ finish on the actual Art Car Koons was commissioned to do, a BMW M3 GT2 that actually raced at this year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans.

While that particular design looked pretty good on the M3 GT2, it does nothing but illicit groans and cringes on the Aston Martin DBS, especially since the matte black finish of the Carbon Black Edition already reeked of awesomeness on its own.

Now, what once was the Aston Martin Carbon Black DBS has been turned into a multi-colored streak of ugly. Let’s just hope that whoever did this has the common sense, not the mention decency, to restore the car to its former state, or he’d going to be the subject of some intense ridicule from a lot of people.

The stock DBS should itself be considered an art car. This weird color scheme is an insult to the car’s gorgeous design.

Last time I saw a car like this is an M3 GT2.
