Aston Martin DB9

British carmaker Aston Martin developed the well-known DB9, a model covered in metallic Volcano Red paint. Anyway, bottom line is that the new Aston Martin DB9 is the most elegant Grand Tourer there is. For the 2013 model year, the car had to go under the knife. Last September we had the opportunity to see it in all its beauty, but with a more aggressive and athletic appearance. It is now available with new technology and a solid bump in power. It features sharpened and elongated front lights, LED makers and daytime running lamps along with its gaping lower intake with a carbon-fiber front splitter. There are no significant modifications in terms of lower rear fascia, but it has a more visible lower diffuser styled o emphasize its aggressiveness. As the US customers would say, at the rear it has an integrated spoiler to boost the sporty demeanor and reduce lift.



The interior of the car has been improved to offer more elegance and refinement. It also features a new racetrack pinstripe color-contrasting welt that runs down either side of the console. The cockpit is plush, comfortable and it smells great. The engineers have built it on the 4th generation VH all-aluminum monocoque chassis. The prove platform is quite stiff and it actually acts like a backbone for the 3rd generation 3-mode Adaptive Damping System. To handle the extra power, the engineers have provided massive carbon-ceramic discs with 6-piston calipers. To transfer the output to the road, the model received 20-inch alloy wheels covered in Pirelli P-Zero tires, all offered as standard.



The 6.0-liter V12 engine is capable of producing 510 horsepower and 457 lb. ft. of torque. All this output enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds and to reach a top speed of 183 mph. the starting price was established at $183.700.
