DB9 – THE BEST OF BRITISH IN A SPORTS GT
- DB9 13MY boasts new styling, revised engineering and enhanced luxury
- More power from updated 6.0-litre V12 engine, increased to 517 PS
- Technology includes Aston Martin’s latest generation adaptive damping
Aston Martin is today revealing full details of the latest major enhancements to its iconic Sports GT car, the luxurious and potent DB9.
Appearing hot on the heels of the all-new Vanquish Super GT, the introduction of 13 Model Year DB9 gives the British luxury sports car maker the perfect opportunity to further enrich the appeal of its mainstay in the GT sector, with significant developments affecting styling inside and out, plus key changes under the new DB9’s classically beautiful ‘skin’.
The styling changes see DB9 adopt an even more lithe, fluid and pure form reminiscent of the outgoing Aston Martin Virage, which ceases production with immediate effect. Taking a classic Aston Martin GT silhouette as its base, the new DB9 adds a more pronounced rear boot ‘flip’ to further enhance the aerodynamic performance of the car.
The exterior design of the DB9 communicates a powerfully assertive yet elegant character. The surfaces display taught lines and subtle muscular forms that point to the underlying power of this renowned Sports GT.
Inside, as out, the revised DB9 becomes yet more elegant and more luxurious. Unmistakably Aston Martin, the Sports GT’s opulently appointed interior boasts authentic materials and the highest levels of attention to detail.
Aston Martin Chief Executive Officer Dr Ulrich Bez said: “Aside from the undeniably beautiful exterior styling and now even more luxurious interior, there are many important and impressive engineering changes that demonstrate Aston Martin’s renowned ability to create compelling cars in the modern era.”
“With the exceptional new Vanquish super GT occupying the top of the range, there is now a clear and logical step from DB9.”
DB9 13MY is available to order now through Aston Martin dealers worldwide, with the first cars making their market debuts in UK and Western Europe in October.
