Successor towards the hugely successful DB7, Aston-Martin’s ‘mainstream’ model is gaining well-deserved plaudits. Developed around a classy aluminium centre section, the DB9 tips the size at 25% under the DB7 it replaces.
DB9 includes a V12 engine with 48 valves along with a massive wave of torque. Handling and steering are merely flawless, the cabin may be the expected mixture of technology and craftsmanship, performance is stunning, and also the result’s possibly the best Aston-Martin ever.
The Coupe has already been here, and also the convertible (Volante) is going to be for sale towards the end of 2004.
