2013 Aston Martin DB9 OverviewThe 4-seat Aston Martin DB9 is the ultimate luxury GT, both in coupe and convertible Volante form. Underlying its many attributes is a chassis in the coupe that delivers 20 percent more stiffness than in previous years, while the Volante is 30 percent stiffer. The car is also incredibly balanced, with weight distribution of 51/49 percent front to rear. The revised independent suspension features 3-stage adaptive damping, with Normal, Sport and Track modes providing corresponding levels of performance depending upon driver preference and driving conditions. Stopping power comes courtesy of ventilated Carbon Ceramic Matrix brakes, which offer incredible stopping power. The DB9 rides on 20-inch five-spoke alloy wheels, with Z-rated Pirelli tires providing the grip.
Both coupe and Volante are powered by an all-aluminum 6.0L V12, which produces 510 horsepower and 457 ft-lb of torque. The big engine is mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission with limited-slip differential and delivers quite athletic performance, with a 0?60 mph time of 4.6 seconds and top speed of 183 mph.
Standard equipment in the DB9 includes a full-grain leather interior with walnut and graphite accents, heated mirrors, automatic HID headlights, automatic temperature control, satellite navigation and satellite radio, front and rear parking sensors, a rearview camera, an exclusive Lamy pen and pen holder, premium audio system and a trunk-mounted umbrella.
Optional equipment can take the DB9 to another level. This includes appearance features such as carbon fiber exterior accents and a range of 20-inch wheels, or interior pleasantries like a 1000-watt Bang & Olufsen stereo, exotic wood trims, a leather headliner, special seat embroidery, personalize sill plates and much more.
2013 Aston Martin DB9 Model Changes
The Aston Martin DB9 has been redesigned for 2014. The changes are subtle, but do include a stiffer chassis and new body panels for more than 70 percent of the car, made from bonded and riveted aluminum. The result is a car slightly lighter than the one it replaces. Most noticeably, the front end features a new headlight treatment, lip spoiler, and fender vents. Underhood, the DB9's 6.0L V12 benefits from new cylinder heads, larger throttle bodies and dual variable valve timing, which results in a significant power bump; the engine is now rated at 510 hp and 457 ft-lb of torque. Aston claims a time of 4.6 seconds from 0 to 60 mph. The 3-stage adaptive damping system has been tweaked, and Carbon Ceramic Matrix brakes debut, which are both larger and lighter than equivalent steel brakes.
The new DB9 coupe is priced at $183,300, while the open DB9 Volante is available starting at $198,300.
