Styles and Major Options

The DB9 comes in two variants; coupé and Volante convertible. each with a 6.0 L 450 bhp (335 kW) V12 engine taken from its sister car the V12 Vanquish. The Vanquish engine has 10 bhp (7 kW) more. In fact, this V12 engine is why Aston Martin did not call the car the DB8, which could suggest that it has only eight cylinders. One report states that Aston Martin believed that this car was such a quantum leap from the Jaguar XJ-S based DB7 that it named it DB9 instead of DB8, which they thought would indicate a gradual evolution. As of 2004 production is expected be up to five thousand units a year which is roughly the same as its rivals, in particular the Ferrari 360 Modena and Porsche 911 Turbo.

This should ensure that Aston Martin will continue into the 21st century. Traditionally being a maker of more exclusive automobiles, CEO, Dr. Ulrich Bez assures Aston loyalists’ that production of the new and smaller V8 Vantage will be larger than previous model build outs, but nonetheless, Aston will still retain a small statistical amount of the high end sport’s car market.

Engine


Based on the engine of the Vanquish, the Aston Martin DB9 runs on a 6.0 liter V12 engine producing 450 bhp(335 kW) and 570 Nm(420 lb ft) of torque. That results in a power to weight ratio of 263 bhp/tonne which is one of the highest figures in its class. The DB9 accelerates from 0-100 km/h(62 mph) in 4.9 seconds on a manual gearbox and it will keep accelerating until it reaches its top speed of 300 km/h(186 mph). The DB9 will also produce 80% of the V12 engine’s torque from 1500 rpm. In result, mid-range performance is astonishing, giving instant power almost regardless of engine speed or gear.

The DB9 comes with two kinds of gearboxes, a 6 speed manual gearbox with twin-plate clutch and a 6 speed Touchtronic 2 fully automatic gearbox with dashboard-mounted buttons to select Park,Reverse,Neutral and Drive modes. A flappy paddle gearbox made from magnesium is also optional sited behind the steering wheel.

Main Competitors

The main competitors of the DB9 are the Porsche 911 Turbo and the Ferrari F430. Both of those vehicles are way more expensive than the DB9 with the Porsche costing 122.900$ and the Ferrari a mind-blowing $173,079 — $201,213. Although both competitors are more powerful and faster around the track but they don’t give you the sense of prestige as much as the DB9 does.
