Despite its hefty price tag, most of us can still appreciate the design and motoring genius of those at Aston Martin. The new Aston Martin DB9 GT is not the most bespoke-looking of Aston Martins, the visual changes are subtle, with the most obvious identifier being the GT badge at the rear.
Motoring Research reports:
“Aston Martin has further uprated the 6.0-litre V12 engine in the DB9 GT: it now produces 547hp, combined with 457lb ft (620Nm) of torque. There’s never been a road-going DB9 as powerful as this.
It means the DB9 GT can accelerate from 0-62mph (0-100km/h) in 4.5 seconds, and will go on to a top speed of 183mph (295km/h).
Aston’s kept the 2+2 seating layout for the DB9 GT, rather than reverting to a two-seater setup. It has stitched in ‘GT’ logos into the Glen Coe fluted leather front seats for a collectable detail.
A neat iridium trim pack marks out the DB9 GT’s dash, and the coupe gets an Alcantara steering wheel.
Aston also offers a bespoke range of options just for the DB9 GT, such as Ice Mocha or Copper Cuprum centre console finishes, duotone leather seats and a One-77-style steering wheel. All making an already-unique car even more of a one-off…”
The key changes with this new model are the crisper, tighter front end, bigger alloys, more tightly sculptured side sills and a bigger aero tail at the rear. Since the 12 years of the Aston Martin DB9, the design has really evolved, making this 2016 model something to admire.
