Aston Martin is on a mission to remain as relevant as they possibly can, which is why they’ve detailed the new DB9 GT model. The DB9 GT is being called the most powerful DB9 yet, and its 5.9-liter V12 engine puts out 540 horsepower.
It was an incredible challenge, make a great design even better. It took an extraordinary collaborative effort to achieve. Nearly 50% of all parts and more than 70% of all body panels are new, but it is as timeless and elegant as ever.
Aston notes that the DB9 GT will hit 62 mph in 4.5 seconds, and will hit a top speed of 183 mph. The DB9 GT also gets some added computing power in the form of Aston’s AMi II touchscreen infotainment system. The car also sports hands-free text messaging, provides detailed vehicle status information and has a customizable background screen. Of course, Aston made hardly any changes to the exterior of the car, given that it already looked great. They did change-up the wheels with 10-spoke alloys, black anodized brake calipers, a black front splitter and rear diffuser, and new headlights and taillights.
The New DB9 is powered by our all-new AM11 engine, the most powerful in DB9’s history. Its 6.0-litre capacity delivers 517 PS, a 0-62 mph time of just 4.6 secs and 620 Nm of torque – a 10% increase on our previous model. AM11 has also been specifically engineered to give an extra 40 Nm of torque between 0 and 4000 rpm, meaning impressive improvements at both high and low engine speeds and additional power at higher revs. Technology integrated from our GT race car programme such as CNC-machined combustion chambers and hollow cam shafts mean AM11 is also as advanced as it is powerful.
The most powerful DB9 engine we’d ever produced and advanced our world-renowned VH architecture even further. The lightweight aluminium core, constructed for maximum rigidity and strength, is joined by state-of-the-art aerospace epoxy resin. DB9 is built for outstanding performance, agility and safety.
