Aston Martin DB9 GT – A Fine Piece Of British Extravaganza
British supercar maker Aston Martin has just revealed the DB9 GT model, and allow me to state the obvious: it’s gorgeous. Powered by a 547 hp 6.0-liter V12 engine, the Aston Martin DB9 GT made its debut at the 2015 Goodwood Festival of Speed. Specifically, powering up this beauty is an all-alloy, quad overhead cam, 48-valve 5,935 cc front mid-mounted V12 engine, good for 547 PS and 620 Nm of torque.
The DB9 GT also comes equipped with a rear mid-mounted Touchtronic II 6-speed gearbox, with an electronic shift-by-wire control system. As a result, the DB9 GT will supposedly do 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 4.5 seconds and reach a breathtaking top speed of 183 mph.
The Aston Martin DB9 GT will also feature an independent double wishbone suspension on all its four corners, as well as a three-stage Adaptive Damping System (ADS) with three settings (Normal, Sport and Track). The equipment list is quite long, but we should point out it includes the AMi II touch-sensitive infotainment system, and USB and Bluetooth connectivity.
All of that seems irrelevant once you take a glimpse of this car’s sleek and incredibly sexy bodywork. It’s difficult to say how much this Aston will cost, but it’s safe to say it will be worth every single penny.
