The 2013 Aston Martin DB9 has a new V12 engine that is more powerful yet emits slightly fewer emissions. Carbon-ceramic Brembo brakes are now standard. Exterior revisions are most noticeable in the DB9's front fascia and rear trunk lip, while the underlying chassis has been stiffened for better performance.
In the world of luxury performance cars, British automaker Aston Martin neatly fits above brands such as Audi and BMW, and just below exotics like Ferrari and Bentley. The 2013 DB9 holds the middle ground of Aston's lineup, above the sport-oriented Vantage and below the new Vanquish GT. Available as a gorgeous coupe or convertible (Volante), the DB9 blends the performance of a sports car with the comfort of a grand touring vehicle. The 2013 Aston Martin DB9 is the fastest and most powerful yet, endowed with a new V12 that delivers over 500 horsepower. Though now celebrating a century in motoring, Aston Martin's dealer/service network is far smaller than, say, Porsche's. On the other hand, Aston Martins boast intrinsic exclusivity, not to mention a special affiliation with Bond, James Bond.
