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.
There are few cars like the Aston Martin DB9 coupes and convertibles, and arguably none more beautiful. More prestigious than luxury brands like Audi or BMW, and with a cachet nearly as impressive as Ferrari and Bentley, Aston Martin's cars are coveted. The DB9 is actually the middle child of AM's three coupes, slotting between the less expensive Aston Martin Vantage and the new Vanquish. But the DB9 is a grand tourer rather than a pure sports car, with striking design and a 6.0-liter V12 engine making more than 500 horsepower. Starting just below $200,000, it doesn't come cheap, but that price and the sparse dealer network give Aston Martin DB9 owners a level of exclusivity matched by few, and surpassed by even fewer.
