Aston Martin has officially pulled the wraps off the new DB9 GT, which will be making its public debut at the 2015 Goodwood Festival of Speed, this weekend.
The newest model to be signed by Aston Martin is called the DB9 GT. This is coming with a black painted splitter and diffuser, with black anodized brake calipers, the GT engraving on the aluminum fuel filler cap, the 20-inch ten-spoke alloy wheels, the revised headlights and taillights and several other goodies. Step inside the cabin and you will notice the Alcantara wrapped steering wheel, the different center console finishes and the 2+2 seating configuration.
“Refining the DB9’s already impressive attributes into what we have today in the DB9 GT has been a careful and delicate process. Maintaining the effortlessly refined nature of our core GT sports car, while boosting power and introducing state-of-the-art infotainment systems, has required fine judgments and painstaking engineering. I’m confident the result, in the shape of the DB9 GT, represents the very best of what DB9 can be, and sets the standard for luxury grand tourers in this class”, said the Aston Martin product development director, Ian Minards.
The Aston Martin DB9 GT has received the 3-stage Adaptive Damping System, with the Normal, Sport and Track modes. There is also a double wishbone suspension system and under its hood we can find the upgraded 6.0 liter V12 petrol burner, rated at 547 HP (402 kW) and 620 Nm (458 lb-ft) of torque. This is connected to a Touchtronic II 6-speed transmission, rear mid-mounted, which is allowing the car to reach 100 km/h (62 mph) from a standstill in 4.5s and to go up to 295 km/h (183 mph). Prices start from 187,000 euros in Germany.
