The Aston Martin DB9 is an example of British-built supercars at their finest. Not only has it become a symbol of how great supercars can be, but it also signalled the start of a revival for Aston Martin. The impressive range of cars that Aston Martin have released over the past few years would not have seen the light of day if it wasn’t for the DB9.
What makes the DB9 enduringly popular since its release has to be its astonishing good looks. It remains one of the classiest looking cars that have ever existed. Despite its age, many people still say that they would rather drive a DB9 than a more modern supercar.
Don’t let its age fool you into thinking that the DB9 is passed it though. It is still luxurious and blisteringly fast, faster even that the Aston Martin V12 Vantage. Despite being one of the superior cars that Aston Martin have made, it is also priced less than the Vanquish, the presumptive flagship car for Aston Martin. It’s no surprise then that when it comes to Aston Martin rental, the DB9 is the highest in demand.
The interior of the DB9 certainly adds to this supercar’s mystique. From the pure crystal starter button to the choice of either a teak, cherrywood, or bamboo interior, it is pretty clear from the start that the inside of a DB9 is a wonderful place to be.
Sadly, there will be no more updates to this flagbearer of British supercars. In 2015, Aston Martin released what it referred to as the ultimate and final version in the DB9 GT. This version has a V12 engine with 540bhp, a redesigned interior, and updated technology. With a more powerful engine, this is the swansong that the DB9 deserves.
If you wanted to relive the good old days with the DB9, then you need to look no further than the DB9 Cabriolet and the DB9 Coupe. These cars truly symbolise the days when the DB9 ruled the roads. Even though it may be being left behind by recent releases by Mercedes and Ferrari, chances are that supercars will never be this classy again.
