2013 Aston Martin DB9 | Review, Price, Interior, Exterior, Engine. – Welcome to Neocarsuv.Com, we will provide the latest information about the Aston Martin DB9. 2013 Aston Martin DB9 is one brand new car from Aston Martin that was released in 2013. We will also review about the price, interior, exterior and engine of the 2013 Aston Martin DB9.
Available from launch in either Coupe or Volante body styles, 2013 Aston Martin DB9 clearly has a strong breadth of appeal. Bi-xenon headlamps provide the car with a clear focus, while subtle feature lines run along and underneath the headlamps, visually widening the car. A Bentley Continental GT will always be a fun drive, but it no longer immediately transfers class and elegance onto the driver. An Aston Martin DB9 always makes us think someone in a finely tailored Savile Row suit is about to emerge from of the driver’s seat.
The latest iteration is of the DB9 doesn’t change much, aesthetically, but they’ve managed to take DB9’s sumptuous 5.9 liter V12 up to 510 horsepower and 457 lb-ft of torque. There are cars with more power, but few cars that are more visibly powerful. To understand the difference between an automaker like Aston Martin and an automaker like Ford, just read their press releases. The grille on the new Ford Escape is connected via a “beveled” surface. The DB9’s new grille?… It has five horizontal vanes that were “chamfered” to create a an aerofoil like profile.
Weighing in at 3,935 lbs, the 2013 DB9 features a 50/50 weight distribution and will not come with a manual transmission. Standard on the vehicle will be bi xenon headlights, Carbon Ceramic Matrix rotors, Brembo calipers, and the British automaker’s Adaptive Damping System (ADS). Optional amenities include a carbon fiber front splitter (part of the Carbon Pack), a variety of 20 inch wheels, black Alcantara steering wheel, Bang & Olufsen BeoSound audio system, personalized sill plaques, DB9 or Aston Martin logos embroidered on the headrests, and more.
2013 Aston Martin DB9 Price :
Deliveries of the 2013 Aston Martin DB9 will begin in November, with the model priced starting at $185,400. The 2013 DB9 will arrive in U.S. showrooms in November in Coupe or Volante body styles. The top of the line 2013 Aston Martin DB9 Volante starts at $202,515, including shipping and gas guzzler tax.
Clarke said the price cut was not designed to better position the new DB9 against such rivals as the Lamborghini Gallardo, but to underscore “a very clear step from the DB9 to the Vanquish.” The 2014 Aston Martin Vanquish will be priced from $282,110, including a $2,115 destination charge and a $2,600 gas guzzler tax, Clarke said. The 2012 Lamborghini Gallardo starts at $184,895, including a $2,995 destination charge. The 2012 Ferrari California, another rival of the DB9, starts at $194,000, including a $2,000 destination charge. The base 2012 Aston Martin DB9 Coupe starts at $192,030, including shipping.
2013 Aston Martin DB9 Interior :
The styling changes on the DB9 include a more pronounced trunk “flip” that enhances the aerodynamic performance of the car, bi xenon headlights and an optional carbon fiber front splitter as part of an exterior Carbon Pack. The Carbon Pack also includes a rear diffuser, carbon fiber mirror arms and caps and dark tailpipes with a graphitic finish. The car is finished with 20 inch five spoke cast alloy silver painted wheels.
The arrival of the 2013 Aston Martin DB9 also marks a “streamlining” of Aston’s GT car range, as the Virage is no more the DB9 now sits alone just under the Vanquish “super GT,” and just above the Vantage sports car. The revised powerplant sees an increase of power from the former DB9?s 470 hp and 443 lb-ft of torque figures, and is complemented by new styling, engineering, and even more luxury than before. Clearly, the styling update borrows from the now defunct Virage model, and the 2013 DB9 model will be available in coupe or convertible (Volante) form.
2013 Aston Martin DB9 Exterior :
The 2013 DB9 integrates styling elements of the Virage, including a strip of LED daytime running lights in the HID headlights. A carbon fiber front splitter is available through the exterior Carbon Pack. The opening in the front valance is enlarged to direct air to the standard carbon ceramic brakes. Those brakes, supplied by Brembo, include cross-drilled carbon ceramic matrix discs, which Aston Martin says reduces weight by 27.5 pounds compared to the previous DB9’s cast iron setup.
Styling changes for the 2013 DB9 include a more pronounced integrated rear trunklid spoiler, and other, more subtle tweaks to the lines elsewhere, intended to borrow some of the Virage’s character. The grille is inspired by the One-77, with five horizontal vanes. The hood gets zinc vents, and LED side repeaters are integrated into the side strakes. Both coupe and Volante (convertible) versions are available from launch.
2013 Aston Martin DB9 Engine :
The new 2013 Aston Martin DB9 receives a version of the brand’s 5.9 liter V-12 tuned to 510 hp and 457 lb-ft of torque, increases of 40 hp and 14 lb-ft over the previous model. Those numbers are achieved thanks to a revised engine block and head design, along with the addition of dual variable valve timing, larger throttle bodies, higher rated fuel pump, improved intake manifold, and machined combustion chambers. Aston Martin estimates the 0-60 mph time at 4.6 seconds with a 183 mph top speed. Considering we clocked a 2012 Aston Martin Virage with the same six-speed automatic from 0-60 mph at 4.2 seconds, the DB9 estimate is probably conservative.
The new generation 6.0 liter V12 engine in the 2013 DB9 churns out 510 horsepower, a 40 hp increase over the 2012 DB9. The engine is linked to a six speed automatic transmission. The 2013 DB9 accelerates from zero to 62 mph in 4.6 seconds and has a top speed of 183 mph. Fuel economy numbers were not announced. The outgoing 2012 DB9 with an automatic transmission returns 13 mpg in city driving and 20 mpg on the highway, according to the EPA.
