Aston Martin DB9

The DB9 is a very significant car for Aston Martin. The DB9 first model Aston Martin to be produced in their Gaydon plant located in Warwickshire, England. The "DB" in DB9 stand for the initials of David Brown, who owned Aston Martin from 1947 until it had financial problems in the 1970s. The DB9 follows a long line of "DB" cars and it sure lives up to its name. It has 469 hp and can go from 0 to 60 in 4.6 seconds. It also can achieve a top speed of nearly 190 mph. That is a lot of car for $170,000 ($190,000 if you want the convertible version know as the DB9 volatile). The DB9 has also entered many professional races and even when racing professionally they still use the same exact engine, but it has many performance upgrades and weight reductions. Do to these modifications the "race version" of the DB9 is now called the DBR9 (two bottom pictures).
