Aston Martin

At Auto Trader Towers we receive many calls from readers wondering what has happened to Aston Martin?

It seems as though Aston Martin are changing dealers away from Al Habtoor (servicing is still of fered). Al Ain Class Cars (see their ad on page ..... of Auto Trader) do of fer Aston Martins for sale, new and used. Their new showroom, located on Sheikh Zayed Road, Dubai, displays an incredible range of Aston Martins, from the regular to the limited editions.

Aston Martin are still hard at work at their factory in England. Appearing hot on the heels of the all-new Vanquish Super GT, the introduction of 13 Model Year DB9 gives the British luxury sports car maker the perfect opportunity to further enrich the appeal of its mainstay in the GT sector, with significant developments af fecting styling inside and out, plus key changes under the new DB9’s classically beautiful ‘skin’.

The styling changes see DB9 adopt an even more lithe, fluid and pure form reminiscent of the outgoing Aston Martin Virage which ceases production with immediate ef fect. Taking a classic Aston Martin GT silhouette as its base, the new DB9 adds a more pronounced rear boot ‘flip’ to further enhance the aerodynamic performance of the car.

Available from launch in either Coupe or Volante body styles, DB9 13MY clearly has a strong breadth of appeal.

This DB9 sees the introduction of the new generation AM11 V12 engine.

The new V12 takes some of the ‘Gen4’ VH architecture hardware technology developed for Aston Martin’s forthcoming all-new super GT, the Vanquish, but has been tuned to suit the character of DB9.

The result is an engine with ef fortless torque of up to 620 Nm and peak power of 517 PS – both significantly improved versus the outgoing unit.
