2012 Aston Martin DB9; another super DB9 with latest features
DB9, one of the superb models of Aston Martin, has got its latest and more refined version. 2012 Aston Martin DB9 has more convenience and comfort than the previous year models. This car has a massive engine, a high power delivering one, which is the major competitor of renowned Lamborghini Gallardo. Aston Martin maintains the best handling capacity in this newer version too, while improving on space as well as performance matters. The brand has also introduced some weight reduction strategies, which could help in improving DB9's sprint nature.
2012 DB9 interior is available in many elegant trims and the silver finish makes these trims good in look. The super car seats four, all the seats and interior are of standard leather. One drawback I could notice in 2012 DB9 is the lack of legroom for second row passengers. Also, I am a little concerned about the driver seat positioning, which do not guarantee a wide front view, even though the seat can be arranged multiway. But the interior as well as exterior styling of this car is quite awesome. Among AM's standard equipments, the new navigation system is very effective and user-friendly.
2012 Aston Martin DB9 exterior too is slightly modified, which includes more aluminium inclusions and other fibre materials for weight reduction. The aluminium imposes bright finishes to the car. The traditional Aston Martin grille is maintained as it is, but the rear side is more curvy and wide for the new DB9. This wider rear end gives more cargo space to the car. The doors of 2012 DB9 are designed like a swan's wings with slight inclination for comfort of use. The standard DB9 wheels are of 19 inches and there are more options available from the brand.
2012 Aston Martin DB9 engine is a 6.0 liter one with twelve cylinders arranged in 'V' model. The output this car can deliver is 470 HP, which is not so bad compared to other leading competitors. This engine is fueled with premium gas, which may not be a good news for some. The transmission of 2012 DB9 is a refined six speed system with auto as well as auto-manual options. For 2012, Aston Martin doesn't produce DB9's with manual transmission. This engine along with the driver supportive accessibilities provide best performance and handling to this car.
Aston Martin DB9 is one of the finest super cars in the world, which has tremendous fans waiting for the year by year refinements and newer versions. This year too DB9 is with finest features to compete with its major rivals including Audi R8, Ferrari California, Lamborghini Gallardo and so on. The fuel efficiency of new DB9 is 13 mpg in city and 20 mpg on highway. 2012 Aston Martin DB9 is priced little higher, which quotes $ 189,915 for the base model and the more sophisticated higher-end version at $211,821.
