  • New GT model showcases the best of DB9
  • Most powerful DB9 to date

Aston Martin has revealed the DB9 GT. Designed to offer the best of what DB9 can be, the new car delivers high-class grand touring and hand-built excellence.

Claiming the title of the most potent DB9 yet devised, by virtue of its uprated 6.0-litre V12 engine, the DB9 GT makes its public debut in England as part of Aston Martinís presence at this week-endís Goodwood Festival of Speed.

DB9 GT Ė timeless style redefined

Fundamental to the new modelís appeal is its uprated 6.0-litre V12 petrol engine, which generates a maximum 547 PS at 6,750 rpm, and 620 Nm of torque at 5,500 rpm.

The all-alloy, quad overhead cam, 48-valve 5,935 cc front mid-mounted V12 is matched to the rear mid-mounted Touchtronic II six-speed transmission with electronic shift-by-wire control system. It carries the GT from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 4.5 seconds.

The independent double wishbone suspension all round continues to deliver secure handling while the three-stage Adaptive Damping System (ADS) offers distinct †Normal, Sport and Track modes for the broadest possible breadth of dynamic characteristics.

Power is only part of the story, as the new Aston Martin also includes important and far-reaching equipment changes which underline its position as the best DB9 to date.

Most notable among the interior equipment updates is the arrival of the AMi II touch-sensitive Aston Martin infotainment system. While AMi debuted on the range-topping Vanquish at its launch, AMi II offers a revised menu structure which makes using the system more user-friendly.

Building on the system launched in the Vanquish, the DB9 GTís AMi II infotainment package sees key improvements made in a number of areas including text message integration, vehicle status information and extended background themes for greater personalisation.

Offering AM, FM reception, USB ports, Bluetooth audio streaming the system delivers superb connectivity and entertainment simply and easily.

Bespoke luxury as standard

Instantly recognised the world over as an Aston Martin, the core visual characteristics of the DB9 are, of course, retained in the DB9 GT. Refined styling enhancements inside and out, however, signal that this new car remains competitive.

Aside from the subtle GT badges, this new DB9 is identified by black painted splitter and diffuser, revised headlight and tail light treatments and new ten-spoke 20-inch alloy wheels. Black anodised brake callipers and a GT engraving on the aluminium fuel filler cap further distinguish the new model.

Options, for those who wish to further personalise their car, include carbon fibre tail lamp inserts, side strakes, front splitter and rear diffuser; graphite, diamond-turned ten-spoke alloy wheels and alternative brake calliper colours.

Inside, the 2+2 seating configuration remains, however the seats now boast ĎGTí embroidery on the unique fluted leather. An iridium trim pack and Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel (Coupe only) further distinguish the new car.

A broad array of options inside the DB9 GT include various centre console finishes such as Ice Mocha and Copper Cuprum, while other interior options include Duotone leather seats, door inserts and head linings; and a One-77-inspired steering wheel design.

The Aston Martin DB9 GT is now available to order in markets around the world, priced from £140,000 RRP (UK). First deliveries will commence during Q3 2015.
