Aston Martin Celebrates the History of the DB9April 7th, 2014
The Aston Martin DB9 is a stunningly beautiful, high-performance sports car that reflects the balance of power, engineering, performance and style that Aston Martin is known for. The DB9 is a car that’s just as much at home on the streets of Milan as it is on a track.
In this video, we first hear from Aston Martin’s design team on their approach to creating the presence of the DB9. Next, the engineering team discusses the car’s performance characteristics including the incredible 12-cylinder 6.0-liter engine. Of course, the DB9’s heritage reaches back to the classic DB cars of the 1950s and 1960s and the designers discuss how they honor that heritage with the latest model. Finally, the team discusses where Aston Martin hopes to go with the future DB cars. The designs are never intended to be retrospective, but each is, instead, a forward-looking modern car and the team strives to continually improve each new model while carrying forward the heritage of the cars.
