Introduction

The Aston Martin DB dates all the way back to 1948, when David Brown bought the British automaker and christened the DB1 with his initials. The model became iconic when a DB5 starred as James Bond's gadget-laden ride in Goldfinger, but disappeared from the the Aston Martin line-up between the early seventies and early nineties.

The DB9 replaced the DB7 in 2005. (Aston Martin skipped the DB8 name to avoid confusion about the V12's cylinder number.) After a few minor facelifts in 2008 and 2011, the DB9 received a more significant overhaul for 2013.

Aston Martin calls the 2013 DB9 an "all-new" model, but the differences between 2012 and 2013 models are rather subtle, essentially incorporating features from the discontinued Virage. The latest DB9 has a more pronounced flip-style spoiler on the trunk lid, and a lower, wider stance.

Under the hood of this sexy sports car lays a 6-liter V12 that cranks out 510 horsepower and 457 pound-feet of torque. A rear-mid-mounted Touchtronic 2 six-speed transmission delivers power to a limited-slip rear end with a 3.46-to-1 drive ratio. This setup delivers a top speed of 183 mph and a 0 to 62 mph sprint of 4.6 seconds.

The DB9 can be ordered as a coupe or a convertible.
