The Most Potent Aston Martin DB9 Has Arrived And Its Called The GT
Aston Martin has just revealed their most potent DB9 yet, the DB9 GT. It has been described as offering ‘the best of what a DB9 can be’ and the GT features an uprated version of the 6.0-litre V12 which not produces 540 horsepower. The peak power is now produced at 6750 rpm and power is sent to the back wheels through the Touchtronic six-speed auto box. Thanks to the increase in power, the 0 to 100 km/h sprint now takes 4.5 seconds (0.1 seconds faster). The GT sits on the standard DB9’s independent double wishbone front- and rear-suspension, which works with three-stage adaptive damping, adjustable through three modes – Normal, Sport and Track. Some new 10-spoke 20-inch Silver Diamond turned wheels are fitted and some other subtle cosmetic changes have been included. A black painted splitter and diffuser, restyled headlights and GT badging on the brake calipers and fuel-filler cap.
