DB9 GT to debut at Goodwood Festival of Speed
The Aston Martin DB9 GT has been revealed and will make its official debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed this week.
Described as the “most compelling production DB” to date, the vehicle is fitted with a black painted splitter and diffuser, revised headlights and taillights as well as new ten-spoke 20-inch alloy wheels.
The DB9 GT is also fitted with black anodized brake calipers and a GT engraving on the aluminum fuel filler cap to further distinguish the vehicle from the standard model.
Inside, the DB9 GT features a 2+2 seating configuration, an Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel and a number of center console finishes such as 'Ice Mocha' and 'Copper Cuprum.' In addition, the cabin has orange accent as well as Aston Martin's AMi II infotainment system.
The DB9 GT is powered by an upgraded 6.0-liter V12 gasoline engine that delivers 547 PS and 620 Nm of torque. To put things in perspective, the standard DB9 generates an output of 517 PS. The 6.0-liter engine is mated to a rear mid-mounted 'Touchtronic' II six-speed transmission with electronic shift-by-wire control system. Aston Martin claims that the DB9 GT could go from zero to 100 km/h in 4.5 seconds before hitting a top speed of 295 km/h.
