The first photos of Aston Martin’s DB9 appeared from Nürburgring testing. DB9 was tested on it’s new modular platform of a new generation of the sports cars. Aston Martin confirmed the manufacturing of this kind of platform a year ago, after receiving funds from investors.
Rumors are that Aston Martin DB9’s new platform is manufactured to accommodate v8 engine and electric systems from Mercedes AMG. V8 also Mercedes AMG 4.0-litre engine will provide around 500 horsepower.
New DB9 will also have a nine-speed automatic transmission. The older model got six-speed ZF unit.
It is a weak chance that DB9 is the final name of this beauty. The manufacturers design director Marek Reichman admitted: “It’ll definitely be a DB, but what number will follow that is yet to be decided.” Moreover, we know that Aston Martin DB10 will appear in new James Bond movie. So we expect car to be named the DB11.
Still there is not that much information leaked.“There’ll be a little more revolution in it,” Reichman tells: “It will be unmistakably an Aston and a DB at that, but it will look fresh and modern.”
Newie is going to see the world and enter the market in 2016.
