Aston Martin DB9 GT: A Lovely Way To Say Good Bye

The Aston Martin DB9 is bowing out. It’s a grand Grand Tourer riding on a grand-old platform, and it’s time to make way for the future of Aston Martin machines. The automaker has created one final version of the car, and ti’s called the DB9 GT. It’s a pumped up version of the standard car, boasting a bit more horsepower, some badges, and the updated center stack that’s also found in the Vanquish.

This, friends, is the proper way to say good bye.

(And it makes us extremely excited for what the DB11 will bring to the table…)

[Disclaimer: Aston Martin gently placed the stainless and sapphire key to the DB9 GT in our hand, and had a tank of gas ready in the car. We turned that fuel into glorious noise and lots of forward motivation.]

  • Wasn’t the current DB9 basically a Virage?

    • Jeff Glucker

      No the Virage was a slightly rebodied DB9, slotted between the DB9 and the DBS

      • Well there we go. I never knew what that car was, or what happened to it.

  • There’s just something different about Astons, the DB9 GT included. There’s “plenty” of options in the $200-220k price range, but the DB9 has the classy allure that nothing else does. I’m hesitant to call it restrained, but it’s elegant…maybe not the fastest, but certainly one of the most desirable.
