Aston-Martin DB9 spied during testing
The model to replace the current super-sports car Aston Martin DB9 has been spied during testing in urban England. The British sports was seen somewhat camouflaged, but revealing enough new detail to give a very good idea of what to expect in the exhibitors at the beginning of next year.
As expected, this classic style Aston Martin not far from the familiar look of its predecessors, keeping the same essence and glamour has been offered since the orders of high intelligence as seen in the films of 007.
After 8 years without changing the appearance of this model, the Aston DB9 will be slightly modified your profile, giving priority to the sharp lines against the rounded, a wider front and a set of headlights inspired by the new coupe four-door Rapide and Virage.
What will find under the hood of the new car remains a mystery, but you may see a propeller based (if not the same) on the motor Ford V12 5.9 liters for 470 horsepower and 600 Nm of torque engine, shared with the Rapide and the Virage.
In order to see this new brand V12 in the new generation of DB9 is likely to be the last time you can enjoy this type of configuration because modern technology offers similar power consumption considerably lower (and greener) on smaller engines and nature as hybrids and alternative power accumulated by regenerative braking.
