It’s hard to know how to improve on a classic, especially one with such heritage as the DB5. But Aston Martin proved they were more than up to the task when they designed and produced the DB9 model.
It was also the supercar favourite’s move into producing a more visible, universally appealing model, with between 1400 - 1500 produced every year. In the DB9, there’s all the comfort and luxury you’d expect from an Aston Martin, with a walnut wood and leather finish to the interior, and gadgetry including a Dolby Prologic sound system with Bluetooth and Sat Nav capabilities.
Its largely aluminium exterior - with composite materials making up the bonnet and bumper - means this is also one of the lightest Aston Martin models around, which, as you would expect, means it boasts an impressive top speed of 189 mph, and accelerates from 0 - 60 mph in 5.1 seconds.
