The new DB9 sees the introduction of the new AM11 V12 engine. Retaining the same 6.0-liter capacity as the previous iteration, but employing a new block and cylinder heads, plus double variable valve timing, enlarged throttle bodies and computer machined combustion chambers, this new engine delivers 510 bhp (517 PS) and 620 Nm (457 lb ft) of torque, improvements of 9% and 3.3% respectively. The result is increased responsiveness and more accessible performance, together with reduced emissions.


Tuned to deliver the vast majority of its peak torque below 2000 rpm, the DB9’s new V12 is a majestic power unit with an exceptional spread of performance and a rousing soundtrack to match. With a top speed of 183 mph (295 km/h) and the ability to accelerate from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in just 4.6 seconds, the DB9 is one of the fastest luxury GT cars in the world, yet thanks to its Touchtronic II automatic transmission it is also one of the easiest and most refined to drive – whether you’re storming a mountain pass or cruising through the heart of the city.


Beneath the new DB9’s svelte skin lies the latest evolution of our world-renowned VH architecture. Exceptional strength and structural rigidity are delivered by the central aluminum structure, which is bonded together using aerospace-grade epoxy resin. To this the DB9’s front-mid-mounted V12 engine is attached, which is connected to a rear-mounted transmission via a magnesium torque tube and carbon-fiber propshaft.


A perfect match for the V12 engine’s increased power are the new Carbon Ceramic Matrix (CCM) brakes, which come as standard. Constructed from a silicon-impregnated carbon-fiber compound, the discs dissipate heat more effectively for exceptional fade resistance and durability. They also weigh some 28 pounds less than a conventional cast-iron braking system. This reduction in rotational and undamped mass brings tangible improvements to the DB9’s ride, handling, and steering feel.


The best GT car is one that is malleable to the conditions and your mood. Our new three-stage Adaptive Damping System (ADS) is the key to striking this crucial balance, ensuring the DB9 is willing and able to carouse when opportunity or inclination permit, yet perfectly set up to soothe away the stresses of the day when your destination, and not the journey, is your focus. As such, the DB9 is the perfect choice for the driver who demands the duality of comfort and genuine dynamism.
