Aston Martin unveiled the current generation Aston Martin DB9 at the Geneva Motor Show in 2008 in both Coupe and Volante variants. The Coupe was originally designed to be able to transform into an open top version and the work allotted for this design was proven successful in the Volante.
The DB9 is powered by a revised version of Aston Martin’s 6.0 Liter V12 engine to deliver a maximum output of 470 HP and 443 lb-ft of torque mated to a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic transmission. This is good for a 0 to 60 MPH time of 4.6 seconds and a top speed of 190 MPH.

The MANSORY front spoiler displace the series front totally and will give the car a striking snappy optical characteristic. An elegant design symbiosis from an integrated daytime running light, also available as fog lights, with below air intakes so on the adaptive 5-line grille element, similar to the new 6-line lightweight main radiator grille, afford by the way a better air supply for the engine and so on for the new brake system made by BREMBO.
