It has been a decade since the Aston Martin DB9 arrived to replace the DB7 . Many tuners including the popular names have spent time with the British icon to squeeze more out of it and make it even more sophisticated and lucrative. The latest tuner to get its hands on the DB9 is Carlex and it made the car look astonishing on the inside — as if the base DB9’s cabin wasn’t astonishing enough. It has dubbed this project the Aston Martin DB9 Vesper.
The ethereal looking Aston Martin DB9 has been designed by Ian Callum and Henrik Fisker with the distinctiveness coming from the trademark front grille and super-sleek aluminum body. The long hood with distinctive creases makes the car lustrous and elegant. The DB9 is powered by AM11 engine, which is a 5.9-liter V-12 with 510 horsepower and 457 foot-pounds of torque. With this engine in tow and mated to a six-speed automatic, the DB9 crests the 60-mph mark in just 4.6 seconds.
