When Aston Martin unveiled the One-77 supercar, everyone was amazed. After all, it’s not every day you see a $1.4 million supercar with such a dynamic design come from the British company. The amazement wasn’t short-lived either as all 77 units of the supercar sold out as quickly as they were unveiled. With such a stupendous response, and such a quick sellout, Aston Martin has decided to apply the same treatment for the future DB9.

So, in 2013 we will see a new generation DB9 (probably carrying the DB10 nomenclature) with styling cues borrowed from the limited-edition One-77 coupe. We are expecting Aston to stick with the aluminum spaceframe for another generation before Aston jumps on the carbon fiber wagon.

The recently redesigned DB9 is powered by a 6.0-liter V12 engine delivering an unchanged 470bhp and 442lb ft of torque and mated to a choice of six-speed ‘Touchtronic’ paddle-shift automatic or six-speed H-pattern manual transmission. The sprint from 0 to 60 mph is made in just 4.6 seconds and top speed goes up to 190 mph.

Haha, I think Aston Martin will really stick to spaceframe engineering but I gues thye sometimes use carbon fiber.
