British drivers have named the Aston Martin DB9 as their favourite car of the last twenty five years. One in ten voted for the Aston Martin DB9 making it the clear favourite ahead of the second placed VW Golf GTI.
The Aston Martin DB9 is priced at £113,950 as a coupe (or £122,950 as a convertible); it’s not instantly apparent who the Aston Martin DB9’s key rivals are. Does it go head to head with outright sports models like the Porsche 911 Turbo and Lamborghini Gallardo or is it cast more in the mould of a high speed super-smoothie like the Bentley Continental GT or Mercedes CL65 AMG? In truth it leans towards the more sporting end of the spectrum, capable of 0 to 60mph in just 4.8 seconds and on to a top speed of 186mph.
The interior of the Aston Martin DB9 has beautifully finished aluminium dials, lustrous leather and quality wood cappings. It is a fantastic finish in both traditional and modern materials, as well as the aluminium and leather there is a fantastic glass starter button on the centre console. A satellite navigation system is secreted in a pop up dash top panel and there is a 1300 watt Linn stereo system to keep you entertained.
