ADDITIONAL MODEL INFORMATION
2014 Aston Martin DB9

author photo by Doug DeMuro February 2014

Pros: Gorgeous styling; tremendously powerful V12 offers excellent acceleration; luxurious interior; exclusive Aston Martin ownership experience

Cons: Styling is a little too similar to other Aston models; cramped rear seats; 10-year-old chassis starting to show its age

What's New: The 2014 Aston Martin DB9 is unchanged from last year's model.

The Aston Martin DB9 is a 2-door, 4-seat grand tourer that offers more luxury and less sport than the brand's smaller Vantage. Offered as a coupe or a convertible, the DB9 features a standard 6.0-liter V12 that makes 510 horsepower and 457 lb-ft of torque. All DB9 models are rear-wheel-drive, and a 6-speed automatic is the only transmission.

But the DB9 is about more than just what's under the hood. Open the long, heavy door and you'll find a luxurious cabin that can be finished in just about any color, or with any material, that a buyer might want. The DB9 also offers near-infinite color choices on the outside, including any hue that Aston Martin has ever offered. There's also a long list of standard equipment ranging from Bluetooth, heated seats, automatic climate control and navigation to a full leather interior, xenon headlights, and front and rear park assist.

Of course, all that luxury and power doesn't come cheap. The 2014 Aston Martin DB9 starts at around $185,000 with shipping, while the soft-top DB9 Volante comes in at just under $200,000 -- and that's before optional extras. It's a lot of money. But, to many of Aston's buyers, little else will do.
