The 4-seat Aston Martin DB9 is the ultimate luxury GT, both in coupe and convertible Volante form. Underlying its many attributes is a chassis in the coupe that delivers 20 percent more stiffness than in previous years, while the Volante is 30 percent stiffer. The car is also incredibly balanced, with weight distribution of 51/49 percent front to rear. The revised independent suspension features 3-stage adaptive damping, with Normal, Sport and Track modes providing corresponding levels of performance depending upon driver preference and driving conditions. Stopping power comes courtesy of ventilated Carbon Ceramic Matrix brakes, which offer incredible stopping power. The DB9 rides on 20-inch five-spoke alloy wheels, with Z-rated Pirelli tires providing the grip.
