@dhruv No, that was the successor to the DBS
Jon Ashley Sep 19, 2012
no matter what, this thing is beautiful, and you might call it a bargain if you compare it to the vanquish.
John Serely Sep 19, 2012
@redge I just read your 3rd to last comment, which was directed towards me, and all you did was repeat what I SAID! Haha!
John Serely Sep 19, 2012
I hope you know that you don't make any sense at all. By the way, if you actually read my comments, you would see that I agree with you about RR. And I also said I DID know Aston raced, so I'm not sure what your problem is...
John Serely Sep 19, 2012
@redge WTF are you talking about? Just because they race against each other, doesn't mean the street-legal cars compete! I don't know a simpler way to put it to you: Aston makes GTs, Lambo doesn't. Yet don't compete.
Austin Bryant Sep 19, 2012
Oh look, a Virage.
Zachary Maurer Sep 19, 2012
Ok that's cool, at least I don't have one
Redge Diakité Sep 19, 2012
@Zachary If I'm an a$$hole you're a cunt hole ;)
Zachary Maurer Sep 19, 2012
Company can get their cars into racing, these are real world cars, and the corvettes trunk is wider, but not bigger, but you really come out to NA an a$$ hole redge
Zachary Maurer Sep 19, 2012
@redge, ok your talking about race cars, almost any com
Luke Purdy Sep 19, 2012
The majority of people here complaining about the styling are forgetting that it's only just an update to the db9. They are saving the different styling for the successor of this car.
Redge Diakité Sep 19, 2012
Compete in world races as I know. (Damn I love talking about cars with others and go into "fights" :D)
Redge Diakité Sep 19, 2012
@Oh John I think you forgot one car whose name is Aston DBR9 OH it was against who in the GT1 class Oh Corvette Oh Ferrari Oh Maserati ;) there's also the Vantage V8 who runs in the GT2 GT3 and GT4 ;). IMO you can't compare Astons and RR RR didn't..
Redge Diakité Sep 19, 2012
And the trunk isn't as wide as the one Corvettes got. It's like people don't remember that Aston was made to build beautiful cars with performance and for the racing Damn
John Serely Sep 19, 2012
And actually it competes with 1 Bentley, the continental gt, which is a "4 seat" (not that usefull) GT car around the same price
John Serely Sep 19, 2012
Your right, but they don't compete with lambo or Ferrari either, which is what you said.
Redge Diakité Sep 19, 2012
It's participation in world races Aston is a sportscar brand and a luxury brand too but doesn't compete with Rolls Royce because they aren't cars for 4 people they don't even have space in the back (that's what RR and Bentley are bought for)..
John Serely Sep 19, 2012
And because you seem to need an example, I'll give you one: Aston competes in the GT3 class against cars such as the Chevy Camaro and BMW Z4, along with others. So according to your logic, Aston competes with a Camaro and Z4? No! Not even close lol.
Redge Diakité Sep 19, 2012
@Zachary first don't even try to treat me I was polite and just sayed what you were talking about is bizarre not you and your toughts are completely messed up I didn't even talks about what's under the hood I said that with it's history ...
John Serely Sep 19, 2012
And just because it competes in races with other brands, doesn't mean they compete in road cars lol.
John Serely Sep 19, 2012
@redge in no way does this compete with any lamborghini! It is a GT car. You obviously don't know what a GT is, so look it up. It's competitors or the Bentley Conti GT, Ferrari Cali, Merc CL, and kind of the SLS AMG!
Andrew Semak Sep 19, 2012
I want that so bad. It's just sexy
Zachary Maurer Sep 19, 2012
And I think your a little bazaar for being a compleat a$$ when I'm trying to state an opinion, if u think I was trashing you then u can come at me all you want
Zachary Maurer Sep 19, 2012
Says it compeats because it has a v12 and 510 bhp, you need to look at what it's soul purpose is, an Aston is not a track car or a speed Demond, it's a luxury gt car that is relatively cheap compared to some competitors, u also have to look a prices
Zachary Maurer Sep 19, 2012
@redge, I'm not saying the vette isn't, I'm just saying that this is a gt car, and not anything different, none of the cars u mentioned have a reasonable trunk, rear seats or extreme luxury that RR or Aston have, you just can't look at a car an...
Roggina Froggina Sep 19, 2012
I think this is just a virage? Correct me if im wrong, but this looks identical. Are there any differences you can spot? I can't...
Matthew Tai Sep 19, 2012
I like it, but I want to see something out of the box sort of like the one-77
Redge Diakité Sep 19, 2012
Ferrari because it's a sportscar. It goes to competition with Ferrari Corvette Porsche in races so for me it's a sportscar brand and not only a luxury brand and it doesn't compete with RR or Bentley (bizarre thoughts you can see here)
Redge Diakité Sep 19, 2012
@Zachary But you are kidding???? So for you a Corvette Z06 isn't a rival of a Lamborghini or Ferrari because it's not mid-engined? So it means a Ferrari F12 isn't The Aventador Rival? And I keep saying that Aston Martin is the rival of Lamborghini...
Zachary Maurer Sep 19, 2012
Rolls and to some extent Maserati, but not Ferrari and Lamborghini
Zachary Maurer Sep 19, 2012
@redge, how are they competing with lambos and ferraris??? Astons are gt cars, lambos and ferraris are mostly all mid engine except with the ff and California, and the california is the only one in its price range, astons competition is Bentley...
Nick Schnee Sep 19, 2012
They are Gran Touring cars, not supercars. And for being a GT they are great in both performance and looks.
Matthew Mckernan Sep 19, 2012
Yes, this it looks almost exactly the same as the Virage and yes the designers seem kinda lazy, but who cares when it just looks this good!
Nick Benz Sep 19, 2012
Erich youre kidding right? If youre gonna call a vantage the best aston, at least say the V12 model. Personally id go with a DBS
Tim Preisinger Sep 19, 2012
I agree with Matt (for once..). I think this looks fantastic, but I would love to see AM try some different stuff
Abraham Mendoza Sep 19, 2012
I don't know what to think, yeah it looks like the Virage, but soon all Astons will look like this. I don't know.
Matt Piccolo Sep 19, 2012
Not that I don't think this looks good, cuz it does! I agree, aston martins designers seem to b a bit lazy lately! I wanna see something new (I'm not saying I don't like their cars cuz I DO!) but it would b cool to see them try something new
Redge Diakité Sep 19, 2012
@Tony So it means for you that Astons are just heavy luxury cars and not sportscar? ;) and Dustin Yes they do compete with Lamborghini and Ferrari ;)
Redge Diakité Sep 19, 2012
The main problem is that Aston Martin doesn't have a lot of money so they can't really fight with Lamborghini Ferrari or Porsche
Mike Ralsh Sep 19, 2012
I don't think it has much to do with laziness, but rather the low number of complaints they get on the design. I mean, it looks great anyway.
Jon Wheel Sep 19, 2012
So they get rid of the Virage, and restyle the DB9 to look just like it...not sure I understand
Mark Suvorov Sep 19, 2012
Virage Very clever
Carlos Gallego Rodriguez Sep 19, 2012
Okei, it's official, the Aston Martin designers are lazier than porsche designers, or anybody in the world
Description: For the 2013 DB9, Aston has revised its long-serving 6.0-liter V12 with new cylinder heads, intake manifold, throttle bodies and fuel pump. The result is an increase in output from 470 horsepower to 5...

More power is always a good thing!
Sebastian Grey Sep 21, 2012
Ok that line at the bottom of the door is awesome.
Wyatt Gordon Sep 20, 2012
that looks beautiful! I'd still rather have the new Vanquish, but this is still a great looking car! good job Aston!
Thibault Leroy Sep 19, 2012
Im pretty sure the clear tail lights are an option but i could be wrong
Ryan Heetderks Sep 19, 2012
Thank god they kept the clear tail lights.
Wyatt Gordon Sep 20, 2012
looks great! just don't crash my car, mmkay babe?
David Eslava Sep 19, 2012
Yes, RHD and an excellent sexist joke as well
boldcars Sep 19, 2012
right hand drive
David Pires-Ihsaan Sep 19, 2012
Was that a female driver joke?
Andrew Latchuk Sep 19, 2012
Is it me or did they forget to photshop the driver in this moving car?
Bennie Andthe Jets Sep 19, 2012
Looks so long in this shot
Clay Williams Sep 19, 2012
What a gorgeous car
Paul Lissona Sep 19, 2012
This color combination looks so good here.
David Mzolo Oct 02, 2012

Abraham Mendoza Sep 19, 2012
I like that. A lot.
Tyler Cook Sep 19, 2012
I like this rear end better than the new one on the vanquish
Esam Mohammad Sep 19, 2012
This is pure art !!
Mark Suvorov Sep 19, 2012
Before it was written "virage" lol Of course very beautiful car
Wyatt Gordon Sep 20, 2012
I need a proper manual. I'm sick of all this F1-poser paddle shit. great otherwise though!
Jordan Jackson Sep 19, 2012
@alex, the buttons underneath the two center air vents are the gear selectors, but I'm pretty sure I can see the outer edge of a paddle from behind the wheel
Ryan Spencer Sep 19, 2012
@alex most astons have the paddle-shift option like this one. The DBS and V12 Vantage are the only ones I've seen with a proper gear box.
Abraham Mendoza Sep 19, 2012
Damn that looks lovely.
Alex Bowman Sep 19, 2012
wheres the shifter? or is it paddles
Buddy Robinson Sep 19, 2012
Astons gotta have some of the best interiors period.
Paul Lissona Sep 19, 2012
Wow this interior looks better than a car costing $500,000.
Wyatt Gordon Sep 20, 2012
look at the craftsmanship!
