Aston Martin DB9 GT (US-Spec)

The Aston Martin DB9 GT is the most elegant expression of a sports grand tourer, its DNA echoing the iconic DB GT models of its lineage.

Delivering enhanced power and with subtle new touches to highlight its famously seductive styling, the DB9 GT is the ultimate incarnation, the embodiment of faultless form and formidable function, the beating heart of Aston Martin.

Intrinsically desirable yet quietly understated, its beautifully sculptured form is given only subtle accents to hint at the potency of its 540 brake horsepower 6.0-liter V12 engine.

More captivating than ever, the DB9 GT is a potent distillation of DB9’s already intoxicating blend of agile sports car and elegant grand tourer. Designed with passion, crafted with meticulous attention to detail, and true to the legacy of its bloodline, this is the ultimate incarnation of Aston Martin’s iconic sports car.

Featuring luxurious fluted leather seats, evocative GT badging, and a sweeping waterfall fascia with intuitive new AMi II infotainment system, the craft and passion of the DB9 GT speaks to the soul, a whisper to the heart-stopping thrills that await.
