For 2013, the venerable DB9, available in Coupe or Volante (convertible) makes the move up market to fill the void left by a discontinued Virage grand tourer. As such, Aston's engineers have upgraded their 5.9-liter V-12 by boosting power and torque outputs to 510-horsepower and 457 pound-feet. When mated to the six-speed automatic gearbox, Aston says the DB9 can get to 60 mph from a standstill in 4.6 seconds; keep it pegged to see its top speed of 183 mph. Standard-issue carbon ceramic Brembo brakes on each corner curb any unwanted speed. Handling prowess comes via the brand's new three-mode (Normal, Sport, and Track) Adaptive Damping System that offers progressively stiffer suspension settings. Visually, the DB9 carries on some of the Virage's cues: LED head and taillights and 20-inch alloys distinguish the updated model. Put a check near the optional Carbon Pack's box and you'll get a front splitter constructed from carbon fiber, not to mention an interior donning plenty the same lightweight composite. Inside you'll also find a standard hand-stitched leather-lined cabin, Organic Electroluminescent Displays, glass switchgear, and navigation system. You'll need at least $185,000 to put a new DB9 in your garage. Who said playing Bond was cheap?
