Launched at the 2003 Frankfurt motor show, the exceptional Aston Martin DB9 promises to be one of the most sought after supercars of the decade.

Henrik Fisker's flowing design retains all the good looks of it's predecessor, the highly acclaimed DB7. Weight is kept down by the use of Aluminium and composites for the bodywork, while power from the V12 is up to a healthy 450bhp. This provides the Aston with acceleration to 100mph from standstill in only 10 seconds, then on to a near 190mph maximum. Weight distribution os a perfect 50:50 thanks to the front-mid engined layout with rear mounted sequential transmission. A longer wheelbase frees more interior space to the class leading luxury cabin.

The DB9 also scores highly in the price stakes, being cheaper than all it's GT rivals. But have Aston shot themselves in the foot? With a car this good, who would want to shell out 60k more for the Vanquish?!
