Exotic Car Of The Week - 007
The number 007 is fitting when it comes to our next exotic car of the week. Given the history of Aston Martin and its affiliation with the original 007 (James Bond). The Aston Martin DB9 plays a special role in modern-day life. It's been more than 50 years since the name Aston Martin became a household name and symbol for sophistication and style - in part due to its prominent appearance in the 1964 James Bond film 'Goldfinger'. Since the 1st film, Aston Martin has appeared in 12 more James Bond films, with more set to feature in the latest 'No time to die' that was delayed because of the Covid-19 outbreak. Needless to say - the British made luxury car is the ultimate must-have item for car lovers of all ages. Timeless style, precision, and sophistication are what the brand represents, and the Aston Martin DB9 Convertible shows us exactly why the manufacturer is revered around the world.
The Aston Martin DB9 convertible is one of the most iconic and widely-popular automotive creations in the luxury automotive world. The DB9 was a definitive upgrade to its old model – the DB7. After the launch of the first version of Aston Martin DB9 in 2003, the car has received many design and performance upgrades to date. Today, the Aston Martin DB9 Cabriolet offers an impressive and intellectually-crafted bodyshell which is 25% lighter in weight than the former DB7. All thanks to the aluminum used in the roof, rear wings, bonnet, and the composite car construction of the boot lid and front wings, the Aston Martin DB9 is all about offering dynamic power, high speeds, and greater torsional rigidity. If you're looking for a great all-round supercar, the Aston Martin DB9 Cabrio is the perfect vehicle for you.
Good news for all the tall drivers and passengers out there! The Aston Martin DB9 convertible offers plenty of legroom and headroom so you do not have to struggle to keep your limbs together while driving the car. From the gorgeous dials and functional central console, the car offers a great assortment of technological upgrades.
