Final Aston Martin DB9s Roll Off The Assembly Line

Aston Martin‘s popular grand tourer, the DB9, has been waved goodbye after almost 13 years since it debuted at the 2003 Frankfurt Motor Show.

Marked as an important event for the British manufacturer in its own backyard, the final nine units were celebrated in a rather modern way, using social media, a few images and a short comment: “Farewell to an icon. The last nine Aston Martin DB9s are now ready for final inspection“, the company tweeted at the end of last week.

Designed by Henrik Fisker and underpinned by the aluminum VH platform, shared with the Rapide and Vanquish, the DB9 already has a true successor, worthy of the DB moniker.

Presented at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, the all-new Aston Martin DB11 is the brand’s first model launched under the “second century” plan and uses a new lighter and stronger aluminum structure underneath its fresh design.

Power comes from an in-house developed 5.2-liter twin-turbo V12 engine, which makes the vehicle the most production DB model in the company’s history, with 608 PS (600 HP) and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) of torque. Paired to a ZF 8-speed automatic transmission, the mill helps the DB11 do the zero to sixty (96 km/h) sprint in 3.9 seconds and reach a top speed of 200 mph (322 km/h).
