PostHeaderIcon Vengeance Volante by Kahn Keeps the Iconic Aston Martin DB9 Alive

Established in 1998, British tuner Kahn Design has made a name for itself by modifying Land Rover vehicles almost exclusively. However, the firm also modified various other models in recent years, including Jeep, Porsche, and even Maybach. Kahn is also part of the Ant-Kahn project, which builds sports cars inspired by designs from the 1960s. More recently, the British tuner launched its first official Aston Martin-based project, the Vengeance WB12. Essentially a widebody version of the DB9. At the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, Kahn unveiled the Volante variant.

As the name suggests – assuming you’re familiar with Aston Martin’s naming strategy – Volante stands for the convertible. So we’re basically looking at a chopped off Vengeance, but that’s not to say that the Volante isn’t on the spectacular side. Significantly wider than the standard DB9, it also boasts radical modifications front and rear. The front fascia has a completely new bumper with a wider grille and reshaped side intakes, while the rear sports a carbon-fiber diffuser, a trunk lid spoiler, and round taillights inspired by vintage sports cars from the 1960s. On top of that, it’s wrapped in an attractive light blue color complemented by multi-spoke, black wheels.

Inside, there’s handcrafted black leather on all seats and custom door panels. The red stripes on the center console and stack add o splash of color to the black cabin, while the steering wheel is wrapped entirely in Alcantara.

Much like the coupe, the Volante comes with the DB9’s standard drivetrain, meaning the car gets its juice from a 6.0-liter V-12 engine rated at 503 horsepower and 457 pound-feet of torque. In standard guise, the DB9 needs around 4.5 seconds to hit 60 mph from a standing start, to go with a top speed of 183 mph. There’s no word on pricing, but expect to pay around 50 percent above the DB9 Volante. Production will be limited to just a few units, likely no more than 20.

PostHeaderIcon Aston Martin Ends Production Of The DB9

Aston Martin is currently in the middle of a massive lineup refresh that already brought us the 2011 Aston Martin DB11 and will soon introduce successors for both the Vantage and the Vanquish, as well as the company’s first crossover vehicle. Unfortunately, for gearheads like us, every reorganization process also means that iconic models must be discontinued to make way for brand-new products. With the DB11 on its way to dealerships, Aston Martin is bidding farewell to the DB9.

Although this is a sign of progress and brings a faster and more technologically advanced vehicle to the streets, the discontinuation of the DB9 is also a sad event, putting an end to one of the most important Aston Martins ever built.

Introduced in 2003 as a replacement for the DB7, which was developed under Ford ownership and based on a Jaguar platform that was nearly two decades old, the DB9 was the company’s first all-new vehicle in years. While the drivetrain wasn’t exactly new, the previous dated platform was replaced with the aluminum Vertical Horizontal architecture, while the exterior was thoroughly redesigned by Ian Callum and Henrik Fisker. The DB9 was gorgeous to look at and its styling became the norm for future products.

What’s more, due to the fact that Ford sold Aston Martin in 2006 and the Brits had to make without proper financing, the DB9 became the base for every model that followed, including the DBS, Vanquish, Vantage, and the four-door Rapide (many of which are still in production as of 2016).

After 13 years in production, the DB9 was sent off to the history books on July 22, when the “Last of 9” Edition, obviously limited to nine examples, rolled off the assembly line.

PostHeaderIcon Kahn Vengeance Officially Unveiled at GMS

Kahn Vengeance-official-0

Following a long teasing campaign, British tuner and coachbuilder Kahn Design finally unveiled their Aston Martin DB9-based super GT at the Geneva Motor Show. Called Kahn Vengeance, the sinister-looking car is a retro take on the design of the DB9 with some Kahn flavor sprinkled on the top.

When we say retro, we mean Aston Martin designs of the 1980s and 90s. The inspiration is evident all over the body of Kahn Vengeance, especially around the back and those Zagato-like taillights. The re-body treatment also gives the car a front bumper and wide spaced grille for a more aggressive look, plus widened front wings, revised roof lines, window frames, and aero parts.

While the interior of the Kahn Vengeance remains pretty much stock DB9 in design, the tuner has made sure you get a bespoke upholstery and trim package, as well as sports seat and suede steering wheel. The Vengeance also gets a set of highly exclusive multi spoke rims inspired by the classic roulette wheels. They feature a two-tone finish with diamond cut outer section and body color central part.

Kahn Design has not released the technical details of the Vengeance yet, but chances are the engine is the same 6.0 liter V12 as in the standard Aston DB9.

PostHeaderIcon Aston Martin WB12 Vengeance By Kahn Design

Ever since Kahn Design teased the Aston Martin DB9-based WB12 Vengeance in May 2015, updates on the car have been few and far in between. Actually, there hasn’t been so much as a peep about the project, at least until recently when the British tuner announced that the car would make its long-awaited debut at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show.

The announcement is the latest indication that Kahn Design is serious about its attempt to become a full-fledged coach builder after establishing a reputation as one of the best Land Rover tuners in the world. It’s worth noting that it was just last year at the same event that Kahn unveiled the Land Rover Defender-based 105 Longnose and the 110 WB 6×6 Flying Huntsman SUV. For an encore, the company is setting the stage for the WB12 Vengeance’s debut, and while the full swath of details have yet to be revealed, Kahn has provided a few specifics about the car, including the meaning behind its name. For instance, the WB stands for wide body while the 12 understandably points to the car’s 6.0-liter V-12 engine.

Kahn also indicated that the inspiration behind the WB12 Vengeance is the first-generation Vanquish, the Ian Callum-penned model that launched Aston Martin into the new millennium. Apparently, at least according to Kahn, Aston Martin hasn’t come close to replicating the kind of design impact the original Vanquish had when it burst into the scene back in 2001.

So, he’s taking matters into his own hands with the WB12 Vengeance. The question now is this: will the WB12 Vengeance live up to expectations? The answer to that will be determined at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show.

PostHeaderIcon Aston Martin DB9 on Candy Red Forgiatos

Aston Martin DB9 Forgiato-0

Masters of extravagance at Forgiato Wheels have done it again, this time fitting a black Aston Martin DB9 with a set of super shiny candy red wheels. This car apparently belongs to a striving Mexican actor, so it kind of makes sense why he would go this color wheels.

Actors who are trying to make it in the business need to be in the public’s eye at all times, no matter how. That is why they leak their sex tapes and nude photos. Fortunately for everybody, Sergio Goyri, the owner of this car, is not that desperate yet. So he was content with having his black Aston DB9 made a bit more conspicuous.

Forgiato Wheels has supplied this Aston Martin DB9 with a set of Maglia wheels from the Monoleggera or monoblock series. The size is pretty normal at 20-inch all around, but the candy red finish is what gives this set its edge. Forgiato says the finish is of such high quality, it can endure massive speed, brake dust, grime, and pretty much any punishment you can through at it.

We do not like red wheel simply because they are ostentatious and uncool. But the DB9 is so damn pretty, not even those ghastly wheels can rob it of its innate sexiness. We hate to admit this, but the end result actually looks pretty good!

EON Productions, the producers of the James Bond film franchise, has just announced that the 24th installment of the movie will be launched as “Spectre.” That’s great news if you’re a fan of the franchise, but there’s even bigger news coming from Aston Martin, the automaker providing agent 007 with the finest sports cars since 1964. In case you haven’t guessed it yet, the Brits have developed yet another Bondmobile, this time in the form of a DB10. Yep, a brand-new vehicle that’s not available in the company’s current lineup. Aston says its a “bespoke sports car,” but it sounds like a concept to me; one that previews the next-generation DB9.

Now that’s a very good reason to get excited about the upcoming “Spectre” movie.

Details are still under wraps as of December 2014, but the DB10 concept looks downright aggressive. It is, in fact, the most aggressive-looking Aston Martin I’ve seen in recent years, and if this is what the company’s future looks like, we’re in for a gorgeous replacement to the DB9. Aston Martin plans to build 10 examples of this bespoke sports car, but don’t hold your breath for a chance to buy one.

Updated 10/14/2015: On October 11, Aston Martin hold a special club meeting called “Avenue De La Grande Armee” in Paris, France. One of our friends was in there, and next to a couple of classic Aston Martin cars he also got the chance to take a very close look at James Bond’s latest DB10 supercar. Even more, he also took some pictures of the interior.

Aston Martin has been relying on its VH (Vertical/Horizontal) platform since 2001, using it in all of its vehicles except the Aston Martin One-77 and the 2011 Toyota iQ- based Cygnet city car. That came to an end in 2016, when the Brits introduced their new, lighter architecture that includes parts engineered by Mercedes’ high-performance AMG division. The new platform will also see Aston Martin vehicles receive the biturbo, 4.0-liter V-8 launched in the Mercedes-AMG GT, which will be supplied to Gaydon based on a partnership with Daimler. The first Aston Martin product to benefit from these new features has just been unveiled at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. It goes by the name DB11 and replaces the already iconic DB9.

Set to arrive in showrooms for the 2017 model year, the DB11 introduces Aston Martin’s new styling language. Previewed by the DB10 James Bond movie car, the new design brings a sportier and more compact appearance to Aston Martin’s grand tourer, while still relying the classic features that made this brand famous in the 1960s.

Along with the new design, the DB11 also debuts Gaydon’s brand-new V-12 powerplant, which now makes use of turbocharging for enhanced output, improved fuel economy, and reduced emissions. Aston’s first all-new, mass-produced vehicle in more than a decade, the DB11 marks the beginning of a new era for Britain’s famed GT manufacturer.

Updated 07/20/2016: Aston Martin dropped a new video featuring the DB11 sports car testing during hot weather in Phoenix, Arizona. Hit “play” to watch how it endured the extreme weather conditions.

Aston Martin DB9 GT Bond Edition-1

When Aston Martin announced the DB9 GT edition we thought it was the swan song for the DB9 and that there won’t be another new version until it gets replaced by the DB11. Turns out they are not done milking this nameplate just yet. Welcome the Aston Martin DB9 GT Bond Edition.

Inspired by the latest Bond movie SPECTRE and celebrating the car maker’s long and fruitful partnership with the franchise, Aston Martin DB9 GT Bond Edition is limited to just 150 units worldwide each costing £165,000. It comes with a lot of accessories and bespoke features to justify that price tag.

Aston Martin DB9 GT Bond Edition-2

Visually, the DB9 GT Bond edition comes with Spectre Silver paint; sterling silver Aston Martin badges front and rear; and discreet ‘007 Bond Edition’ exterior badging. They complement the GT’s own unique features, including ten-spoke gloss black diamond turned 20-inch alloy wheels; bright aluminium bonnet vents, side strakes and grille; carbon fibre front splitter and rear diffuser, and grey brake calipers.

Aston Martin DB9 GT Bond Edition-3

Inside the cabin you will find some cool additions such as unique numbered sill plaques featuring the familiar 007 logo; gun barrel embroidery on the 2+2’s rear seat divider and a special Bond Edition start-up screen on the new model’s AMi II touch-sensitive Aston Martin infotainment system. What’s more, you get fluted leather; an Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel and a satin carbon fibre centre console surround.

Aston Martin DB9 GT Bond Edition-4

Aston Martin DB9 GT Bond Edition is powered by the old but still lovely 6.0-litre V12 engine, developing here 547 PS and 620 Nm of torque. As for the accessories we’ve talking about, the buyers will get a 21” Globe-Trotter trolley case finished with an embossed leather luggage tag, and an Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra 150m James Bond Limited Edition watch complete with a unique Aston Martin strap.

PostHeaderIcon Kahn Vengeance WB12 Gets Action Teaser

Kahn Vengeance WB12

British tuner Kahn Design, as you may know, has developed a taste for bespoke coach-build cars lately. After successfully launching the Evanta and the Flying Huntsman, they have now come up with a super GT car which they call Kahn Vengeance WB12. In this latest teaser/preview we see the car in action at Millbrook Proving Ground.

Not that there is much action to be seen. Kahn Vengeance WB12 is based on the Aston Martin DB9 and according to the latest reports uses the same V12 powertrain as the standard car. Still, the car looks pretty quick in the footage, though they might have sped it up a bit!

Kahn Vengeance WB12 is not really a performance machine. It’s all about the looks, this car, and the prestige of a bespoke coach-built car with a Kahn Design badge. Most of the DB9 body panels have been modified in this treatment, getting that special Kahn touch that makes their tuner cars so unique. There is as yet no word on pricing and technical specifications of the Vengeance.

Aston Martin has been relying on its VH (Vertical/Horizontal) platform since 2001, using it in all of its vehicles except the 2012 Aston Martin One-77 and the 2011 Toyota iQ-based 2011 Aston Martin Cygnet city car. That’s about to come to an end in 2016, when the Brits are set to introduce a new, lighter architecture that will include parts engineered by Mercedes’ high-performance AMG division. The new platform will also see Aston Martin vehicles receive the biturbo, 4.0-liter V-8 launched in the 2016 Mercedes-AMG GT, which will be supplied to Gaydon based on a partnership with Daimler. The first Aston Martin product to benefit from these new features will be the successor to the current 2013 Aston Martin DB9, which is rumored to arrive in showrooms for the 2017 model year.

Not much is known about the grand tourer set to replace the DB9 as of April 2015. Even the name it will carry is a mystery, although Aston’s recent trademarks for names DB10 through DB14 provides a few hints. With the DB10 moniker having already been used for the bespoke 2015 Aston Martin DB10 car built for the James Bond “Spectre” movie, it’s likely the DB9’s replacement will be launched as the DB11. Making this scenario that much more likely is the fact that Aston Martin has skipped names in the past, jumping from DB7 to DB9 to suggest the massive technological differences between the two. With the new car set to gain a new platform, the Brits could very well do the same thing here and go with the DB11 name.

Updated 07/22/2015: Youtube user cvdzijden was lucky enough to catch the upcoming Aston Martin DB11 testing on the Nurburgring. Check out the video to watch the future supercar flexing its muscles on the ring.

Aston Martin DB9 GT-0

It is true that there is an all-new Aston Martin DB9 is in the works right now, but that car is scheduled for launch in 2017 and until then the Brits will have to come up with solutions to keep the current version of the grand tourer nice and fresh. The new Aston Martin DB9 GT is one such solution.

Pitched as the “most compelling production ‘DB’ to date,” the Aston Martin DB9 GT is the ultimate expression of what the DB9 can be, boasting a 547 horsepower version of the 6.0 liter V12 engine we all know so well with 620 Nm of torque. That oomph enables the GT to sprint form 0 to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds and reach a top speed of 183 mph.

Aston Martin DB9 GT-00

Styling-wise, the DB9 GT is not substantially different from its normal siblings but it comes with black painted splitter and diffuser, revised headlight and tail light treatments and new ten-spoke 20-inch alloy wheels. You can also order carbon fibre tail lamp inserts, side strakes, front splitter and rear diffuser; graphite, diamond-turned ten-spoke alloy wheels and alternative brake caliper colours. Inside the cabin ‘GT’ embroidery on the unique fluted leather, iridium trim pack and Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel are among the main highlights.

Other technical highlights of the Aston Martin DB9 GT include independent double wishbone suspension and three-stage Adaptive Damping System (ADS) offers distinct  Normal, Sport and Track modes. The car also gets Aston’s new AMi II infotainment package with a host of connectivity features.

PostHeaderIcon First Look: Kahn Vengeance Design Sketches

Kahn Vengeance-sketch-1

Following the first teaser image, Kahn Design has now revealed the first official design sketches of their new coach-built model, the Kahn Vengeance WB12. The luxury coupe is a re-styled Aston Martin DB9 featuring the same exact powetrain.

To be honest we were expecting something a bit more, well, substantial from something called Kahn Vengeance. But turns out it is just a mildly face-lifted DB9. Based on what we can see in the sketches, the WB12 gets all-new bumpers and front grille, modified bonnet and wings, new taillights, and massively flared fenders, hence the name WB12 (Wide Body with a V12 engine).

Kahn Vengeance-sketch-2

The large wheel arches house an unusual wheel setup with 16 inch rims up front and 18 inch out back. Kahn is seeing no reason to fiddle with the DB9 engine which means those rear tires have to deal with only 510 horsepower. One would imagine that with all the extra bits fitted to the body, the Vengeance is probably heavier than the standard DB9 and therefore a tad slower.

Kahn Vengeance-sketch-3

Commenting on Kahn Vengeance, company founder Afzal Kahn said: “Launching the Vengeance is the realisation of a dream I’ve had since childhood, to design and produce my own car. I’ve worked in the industry my whole career, and I want to leave a legacy which I can be proud of. The design has gone through several iterations over the years and I’ve taken my time in selecting the right partners to prototype and manufacture the car, ensuring it represents the pinnacle of quality and perfection.”

PostHeaderIcon Aston Martin DB11 Spied For The First Time: Spy Shots

It’s been just two weeks since the successor to the Aston Martin DB9 was spotted carving the Nurburgring, and the Brits already started testing a new mule of their upcoming grand tourer. It wouldn’t be a big deal if the prototype was wearing the old DB9 body in the process, but this new mule gives us our first look at the DB11’s design. I say “DB11” because that’s the name the DB9’s successor is likely to receive, since Aston Martin already trademarked it and since the DB10 moniker is already used by the one-off car created for the James Bond “Spectre” movie.

Expect the DB11 to break cover sometime in 2016 for the 2017 model year, as the first Aston Martin built on the company’s new platform. The DB9, and all the other Aston Martins currently in production for that matter, including the DB10, use the VH (Vertical/Horizontal) architecture introduced all the way back in 2001. New engines are also on the table, so make sure you keep reading to find out more about the upcoming DB11.

PostHeaderIcon Aston Martin DB9 Successor Caught Playing On The Nurburgring: Spy Shots

Twelve years since the model was first revealed, the DB9 is finally heading toward its demise, and Aston Martin has already started work on its successor. A development mule for the next DB9 was recently spotted on the Nurburgring Nordschleife, where it was likely testing a new powertrain or platform. I wouldn’t hold it against you if you thought that it looks just like a regular DB9 from the current generation, but a keen eye would notice that the front end is wider and that there is some light camouflage on the lower part of the front bumper. Also, the model’s wheelbase is longer and the hood features two extra closing mechanisms.

Since the next DB9 is expected to be launched sometime in 2016, this development mule will probably be replaced with camouflaged, pre-production protoypes toward the end of 2015. That would make it closer to when the DB10 is featured in Spectre, the 24th James Bond film, though that would be just a coincidence. What won’t be a coincidence is that the 2017 DB9 will probably borrow some design cues from the movie-only DB10.

Despite Aston’s recent tie-in with Mercedes-AMG, from which it will source V-8 engines in the future, the next DB9 is expected to feature a revamped version of the current V-12 powerplant. Attached to a transaxle version of the eight-speed automatic from ZF, the improved 12-cylinder is expected to offer more power and better fuel consumption than today’s version.
