Last Aston Martin DB9 Rolls off the Assembly Line

Last Aston Martin DB9 Rolls off the Assembly Line

It’s the end of the road for an automotive icon. The last Aston Martin DB9 rolled off the assembly line this month after making its debut 13 years ago.

Aston Martin tweeted some pics of the final nine DB9s waiting patiently for their inspection. The supercars all have “Last of 9” badging.

As Aston Martin says goodbye to the DB9 with its naturally aspirated 6.0-litre V12, it’s preparing to welcome the DB11 to the family.

The DB11 is a huge deal for Aston Martin because it launches the next era of the brand.  It’s built on Aston Martin’s new lighter, stronger, aluminum platform and is the first to feature the brand’s new 5.2 liter twin-turbo V12 good for 600 horses. It has a top speed of 200 mph.

It’s also Aston Martin’s first all-new vehicle since CEO Andy Palmer took the helm in 2014. Palmer says he’ll personally inspect the first 1000 DB11s. He’ll also place an inspection badge, with his signature on it, onto every one of the DB11’s V12 engines he looks over.

The DB11 starts at $211,995 and the first deliveries start late this year.
