    I'm a motorhead. Cars, bikes, boats, snowmobiles. If it has a motor I love it.

    True fucking story I am about to tell.


    So my father was pretty good friends with Evel Knievel and EK taught me how to drive in his Aston Martin Lagonda when I was 12. True story. Thank you.

    Truth.

    I drove very slow on the driveway. I'm an excellent driver.



    Also, whenever I do something dumb or crazy when I'm driving and my passengers take exception, I tell them who taught me to drive. At least I ain't jumping busses, motherfuckers. :pie:

    I'll give it a 10. A bit worried that it would be a maintenance nightmare. Any specs?

    Personally I would never buy a car made by Brits as everything they make is shit but if I had enough money to buy one of these I would just because it looks so much better than a Ferrari or Lambo. And like someone else said it is James Bond approved. I give it a 9.0

    I was told that this car has a pussy magnet. Can someone show me where that is? (one of the best lines from Borat)

    One of the biggest changes concerns the DB9’s 6.0-liter V-12 engine, which sees power jump by 40-bhp, from the previous car’s 470 bhp up to 510 bhp for the 2013 model year. Torque output sees a similar, though less dramatic, improvement from 443 to 457 lb.-ft. Aston estimates the DB9 2+2 coupe should be capable of accelerating from 0 to 60 mph in 4.6 seconds.

    Price = $185k
