Aston Martin DB9 @ Hong Kong

Move over Singapore!
Hong Kong is the home of the most stunning cars on this planet ... In the midst of the hustle and bustle of the city, with the millions of people streaming by, it is not uncommon to see a Lamborghini in bright yellow, a Maybach in mellow black, a red Ferrari 430 etc etc... Here's an Aston that I observed in a residential car park ... drooool.


The Aston Martin DB9 is a grand tourer launched by Aston Martin in 2004.
The DB9 is the first new car to be built at Aston's Gaydon facility. The name "DB" stems from David Brown, the owner of Aston Martin for a sizeable part of its history. The DB9, which was designed by Ian Callum and finished by his successor, Henrik Fisker, superseded the now-discontinued Aston Martin DB7 (also by Callum) which started production in 1994.

Power: 450 bhp (331 kW) @ 6000 rpm
Torque: 420 ft·lbf (570 N·m) @ 5000 rpm
Weight: 1,710 kg (3,770 lb)
0-60 mph (0-97 km/h): 4.7 seconds
Top Speed: 186 mph (299 km/h)



Simply stunning ...
