The Aston Martin DB9 Coupé is an early Class B car. It is the second car in Class B and is one of the 10 original cars in Class B.
The DB9 Coupé has a starting rank of 1161 (shared with the Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione from Class C), a MAX rank of 1337, and a MAX + PRO rank of 1394. The DB9 Coupé receives a Tuning Kit bonus of +41.
The DB9 Coupé has a very bad "triple-tap" launch speed of around 7 seconds (+Nitro Starter -Tuning Kit). The DB9 Coupé's handling is not unbearable but it is inferior to the DS Survolt's, while the DB9 Coupé's drifting and nitro efficiency (10/15/20) are both very bad.
The DB9 Coupé's only advantages against the DS Survolt are a much higher raw top speed and a slightly higher total top speed (with a Tuning Kit, the total top speed is roughly equal, due to the DS Survolt's superior Tuning Kit bonus), though the DS Survolt's far superior nitro efficiency usually means that it has a higher average speed unless the user has activated an Extra Tank.
The DB9 Coupé can be described as one of the worst cars in the game for its rank, being even worse than the Dodge Dart GT, SRT 2013 Dodge Challenger SRT8, Dodge Viper SRT10 ACR-X, and both RUF cars, relatively speaking. However, the DB9 Coupé's relatives, the V12 Zagato, V12 Vantage, One-77, and Vulcan, are each straight upgrades to each other in every statistic, including drifting radius and nitro efficiency, going from the lowest-ranked car to the highest-ranked car. This means that all of the other Aston Martin cars possess fewer and fewer of the downsides of the DB9 Coupé, to the point where they possess none at all.
The DB9 Coupé competes as a starter's car for Class B, though it is highly recommended to buy the DS Survolt instead. The DB9 Coupé is very bad for Multiplayer or Time-Limited Events. Currently, it stands as the worst vehicle in Class B. The DB9 Coupé counts towards the Aston Martin, Britain's Finest, GT Club and British Gentlemen collections.
As of the Motorcycles Update, the DB9 Coupé costs 53,000 to purchase (originally 14,500, then 21,750). As of the 2019 Spring Update, upgrades cost 315,000 while Pro Kits require 50,400, 8 of each Class B Part and 6 Initial & Early Techs each.
