The Aston Martin DB9 Coupé (also referred to just as DB9) is an Aston Martin grand tourer.
The Aston Martin DB9 is the successor to the Aston Martin DB7 with a Ford VH (Vertical/Horizontal) platform composed mainly of aluminum. Its engine is derived from the Aston Martin V12 Vanquish and its bodywork was derived from the Aston Martin DBS. It is often considered the car that defines modern Aston Martins, and was in production for 12 years (2004-2016).
The Aston Martin DB9 was replaced by the Aston Martin DB11 in 2016.

Performance & usage
The DB9 Coupé is inferior to the DS Survolt in most aspects besides top speed with weaker acceleration, weaker handling & drift radius and shorter nitro durations.
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, RUF RT 12 S, and RUF CTR 3. However, the other Aston Martin models (the V12 Zagato, V12 Vantage, Vantage 2018, DBS Superleggera, Victor, One-77, Vulcan, and Valhalla) are each straight upgrades to each other in overall performance, 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 a poor choice for Time-Limited Events, and Mastery (Asphalt 8) and stands as the worst vehicle in Class B. For Multiplayer, the DB9 is also a poor choice as it will be put in races against the Donkervoort D8 GTO, Ariel Atom V8, DS Survolt, McLaren MP4/8, Audi R8 e-tron Special Edition and Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG Special Edition, none of which it can compete against.
As of the Fifteenth Anniversary Update, the DB9 Coupé costs 320,000 to purchase (originally 14,500, then 21,750 and then 53,000). 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.
The DB9 Coupé counts towards the Aston Martin, Britain's Finest, GT Club and British Gentlemen collections.
