My saxo is pretty quick. Your car is 350bhp more powerful. I think its more than pretty quick.
If the boy racers are in a Mitsubishi Evolution, then they might beat you!
For the price of this car, you should be able to outrun anything!
Your DB9 won't overtake a skyline because both cars accelerate at the same rate. Although for the price it should do...
I really would like to know what is up with their transmissions!! I have had 3 put in mine and they can't seem to handle the power transfering to the rear wheels, it jsut bogs down with only a chirp if I power break it.
I was thinking of buying the DB9 next weekend, I have noticed mixed thoughts on the car. Would you guys recommend buying it?
I have read there are a lot of problems with build quality and I usually do a lot of mileage in my cars, what do actual DB9 owners think?
My other choice would be the Ferrari F430 but I like the styling of the DB9 better.
I have already owned the Mercedes SL55 and Porsche 911 Turbo and would like to get a different car this time, would anyone recommend a better car?
To the guy who owned the SL55 and TT911, there is only one way to go. Ferrari. Or Lamborghini. OK, DB9 will do fine too.
It can't handle or brake like a Porsche Turbo because the Aston is about 300lbs heavier. It doesn't matter what you do to the brakes or suspension, weight kills performance. End of story.
Recently drove an 07 DB9 and there really is no comparison to a boy racer. Forget the performance, you should hear the sound of a DB9. Best way I can describe it is somewhere between an SL55 and Ferrari F430 for pure aural pleasure. I am sure you can google the sound if you really want to see, er, hear what I mean.
As for performance, don't forget the Aston is a super responsive, naturally aspirated V12 so most laggy turbos cannot compete. Indeed the most amazing thing about the DB9 is how overly sensitive the throttle was. Definitely a car to be careful with.
I would rather have a Z06 that I can drive long distance daily and does not break. And I can afford to spend cash, but not afford my time lost going to repair facilities. Or glancing at my rarely driven cars in the garage, parked, afraid to run them much.
