So, being an avid car afficionado, I decided I would interweave the automobile industry-namely, the upper echelon of the industry- with the Fashion industry… Enter Couture Cars. First up, while not known to many, it hails from a British company known for it’s grand tourers, as well as one of 007 Agent James Bond’s favorites: The Aston Martin DB9.
The Aston Martin DB9 was introduced in 2004 as a successor to the famed Aston Martin DB7. Coming in Coupe’ and Volante (convertible) form, the DB9 is powered by a 450hp V-12 engine, blasting the GT to 60mph in 4.6, topping out at 186mph. With a base price starting around $160,000 for the Coupe’, the DB9 can be configured in hundreds of exterior/interior color combinations and, if that’s too “common” for your tastes, Aston Martin offers a custom order program (for that price, why wouldn’t they?!?)
As keeping with U.C.’s personal beliefs-so to speak- I decided I’d post about the Aston Martin since it’s a vehicle many wouldn’t think about when ultra-luxurious vehicles come to mind, especially something coming out of the UK. It’s sexy, sleek, and has a bit of a lower profile, especially when compared to its main competitor, the Bentley Continental Coupe. Additionally, one would be able to say that his/her vehicle wouldn’t be spotted at the valet often. It has that Savile Row quality; you may not know what it is exactly, but you know that your dealing with something serious.
