It’s now the ‘in thing’ for brands to thank and acknowledge their Facebook fans with celebratory videos or, in Aston Martin’s case, a unique one-off production car.
The company’s fans chose the DB9 and then decided on the on all aspects of the car from the exterior wrap to the interior trim. Once Aston Martin’s page reached 1 million fans, the automaker went ahead and built the car to their specifications.
The bespoke model was created through a series of polls which asked fans to pick the car’s name, design and trim. The end result isn’t terribly attractive, but the car features an “Aero” wrap, black brake calipers and 20-inch diamond-turned alloy wheels. Interior pictures were not released, but the cabin has Obsidian Black/Spicy Red leather upholstery and piano black trim.
As with the standard DB9, power comes from a 6.0-litre V12 engine that produces 350 kW and 600 Nm of torque. Power is directed to the rear wheels via a 6x-speed automatic transmission, which enables the car to accelerate from 0 – 100 km/h in 4.8 seconds and hit a top speed of 300 km/h.
