At this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed the new Mercedes-AMG GT R made its world debut. The street legal car is powerful and fast, but it is the sound that turns most heads. The exhaust sound is very loud and it crackles when downshifting.
The styling looks very similar to the standard GT, but in a more aggressive form. This is largely thanks to its aerodynamic features and the large rear wing. It also features active aerodynamics.
Today Aston Martin unveiled the DB9 GT at the Goodwood Featival of Speed. The bespoke luxury GT car looks like it should be quite the machine for someone trying to tap into their inner Bond (and of course it costs plenty of cash as well).
Performance of the machine is very good as the 6.0-liter V12 engine puts out plenty of naturally aspirated power. It is capable of great performance, but as an Aston Martin should, it does so while keeping you in luxury.
