Last hurrah DB9 gets extra berries

AS the DB9 trundles towards retirement, the newly landed GT variant ensures it will do so on a high note. More power is the first thing you need to know, as 17kW more is squeezed from its V12.

But to also mark the model as special, it smuggles in black splitters, a fancy engraved petrol cap, and black brake calipers.

Embroidery on the inside also ups the exclusivity, and you won’t be able to spec its 20-inch alloys on other DB9s either.
