Aston Martin DB9 by RSC Tuning


The Aston Martin DB9 has already received a major update for the 2011 model year, but one lucky tuner in Miami, Fl got the chance to make the supercar even better with a tuning package of their own. RSC Tuning have already started working on the exterior modifications for their super project, with engine mods to follow in the near future.

Changing it up a little for the Aston Martin DB9 is new RSC clear rear tail lights, a new RSC sports exhaust, RSC performance air filters, COR wheels, RSC lowering springs, RSC custom floor mats, and Vantage Collection rear diffuser. Future updates will make the kit much better as RSC Tuning is planning on performing an ECU update and using RSC 100 Cell secondary sports catalysts.

Since the engine updates have not been executed as of yet, the tuner could not volunteer any information on how it would affect the performance of the DB9. We know the 2011 Aston Martin DB9 is currently working with a 6.0L V12 engine that produces 470bhp and 442lb ft of torque. Mated to a six-speed ?Touchtronic? paddle-shift automatic or six-speed H-pattern manual transmission, the DB9 gets from 0-60mph in just 4.6 seconds with a top speed of 190mph. We fully expect to get much more power once the engine has been revised, and we can’t wait to hear about it!
