The Coolest Cars at Goodwoods
ASTON MARTIN DB9 GT
Only announced the day before, we were lucky enough to jump in the new Aston Martin DB9 GT for a blast up Goodwoods hillclimb. Packing 547hp its the most potent DB9 ever, hitting 62mph in 4.5 seconds. Its 6.0 litre V12 engine was certainly vocal enough to attract the attention of the crowds at Goodwood.
