|Engine Description||The New DB9 is powered by our all-new AM11 engine, the most powerful in DB9's history. Its 6.0-litre capacity delivers 517 PS, a 0-62 mph time of just 4.6 secs and 620 Nm of torque - a 10% increase on our previous model. AM11 has also been specifically engineered to give an extra 40 Nm of torque between 0 and 4000 rpm, meaning impressive improvements at both high and low engine speeds and additional power at higher revs. Technology integrated from our GT race car programme such as CNC-machined combustion chambers and hollow cam shafts mean AM11 is also as advanced as it is powerful.
