For those days when you just had your DB9 detailed and don't want to get it dirty again, Aston Martin Racing is now offering up the DBRS9, a track version of the run-of-the-mill DB9 that incorporates design features of the GT1-spec DBR9. Featuring carbon composite body panels and polycarbonate side and rear windows, the DBRS9 loses an Atkins-like 1,058 pounds. The car incorporates the DB9's aluminum-bonded chassis but takes its roll cage from the DBR9. The 6.0L V12 has been pumped up to 550 hp while the suspension's been lowered on Koni adjustable dampers and stiffer springs. The six-speed now also rows through an H-pattern gearbox, unless of course you opt for the full sequential racing box, which shouldn't add that much to the $319,000 base price.
