Aston Martin DB9 | Hybrid Plugin thanks to Bosch
The hybrid goes out of style and begins to find some space in the market segments in which nobody thought it could take root so easily as the elite niche of supercars. As a result, today it is not very surprising news that the Aston Martin is going to be hybrid, although it is only a prototype developed together with Bosch. After a year of development, this ecological DB9 is finally marching towards the height of its efficiency. When analyzed in detail we can say that in addition to the mighty V12 510 hp from the previous version, there are two electric motors that transmit power from 180 kW at the front axle. Consequently, the traction becomes integral and the total power is equivalent to that of a F12, or 740 hp.

Obviously, the weight is increased by as much as 300 kg for a total of 2.100 kg but it is estimated that performance is increased by 20% in addition to the historic center, you can travel for about 25 km with zero impact using only the electric thrusters. Good news for those who use the car even in the city!

For the moment the Aston Martin DB9 hybrid plug in will remain at the prototype stage but it will not be a technical exercise and end in itself to serve as a basis for the construction of future models of the House of Gaydon. As a result, in a few years even 007 will be able to travel with a hybrid Aston!
