On my ride into work today something amazing happened. I rode past an Aston Martin DB9 in the flesh, on the streets of New York City. One of the most timeless and elegant supercars out there, just sitting in traffic, going about its day to day.
After leaving the sleek, silver hunk of British design in the dust (thanks to the traffic, not my mediocre cycling) I got to thinking about all the other DB cars Aston Martin has made over the years.
While now, you might be able to pop out and buy the new DB11, there have been way more than 11 cars to hold the two letter title. A title that stems from the name David Brown. In 1947, Brown purchased the struggling automaker to try and revive the struggling car brand. It sort of worked, and helped create the struggling car brand you see today.
And along that 75-year history, Aston Martin has churned out 15 different cars that have each worn the DB name with pride. So, from cars in the current lineup to rare beasts from the 1960s, here’s our ranking of every factory-fresh Aston Martin DB car out there.
I wonder who among us has seen the most in the flesh?
