Wow , that's one superb car collection your friends has.Out of the lot if I had to pick one it would definitely be the Aston martin DB-9.Man ! what a beauty.
But that Sl-65 AMG does it come with that type of bodykit . I don't think so.Can you please correct me on this.

That's not a middling DB9, it's the top of the line DBS (aka the Bond car from Casino Royale)

The SL65 AMG Black Series has that bodykit as standard, much like any other Black Series car (CLK63 Black etc.). The car is based on the regular SL chassis but eschews a folding roof in favor of a carbon fiber fixed roof.

@Quickdraw: One small fender bender on that gorgeous bodywork and you'll pay a couple of Swifts to repair it.

@Viper_SRT: Nope, just one boat. I'll try and post pictures of the Veyron later in the day.

Well the DBS is only a DB9 basically on a diet. Also with a few minor tweaks like the stiffened suspension ,racing seats,alloys ,traction system and esp overhauled and also with carbon ceramic brakes.

That's like saying Keira Knightley is only a Salma Hayek on a diet. No no no, they're not the same! I drove a friend's DB9 Volante on some A-roads in England and then this DBS in the UAE, their driving feel is quite different.

Alloys? The DB9 has alloys as well. The stiffened suspension is now available on the refreshed DB9. The DBS is actually based on the DBR9 race car and only borrows some exterior bits from the DB9. The interior trim & dash is quite different as well. On the cars I drove, the DB9 Volante had a Linn audio system while the DBS has an earth shattering B&O.

Everything's been posted earlier. Hennessy has screwed everyone in this world, so I'm pretty sure he's done something with this car as well. But hey, it works so who cares?

@UnknownSatan: I'm about to head to the airport to catch a flight to Bombay. I'll post from there in the evening.
