Perhaps the lap was to slow and because it is a British car it had to be brilliant, so... :roll: :wink:

you know, that isnt that far fetched!! i agree, especially since it was put in the "fridge" which was the farthest, coolest place to put a car. They made it out to be the coolest car ever on the show and they wouldnt want to mess that up with an average lap.

u'r kidding wright? the DB9 will be nowhere near those times. i think it will be in the same league as the ferrari 575, SL 55 AMG, ... and do you expect/want it to be faster? i don't. the car is still about style, prestige and comfort. not flying around a track

v12 man :p it should be faster i duno its still not a merc. plus when they were doing the CL65 track time at one point JC says its faster than a DB9 here, so it looks like they took it on the track, but never showed the time.. :evil:

He doesn't say the CL65 is faster on the track! He says the CL65 is much quicker in a straight line than the Continental GT and the DB9. (referring to the drag race they've done) :p
