The DB9 appears in Need for Speed: Most Wanted. It is unlocked after the player defeats Blacklist Racer #7 - Kira Nakazato and costs $90,000. Blacklist Racer #3 - Ronald McCrea - drives a heavily modified DB9 with a unique paint job.

Handling is the biggest weakness of the DB9 due to its heavy weight, as it tends to understeer in corners making it best utilised in pursuits. However, it can reach a high top speed.

It can beat slower tier 2 cars, but will have issues beating quicker tier 2 cars. It suffers from heavy steering, but comes with respectable acceleration and a high top speed.
