"The Aston Martin DB9 is a thoroughbred sports car with GT levels of comfort and refinement. Combining Aston Martin's unique character with an uncompromising design philosophy, the DB9 was borne out of a synthesis of traditional craftsmanship, high-tech manufacturing, modern components and use of the finest materials." - Aston Martin.

Launched in 2003 as successor to the DB7, the DB9 is historically significant as the first model to be built at Aston Martin's new factory at Gaydon, Warwickshire. Like its predecessor, the DB9 was styled by Ian Callum, with finishing touches applied by Henrik Fisker. State-of-the-art manufacturing techniques were employed in making the aluminium/composite body, which was robotically assembled using a combination of self-piercing rivets and adhesive. Although some 25% lighter than that of the DB7, this advanced bodyshell possesses double the structural stiffness.

The DB9 is powered by a development of the 5.9-litre, 48-valve, V12 engine found in the DB7 Vantage, which produces 450bhp, an output sufficient to propel the aerodynamic coupé to a top speed of 189mph with 60mph attainable from a standing start in an impressive 4.6 seconds. The aluminium engine is mounted as far back as possible in the chassis while the transmission/final drive is positioned ahead of the rear axle, resulting in 85% of the car's mass being sited between the axles and a perfect 50/50 front/rear weight distribution. Transmission options are a six-speed manual or six-speed 'Touchtronic 2' Automatic.

Inside the DB9 one finds the typically elegant, luxurious, and supremely comfortable hand-crafted interior traditionally associated with Aston Martin, featuring primarily wood and leather trim as well as the latest in modern technology, subtly deployed. Although scheduled for a slightly higher production level than previous Aston Martins, the DB9 remained an exclusive product affordable only by a privileged few. Its price at launch was £111,000, with the Volante convertible some £14,000 more.

The car presented here is a 2006 Aston Martin DB9 Volante finished to a very high specification in Onyx Black with full Black leather interior and Piano Black wood, plus upgraded alloy wheels, heated seats, heated front screen, cruise control, Bluetooth, and a Linn audio package.

Over the years, this handsome car has been treated to 11 Aston Martin main dealer services, the last of which was at 35,390 miles (the cars mileage still), completed at Aston Martin Bristol in July 2021.

In November 20121, the cars media interface was upgraded/quipped with Apple CarPlay / Android Auto and an HD screen, with this work being done by Aston Installations and costing of £3,244. This upgrade also includes a front and rear parking camera and a Blackvue front dash-cam with battery pack.

Not to be missed, this DB9 is certainly a lot of Aston Martin at this guide price and is sure to offer pride of ownership, proper driving involvement and much enjoyment to its next owner.
