About this car
UPDATE: In February 2020 the car underwent the interim service. During lockdown the car had the plugs, coils and inlet gaskets changed at a cost of around £3k.
The DB9 was the darling of the 2003 Motor show in Frankfurt where it wowed the audience for the very first time. The DB9 was powered by a third-generation version of the now familiar 6.0 litre, V12 and had a top speed of 186mph. It was the first of what was to become a long line of production Aston Martins to use VH architecture; using Super formed parts in the chassis and footwell as well as the body panels. The individual die-cast, extruded or stamped aluminium elements of the VH platform were bonded with strong adhesives and self-piercing rivets to make a lightweight but stiff backbone.
Bridge of Weir leather, walnut veneers and aluminium all combine to make an Aston Martin cockpit feel like a very special place to be, and this is no exception, with the trademark Power, Beauty, Soul appearing on the driver’s console as you ignite the V12. The use of wood in the interior was different from previous Aston Martins and this combination of Ivory leather, walnut centre console and some Caspian blue upper leather accents works really well to bring a sense of occasion to the cockpit environment.
This delightful DB9 Volante is finished in Aviemore Blue with an Atlantic Blue mohair hood. There is a very good mostly main dealer history to accompany this Aston Martin, it is clear that this has been a well looked after example. (The history is listed below). It also had a wheel refurb in May 2020.
The familiar roar of the V12 engine is evocative enough in itself, but it’s when the car is driven on the open road that it really comes to life, with a healthy 451bhp this car is no slouch. These GTs combine a wonderful mix of comfort, speed, presence and prestige, and they are as comfortable pottering around town as tearing down a French AutoRoute. Supplied with a V5C registration document together with a current MoT test certificate, the car is HPi cleared the original handbook and both keys.
