2009 Aston Martin DB9 Volante
When it was unveiled, the DB9 represented a significant change in direction for Aston Martin. Following the David Brown years, Aston had encountered many financial troubles that often prevented them from devoting the resources to develop innovative new models from the ground up. The DB9 represented the end of this frustrating era and was the first of a completely new generation of Aston Martins, becoming their first truly modern car. With a remarkable aluminum chassis, the DB9 is stronger and 25% lighter than its predecessor. The car is clothed in stunning aluminum and composite bodywork styled by Ian Callum and Henrik Fisker, and is built in an all-new state-of-the-art facility at Gaydon. The powerplant is a 5.9 liter V12 producing 450hp and fabulous exhaust noises. The suspension is equally impressive, with forged aluminum double wishbones and even aluminum damper housings. The gearbox is mounted at the rear via a torque tube with carbon fiber driveshaft. With innovative technology, superb dynamics, and striking aesthetics, the cars are truly world-class and the marque’s well-deserved renaissance is a direct result of this car.
This particular car is a one-owner example which has always lived in Northern California. It received an annual service in 2021 and has covered just 8,300 miles from new. It comes with Aston Martin battery charger, owner’s manual, wind deflector with bag, tire pump, and umbrella.
