The DB9 was the star of the 2003 Frankfurt Motor show where it was unveiled to the public for the very first time. The sleek superformed aluminium body was initially designed by Ian Callum but had also been significantly influenced by the next director of AM design, Hendrik Fisker. The DB9 was powered by a third generation version of the now familiar 6.0 litre V12 and has a top speed of 186mph. Production of the coupe started at the new Gaydon factory very early in 2004, with the Volante coming on stream early in 2005.
The DB9 was the first of what was to become a long line of production Aston Martins to use VH architecture the DB 9 used Superformed 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 are bonded with strong adhesives and self-piercing rivets to make a lightweight but stiff backbone. The DB9 body shell weighed 25% less than that of the DB7 but has double its torsional rigidity. This process also allowed Aston Martin to retain high levels of engineering accuracy in producing a car at a higher volume, ensuring chassis performance to match the engine power.
Aston Martins have always made the interior of their cars to be very special places. Beautifully tailored with the finest of materials, the DB9 follows uses Bridge of Weir leather, aluminium and wood. The use of wood in the interior was different from previous Aston Martins, with customers offered a choice of walnut, mahogany or bamboo. The fine detail of finishing typifies by the starter button made of glass, sand etched with the Aston Martin wings logo.
The Aston Martin DB9 is being recognised, both in its Coupe and Volante forms, as probably the most affordable supercar on the market today.
But that value is lost on a car whose maintenance has been less than thorough. That is not the case here – a well maintained, well specified and beautifully presented car that is truly ready for its next owner.
First registered in Ireland to its first owner and supplied through the services of Charles Hurst in Belfast to a company Director, Martin Bohill of County Dublin. Serviced regularly by Charles Hurst up until December 2015 when the stated odometer reading was 67,880 km, the car came back to the UK where is was registered by Chester based dealer Richard Grace Cars Ltd on 6th January 2016.
Acquired by the current owner through Aston Martin dealers, Grange of Brentwood, on 16th June the same year, the exemplary service history was maintained by consecutive annual services in June 2017 and July 2018 at Aston Martin Cambridge.
The owner loves the car and it is presented in outstanding condition – a thoroughbred not a show pony!
