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.
A beautiful car, a clearly traceable ownership history and an immaculate service record. If you are looking for a modern Aston Martin classic to buy, you just found it.
This lovely car was first purchased by a Mr Couling of Poole in Dorset in September 2005 and he kept the car barely a year before it was purchased by a Simon Dedman of West Yorkshire.
He owned the car for rather longer and the car returned south to Hitchin in Hertfordshire when it was acquired by a Mrs Connold in September 2014 – a year later and on to a Guy Davies of Tonbridge and then a year later in September 2016 to its current London based owner.
There are two elements remarkable in that history – firstly all the owners covered only a modest mileage and the second fact is that the mileage can be verified by one of the most comprehensive service histories that any Aston Martin owner would covet – every service conducted by time and every service the work of established and recognised Aston Martin specialists.
