Sleek, sexy styling; first-class, hand-built craftsmanship; ultra-powerful V12 engine and superior performance; refined luxury.
Aston Martin introduced the DB9 in 2005, and the response from both the press and the public was overwhelming. For 2008, the DB9 has lost little of its luster, and both the model and the Aston brand are as popular as ever.
The DB9 is available as either a 2+2 coupe or 2+2 convertible, called the Volante. Both are built on Aston's proprietary Vertical/Horizontal (VH) chassis, a highly advanced bonded aluminum structure that provides immense structural rigidity. Also, both the coupe and Volante are powered by a 450-horsepower, all-aluminum 5.9L V12 that produces 420 ft-lbs of torque, and both cars can be ordered with either a six-speed manual or Touchtronic automatic. Either DB9 is capable of nearly 190 mph, and 0 to 60 mph comes in just 4.7 seconds with the manual, 4.9 seconds with the automatic.
The 2008 DB9 coupe and Volante offer a host of creature comforts you won't find on lesser cars, including a six-disc Linn stereo, premium leather interior, walnut fascia trim, 10-way power seats with heat and three-position memory, satellite navigation, Bluetooth capability, and an umbrella holder.
The Volante's power top is made of attractive, durable material and takes just 17 seconds to go up or down. In the down position, it stows compactly beneath an attractive hard tonneau that sits flush with the body of the car, creating a seamless look front to back.
Optional equipment includes a choice of interior fascia and door trims, personalized sill plates, 15-spoke wheels, a 950-watt Linn audio system, and satellite radio. And because all DB9s are built by hand, customers can personalize their cars with any combination of exterior colors and interior leathers (more than 20 each) they want. Six top colors are available on the Volante.
Safety is paramount in the DB9, and in addition to the safety structures built into the chassis, each car comes equipped with dual-stage driver and passenger air bags and seat-mounted side air bags. Additionally, the Volante's A-pillars are reinforced to withstand massive loads, and the car also features tilt sensors; in the event of a roll-over, two rigid safety hoops deploy from the rear seat headrests.
For 2008, Aston Martin's V12-powered DB9 sees just a few changes overall. Outside, the car remains largely the same, while inside, minor accents have been updated, and a new information and entertainment system is offered. Perhaps the biggest change is to Aston Martin itself, which was sold by Ford in late 2007 to an investment consortium.
The 2008 Aston Martin DB9 is the epitome of the luxury GT. Hand-built at Aston's Gaydon facility, the DB9 is a race-bred car that easily delivers triple-digit speeds, plush interior ergonomics, an advanced chassis and suspension, and a distinctive, sexy shape in keeping with its family heritage. Available as either a 2+2 coupe or a convertible (Volante in Aston-speak), it has few rivals able to match all it has to offer.
