2008 Aston Martin DB9 Volante 2017-08-31T11:06:39+00:00

Project Description

OVERVIEW

There are few cars that are universally liked and admired, but the Aston Martin DB9 falls into that category without a doubt. The metallic black paint combined with the premium tan leather interior give this car a luxurious look.

As soon as you insert the unusual shaped key and hear the V12 roar to life, you’ll have a smile on your face. While the DB9 is meant to turn heads, it’s astonishingly subtle when you want it to be, quietly purring through its 6 gears. But if you switch it to manual mode and allow it to get above 3500 RPMs before shifting up with the paddle shifters, it roars.

With the convertible top down, not only will you be exposed to envious stares of those around you, you’ll be surrounded by the beautiful engine notes of a V12. For those of us that are hair conscious, the Aston allows a perfect seating position that allows you to be exposed to the elements without being constantly whipped by the wind.

Each Aston requires approximately 200 man-hours to create, which translates to a vehicle with exquisite details. Every component was thoughtfully crafted before it was allowed to be installed in a car that wore the hand placed Aston Martin badge. The DB9 has secret compartments and unconventional features hidden everywhere within the car, making you feel like a true Bond counterpart. The GPS is quietly hidden underneath a beautiful wood door on the dash and it even has an umbrella holder in the trunk, because you wouldn’t dare place it on the floor. While park, reverse, drive, and neutral are usually controlled by a shifter on the console, Aston Martin likes to do things their own way. Meaning, these controls have become buttons on the dash.

A LOOK IN THE REAR VIEW

The DB naming sequence of cars comes from the name of the owner of Aston Martin at the time, David Brown. The DB1 was introduced in 1948, and although only 15 were produced, the DB series lived on. The DB9 has been in production for 12 years, just recently coming to a stop with the release of the new DB11.

WORD ON THE STREET

“Certainly, this is a beautiful car, wonderfully styled and exquisitely detailed. The leather and wood work inside the cabin is second to none. Just getting into the car, your olfactory senses are inundated with the heavy scent of the leather.”

Roger Hart, Autoweek

“Generally, we prefer coupes, but the DB9 Volante is no poor thing to lay eyes on, top up or down. The way the fixed-roof variant’s greenhouse tapers into the tail and creates those voluptuous hips is part of the car’s perfect completion. The convertible maintains those crucial lines in back, and the loss of the C-pillar doesn’t make it less beautiful, only different. If you’re a convertible person, this is a vehicle you’ll always enjoy staring at.”

Jonathon Ramsey, Autoblog

“The DB9 still looks fresh and beautiful — elegant proportions never go out of style.”

Matt Stone, Motor Trend
