The DB9 was the star of the 2003 Frankfurt Motor Show where it was unveiled to the public for the very first time. This car, perhaps above any other modern Aston Martin, recaptured the imagination and spearheaded the resurgence of the British car brand. The sleek superform aluminium body was initially designed by Ian Callum but had also been significantly influenced by the next director of AM design, Hendrik Fisker. Powered by the familiar and fabulous 6.0 litre V12 engine, the coupé was capable of a top speed of 186mph and boasted 450bhp.
The DB9 bodyshell weighed 25% less than that of the DB7 but had doubled its torsional rigidity and engineering accuracy; this ensured the chassis performance matched the engine power. Aston Martin have always made the interior of their cars a very special place to be and the DB9 was no exception. The interior was beautifully tailored with the finest of materials, including Bridge of Weir leather, aluminium and wood, with customers being offered a choice of a walnut, mahogany or bamboo finish.
This lovely low mileage example is presented in Tungsten Silver with Iron Ore leather interior and is accompanied by a good service history, including a service handbook with eight stamps. The interior is nicely finished with walnut cappings on the doors and facia, satellite navigation, parking sensor and tyre pressure monitor. This is a timeless classic with exhilarating performance and with only 57,015 miles, offered through Aston Martin Newport Pagnell, this very tidy example has been described as in excellent order throughout. Aston Martin DB9’s are superb to look at and even better to drive, this one is no exception.
