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, Henrik 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.
Originally supplied by Aston Martin sales of Mayfair and registered on 3rd February 2005 this DB9 is finished in Tungsten with Obsidian Black interior. The 5953cc engine fired up immediately when requested and we are advised she drives with no known faults. A well stamped service book accompanies this Aston Martin, initially by Stratstone and latterly with respected marque specialist, Aston Sales of Kensington. With only two previous keepers, this DB9 is supplied with a V5C registration document and a full years MoT test certificate. This example will give any driver the buzz of Aston Martin pedigree alongside one of the most iconic sounds of any modern car with the glorious V12 engine. Attractively priced and fabulous value for money, this is the opportunity to own a superbly built British sports car without the concern of depreciation and in a car that looks equally as good today as it did in 2005.
