Lot 232 - 2006 Aston Martin DB9 Volante
|Odometer reading||63,000 miles|
|Estimate||£20,000 - £25,000|
The DB9 was the star of the 2003 Frankfurt Motor show where it was unveiled to the public for the very first time. The DB9 was powered by a third-generation version of the now familiar 6.0 litre, V12 and had a top speed of 186mph. It was the first of what was to become a long line of production Aston Martins to use VH architecture, using 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 were bonded with strong adhesives and self-piercing rivets to make a lightweight but stiff backbone. Aston Martins have always made the interior of their cars to be very special places. Beautifully tailored with the finest of materials, the DB9 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.
Originally registered on 1st March 2006 this Aston Martin has had two previous keepers and comes with a very good service history. It has multi-spoke alloy wheels and we are advised it drives well, although the airbag light is on. The vendor has also asked us to point out that the Sat Nav and radio are currently not working. The paintwork will also require some attention. These stylish convertibles are great looking cars and offer style, presence and performance all in one package. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a current MoT test certificate valid until 14th September 2023, this is a fabulous vehicle for the summer ahead.
Interested parties should note that the airbag light is illuminated on this car.
