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 are 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.

This beautifully presented, two owner from new, righthand drive
DB9 comes to us directly from Aston Martin in Newport Pagnell and
has a full main agent service history stamped up to 2013 and used
little since, and an MoT test certificate which expires in May
2017. The Aston Martin warranty expired in 2013. The Touchtronic
gearbox operates as it should and the options originally specified
are impressive. These include a high specification alarm alongside
a Linn audio system, European satellite navigation and blue tooth
telephony. This Midnight Blue convertible has an Atlantic Blue
soft-top with ivory headlining; the seating is Sandstorm in colour
with matching stitching and Caspian Blue carpets. Folding mirrors,
rear parking sensors and tyre pressure monitoring also add to this
modern Aston package. In good order throughout and extremely
competitively priced, this example combines both classic Aston
Martin styling with the reliability that one has come to expect
from this luxury brand.
