The DB9 is a blend of the classic Britishness of old-school Aston Martins with state-of-the-art supercar motoring technology. The company’s flagship model can be bought either as a convertible (‘The Volante’) or a hardtop coupe. Both versions are extremely rapid and beautiful grand tourers. Note how the sculpted body panels are made of aluminium to keep the weight low.
If you hire an Aston Martin DB9 you’ll soon discover the growling noise and sheer power of the six-liter V12 engine. This muscular unit means that you can reach 60mph from a standstill in less than four-and-a-half seconds. Though the top speed is over 180mph, the handling is so neat and agile that the big Aston is equally at home on a twisting country road as a de-restricted autobahn.
Inside, the tone is set by a classic wood and leather cabin. The hand-made quality of the DB9 makes it one of the most desirable British cars ever built. You’ll find there’s room for four inside the beautifully finished cabin. The makers claim that eight complete hides are used for each car. And don’t forget that Aston Martin was once synonymous with James Bond. Maybe 007 has tried other cars recently, but the DB9 still has an aura of the golden age of British sports cars. And if it’s any comfort, it was even crash-tested by the engineers at Volvo.
