Aston Martin introduced the DB9 in 2005, and the response from both the press and the public was overwhelming. For 2009, the DB9 has maintained all of that luster; both the model and the Aston brand are as popular as ever.
2016,The DB9 is available as either a 2+2 coupe or 2+2 convertible, called the Volante. Both are built on Aston's proprietary Vertical/Horizontal (VH) chassis, a highly advanced bonded aluminum structure that provides immense structural rigidity. Also, both the coupe and Volante are powered by a more powerful 470-horsepower, all-aluminum 6.0L V12 that produces an improved 433 ft-lbs of torque and both cars can be ordered with either a six-speed manual or Touchtronic automatic. Either DB9 is capable of nearly 190 mph and 0 to 60 mph comes in just 4.6 seconds.
2016,The 2009 DB9 coupe and Volante offer a host of creature comforts you won't find on lesser cars, including a six-disc Linn stereo, premium leather interior, walnut fascia trim, 10-way power seats with heat and three-position memory, satellite navigation, Bluetooth capability, and an umbrella holder.
2016,The Volante's power top is made of attractive, durable material and takes just 17 seconds to go up or down. In the down position, it stows compactly beneath an attractive hard tonneau that sits flush with the body of the car, creating a seamless look front to back.
2016,Optional equipment includes a choice of interior fascia and door trims, personalized sill plates and 10 and 20-spoke wheels. And because all DB9s are built by hand, customers can personalize their cars with any combination of exterior colors and interior leathers (more than 20 each) they want. Six top colors are available on the Volante.
2016,Safety is paramount in the DB9, and in addition to the safety structures built into the chassis, each car comes equipped with dual-stage driver and passenger air bags and seat-mounted side air bags. Additionally, the Volante's A-pillars are reinforced to withstand massive loads, and the car also features tilt sensors; in the event of a roll-over, two rigid safety hoops deploy from the rear seat headrests.
