Overview

The DB9 remains offered in coupe and convertible (Volante) forms. With the Volante, a little trunk space is sacrificed and refinement for a well-insulated soft top that can tuck itself away in about 17 seconds.
2016,
2016,In either case, the DB9's 470-horsepower, 5.9L V12 engine does not disappoint--both in its power and its soundtrack. The engine produces up to 443 pound-feet of torque and is hooked up to a 6-speed automatic transmission which includes a limited-slip differential. Aston Martin claims a top speed of 190 mph, and a 0-60-mph time of 4.6 seconds.
2016,
2016,The DB9 manages to have both a forgiving, smooth and surprisingly comfortable ride, thanks to an adaptive damping system (with a separate performance-oriented Sport Mode) and specially tuned suspension bushings, in addition to the aluminum double-wishbone suspension layout in front and in back. Z-rated performance tires on 19-inch wheels are standard and a speed-sensitive hydraulic power-steering system provides confidence whether in the parking garage or at triple-digit speeds. Strong stopping power is included on all DB9s, with ventilated discs on all four wheels plus 4-piston calipers.
2016,
2016,The cabin is trimmed in hand-stitched leather and real wood, while the center console itself is made out of zinc. A new Bang & Olufsen sound system is available and Bluetooth connectivity is included.
2016,
2016,Other interior appointments include satellite radio, a hard-disk-based navigation system, heated seats, rear parking sensors and automatic climate control. The Volante model includes an automatically deployable roll-bar system for rollover protection.
2016,
2016,Customization is a key part of ownership for cars such as the DB9. A wide range of interior wood trims are offered, including mahogany, bamboo and Tamo Ash woodgrains or Piano Black or bright-finish schemes. There are also showier graphite-finish wheels on offer.
