2005 Aston Martin DB9 Volante
Reg. Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: TBA
Make: Aston Martin
Model: DB9 Volante
Launched at the 2003 Frankfurt motor show, the exceptional Aston Martin DB9 promised to be one of the most sought after supercars of the decade. Henrik Fisker’s flowing design retained all the good looks of its predecessor, the highly acclaimed DB7. Weight was kept down by the use of aluminium and composites for the bodywork, while power from the V12 was a healthy 450bhp. This provided the Aston with acceleration to 100mph from standstill in only 10 seconds, then on to a near 190mph maximum speed. Weight distribution was a perfect 50:50 thanks to the front-mid engine layout with rear mounted sequential transmission.
This fine example of a DB9 Volante comes in silver with black leather interior colour combination. Described as being in excellent condition throughout, the car has a full service history with a file of bills and documentation to match. Described on their release date as the best looking car of the last decade, DB9s are becoming quite the investible modern classic. Great to look at and supported by the lovely rumbling V12 they are a joy to own.
