The sleek super-formed aluminium body of the DB9 was initially designed by Ian Callum but had also had significant influence from the next director of AM design, Hendrik Fisker. It was powered by a third-generation version of the now familiar 6.0 litre, V12 engine with a top speed of 186mph. The DB9 was the first of what was to become a long line of production Aston Martins to use VH architecture; using super-formed parts in the chassis and footwell as well as the body panels. Individual die-cast, extruded or stamped aluminium elements of the VH platform, are bonded with strong adhesives and self-piercing rivets, providing a lightweight but stiff ‘backbone’. The DB9 body shell weighed 25% less than that of the DB7 but has double its torsional rigidity. This process also allowed Aston Martin to retain high levels of engineering accuracy in producing a car at a higher volume, ensuring chassis performance to match the engine power. Aston Martins have always made the interior of their cars to be very special places. The fine detail of finishing is typified by the starter button made of glass and sand-etched with the Aston Martin wings logo.
This DB9 was manufactured in 2007, being supplied new on the 12th of January 2007 by HWM Aston Martin in Walton-on-Thames, Surrey. Fitted with the 5935cc V12 engine mated to the six-speed Touchtronic automatic gearbox, the DB9 cost £113,637 when new. Finished in Midnight blue paintwork with complementary Sand Storm leather interior upholstery, the Aston Martin has been used sparingly throughout its life, covering only 20,825 miles from new (at time of consignment) and it has had just five former keepers. Offered with the original owner’s guide which illustrates the service history (shown below), a collection of past MOTs, two keys, tracker and a current V5C.
