The DB9 was the star of the 2003 Frankfurt Motor show, where it was unveiled to the public for the very first time. The DB9 was powered by a third generation version of the now familiar 6.0 litre V12, with a top speed of 186mph. It was the first of what was to become a long line of production Aston Martins to use VH architecture; Superformed parts were applied in the chassis and footwell as well as the body panels. The individual die-cast, extruded or stamped aluminium elements of the VH platform are bonded with strong adhesives and self-piercing rivets to make a lightweight but stiff backbone. Aston Martins have always made the interior of their cars to be very special places. Beautifully tailored with the finest of materials, the DB9 uses Bridge of Weir leather, aluminium and wood. A design now 20 years in production, the DB9 is very much a modern classic and one which shaped the direction of Aston-Martin for many years to come.

Of the total production of DB9 Volante models, under 15% were specified from new with a manual transmission. For the UK market, the figures narrow significantly further. Of the 1,787 examples built for the UK market, only 36 were specified with a 6-speed manual gearbox. And of those 36 examples, this is the only chassis finished in the classic shade of Aston Martin Racing Green. This highly attractive example is finished is complemented by a Parliament Green leather interior with Absynthe Green stitching, Westminster Green convertible roof, and mahogany wood veneer capping to the doors and fascia.

A 2007 model year car, the DB9 was delivered to its first owner in December of 2006. The Aston-Martin was serviced at the main dealer seven times between 2008 and 2015, and under new ownership serviced by a specialist in 2019 at 20,423 miles, shortly after which the nation went into Covid lockdown. The DB9 was dry-stored until being serviced once more in 2022, which included fluids, filters, a four-wheel alignment check and regassing of the air conditioning.

Now showing 21,000 miles recorded, and with four owners from new, this striking and unique Aston-Martin is ready to join its next classic car collection. The DB9 model is the car which put Aston Martin back on the map, and we feel this unique Volante is a must for the true collector.
