Aston Martin DB9


The Aston Martin DB9 is a GT sports coupé that was launched in 2004 and was the first car to be built in Aston Martin’s brand new factory in Gaydon, Warwickshire. Designed by Ian Callum and Henrik Fisker, it was the 9th car to follow the DB, or David Brown, marque, although there never was a DB8.

There are two variants of the DB9: the Coupé and the convertible ‘Volanté’, each producing 470 bhp from it 6 litre V12 engine – the same engine that was used in the Vanquish, except slightly tuned down.

With the Gaydon facility being able to produce 5000 cars per year, waiting lists were soon established, as the demand for the DB9 was tremendous.
