The DB9 remains one of the world’s most desirable cars. Wipe the drool. Wipe it.The Aston Martin DB9 is offered in 2+2 coupe and convertible body styles. The drop-top version is known as the Volante, which for those who skipped Italian 101 means “flying.” All DB9s are powered by a 6.0-liter V12 that produces 470 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque. A six-speed manual or six-speed automatic with paddle shifters are available, and both transmissions are located at the rear transaxle for better weight distribution.The car that began one of the greatest comebacks in recent automotive history.

Some 470bhp makes for a 4.8 second 0-62mph time and 186mph if you’ve got enough room. The six-speed, paddle-override ZF auto is also supreme at making those shifts work for you and if that isn’t enough, it sounds like it’s doing 200mph when you  . There’s plenty of space for pilots in the front, and not so much in the rear, but who wants a mistress with children anyway? Makes for supreme fast-attack cruising, but the car feels big on back roads and you’ll be forever stopping for fuel.The Aston Martin DB9 comes with a healthy options list and a vast selection of customizable color combinations. The Volante’s soft top can be had in seven different colors, while leather is available in so many shades that even Prince could find one that’s too garish. All DB9s come standard with 19-inch wheels, xenon headlamps, an abundance of leather interior trim, a navigation system, Bluetooth connectivity and a premium audio system with six-CD changer, satellite radio and an iPod interface. Aside from the slew of options . start it up.



If you want to look like a million dollars, then be prepared to pay for it. Low teens for mpg, huge group 20 insurance and standard (read hefty) depreciation now the sugar rush of newness has worn off the market make the DB9 an expensive car to own.
