Luxury Car Hire Vehicle Guide : Aston Martin : Aston Martin DB9

 

Aston Martin DB9

Aston Martin DB9

The Aston Martin DB9 is a grand tourer launched by Aston Martin in 2004.

DB9 comes in two variants; coupé and "Volante" convertible, each producing 470 bhp (350 kW/477 PS) coming from a 6.0L V12 engine, originally taken from its sister car the V12 Vanquish. The car has an artificial neural network implemented at the hardware level to detect engine misfires.

The Aston Martin DB9 Volante is the convertible version of the DB9 coupe. It is built by hand in limited numbers and has enhanced styling. It is powered by the same 5.9 litre, DOHC 48 valve V12 as the DB9 and is completed with 450 bhp (331 kW) and a top speed of 186 mph (300 km/h). Because it is a convertible it will do 0-60 mph in 4.9 seconds, two-tenths of a second slower than the hard top. The Volante is taller than the hardtop, standing at 51.2 inches (1,300 mm) compared to 50.1 inches (1,270 mm). The transmission options are either the 6 speed manual or the 6 speed TipTronic II automatic.

In the beginning of 2008, both the coupé and Volante were facelifted. The engine was tweaked to produce 470 hp (350 kW/480 PS) (up from 450), and the centre console was adjusted to match more closely with the newer DBS model. It also gained the key and start-up procedure of the DBS, namely, the Emotional Control Unit.
