*** Lot Amendment - Private Plate NOT Included *** Launched in 2003 as successor to the DB7, the DB9 was the first model to be built at Aston Martin's new factory at Gaydon, Warwickshire where production continues today. Like its predecessor, the DB9 was styled by Ian Callum with the finishing touches being applied by Henrik Fisker. The aluminium chassis is known as the 'VH' platform, a reference to its vertical and horizontal adaptability. The DB9 is powered by a development of the 5.9-litre, 48-valve, V12 engine found in the DB7 Vantage, which produced 470bhp initially, an output sufficient to propel the aerodynamic coupé to a top speed of 189mph with 60mph arriving from a standing start in a dramatic 4.6 seconds. First registered in May 2007 and finished in the striking combination of Meteorite Silver with a Sandstorm interior, this stunning DB9 has covered just over 16,000 miles from new. The vendor informs us that the Aston has enjoyed full main dealer service history under its four owners, with the last service completed by Aston Martin Newcastle in April of this year. Offered to auction with an MOT until 26th December 2017, three keys, two alarm fobs, old MOTs, its service records, and a folder of receipts, this is a superb example of one of Aston’s most accomplished Grand Tourers.
