Aston Martin DB9: Buying guide and review (2004-2016)

Aston Martin DB9: Buying guide and review (2004-2016) Classic and Performance Car
Aston Martin DB9 Aston Martin DB9 Aston Martin DB9 Aston Martin DB9
The DB7’s direct replacement was so much of a leap forward that Aston skipped the number 8 and jumped straight to DB9. At least that was the line thrown out by Aston Martin’s PR machine at the time, and it’s testament to the all-round brilliance of the DB9 that the motoring media were more than happy to swallow it. (In truth, the badging was a Ford directive to avoid a clash with Jaguar’s conceptually similar XK8.)
 
Whatever, when the world’s press descended on Nice in March 2004 for the DB9’s driving debut, they were attending arguably the most important launch in the company’s history. Not only was the DB9 the replacement for the DB7 – then the marque’s best-selling car yet – it also embodied a whole new manufacturing regime that would underpin the future of the company and its new factory. It simply had to succeed.
 
We’d seen extensive use of aluminium in an Aston’s superstructure before, but the original Vanquish was a complex construction of aluminium and carbonfibre and of course still largely hand-built at Newport Pagnell. The DB9 embraced entirely modern manufacturing processes and the so-called VH (Vertical Horizontal) platform – essentially a way of spinning a whole range of cars from the same basic structure and many shared components.
 
The DB9 was the first of the new breed, its bonded aluminium monocoque and all-wishbone suspension owing absolutely nothing to the DB7. It wasn’t entirely new though. The magnificent 5.9-litre V12 engine was carried over from the DB7 Vantage, though substantially updated with revised crankshaft, cams, inlet and exhaust manifolds and management system. Peak outputs were 450bhp at 6000rpm and 420lb ft @ 5000rpm (compared with 420bhp and 400lb ft for the DB7 Vantage). 
 
New(ish) for the DB9 was Touchtronic 2, a six-speed version of the five-speed ZF torque-converter auto from the DB7 Vantage but now with the facility to flick between ratios using paddles mounted on the steering column – a big improvement on the DB7’s fiddly wheel-mounted buttons. It even gave throttle-blips on downshifts, aping the ‘F1’ system on contemporary Ferraris. A six-speed Graziano manual was also available, and both ’boxes were rear-mounted, improving weight distribution. 
 
Most definitely all-new was the DB9’s body, shaped initially by Ian Callum and, after the Scot had left to join Jaguar, refined by his successor, Henrik Fisker. It took themes first seen on the DB7 (and subsequently developed on the Vanquish) and moulded them into something thoroughly contemporary and yet – as the passing years have proved – timelessly beautiful. Details like the flush door handles, the ‘swan-wing’ effect of the doors opening, and the chronograph-like faces of the instruments added to the DB9’s aura of specialness.
 
Which one to buy?
 
At first the DB9 was available only as coupé; the open Volante model followed in 2005. In late 2006 (for the ’07 model year) came a range of updates, including redesigned seats. More significantly, the same year saw the introduction of the Sports Pack for the coupé – 
a package of chassis upgrades that won wide acclaim. 
 
The obvious visual change was a striking new five-spoke ‘diamond-turned’ wheel in forged aluminium that shaved more than 1kg of unsprung weight from each corner. Underneath, the ride height was lowered a smidge, the spring rates increased, the dampers retuned, and the original composite undertray was replaced with an aluminium one, which aided structural stiffness. The combination delivered markedly improved ride and handling with noticeably lighter, keener steering. 
 
The good news was that as well as being an option on new cars, it was also possible to retro-fit the Sports Pack to earlier examples, though the five-spoke alloys could also be purchased separately, so it shouldn’t be taken as read that a car that has them fitted will have the Sports Pack. A dealer or specialist with access to the dealer communication system will be able to check if it’s a genuine Sports Pack car.
 
The next step-change was for the 2009 model year, with a power upgrade to 470bhp and a number of detail changes including a new centre console taken from the DBS and the arrival of Bilstein dampers, which gave a more supple edge to the ride. For 2010, Sports Pack Plus saw the introduction of two-stage adaptive damping, which became standard from 2011MY.
 
A few special editions to be aware of: in 2007 Aston announced a limited-run DB9 to celebrate the DBR9’s class win at Le Mans. The DB9 LM was a Sports Pack car with a cosmetic overhaul that included Sarthe Silver metallic paint, Obsidian Black leather with Coarse Red stitching, a circuit map stitched into the centre armrest – and rather un-DB9-like bright red facia trim and door cappings! 
 
Other specials you might come across are the Sport Edition and Luxury Edition. Sold in 2011, they had slightly more kit but were mechanically standard.
 
Finally, late 2012 saw the launch of the thoroughly updated ‘new DB9’ for 2013 model year, power rising to 510bhp, accompanied by a general sharpening of the looks and all manner of specification changes, including the fitment of carbon-ceramic brakes as standard. 
 
Very few DB9s were specified with the manual gearbox, and after a few years it was deleted, so it’s a bit of a rarity. Although it’s the same gearbox as the V8 Vantage, it’s a single-plate rather than a twin-plate clutch so it isn’t as smooth, and it’s also quite a heavy clutch, but today those cars are quite sought-after by enthusiasts.

Common problems
 
• Service intervals are 10,000 miles or 12 months – most cars get an annual service and if you budget £1000 a year for routine work you won’t be far off. 

• The good news is that the V12 engine is very strong, and serious faults are rare. The most common problem is with the coil packs, which suffer from heat damage and occasionally from water ingress causing shorting. It’s an expensive job to replace them (around £600 per bank) so check the engine pulls cleanly and smoothly. Any misfiring points to problems.

• The vast majority of DB9s have the paddleshift auto, which is generally robust and trouble-free. 

• The life of the clutch on the manual cars varies hugely depending on use, from as little as 15,000 miles to as much as 30,000-plus.  

• Check for corrosion – the body may be largely aluminium but you may well find bubbling on the edges of doors and other panels, and if it’s extensive you’ll be looking at expensive rectification. 

• Underneath, check carefully for accident damage: best advice is get the car on a ramp and remove the undertray, though a lot of the front structure is visible under the bonnet.

• On early cars there should be orange glue between the panels, which should all be crisp and clean and straight. Volantes sometime suffer water ingress in the boot, so check there too. 

• Check that the hi-fi works – the early Linn systems were troublesome; the later Alpine units are the ones to have. The early sat-navs may seem a bit clunky, but the experts are agreed it’s better to have one than not.

Summary and prices
 
So that’s the DB9, the consummate GT of the Aston range and now something of a bargain. A full service history with Aston Martin dealers and recognised specialists is a good starting point. Some early, high-mileage cars have slipped out of the network and though they appear bargains at £30k or even less, they are best avoided. 
 
£30-£35k buys an ’04 car with around 50,000 miles and a proper history, while £40k buys a nice ’05 example. An ’09 car with the extra power and various upgrades starts at around £50k, while top money for a pre-13MY DB9 is c£70k.

  • 304 - 2005 Rolls-Royce Phantom

    POA POA

    An historic model in the continuing history of the Rolls-Royce marque, the Phantom was the first all-new design to be introduced by the company following its takeover by BMW. Produced at a new factory near Goodwood in Sussex, the Phantom revived a great name from Rolls-Royce's past that had always been synonymous with unrestrained luxury. In keeping with the tradition established by previous Phantoms, the newcomer was a very large motor car, outstretching the old Silver Seraph (the last Crewe-built Rolls-Royce) by 18" while boasting a radiator shell 4" taller. Priced at around £260,000 at time of launch, it was also 40% more expensive. At 140", the new car's wheelbase was only fractionally shorter than that of the superseded Phantom VI that had ceased production in the 1990s; gone however, was the old pushrod V8 engine, its place being taken by an all-new 48-valve, V12 of 6.7 litres capacity. Despite being normally aspirated, the latter produced 460bhp, comfortably exceeding the old engine's maximum when turbo-charged, albeit at a high 5,300 revolutions. This abundance of power was transmitted to the rear axle via a six-speed automatic gearbox while air-sprung suspension and automa

    POA POA

    Designed by Ian Callum and Henrik Fisker, the Aston Martin DB9 was first revealed to the motoring press and public at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2003, the exceptional Aston Martin DB9 promised to be one of the most sought after supercars of the decade. Henrik Fisker's flowing design retained all the good looks of its predecessor, the highly acclaimed DB7. Weight was kept low by the use of aluminium and composites for the bodywork while power from the V12 was a healthy 450bhp, which provided the Aston with acceleration to 100mph from standstill in only 10 seconds, then on to a near 190mph maximum speed. Weight distribution was a perfect 50:50 thanks to the front-mid engine layout with a rear-mounted sequential transmission. The DB9 was the first Aston Martin to be built at the Gaydon facility in Warwickshire. This excellent Aston Martin DB9 has only covered 52,200 miles since being delivered new in 2005. Finished in gunmetal grey with burgundy leather interior, this DB9 has a full service history being serviced every other year with the last one less than 300 miles ago; at the same time the coil packs were replaced.

  • 259 - 2005 Aston Martin DB9

    POA POA

    The DB9 was the star of the 2003 Frankfurt Motor show where it was unveiled to the public for the very first time. The sleek superformed aluminium body was initially designed by Ian Callum but had also been significantly influenced by the next director of AM design, Hendrik Fisker. The DB9 was powered by a third generation version of the now familiar 6.0 litre V12 and has 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; using Superformed parts 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. The DB9 body shell weighed 25% less than that of the DB7 but has double its torsional rigidity. This process also allowed Aston Martin to retain high levels of engineering accuracy in producing a car at a higher volume ensuring chassis performance to match the engine power. 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 We

  • 300 - 2005 Lamborghini Murciélago Roadster

    POA POA

    The Murciélago is an all-wheel drive, mid-engined supersports car. With an angular design and an exceptionally low slung body, the highest point of the roof is just under four feet above the ground. One of the vehicle's most distinguishing features is its scissor doors which lends to the extreme image. First-generation Murciélagos, produced between 2001 and 2006, were powered by a Lamborghini V12 that traces its roots back to the company's beginnings in the 1960s. The rear differential is integrated with the engine itself with a viscous coupling centre differential providing drive to the front wheels. Power is delivered through a six-speed manual transmission. The suspension uses an independent double-wishbone design and bodywork features carbon fibre, steel and aluminium parts. The rear spoiler and the active air intakes integrated into the car's shoulders are electromechanically controlled, deploying automatically only at high speeds in an effort to maximize both aerodynamic and cooling efficiency. The Murciélago Roadster was introduced in 2004. Primarily designed to be an open top car, it employed a manually attached soft roof as cover from adverse weather. The designer used the
