Aston Martin DB9 Volante, First Drive 2009

Ford rescued Aston Martinfrom the bit load. After couple of years and investing many millions, it’s a matter of shame that the Blue Oval could not able to enjoy the result because Aston Martin is on a top gear. If we go to the near past, we see that in 2007, a private investment group bought the Aston and this private group was headed by David Richards. A number of changes in the model lineup were brought out by proliferating, using a high-tech and including Rapide sedan. Aston remains in the front line while choosing automobile for the world’s famous and favorite spy.

It is not easily believable that the DB9 passing five years but still its light, flexible VH architecture, construction is outstanding. If you take a look at the DB9 you would found it still fresh and nice, the style and design would never be out of date. As this model of automobile are designed for sportier DBS range, the edgier and they also received a change in the physical appearance for model yr 2009. In October 2005, we tested DB9 it struck us; we found it so pretty that it made us in puzzled condition. Though it had great horsepower (450 hp) V-12 was powerful but there were some negligible problems and finally we tried to give its updated version to minimize the problems.

“New and improved” that is our favorite spot located under hood and spa treatment of DB9, began there. A compression bump was placed from 10.3 to 10.9:1 instead of changing the 5.9 liter V-12. To reduce windage a revised oil sump was attached and more torque was engaged to lower the rev range. To get quicker and to change low speed gear a new hydraulic control unit was set up and finally we got the Aston Martin. Later, the retune was done to make it DB9 Coupe a sportier style and overall refurbishment took place on the Volante. Some changes were brought out here in the outfit like in the side door mirrors (took from the DBS) and so on.  The V-12 light is not as rough as the DBS or Vanquish but having brittle sound than old DB9. You would find that DB9 is smarter and robust than others and this design is more acceptable and fabulous than we tested before. DB9 is fine in the smooth road but exhibits more harshness than we could expect in rough surfaces. Only $175,700 was stickered in the 2005 tester. But in the new one costs only $204,130; per year an average increase is $7100. DBS containing 510 horsepower is just found in a new volante model.
