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, 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 305km/h (189mph) with 60mph attainable from a standing start in a neck-snapping 4.6 seconds.

First registered on the 14th January 2005 and finished in the beautiful and rare colour combination of Ghillies Green Metallic with contrasting Sandstrom Connolly leather interior and six-speed paddleshift semi-automatic transmission. The car's features include powerfold mirrors, rear parking sensors, satellite navigation, air conditioning, Linn stereo system, electrically adjustable and heated seats, fully adjustable steering column, heated rear and front screens and fetching multi-spoke alloy wheels. The car is presented to auction with two keys, Aston Martin battery conditioner, tyre inflation kit and a history file that includes receipts, MOTs and original service book.
