Vehicle: 2005 Aston Martin DB9

I have owned most high end cars from maserati gransports 911 turbo, m5, m3, m6, CLS63 AMG benz, and many others some twice and this is in another class by itself. At 150 mph you feel confident this could easily handle 200 mph! just not in the states!

Vehicle: 2005 Aston Martin DB9 2dr Coupe (5.9L 12cyl 6A)

Great car! Fun to drive for a GT! If looking for sweet ride you can take anywhere, this is it. Comfortable and fun for long distant driving. Loves the road at high speed. Had no problems with car except for an occasional low tire warning and head-lights were replaced. They are automatic leveling and got stuck in down position. Replaced with no cost. Aston Martin Headquarters called to apologize personally for the inconvenience and gave me another Aston Martin until it was replaced. Interior is first rate with every convenience.

I purchased this car with 1200 miles and it has been a joy, the power prestige and comfort are beyond reproach. If you want a quality super car, this is the one, you can't go wrong. TD

Vehicle: 2005 Aston Martin DB9 Volante 2dr Convertible (5.9L 12cyl 6A)

It's a head turner but fun to drive even at longer distances. Not as many on the road as the Ferrari. The convertible is a pleasure after having the DB7. I love the car.

Not one of the "crowd"

Vehicle: 2005 Aston Martin DB9 2dr Coupe (5.9L 12cyl 6A)

I was driving an "03 SL500 Sport. I had ordered this silver beauty 1.5 years before they started arriving. Really a nice car, but in North Dallas, I passed 13 Sl's in 2.5 miles to work...and 8 were silver. So...Aston Martin as a little more "independent" make. I thought the beautiful but classic styling might blend in without causing the over-the-top hoopla of a Ferrari, or Lambo. WRONG. Everywhere I go it gets comments. I really rarely use the 900watt+ stereo, because I am hooked on the sound of the engine! It IS hard to stay within speed limit. This car DEMANDS that you remain engaged in your driving...even if just going to the closest 7-11. So far so good!

Martin ... aston martin

Vehicle: 2005 Aston Martin DB9 2dr Coupe (5.9L 12cyl 6A)

Defintely the most beautiful car designed by Aston Martin so far ... and one that does not disappoint in terms of handling, engine power, or finishing. Owning the Aston DB9 is a pure pleasure and it gives me a thrill to see it from the vantage point of another car driving beside it. It is a sight for sore eyes on any day, and gives the driver fantastic control and responsivness. A perfect 10 !!
