Those who know Aston Martins also know that special words mean very special cars. That\'s why this 2012 Aston Martin DB9 Sport Edition Volante should get you excited. It\'s believed the Sport Editions are not officially promoted through regular channels and are for their loyal customers. So not only are you looking at a low-mileage and ultra-luxurious V12 drop-top, but also this one is marked as #59 of only 60.
Power, beauty, soul - it\'s the mantra of Aston Martin, and this coupe embodies all of it. There has always been an aggressive elegance about an Aston Martin, even before James Bond drove one on screen. The DB9 has shown a sleekness that is still echoed in today\'s cars. That\'s why it\'s already a classic. With this in mind, it\'s great to see a car like this one that has averaged 2,200 miles annually... and it certainly looks the part of a low-mileage and well-respected machine. The factory took care when applying the Jet Black paint, sunlight loves to dance across the swept-back lines of this coupe. The headlight covers recall some of the best classic racers and remain crystal clear today. And the red brake calipers are just the right hint of aggressive color. As mentioned before, the Sport Edition is a real treat offered at the end of the model year. There are some individual specifications owners get to make when ordering, but one special piece that unites them all is the set of special 19-inch wheels. These 10-spoke alloys are painted black and machined around the edges to give the wheels the look of a pinstripe suit.
Even the doors on the DB9 are part of its charm. They don\'t just swing out like a standard door, and the Lamborghini-style scissors would be too uncouth for a dignified machine. So you get this elegant swan motion that arches upward for easier accessibility and a cool showing of class. Once inside, you realize what grand touring comfort is all about. The Sandstorm tan looks terrific against the exterior black, and in fact, the black is tastefully mixed all throughout the interior. You see it on the contrast stitching of the seats, the plush carpeting, and even the piano block of the center console. It makes for the extra thoughtfulness that lets you know an Aston has a soul. And of course, like a true Aston, there\'s a ton of luxury features, including power seats, keyless entry/alarm, power locks, power mirrors, dual airbags, side airbags, power steering, a tilt/telescopic steering column, cruise control, and navigation screen that raises from the top of the dash. The radio is an AM/FM/CD/XM with aux input, and it\'s your gateway to the premium Bang & Olufsen BeoSound stereo speakers. And because you have a power convertible top and power windows, you never have to leave the driver\'s seat to go from enclosed luxury to a wind-in-your-hair experience. Plus, with the automatic A/C climate control and heated seats, you and your passenger get to dial-in an individual level of top-down comfort all year long. Plus, there\'s an extra tinge of performance when you grasp the leather-wrapped sports steering wheel, push the crystal key, and see the gauges dance as you hear the motor roar to life.
The original V12 is part of the craftsman build, and because this has spent its life so far as a cherished toy, everything under the hood still looks fresh. But don\'t let this ultra-clean presentation keep you from adding miles to the odometer. After all, this convertible is a true driver\'s machine. The fuel-injected 5.9-liter V8 sings a 470 hp symphony. You control it all through Aston\'s Sportshift six-speed that has F1-style paddle-activated electronically-operated shifts. There\'s even a fully automatic mode for grand touring comfort. As you look at the undercarriage photos, you\'ll see nothing but flat panels for better aerodynamics - another race-inspired piece that proves how serious a performance machine this is. You\'ll also spot all the right features, like the
