The Volante convertible retained the same basic VH platform of the DB9, stiffened to maintain chassis rigidity. Rollover protection is provided by strengthened windshield pillars and a pair of “pop-up” hoops behind the rear seats, which cannot be disabled and will break the car’s rear window when deployed. Ride and handling characteristics at cruising speeds were enhanced by somewhat softer springs and specially tuned anti-roll bars front and rear. The DB9 Volante’s folding top requires just 17 seconds to be raised or lowered and the Volante’s weight was held down to just 130 additional pounds.
The DB9 coupe and Volante share the same semi-automatic and automatic gearboxes and engine; however, the Volante is speed-limited to a cop-baiting 165 mph to retain the soft-top’s integrity at speed. As for the DB9 coupe, the Volante delivered 450 horsepower and peak torque of 420 lbs-ft. Despite the Volante’s additional weight, 0-60 acceleration was only slightly blunted at 4.9 seconds.
Featuring a sinister Galaxy Black exterior finish over black leather upholstery with smart red contrasting stitching, this outstanding 2009 DB9 Volante has travelled only an approximate 13,000 miles and remains virtually “as new.” Including a wind deflector and a complete set of books, it also benefits from a recently-performed service. Best of all, this already rare DB9 Volante is rarer still with its highly sporting 6-speed manual gearbox. Simply put, this outstanding modern ‘Supercar’ is one of Aston Martin’s greatest creations, in the most desirable Volante convertible style!
