Avg. Price: $80,231

The 2007 Aston Martin DB9 returns with no major changes from the previous model year. However, the DB9 is a totally different car from its DB7 predecessor, and it is the first model to be assembled at Aston Martin's revolutionary new plant in Gaydon, England. This coupe is one of two available models for 2007, along with the higher priced Volante convertible.

The hand-built DB9 is the first aston Martin to be built on the lightweight bonded-aluminum chassis, which was specifically designed for this grand tourer. The result is an exceptionally light body with tremendous power reserves. The 6.0 liter all aluminum V-12 provides 450 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque, which can be sent to the rear wheels through either a six speed automatic or sic speed manual transmission. While the 3769 pound DB9 is launched from 0 to 60 in just 4.7 seconds, the light weight also greatly benefits the overall handling and agility of the car.

The feature list is what you might expect to find below an $150,000+ price tag. The DB9's hand-trimmed interior is rich with leather and one of four wood finish choices (walnut, mahogany, piano black or bamboo). The presentation is one of simple and uncluttered elegance, but a myriad of luxury and convenience features are concealed within. The DB9 comes equipped with a satellite navigation system, full memory functions, a premium 128 watt Linn audio system with a six disc auto-changer, power-folding mirrors, and a tire pressure monitor. A 950 watt audio upgrade with Dolby Pro Logic II is also available.

Since the DB9 is hand-built, it is eligible for a high level of personalization. Through what the British call "bespoke tailoring, " buyers can have their coupe or convertible made to order.

The 2007 Aston Martin DB9 Volante is a convertible version of the DB9 grand tourer. Its push-button power-folding top is made of lightweight cloth, and folds neatly into a non-intrusive tonneau cover in seventeen seconds. The Volante costs about $10,000 more than the coupe.

The Volante is powered by the same 6.0 liter all aluminum V12, which can be teamed with either a six speed automatic or six speed manual transmission. This engine makes 450 horsepower and 420 pound feet of torque available, which is enough power to rocket from 0 to 60 mph in 4.7 seconds. The quarter mile is reached in just over 13 seconds, at speeds in excess of 100 mph. The 12/19 mpg gas mileage doesn't seem so bad for such a powerful V12, thanks in part to the super-lightweight construction.

The Volante convertible variant's topless body results in a bit less rigidity. A softer suspension has beed added to the Volante, which takes something away from the overall grand touring feel. Of course, such a distinction would not be so apparent to most drivers. From the ground up, Aston Martin conceived the new DB as both a coupe and a convertible, and many considerations were made to ensure similar performance. While the Volante may not have exactly the same solid feel as coupe, both its rigidity and handling are quite exceptional for a convertible.
