It is no wonder that everybody tries to produce one of these beauties. For the 2009 model year Aston Martin out did themselves and managed to develop a supercar that was better then the year earlier - if that is feasible. The 2009 DB9 is provided as a convertible and a 2+2 coupe. The convertible goes under the name of Volante - which stands for ‘flying’ in Italian. This is a great name for something that is equipped with a tremendous amount of power. The wheels are able to raise themselves from the street when you begin to test its limits. At least they feel that way. Each model are constructed with a 6.0 liter V12 engine that has the power to thrust out 470 horsepower and 443 pound feet of torque. Coupled with this engine is a six speed manual or a six speed automatic. Both of these transmissions are settled at the rear transaxle to provide better weight distribution and are established with paddle shifters.

Aston Martin grants you to select the color combinations that will blend with your style. You can find the soft top for the Volante in seven contrasting colors that include leather. Every models come standard with xenon headlamps, 19” allow wheels, navigation system, a full leather trim interior, Bluetooth connectivity, iPod interface, satellite radio, and a premium audio system that will out perform itself each time.

But with this kind of luxury and power it is worth it.
