BaT Auction: 2006 Aston Martin DB9 Volante
This 2006 Aston Martin DB9 Volante was purchased new by the seller from Miller Motors in Greenwich, Connecticut and shows 51,474 miles. The car is powered by a naturally aspirated 6.0-liter V12 mated to a 6-speed ZF automatic transmission with paddle shifters and is said to remain stock. Recent service included installation of four tires and fresh fluids as well as replacement of the rear brakes at 43k miles and the fronts at 49k. This DB9 is offered with a Carfax report, an Aston Martin-branded car cover, service records, and a clean California title in the seller’s name.
The DB9 featured an extruded aluminum spaceframe, forged aluminum double-wishbone suspension, and aluminum exterior panels aside from a composite hood and fenders. This example is finished in dark metallic grey, and over 150 pictures detailing the paint condition are provided in the gallery below. The electric soft top incorporates a defrosted glass rear window. The seller notes paintwork around the convertible top cover.
The Volante weighed approximately 130 lb. more than the DB9 coupe according to Aston Martin, and featured additional structural bracing. Factory 19″ wheels wear staggered Bridgestone Potenza tires installed about 350 miles ago according to the seller. The rear brake pads and rotors were replaced at 43k miles by Los Gatos Luxury in California, and the fronts at 49k miles.
The tan leather cabin is accented with burl wood trim on the door panels and center console. Equipment includes dual power seats, automatic climate control, navigation, a multi-function steering wheel, xenon headlamps, power windows/mirrors/locks, and more. A radar director is mounted in the center console.
The odometer displays approximately 51,474 miles, all of which have been added by the seller. The ZF transmission features Touchtronic 2 technology that blips the throttle on downshifts as well as paddle shifters behind the steering wheel.
The 6.0-liter V12 was rated at 449 horsepower with 420 lb-ft of torque when new, and the 6-speed transmission routes power to the rear wheels through a limited-slip differential. Service in 2018 reportedly included replacement of various fluids.
The Carfax report indicates longterm California history and a rear-end incident in June 2013, which was a low-speed collision resulting in repair of a cosmetic smudge on the rear bumper according to the seller. A California emissions test was last passed in 2015.
