Refined, elegant, a beast of a rocket to drive.

A blast to drive - never had so much fun with any car. People stop and stare - perfect blend of style and performance, class.


A wonderful, wonderful, wonderful car.

Having wanted one of these cars most of my life, I finally managed to get one. I was not disappointed. The DB9 is a head-turner, there is nothing else to say. It is blisteringly fast yet stable as they come on the road, right up to the end of the speedometer. People complain a bit about the rear seats but to be honest they're not really meant to be used are they? The only complaint I might have is that the DB9 must have the worst, truly awful navigation system invented. Apart from being absolutely hopeless, it is horrible to use too. You'd be better off with a paper map (remember those??) Whoever chose to install this particular Navsys in a car of this calibre should be first taken to a mental institution, then shot. But really, this is the very best car you can buy if you are into classy cars. It's not cheap to run but I really don't care. Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful!


Prettiest car on the road.

I get more compliments on the Aston Martin than any car I have owned. I feel like James Bond driving it. Car has plenty of power and handles great.
