2010 Aston Martin DB9 review: Our expert's take

Vehicle Overview
The Aston Martin DB9 comes in coupe and convertible (Volante) forms and is powered by a 6.0-liter V-12 engine that generates 470 horsepower. Competitors include the Ferrari F430 and Lamborghini Gallardo.

New for 2010
There are no significant changes for 2010.

Exterior
A long aluminum hood sits above a familiar Aston Martin grille, and there are side strakes on the front quarter panels. The DB9’s rear haunches are wide and curvaceous, and its profile features a prominent trunk. “Swan wing” doors rise at a 12-degree angle for easier access.

  • 19-inch wheels
  • Aluminum and lightweight composite body panels
  • Magnesium steering column and inner doorframe
  • Volante’s fabric top folds underneath a hard tonneau cover that sits flush with the bodywork
  • Sensors can detect a potential rollover and deploy a roll bar (Volante)
  • Aston Martin says the windshield pillars can withstand twice the car’s body weight
  • Front parking sensors; rear sensors are optional
  • LEDs in the door handles illuminate for easy location at night

Interior
The DB9 offers 2+2 seating that features leather with walnut, mahogany, piano black, Tamo Ash or bamboo trim. A center console constructed from die-cast zinc has a painted silver finish. To start the engine, the driver must press a clear glass button. The tachometer dial runs counterclockwise and has no redline. Instead, a red warning symbol appears at various engine speeds, depending on ambient temperature and engine mileage.

  • Bluetooth connectivity
  • MP3 jack
  • iPod connectivity
  • Optional satellite radio
  • Standard audio system with 700 watts
  • Available Bang & Olufsen stereo
  • Multilingual information system includes Russian, Greek and Chinese

Under the Hood

  • ZF six-speed automatic transmission with magnesium paddle shifters
  • Available six-speed manual gearbox
  • Coupe’s top speed is 190 mph
  • Rear-mounted gearbox helps achieve 50/50 weight distribution
