In 2006’s Casino Royale, the first Bond film to star Daniel Craig as the indefatigable spy, an Aston Martin DBS was featured. The DBS was a derivation of Aston Martin’s extremely successful DB9, a fine example of which we have right now at Beverly Hills Car Club, a 2007 Aston Martin DB9 with 75,686 miles on the odometer and finished in Meteorite Silver, beautifully complemented with a Red interior.
This exquisite supercar is a true embodiment of luxury and performance, boasting a sleek and timeless design that is sure to turn heads wherever it goes.

Equipped with a paddle-shifted automatic transmission, 6.0-liter V12 engine, power steering, brake calipers with ‘Aston Martin’ script, dual exhaust outlet, steering wheel with mounted controls, ‘DB9’ badging, 19-inch multi-spoke alloy wheels, and Michelin tires.

Notably, this particular model features unique hood vents and fender vents, adding a touch of sportiness to its already captivating appearance. Additional convenience features include air conditioning, power-adjustable exterior mirrors, electrically adjustable front seats, power windows, cruise control, navigation system, drink holders, a glove box, courtesy lights, AM/FM radio, and sun visors with vanity mirrors.

The clean CARFAX report shows a history in the dry desert state of Nevada and sunny California, further adding to the desirability of this vehicle. British sports cars are constantly rising in value and this is an excellent opportunity to acquire this hand-built Aston Martin DB9 that is mechanically sound.

This grand tourer will get you there in style. The first car to be built in Aston Martin’s new factory at Gaydon in Warwickshire was the DB9 -direct successor to the DB7. The new car was considered to be such an advance on the old Aston Martin decided a sequential numbering would be inappropriate, hence it is not titled DB8.

The DB9 launched to acclaim in 2003 at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Powered by a V12 engine, this was the first Aston Martin to be developed on the VH (Vertical/Horizontal) Platform which underpinned all Gaydon-produced cars.

Car critics rated the DB9 coupé and Volante well, praising the car’s luxurious interior and exterior design. On the British automotive show Top Gear, the DB9 was thought of highly. Notably, on the show’s ‘Cool Wall’ segment, the presenters called the DB9 ‘too cool’ for the wall and gave it its own category, ‘The DB9 Fridge’, a mini-refrigerator containing the car’s card.

The Aston Martin DB9 was all new, designed from the ground up, the fruit of a million-mile test program that had seen prototypes proved in locations as diverse as Death Valley in the USA, inside the Arctic Circle in Sweden and on the high-speed test track at Nardo in Italy. Other tests had taken place on Ford’s renowned Lommel proving ground in Belgium, and at the Volvo crash test safety center in Sweden.

Amazingly, DB9 was such an advance over DB7 that its bodyshell weighed 25 per cent less yet had twice the torsional rigidity, thanks to its aluminum hood, roof and rear wings and composite construction front wings and trunk lid.

Made to follow the DB7 model – but with its comfortably futuristic lines a vast progression on its predecessor – the DB9 was, according to Aston Martin’s initial press release, ‘a contemporary version of classic DB design elements and characteristics’.

It retains the traditional Aston Martin grill and side strakes, and its design attempts to keep the lines simple and refined. The trunk of the car is pronounced, like that of the DB4 and DB5. At the front, DB9 is without a separate nose cone, and has no visible bumpers.

Production of the DB9 ended after 12 years in 2016, having been replaced by the DB11, which used an all-new platform and engine.

But on September 11 2015, a year before the end of this run, Aston Martin announced, to tie in with the release of the James Bond Spectre movie, the launch of the strictly-limited DB9 GT Bond Edition, with only 150 examples available worldwide.

It seems that with Aston Martin you can never get away from the Bond market.
