Supplied new by Stratstone Aston Martin, Cheshire in Toro Red with Obsidian black leather interiorJust two owners have covered 10,000 miles with servicing carried out by Stratstone Aston MartinFew cars offer such style and power in an understated package and Toro Red is a rare colourThe 5.9-litreV12 engine propels the carfrom a standing start to 60mph in 4.6 secondsOffered to auction with full book packs in a condition commensurate with the low mileageLaunched at the 2003 Frankfurt Motor Show, the exceptional Aston Martin DB9 promised to be one of the most sought after 'Supercars' of the decade with Henrik Fisker's flowing design retaining all the good looks of its predecessor, the highly acclaimed DB7. Weight was kept low by the use of aluminium and composites for the bodywork, whilst power from the 5.9-litre V12 was a healthy 450bhp, providing the Aston with acceleration to 100mph from standstill in only 10 seconds, and on to a near 190mph maximum speed. Weight distribution was a perfect 50:50 thanks to the front/mid-engine layout with a rear-mounted sequential transmission.Most DB9s were delivered with a six-speed ZF automatic gearbox featuring paddle-operated semi-automatic mode, perfect for pootling around town or continental touring. The DB9 was aimed at, like all proceeding Astons, a certain type of owner; an enthusiast who appreciated the speed and soundtrack but also the refinement and discretion.This delightful example, according to the Stratstone Aston Martin order form, was specified with Toro Red coachwork and Obsidian Black leather interior optioned with perforated seats, amongst other selected options, at a total cost of 117,930 in December 2007. The first owner, a Mr Balchin, took delivery some four months later on the 6th March 2008 and he was to use the car sparingly until it was sold to our vendor in 2016, who lived just six miles up the road and is the cars second recorded keeper. An Aston enthusiast since her formative years, our vendor doubled the mileage to just over 10,000 miles, and it has been serviced at the following intervals:09/09/2009 Stratstone Aston Martin at 1,226 miles25/02/2011 Stratstone Aston Martin at 2,214 miles22/02/2012 Stratstone Aston Martin at 3,169 miles16/02/2014 Stratstone Aston Martin at 4,458 miles22/02/2015 Stratstone Aston Martin at 4,766 miles07/13/2017 Stratstone Aston Martin at 6,548 miles06/06/2018 Stratstone Aston Martin at 7,052 miles06/03/2019 Stratstone Aston Martin at 9,577 milesThis fine example of the DB9 has a service record that is virtually unparalleled and an MOT history that reflects the low mileage.
