The name is Martin. Aston Martin. Licensed to thrill.
The Aston Martin DB9. A car with handsome -together- ancestors. Yes, the DB7 had Mazda taillights, yes, the Vanquish’s keys were from an Audi A2. But; It ensured that this British Gentle-man sportscar manufacturer kept its head above water. Indeed; It allowed Aston to design an all-aluminum GT body under the direction of herr Bez in a brand new factory in Gaydon, England. And so, in 2003, the 911 from Aston Martin was born; The DB9.
Eventually, the DB9 treated the -average big-country owner with taste- for 13 years with an annual new model or facelifts. Just to be sure you’d be lavishing in style. And yes, with its eventual 540 polo horses in the last “version,” it was not the fastest “sportster” in the stable. But that’s not all it was about. All the Connery cows, double stitching and modest(er) appearance do something, too. Not just power, but beauty and soul!
Ours? As it should be. From the last year of construction, so childhood disease free and in the period when the Germans were actively involved in development and production. How nice, an Aston Martin with a little less British ‘humor’. Only 13 thousand kilometers, Kroymans delivered and maintained. All options, likes to go topless. Be honest, that went from 0 to 100 in I-want-to-have-it. Will we see you soon?
