2007 Aston Martin DB9 Volante automatic


  • Only 17,722 miles on the clock
  • Fantastic unmarked Meteorite Silver paintwork
  • Obsidian black leather interior in first rate condition
  • Full Aston Martin service history
  • 450bhp 5.9-litre V12 automatic

The Appeal

The DB9 was the successor to the popular DB7 but it’s innovative aluminium VH platform not only gave it 25 per cent less weight, but also doubled the torsional stiffness. Both the coupe and Volante convertible were launched at the Frankfurt Auto Show in 2003, prior to going on sale in 2004.

Featuring a powerful 5,935cc V12 engine that developed 450bhp mated up to either a six-speed Graziano manual or a six-speed ZF automatic, performance was strong with the 0-60mph sprint taking a mere 4.7 seconds. The top speed was 186mph.

This particular example has only covered 17,722 miles and has a full Aston Martin main dealer service history and is finished in stunning Meteorite Silver paintwork which is in first rate condition. It’s kept indoors under a bespoke cover with the battery on a conditioner and only comes out on dry sunny days.

The History and Paperwork

  • V5C present in current owner’s name
  • Owned since March 2019
  • MoT until April 2024
  • Never failed an MoT
  • Never had an MoT advisory

First registered on the third of March 2007, this Volante has been owned by the current owner since March 2019 and has always been serviced by Aston Martin Nottingham during his tenure. It had covered around 15,000 miles at the time and has only covered 17,722 miles being used in dry weather as a second car. It is kept garaged, under an Aston Martin fitted cover and linked to a battery conditioner when it is not in use.

When bought by the current owner it was fully detailed and treated to a ceramic coating on the bodywork and wheels, while the Mohair roof was also fully treated. The current owners also thinks that the engine was upgraded by Aston Martin to produce 485bhp.

It was last serviced by Aston Martin Nottingham on 28 April 2023 at 17,194 miles when it received an annual service that included an oil and filter change, as well as a coolant change.

The number plate shown in the photos is being retained by the owner and the car will be supplied with its original MX57KUD registration plate.

The Interior

  • Original Obsidian black leather interior trim is in first rate condition
  • Electric front seats with three memory positions on both sides
  • No marks or damage to the front seats
  • Rear seats look like they have barely been used
  • Satellite Navigation system with pop-up screen
  • Push button start and push button gears
  • Immaculate leather steering wheel with flappy paddles for manual gear selection

As you’d expect of a hand built British sportscar, the quality of the interior and the materials used are of the highest quality and the sumptuous Obsidian black leather seats are a special place to be. The deeply contoured sports seats have perforated leather centres and immaculate stitch detailing. Even the driver’s seat bolster shows next to no wear and the condition of everything is first rate. Nothing has been modified and the original silver centre console looks to be in superb condition.

Even starting it is special – you thumb the central crystal-like AM branded button the hugh 5.9-lite V12 barks into life.

This particular model features all the toys and includes electric windows, mirrors, seats (heated of course) as well as parking sensors front and rear, climate control, satellite navigation, a built-in phone system and a heated quick clear front screen. Even the roof is electric and operates smoothly at the touch of a button.

Overall the interior is in near showroom condition and is difficult to fault.

The Exterior 

  • Meteorite Silver metallic paintwork is in exceptional condition
  • We couldn’t see any stonechips or even light scratches in the paintwork
  • Arrow straight shut lines and no marks or even pressure dints
  • All headlight, tail-light and indicator lenses look perfect
  • Diamond-cut five-spoke sports alloys all in exceptional condition with no kerb marks
  • Original Mercedes alloy wheels all in good condition
  • Aston Martin ‘AM9’ specific Bridgestone Potenza tyres in 235/40-19 size (dated 2014) at the front with ample tread
  • Matching ‘AM9’ branded Bridgestone Potenza tyres in 275/35-19 size (dated 2013) also have ample tread

The original Meteorite Silver metallic paintwork is in exceptional condition on this Volante and notably free from stonechips, marks or even swirl marks. It has clearly been pampered and cherished. It is not far off concours condition and even the diamond cut five spoke sports wheels are in unmarked condition and have no kerb marking whatsoever.

The owner also points out that he has second set of 17-inch alloy wheels that are available by separate negotiation.

Grooved discs peek out from the wheels and are clamped by grey metallic painted calipers complete with Aston Martin branding.

The Mohair roof is unmarked, while all the lenses and glass on the car are in equally superb condition.

Aston Martin Nottingham have commented that it is the best Volante that they’re seen and the condition is exceptional for a 2007 registered car.

The Mechanics 

  • Engine bay is smart and neat with a recent service
  • Powered by a silky smooth 5.9-litre V12 (built by Mick Moten says the engine bay plaque)
  • Engine started up easily and sounded fantastic
  • Six-speed automatic push button gearbox felt fine

As with the condition of the interior and exterior, under the bonnet of this Volante is an immaculate V12 engine that looks almost factory fresh. With only 17,722 miles on it, it nearly is! It started easily at the first prod of the button and settled down to a silky smooth idle that only a V12 can produce.

With a full annual service carried out only 528 miles ago, as you’d expect the car doesn’t need any attention. The current owners says he does not know of any issues with it mechanically and says it drives beautifully and has fantastic power from that V12 powerhouse under the bonnet.


There can be few Volante models with the right colour combination that are as immaculate as this 2007 example. With just 17,722 miles on the clock, full Aston Martin service history and first-rate paintwork it is hard to fault. Definitely not one to miss if you’re after one of the finest examples around.

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.

Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.


Car & Classic prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.

Auctions are extended by 3 minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £9,999 £100.00
£10,000 to £49,999 £250.00
£50,000 to £99,999 £500.00
£100,000 + £1,000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.

You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.

What are pre-bids?

A pre-bid means you\'re able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
