In 1947, a small British automotive manufacturer was up for sale after falling on hard times during the Second World War. After answering a newspaper advertisement, agricultural and engineering entrepreneur Sir David Brown purchased the company for just over £20,500. He set about revitalising the business, focused on producing a car which improved on the 'Atom' a prototype constructed in 1939
Launched to acclaim in 2003 at the Frankfurt Motor Show with a Volante following in 2004, DB9 was the first car to be produced at Aston Martin's new Gaydon Headquarters. Powered by a V12 engine.
With such an illustrious model line spanning over 50 years, creating the latest 'DB' was an incredible challenge. We combined our greatest design, engineering and technical expertise to produce a car which like it's predecessors is timeless in name and elegant in design.
