The Aston Martin DB9 is a grand tourer launched by Aston Martin in 2004.
It was the first model to be manufactured at the new Aston Martin factory in Gaydon, Warwickshire, UK.
The designation «DB» is a tribute to David Brown, who owned Aston for much of the brand’s history.
The DB9 project was started by Ian Callum, who had previously been responsible for the DB7, but would be finalized and presented by Henrik Fisker.
According to Aston Martin itself, the DB9 was such a «leap» compared to DB7 that those in charge found it preferable to «skip» the DB8 designation, which would suggest only a slight development relative to the DB7.
In the English Top Gear program, the DB9 was considered «too cool» to be compared to other «cool» cars tested in the series.
The V12 engine is identical to the Vanquish engine, with 6 liters of capacity and 456 horsepower.
This is a DB9 LM, limited and numered edition, commemorating the victory of the DBR9 in the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2008. Initially scheduled a production of 124 units, only 69 would end up being produced, making the DB9 LM even rarer.
The DB9 LM uses a special color, called «Sarthe Silver», the brake calipers are red, the front grille is chrome, the rear lights are identical to the DBS, a special «Obsidian Black» leather with red stitching and embroidery with the layout of La Sarthe (Le Mans) in the armrest. The center console and door hinges also feature applications in a red called «Tertre Rouge».
This is DB9 LM number 20, it has only 15,000 kilometers and a full service history at Aston Martin.
