DB9 GT Volante

Most focused and powerful DB9 convertible yet

Aston Martin describes the DB9 GT as the ‘ultimate incarnation’ of the DB9 line, and reminds us that the GT badge only ever appears on the most powerful DB models. All of which sets up our expectations nicely for an Aston Martin open tourer of towering performance, enhanced by a few subtle design touches here and there. Rest assured the DB9 GT Volante doesn’t disappoint.

Overview

Aston Martin DB9 GT Volante

As with its coupé stablemate, the DB9 GT Volante features some distinctive design touches to keep those lean, elegant lines up to the minute. There’s a gloss black splitter and diffuser, while both the headlamps and clear rear tail lamps feature a black border, adding a touch of dark menace. Swapping brightwork for dark refreshes the look of the DB9 and gives it a low, lean and planted look, complemented by the 20-inch diamond-turned alloy wheels.

Inside, the dark theme continues with Piano Black fascia and Iridium trim, while new fluted seats and door inserts in Bridge of Weir leather feature the micro perforation first offered on the Vanquish. Headrest embroidery features the GT emblem and there’s a sill plaque with the full model name. As ever craftsmanship is impeccable, and another nice design touch is the engraved ‘GT’ fuel filler cap.

The new DB9 GT Volante also features the new AMi II infotainment system, offering more comprehensive and user-friendly access to audio, hands-free calling and vehicle status updates. You can even see real-time power and torque output meters as well as check tyre pressures on the move.

Technology

Aston Martin DB9 GT Volante

Both the Volante and the coupé version of the DB9 GT are powered by a new, 540bhp, 5935cc V12, one of the most glorious-sounding engines in the automotive world. The DB9 GT Volante develops maximum torque of 620Nm at 5,500rpm while the 540bhp power peak, some 30bhp up on its predecessor, arrives at 6,750rpm. Acceleration from 0-100km/h (62mph) takes just 4.5 seconds. Power is sent to the rear-mid-mounted 6-speed Touchtronic transmission via a carbon-fibre propshaft. A sports exhaust (with switchable normal mode for quiet dawn getaways) is now standard and it sounds even better with the hood down.

Taming all that extra power are Carbon Ceramic Matrix disc brakes, while the three-stage Adaptive Damping System offers a choice of Normal, Sport and Track settings. Some powerful open tourers are more boulevard cruiser than track weapon, but the latest DB9 GT Volante is clearly eager for the fray. Gaydon has saved the best till last.
