Fun Facts: Aston Martin DB9

  • As you most probably know, the V12 engine-powered Aston Martin DB9 succeeded the old DB7. Aston Martin went straight to 9 instead of 8 since the English automaker wanted to avoid the perception that the successor to the DB7 is powered by a V8 engine.
  • The Aston Martin DB9 was the very first car to be produced at Aston Martin's latest home (the company's first purpose-built manufacturing facility in its entire history) in Gaydon, Warwickshire. The DB9 was also the first Aston Martin to be developed on the automaker's aluminum VH (vertical/horizontal) platform, which is the one used for all the cars produced in the Gaydon facility.
  • How does the Aston Martin DB9 easily reach its top speed of 186 mph? There are many factors, of course, but one of its secrets lies in its exhaust. The DB9's exhaust silencer was aerodynamically designed to ensure that the car can reach its top speed without much effort.
  • The Aston Martin DB9 didn't take long before it ruled the racing circuits. A year after it was introduced to the world, the DB9 won in its debut at the 2005 12 Hours of Sebring. It went on to win other major racing series such as the Le Mans Series, the American Le Man Series, the 24 Hours of Le Mans, and the FIA GT3 European Championship.
  • Aston Martin released a special edition of the DB9 to commemorate its victory at the 2007 24 Hours of Le Mans. Aptly referred to as the DB9 LM, Aston Martin manufactured only 124 units of the car. All 124 featured a coupe body and a unique color called Sarthe Silver (the name of the color was derived from Circuit de la Sarthe, the home of Le Mans).
  • As anyone can see, the Aston Martin DB9 is plain dashing, to say the least. That's why it isn't surprising that it has made appearances in both the big and small screen. It has been seen in movies and TV shows such as Desperate Housewives, The Good Guys, Entourage, Nip/Tuck, The Vampire Diaries, Fantastic Four, CSI: Miami, The O.C, and Suits, among others. On top of those, the DB9 has also starred in several music videos.

  • Common Problems with an Aston Martin DB9

    Remarkable-this word sums up the Aston Martin DB9. From its stunning aesthetics to its impressive mechanism, the DB9 is simply one of the finest automobiles out there. However, it isn't devoid of problems. Described below are some of the most common DB9 issues:

    Faulty Shift Interlock System

    Upon applying pressure on the Aston Martin DB9's parking interlock system, the locking cone (a part of the parking pawl system) may cause an indentation on an unhardened guide plate at the cone contact area. The dent can prevent the locking cone from reaching its designated position and ultimately cause the P button in the parking interlock system to be ineffective. Naturally, this could result to the rollaway of the DB9. Therefore, Aston Martin issued a recall on the affected vehicles and replaced their parking pawl guide plate.

    Fragile Lower Control Arm Bolt

    The Aston Martin DB9 was then known to have a fragile lower control arm cam bolt. The said component tended to crack, thus causing the lower control arm to become dislodged. Naturally, the displacement of the lower control arm would affect the DB9's steering. The probability of a crash increases because of this issue. For that reason, Aston Martin issued a recall on the 2006-2008 DB9s. Dealers replaced the problematic lower control arm cam bolts free of charge.

    Stuck Starter Button

    There have been reports in the past of the Aston Martin DB9 starter button getting stuck after being pressed. This would of course result in the starter motor (and ultimately, the Aston Martin DB9) being unusable. Fortunately, this issue can be resolved without having to purchase a replacement starter button.

    To access the back of the button and be able to push it out of the recess, the central veneer panel (where the gear selector and SAT NAV buttons are) would have to be removed. Once that's out of the way, the back of the button becomes accessible. Push it out through the front area of the panel and check out what went wrong. Most of the time, all it takes is a bit of super glue to fix whatever the problem may be.
