The DB9 visited Spalding’s Pirelli Performance Centre (PPC), recently awarded “Gold” status along with all 12 PPC locations within the Bush Tyres Group.

In addition to Spalding confirming ‘Gold’ status, you may have also seen in our recent news Spalding’s Stefan Busby competed with all the national performance centres to take home the highly coveted “PPC Technician of the year” award. This is a great achievement, and you can be sure your car is in the best hands possible for your next tyre change.

Presented in the ‘Morning Frost’ special edition white finish, the colour was the brainchild of the then CEO of Aston Martin, Dr Ulrich Helmut Bez. The idea for the special finish with pearlescent white paint and the ‘sparkle’ effect looks ‘as crisp as frost on a cold winter’s morning’.

The photographs do not do this car justice, in person the effect is magical. If you are ever lucky enough to see one in person, the car appears to glisten in the sunlight like fresh fallen snow on a perfect Christmas morning.

The paint effect is no simple spray job, each car can take up to 50 hours to complete. Layering the paint in specific order through the shades to build up the depth of the effect. The car is then finished in a special lacquer to seal in the finished effect and give the paint its durability.

The DB9 was designed by Ian Callum CBE and Henrik Fisker. Aston skipped out the DB8 designation fearing consumers would assume it only had a V8 engine and not the mighty V12 synonymous with the iconic car maker. This facelifted 2013 model features a 5.9 Litre naturally aspirated V12 making 510hp and getting the car from 0-60mph in 4.5 seconds has a top speed of 183mph.

‘Volante’ is the name given to most convertible or ‘Drop Head’ Aston Martins since 1965 with the first example, the ‘Short Chassis Volante”. Volante is the Italian word for “Flying.” This is something these examples all create the effect of very effectively with the wind rushing around you as the mighty V12 propels you and your lucky passengers toward the horizon.

The DB9 Volante is already one of the most beautiful cars you will see on the road and a guaranteed future classic. This colour only enhances its exclusivity and confirms its chances of being a collectible classic.
