Suspension is a key ingredient in the success of any performance car. Aston Martin takes the concept of suspension to a new level. Experience the powerful suspension system of the DB9 Volante made possible by the strong aluminium wishbones.

The rear aluminium double wishbones include anti-lift geometry and anti-squat technology. Experience the powerful force of the suspension system of this Aston Martin car when you choose performance car hire from Signature Car Hire.
Transmission is an important piece of the Aston Martin's success. Aston Martin chose to make this car a six-speed manual transmission car. However, there is nothing ordinary about this manual transmission. The DB9 Volante adds a dash of excitement with the mid-mounted 'Touchtronic 2' six-speed gearbox. This gearbox includes an electronic shift-by-wire control system which makes it a refreshing option to choose for self drive hire. Penetrate the barriers of motoring with the manual transmission of the DB9 Volante: the six-speed transmission system makes this an edgy and innovative choice for weekends and important events where you want to stand out.
The engine of this Aston Martin proves that it is a true thoroughbred. The 6 litre V12 engine is completed with a quad overhead camshaft system that points to its intricacies. The engine can accelerate from 0 - 60 mph in 4.3 seconds. It is this gripping performance ability that makes the Aston Martin a dream to discover during self drive hire. The maximum torque levels of 600 Nm at 5,000 rpm will ripple through you as you grip the steering wheel when you hire this prestige car. To keep the engine in top form, engineers have created it with a fully catalysed stainless steel exhaust system which has active bypass valves. Not only does this cement the DB9 Volante's position as a top supercar for people to try out, it proves Aston Martin's dominance of the performance car market. Explore the new performance territory of this Aston Martin when you uncover the rip-roaring top speed of 186 mph.

No interior of an Aston Martin would be complete without their iconic seats. The comfort level of the Aston Martin seats is high: the heated front seats make you feel comfortable if you are driving the car in chilly weather and are fully secure with airbags as standard. One important feature for Aston Martin cars is ensuring that passengers are comfortable at all times. This is achieved through automatic temperature control which you can activate easily during car hire.
Entering the cabin of the DB9 Volante will be a new experience that you can savour every minute of your car hire period. Soak in the full grain leather interior which feels soft and smooth to the touch. The cabin of the DB9 Volante features many controls that make everything accessible to you at the touch of a button.

There is stunning colour juxtaposition inside the car that makes it beautiful to look at: the Iridium Silver centre console is contrasted with the Graphite inner finish for a glossy way of pairing colours. If you love cars that are stylish to a higher standard than other cars, you will like the Aston Martin DB9 Volante. The walnut veneer facia trim adds a touch of class to a car that will delight you during self drive hire.
Great sports cars must handle superbly. They should respond quickly and predictably to driver commands; they should be nimble and agile. To achieve the low weight that is the starting point for such agility, all the DB9's major body and mechanical components are made from either aluminium, magnesium alloy or advanced, lightweight, composite materials.
The front-to-rear weight distribution of the DB9 is a perfect 50:50, with 85% of the car's mass sited between the front and rear axles. The aluminium V12 engine is mounted as far back as possible in a 'front mid-engined' layout. The compact aluminium transaxle housing the gearbox and final drive is positioned at the rear, forward of the rear axle
The white body of the Aston Martin is the perfect shade for a car that will gleam on the road during self drive hire. The two-door coupe doors are two cornerstones of the body of the car. Made from a mixture of aluminium and composite, the body is a diverse yet flexible exterior for a car which packs plenty of features into a muscular performance car. As with all Aston Martin cars, the exterior lighting is a key feature that takes centre-stage. Take a look at the halogen projector headlamps which form the main beam of the car. They have a power wash facility included with them. The LED rear lamps and the high intensity discharge lamps will capture your imagination during self drive hire as they light up the environment around you. Exterior lighting is important not only for you but for other motorists: people will not be able to keep their eyes off the white DB9 Volante as it rips down the motorway during self drive hire.
The body of the Aston Martin is framed by imposing tyres that command attention. The tyres are 19" alloy wheels that are peppered with an eye-catching ten spoke design. Think about how sleek the tyres will look as your Aston Martin moves during self drive hire. The arresting visual imagery of these alloy tyres are another reason why choosing this Aston Martin is easy for people who love style to be fused into their driving style.
It is assembled largely by hand and features an aluminium-bonded frame, carbon fibre driveshaft, 19-inch rims and exterior paint and interior colour-keyed to our individual specifications. As a relatively new model for Aston Martin, the DB9 is one of our most popular rental self drive models.
Beautifully styled, the DB9 never fails to stir the soul with its unique sound, power and performance. This purebred sports car is also a technical triumph, its beauty signifying aerodynamic efficiency, its power unencumbered by weight, its devastating straight-line performance paired with exquisite handling. All great sports cars strive to balance these qualities, and the Asron Martin DB9 Volante creates a rental hire experience that is both unique and unforgettable. What the driver sees, hears and feels is in harmony. The reward is total involvement: a level of engagement that truly stimulates the senses, that re-ignites a passion for driving.
But hiring an Aston Martin is also about a luxurious, indulgent and enjoyable self drive experience - it is a feast for the senses. Sure enough, the magnificent exterior styling of the DB9 Volante gives way to a sumptuous, comprehensively equipped cabin, trimmed in the finest materials. Every element is perfectly conceived, from the 6.0-litre V12, to the hand-stitched seats and carefully selected interior woods. Nothing is out of place.
No sports car manufacturer has a greater design heritage than Aston Martin. Responsible for some of the most beautiful sports cars ever made, Aston Martin imbues every model with understated elegance and graceful styling, achieved through harmonious proportions, taut surfacing, a ground-hugging stance and thorough attention to detail.
Our DB9 Volante is elegant, luxurious and supremely comfortable, making it a perfect Aston Martin self hire drive car choice. Its cabin is hand-trimmed in beautiful, natural materials - primarily wood and leather - and incorporates the latest in modern technology without resorting to superfluous controls or displays. There is a minimum of distraction - even the satellite navigation screen folds discreetly away when not in use.
Every element of the interior is hand-made and hand-finished, from the cutting of the leather to the carefully crafted wood. This is done not out of deference to tradition, but because a skilled craftsman can finish wood or leather to a far higher standard than any machine. The leather is particularly soft and supple, as you would expect of Aston Martin, and is used throughout the cabin.
An Aston Martin is subtle, not attention-seeking. Key Aston Martin design elements include the distinctive grille, metal side strakes, signature rear window shape and wide, curvaceous haunches. Luxury is also at a premium on our DB9 Volante, making your Aston Martin rental a dream drive. Electric seats, heated seats, climate control, adjustable steering and leather upholstery make this model luxurious and comfortable.
