What used Aston Martin DB9 coupe will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Aston Martin DB9 coupe?

The UK only received about 360 new DB9s a year, so prices for used cars are likely to remain high. Naturally, the car will be costly to run; service intervals are every 7500 miles and Aston Martin dealers have a reputation for handing out large bills.

The official fuel consumption figure is 17.1mpg. However if you're very gentle with the throttle, or spend all your time crawling around town, you could see high teens.

If you live in a built-up area or don't have a squeaky-clean no claims bonus, you can expect your insurance premium to rise to a four-figure sum.

If you plan to drive a DB9 as it was intended, you'll need to replace the tyres on a regular basis. Main dealers are expensive, so the best bet could be an independent specialist.
