What's the used Aston Martin DB9 sports like?

The Italians aren't the only ones who can make fabulous-sounding 12-cylinder engines. The 450bhp V12 in the Aston Martin DB9 Volante has a note that is as good as any, and with the roof down there's less to separate you from the this.

On smooth, fast roads, the Volante feels composed and grippy, but it begins to be a bit fidgety over more varied surfaces. Although the ride is more forgiving than the coupe's, bumps and broken surfaces can cause shudders through the steering wheel. The 19in wheels kick up road noise and wind buffeting is a problem.
