What used Aston Martin DB9 sports will I get for my budget?
How much does it cost to run a Aston Martin DB9 sports?
Only about 360 DB9 Volantes are sold in the UK every year, so prices for used cars are likely to remain high. Any Aston Martin is going be costly to run if you do it properly, and failing to do so will hurt your wallet when it's time to sell. Service intervals are every 7500 miles.
The official fuel consumption figure is 17.1mpg, but conservative driving could put this into the high teens. You may find the 200-mile range of the 85-litre tank annoying. With the car in insurance group 20, your premiums are likely to be in four figures.
The DB9 shouldn't be as expensive as some supercars to run, but your bills will be lower if you go for a Porsche 911 Cabriolet or BMW 6 Series Convertible. The Jaguar XKR Convertible is another serious alternative, but although it will be cheaper to buy and run, it doesn't offer as much panache.
