Which used Aston Martin DB9 sports should I buy?

There was only one engine option, but buyers could choose between a six-speed manual gearbox and a six-speed automatic with manual override. The latter swaps ratios smoothly, but feels a little slow when you want full speed ahead.

As you would expect with a car that originally cost more than £115,000, climate control, powered seats, sat-nav and a high-end stereo are all fitted as standard. However, this still leaves the DB9 missing some luxury kit that cheaper rivals, such as the Mercedes SL55 AMG, always include.
