Hi Readers, The Aston Martin DB9 with the powerful V12 engine is one of the most sensational cars on the road ! British Secret Agent, James Bond, 007 “Licensed to Kill” made famous the Aston Martin cars in a series of Bond films, Goldfinger, Thunderball, Golden Eye, Tomorrow Never Dies, Casino Royale and the most recently, Skyfall. And you can imagine our grooming team was filled with awe when this currently one and only 2013 Aston Martin DB9 Volante in Singapore rolled into Revol Carz Makeover Workshop for the ZeTough Ceramic Paint-protection coating assignment. THE NEW ASTON MARTIN DB9 VOLANTE The initials ‘DB” is actually stemmed from the name of the owner of Aston Martin, David Brown. Aston Martin did not name the car DBS8 despite being the successor of the DB7. This was to avoid the DB9 being misinterpreted as equipped with a V8 engine. The DB9 was in fact, built with a more powerful V12 engine. The DB9 Volante is the open-top convertible version of Aston Martin DB9 Coupe and shares the same semi-automatic and automatic gearbox and engine. The retractable fabric roof folds down or put up in just seventeen seconds. The 2013 model however made minor changes to the body works. The headlights are enlarged to house the Bi-Xenon lights. Also added is the daytime strips LED. The front of the DB9 has no visible bumpers and without a separate nose cone. The Aston Martin DB9 Volante has been enriched and protected to its fullest with ZeTough Ceramic Paint Protection Coating and it looks ready to be assigned to the next “License to Kill” mission” with the proud owner. As for us and our crew, we were honored to have been a part of the “mission” in providing the ZeTough ceramic paint protection service to this special car. As always, It is our…, “License to thrill”. Enjoy viewing!
The exterior of the DB9 somewhat followed the DB7, conveying the contemporary the classic DB design and characteristics of Aston Martin. The DB9 retains the traditional Aston Martin grille and design attempts to keep the lines traditionally simple and refined.
The Volante strengthened windshield pillars and added pop-up hoops behind the rear seats were designed to protect the occupants from rollover.
Paintwork colour protected and enriches to its fullest exposing more contour line, Simply mesmerizing!
