Aston Martin DB9 Volante Info
The creation of the Aston Martin DB9 Volante comes more from the heart than it does from the brain. It represents a piece of art, more so than the mechanical configuration of tools. But don’t think that this undermines its engineering capability and advanced technology. Not at all, it’s a case of where science has become an artform, explored in all its splendid and colourful details. Rent the Aston Martin DB9 Volante and drive an automotive masterpiece.
The beauty of simplicity
The key principle behind the design of the DB9 Volante was that of simplicity. The designs are not heavy with bulky architecture and cumbersome systems, rather, the design focus was on being discreet with engineering solutions that are smoothly integrated into the elegant confines of the sportscar. Unlike other car brands, Aston Martin creates, designs and constructs all of the car’s materials, from the engine and battery to the upholstery and body work.
In this way they are able to maintain control and guarantee the end quality of the final product whilst also ensuring that each bespokely made product is beautifully integrated with the entire vehicle. Take the ‘keystone’ front grille as an example, the grille is instantly recognizable as an icon of Aston Martin, but in the philosophy of “Form meets Function”, this grille moves rearwards on impact, bringing forward the softer front structure of the DB9 and thereby cushioning the impact that would be made in a collision. The grille also hosts double octagonal rails, a new feature which also helps to absorb the force of energy on impact.
Higher security features
Adding to the safety and security features of the DB9 Volante is the seat belt technology. Entirely re-considered the seat belt offers dual pre-tensioning and dual stage load limiting, doing so, all without compromising on comfort. Hire the Aston Martin DB9 Volante for a drive that will see you the undulating hills of Tuscany or across the expansive green plains of Scotland’s western lowlands. Relish the opportunity of driving a car with a highly enviable legacy, simple in its design and yet incredibly advanced.
