Thanks for checking out this listing for a superb 2009 Aston Martin DB9 Coupe. It is finished in Mendip Blue with a
Sandstorm leather and Alcantara interior with dark blue accents. This fantastic automobile has enormous power and
handling and is completely reflective of the high level of quality and engineering that Aston Martin is so well
renowned. Everything works as originally designed and the paint sparkles with no scratches, dings or dents. The
interior is in terrific shape as well and has the original aroma of fine leather. The perforated leather seats are
very comfortable and have no marks or visible wear, and the Alcantara headliner is in perfect shape with no marks.
The wood is a light burled Ash and is remarkable in its appearance and shows tremendous depth. The sound system is
truly breathtaking and plays your music at concert hall quality with volume to match. This spectacular automobile
is full of amazing options that is expected in such a supremely handmade vehicle. All lights and equipment
functions as new and the glass is clear and unmarked. This is a low mileage car that has a clear Carfax and has
recently been fully serviced so that all it needs is a new owner. As described above, the 2009 DB9 was the subject
of numerous upgrades to the engine, transmission and suspension systems and is a vast improvement over the previous
design. The maintenance that was performed is: new air filters, new a/c pollen filter, new oil filter, new drain
plug and copper washers, new set of spark plugs, all new fluids including brake, coolant, gear oil, motor oil,
engine oil treatment, new manifold gasket, and new exhaust valves. This Aston is being sold with both keys and the
original owners manual. When not in operation it lives a pampered life under its Aston Martin car cover in the
garage. The only thing this beautiful Aston needs is a new owner.

This has been a tumultuous year for Lotus - to say the least - from the company being sold off back in January to its CEO Dany Bahar being fired in June to its questionable financial status and rumors of the British automaker being sold off to another automaker. First, we heard that Volkswagen was interested in acquiring Lotus and parent company Proton, a rumor that was later dismissed. Now Automobile is reporting that fellow Brit Aston Martin could be in the market to work with or possibly even merge with Lotus.
While this is pure speculation at this point, such a venture could prove to be beneficial for both independent companies. That's because with Lotus focused on lightweight, relatively affordable sports cars and Aston Martin producing high-end performance cars, there is virtually no product overlap between the companies. The article suggests that a person or company wanting to merge these two automakers would have to raise between $1.1 billion and $1.6 billion in order to make a go of it, however.
We're not sure what to think of this latest rumor, but anything that can help get the struggling brand back to health at least has our interest.
As part of an increasingly close partnership, Mercedes-Benz parent company Daimler is reportedly preparing to increase its stake in Aston Martin by another one percent, bringing the German automaker's shares in the British company up to five percent.
The rapprochement between the two has been in the works for years now, and is finally beginning to take form. Mercedes-AMG is in the midst of developing a new engine with and for Aston Martin in an apparently similar arrangement to that which it has with Pagani. But that's not the extent of it.
Daimler will also furnish Aston Martin with electrical systems and other components, said to lead up to the eventual sharing of platforms: one to underpin future GTs and another to serve as the basis for a long-mooted Aston Martin crossover, now said to be back on the table and slated to launch in 2017. The prospect of using the partnership to reinvigorate both the Lagonda and Maybach luxury brands, however, has since been taken off the table, with both parties continuing those projects independently.
While slow sales and a $50,000 price tag may have been contributing factors to the Aston Martin Cygnet being cancelled last month, Aston Martin CEO Ulrich Bez is pointing the finger at Toyota for the demise of this luxurious little city car. In a discussion with Autocar, Bez is quoted as saying that the ultimate reason the Cygnet was cut is because Toyota plans on dropping the iQ (on which the Cygnet is based) in 2014 - a claim denied by the Japanese automaker.
Interestingly, the article also cites another publication reporting that a Toyota importer in the Netherlands heard the same news as Bez, and it has already stopped importing the cars. If the European Toyota iQ is cancelled, that would likely spell the end of the slow-selling Scion iQ in the US, which has sold just 3,365 units through September (a drop of 51 percent year over year).
Regardless of why production of the Cygnet ended, Bez also says that a lack of support from Toyota on the project prevented it from being offered in the US or receiving a supercharged engine, which are two factors that likely would have made the car appealing to more buyers.
