When inquired further about driving the DB9 Volante, Walton was quick to point out that there was more to the car than its potent powerplant by stating, "The true marvel of the DB9 Volante is its perfect weight balance - it has exactly 50/50 weight distribution, with 85% of the car's mass located between the front and rear axles. In terms of stability and precision, the experience is extremely positive - the driver is provided with extraordinary feedback and response."

"Aston Martin believes that its cars should have three outstanding qualities: power, beauty and soul, and this car has bucket loads of each," says Walton with a smile. We couldn't agree more, which is why we're proud to proclaim it Best of Show for the 2004 North American International Auto Show.

"All other car companies take note," said Romero. "This is a perfect example of how a sports car should be built. Henrick [Fisker] is a genius - his designs are instantly identifiable and become instant classics by which all other designs are measured." Litscher adds, "Aside from being drop dead gorgeous, the DB9 Volante is a 'real' car. Real people will fit in it. Real people will be able to drive and enjoy it. To produce a car with so much passion, power and comfort at the current price point, is a testament to Aston Martin's capabilities."
