It’s hard to know how to improve on a classic, especially one with such heritage as the DB5. But Aston Martin proved they were more than up to the task when they designed and produced the DB9 model.
It was also the supercar favourite’s move into producing a more visible, universally appealing model, with between 1400 - 1500 produced every year. In the DB9, there’s all the comfort and luxury you’d expect from an Aston Martin, with a walnut wood and leather finish to the interior, and gadgetry including a Dolby Prologic sound system with Bluetooth and Sat Nav capabilities.
Its largely aluminium exterior - with composite materials making up the bonnet and bumper - means this is also one of the lightest Aston Martin models around, which, as you would expect, means it boasts an impressive top speed of 189 mph, and accelerates from 0 - 60 mph in 5.1 seconds.
You can drive an Aston Martin at over 15 various tracks throughout the UK with Trackdays.co.uk, all of which will provide you with a fantastic day out.

If you're purchasing an open gift certificate for an Aston Martin package, double-check the validity term, as certain vouchers and special offers may have a shorter or longer activation and usage time, which will be mentioned clearly on the voucher.
Please keep in mind that booking an Aston Martin Experience for a certain day is a request, and the day and time you choose are subject to availability. Bookings are generally confirmed within 48 hours, however you should wait until you get a final confirmation email before making any plans. You will get instant confirmation after submitting a booking request. This is done before the formal confirmation of the booking.
Make sure the driver fulfils all of the age, weight, height, and driving licence criteria before buying Aston Martin Experiences. Each event will have its own set of requirements, so make sure you double-check everything.
We will generally indicate in the package name if an experience is just for younger drivers, but this is not always the case. If the driver does not fulfil the criteria on the day of the event, he or she will not be allowed to drive and will instead be offered a ride as a passenger.
First showcased at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2003, the DB9 is so named as the ‘DB’ refers to David Brown, who was the owner of Aston Martin for much of its operating years to date. Although the successor to the DB7, it was chosen to be called the DB9 to avoid any confusion over whether or not it ran on a V8 engine.
The DB9 has also been adapted into two racing car counterparts by Aston Martin Racing, the Aston Martin DBR9 and DBRS9, the former of which has gone onto win pole position at American Le Mans Series, the FIA GT Championship and also its debut year at 12 Hours of Sebring in 2005.
All experiences are subject to availability. The most recent information on dates when an event may be available can be checked by looking at the calendars on the website, or when you have activated and logged in with your voucher. Please note not all spaces are shown online so if you cannot see spaces for your event please call or email for dates. We will do our best to secure your preferred choice of event, venue and date, but to avoid disappointment book as early as possible, especially for peak times such as weekends and the summer months which book up very quickly. Do not purchase an experience for yourself or as a gift that has a choice of venues if you or the person it is for are only able to travel to one of the choices. Once you are booked, you are bound by the terms and conditions of the event host of which a copy can be made available upon request. In most circumstances, a cancellation cannot be made once a date has been booked.
When booking by phone or online you should not make arrangements in connection with an Event until you have received your final booking confirmation stating your date and time (this does not include the automatic purchase email you receive that confirms what you have just ordered). Your final confirmation will usually arrive within 48 hours of making the purchase. For voucher redemption see 'voucher conditions' below. Where specific elements of an Event such as vehicles or equipment are not available due to mechanical breakdown, we reserve the right to make reasonable substitutions on the day. If this is not possible we reserve the right to cancel the experience at short notice.
Voucher holders must make a prior booking and receive confirmation in order that an open voucher can be redeemed. We recommend that when you have chosen your experience you redeem your voucher at least 21 days in advance of taking your selected experience. We do not guarantee availability on all events, even if the date is showing, so if a chosen event is full or you cannot find a suitable date during the validity period of your voucher then the credit can be used towards an alternative event. Do not arrive at a venue expecting to be able to use your voucher without making a prior booking and receiving a booking confirmation. Trackdays.co.uk will not be held liable for any costs incurred in such circumstances.
Unless stated otherwise, vouchers are valid for one person only. Where necessary a top-up payment can be made to increase the value of a voucher to book a higher priced event. Note that during the out of season months the price of experience may change. If the price of the event is lower than the value of the voucher the remaining credit will be held for use until the vouchers expiry date. We recommend booking as early as possible as you must have undertaken your experience before the expiry date printed on the front of your Voucher. All vouchers will be valid for use up to the expiry date displayed, but after this date, vouchers will automatically expire and cannot be reinstated under any circumstances. Trackdays.co.uk staff are not responsible for reminding or informing customers when a voucher is due to expire. A voucher holder may book a date which is outside of the expiration date displayed on the voucher but must extend the expiry of their voucher for an administration fee. This must be processed before the original expiry date. Voucher credit cannot be used for extension fees or to pay for booking protection.
