This is a 2015 Aston Martin DB9 Carbon Edition with 5.9 liter V12 and 6-speed automatic transmission.

Exterior/Body. The hood, front bumper cover and both front fenders are covered with 'clear bra', a clear protective film applied at the factory. There are some nicks in this protective film at the front of the car. Some of what is seen in the pictures are not these nicks but are either dust or water mist spots. The picture of the Aston Martin emblem on the hood is a good example of what is not the nicks. Very bottom edge of the front is a place where the car has most likely bumped a parking curb (see pic). Just in front of the rear wheels on both sides and at the bottom are more nicks in the protective film and also in the area a couple inches in front of the protective film (see pics). I did not see this until I was laying on the ground examining the bottom side of the car. Other than these imperfections the paint is excellent and the body panels are laser straight. All panel gaps and alignment are excellent. Paint thickness readings ranged between 5 mils and 14 mils which is indicative of factory applied paint (no damage repair/repaint). All glass is excellent. All trim is excellent. Wheels are in excellent condition and tires are in very good condition.

Chassis/Undercarriage. Clean and damage free. Like the rest of this car, in excellent, near new condition. All rubber boots and bushings appear near new.

Engine Compartment. Professionally detailed and looks as new as it can get for a car that has been driven. All fluids clear (not dirty/old) and at proper levels. Belts and hoses near new. Everything in outstanding condition.

Interior. The entire interior is in outstanding condition. Leather upholstery is as new as is the rest of the inside of this car. I did not see any imperfections anywhere on the inside. All switches, gauges, and controls work as they should, no issues found. Some visible wear on the key fob's soft surface.

Test Drive. This DB9 drives like a new automobile. Suspension, steering, and brakes are superb. Tight, solid, no abnormal noises or sounds. Again, drives like a new car.

Summary. Other than the imperfections mentioned above with the body, and those are normal wear items, this car is in amazing condition. This absolutely beautiful interior that is flawless. Drives like a new DB9. See below and pics for more info.
