ASTON MARTIN REFRESHES DB9
Despite the fact that few people would actually argue that the Aston Martin DB9 really needed a nip and tuck, so it happen now on 2011 DB9. The lower front grille has been reshaped and new mesh inserts have been added, while the rocker panel crease now sweeps up into the rear wheel arches.
Mechanically, the DB9’s 6.0-liter V12 powertrain has been carried over, as has its 470 horsepower and 442 pound-feet of torque. The most significant upgrade for 2011 is the adoption of an adaptive damping system similar to the one already available on the DBS and Rapide.
