Aston Martin revealed today the facelifted DB9 range which includes a complete package of styling, engineering and equipment enhancements. According to the manufacturer, the main change of this car is the new front bumper which features a re-shaped lower intake featuring hexagonal mesh to compliment the new bright finish radiator grille.
Also, the new headlamp bezels complete the design. Further enhancements include silver brake calipers, 20-spoke diamond turned alloy wheels as standard as well as new design option wheels and a bright finish grille.
The new rear light lenses are also standard. Inside, the new Double Apex alloy finish is now added to the list of options as well as the BeoSound audio system from Bang & Olufsen.
The new Aston Martin DB9 includes hardware changes that focus on the chassis, featuring Adaptive Damping System (ADS) as standard.
For those who don't know, the ADS offers a system constantly evaluating the optimum damper condition, similar to that seen on the DBS and Rapide models. This system is controlled via a button on the centre console and includes two-stage adaptive dampers: default mode, which is optimized for ride comfort, and a firmer sport mode.
Under the hood we find the impressive 6.0-litre V12 engine delivering 470bhp and 442lb ft of torque and mated to a choice of six-speed 'Touchtronic' paddle-shift automatic or six-speed H-pattern manual transmissions.
With these numbers, the car can hit 60 mph in just 4.6 seconds while the top speed is limited to 190 mph. The deliveries of the new Aston Martin will commence in July and prices start from £122,445 for the Aston Martin DB9 Coupe and £131,445 for the Aston Martin DB9 Volante.
