Aston Martin reveals updated DB9

Aston Martin has revealed the latest round of upgrades for its most successful model ever - the DB9.

The British supercar maker has tweaked the grand tourer's appearance and introduced a new damping system intended to enhance both ride comfort and sporting character.

Production of the revised DB9 has already begun with deliveries set to begin next month. Prices start at £122,445 for the coupe and £131,445 for the Volante.
The updated car has been treated to a host of subtle styling alterations designed to freshen up the DB9's exterior.

It gets a new front bumper with a re-shaped lower intake and a bright finish radiator, as well as new headlight bezels, re-styled sills, silver brake callipers, 20-spoke diamond turned alloy wheels and clear rear light lenses.

Beneath the skin Aston Martin has installed a new Adaptive Damping System which it insists improves the DB9's ride quality while in default mode and delivers a more responsive car when the driver pushes the 'sport' button on the centre console.

The manufacturer claims that the new system is so effective that they have decided to discontinue the DB9 Sport Pack from the model's list of optional extras.

There's still plenty to choose from the though as the revised car gives buyers the option of Double Apex alloy trim and a BeoSound audio system from Bang & Olufsen.
