Aston Martin DB9 2011 minor facelift
Forgotten British sports-car maker Aston Martin, now owned by a troubled Kuwaiti investment fund, has mildly updated their aging DB9 grand tourer model, largely to bring it in line with newer cars when it comes to infotainment tech.
Subtle styling changes include a new front bumper, bright finish radiator grille and a reshaped lower intake featuring bright hexagonal mesh. New headlight bezels, restyled sills, silver brake calipers, 20-spoke diamond turned alloy wheels and clear rear light lenses complete the external revisions.
The DB9 suspension’s passive damping system has been replaced by a new Adaptive Damping System (ADS), which supposedly offers better ride comfort together with sharper handling when switched to Sport mode. The ADS system is offered as standard equipment across the DB9 range, encompassing both the coupe and the Volante convertible. A new tyre pressure monitoring system, a revised Bluetooth microphone system and the addition of a new “Double Apex” alloy finish trim and Bang & Olufsen hi-fi options expand the DB9’s specifications.
