The 2011 DB9 and DB9 Volante

Aston Martin has just given the DB9 its largest update since it was launched back in 2003.

The GT model has been a major success for the company and it has now upgraded the car’s styling, technical specifications and added equipment to make it even better.

The freshened up 2011 model retains the iconic styling cues of prior models but gains a new front bumper, bright finish radiator grille, revised headlights, restyled side sills, silver brake callipers, clear lens taillights and new 20-spoke alloy wheels. In terms of equipment the new DB9 gets a restyled Bang & Olufsen stereo, updated Bluetooth connectivity and a new tyre pressure monitoring system.

Apart from the cosmetic changes, the 2011 DB9 features a new Adaptive Damping System (ADS) which is said to improve ride and handling. The car retains the 470bhp 6.0-litre V12 engine from its predecessor which is mated to either a six-speed paddle-shift automatic or a six-speed manual transmission.

The new DB9 (including the Volante) is already in production and global deliveries are expected to commence in July 2010.
