Aston Martin DB9 Facelift

British carmaker Aston Martin developed a facelift version of their DB9 model. It will be quite difficult to really tell the difference between the current model and the 2013 DB9 offered both in Coupe and Convertible variants. For the exterior, the carmaker offered a redesigned hood, new front fender air vents, front grille surround and bumper, the boot that includes a modified spoiler lip developed for the aerodynamics and also a new design for the rear bumper. In terms of interior, the specialists have used higher-quality materials and it is available in a 2+2 or 2-sear configuration.


The new 2013 Aston Martin DB9 features a reversion camera which is actually offered as standard on the US models, leather headlining and two Carbon Packs, both got the interior and the exterior trim. To handle the power, the engineers have provided a new Brembo braking system that includes Carbon Ceramic Matrix discs and calipers and it also features Adaptive Damping System available with three modes: Normal, Sport and Track. It will receive power from the AM11 5.9-liter V12 engine which is now capable of higher output. It can generate 510 horsepower up from 470 horsepower and 620 Nm of torque up from 600 Nm of torque. This amount of power enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.6 seconds and it can reach a top speed of 295 km/h. All these new elements turn the new facelift version of the model into a compelling new Sport GT.


The 2013 Aston Martin DB9 will be revealed at the Paris Motor Show on the 27th of this month. British and Western Europe customers will have the opportunity to buy the new DB9 starting next month. The carmaker established a starting price of GBP131.995 for the UK market, and $185.400 for the US.
