Aston Martin DB9 gets nip and tuck

A face-lifted Aston Martin DB9 will go on sale next month, with a range of styling changes and a new adaptive suspension system.

The DB9's makeover comprises of a new front bumper, restyled radiator grille and air intake, styling changes to the headlights and rear lights, silver brake calipers and 20-spoke alloy wheels.

The suspension system has been updated, too. The DB9 now has an Adaptive Damping System (ADS), which Aston Martin says improves ride comfort in standart set-up and sharper handling when switched to Sport mode.

Tyre pressure monitoring, a revised Bluetooth microphone and Bang & Olufsen audio options complete the DB9's updates.

Along with the styling changes comes a price increase of just under 3000 for both the coupe and Volante (convertible) models. The DB9 Coupe will cost from 122,445, while the Volante starts at 131,445.
