Although it’s billed as the Aston Martin DB9s “most significant programme of upgrades since its world debut in 2003″ (Aston Martin’s words, not ours), the DB9 facelift will probably be indistinguishable to everybody but those gearheads who still reside in the basement of their parents house (and there are many).
A new front end treatment, alloy wheels and rear tail lights make up the cosmetic changes, but underneath, a new Adaptive Damping System should help out with the handling. Aston Martin has already dropped the Sports Package for the DB9 due to the new dampers being able to provide the same level of performance. Tire pressure monitors, an improved Bluetooth system and a Bang & Olufsen stereo round out the interior upgrades.
