Aston Martin is prepping an all new platform that will form the bases of its next-generation DB9 and DBS luxury sports coupes. Not due out until 2015 at the earliest, a mid-cycle update is planned for next year with the DBS set to be the first to receive a list of aesthetic and mechanical upgrades.
Most noticeable will be styling updates, inspired by the new One-77 flagship, with a new single-opening front-fascia, hood vents and more angles. Also look for more sculpted sides, again a trait borrowed from the One-77.
Along with some interior updates, look for an extra 20 or so horsepower under the hood, bringing the total closer to 530-hp.
