New Aston DB9

Aston has given its most successful model a nip, tuck and a large helping of botox

Aston Martin DB9

This is the new Aston Martin DB9. And in new, we mean facelifted. And by facelifted, we mean sort-of-a-DBS-but-not-exactly.

Aston decided to shower its most successful model in history with a little fake tan and some cosmetic surgery, giving it a new front bumper, lower intake, headlight ‘bezels', re-styled sills and 20-inch diamond turned alloy wheels.

The result, we're sure you will agree, is that the DB9 looks 15.4 per cent more awesome. And to make sure it stays awesome when your pants are on fire, the DB9 now gets an ‘Adaptive Damping System' as standard offering better ride quality and sharper handling when in ‘Sport' mode.

You can order it from July with prices starting from £122,445 for the coupe and £131,445 for the drop-top. Now all it needs is the 510bhp V12 from the DBS...

Still the prettiest Aston? Speak now, lovers of cars.
