Beneath the surface, DB9 features a new Adaptive Damping System (ADS), which provides enhanced ride comfort together with sharper handling when switched to Sport mode. The luxury vehicle also features new tyre pressure monitoring system, a revised Bluetooth microphone system and the addition of a new Double Apex alloy finish trim and Bang & Olufsen hi-fi options broaden the DB9's specification.

"The DB9 was the first car built at Gaydon adopting the VH architecture. It has evolved every year since, with significant changes including a power upgrade and successive reductions in CO2 emissions. The latest package of improvements goes further than ever, highlighting the DB9's qualities as a true sporting GT and underlining its role as the backbone car of our range.", commented Aston Martin's Product Development Director, Ian Minards.
