2011 Aston Martin DB9

The Aston Martin DB9 has made history after seven years that it was introduced. The 2011 model is constructed to be more stylish and has more enhanced equipments than the Aston Martin DB9 on 2003. The bumper is more sophisticated and compliments the bright shade of the radiator framework. Ahead of its rear wheels is a prominent curve. This supercar was named as the grand tourer since it is the combination of luxury, elegance, and a sporting character.

Changes

The 2011 Aston Martin DB9 is constructed to have a new bumper that has a lower intake and shaped like a hexagonal mesh.

The brake callipers are also changed to silver and there is an integrated standard clear light lenses in the rear. The damping system on the 2003 model that is passive has been replaced with the Adaptive Damping System (ADS). This system enhances a comfortable ride and the handling is sharper when changed to sporty mode.

This damping system provides a tight control over the body and you experience a quick response when manoeuvring. Other features added to the 2011 DB9 is a new monitoring system for tire pressure. The microphone system for Bluetooth is also changed. New added specifications are the hi-fi Bang & Olufsen options and the finish trim that is double apex alloy.
