Default 2013 Aston Martin DB9 - First Spy Pics

Heights of the "family look" cult. With the new DB9 in place, I just can't tell apart the whole Aston line-up from the rear. For me, the new DB9 now looks strikingly similar to the Virage. Wonder what is the differentiating factor. Even the interior looks more or less unchanged to me.

The Aston Martin DB9 is nearly eight years old, so it's reassuring to know the company is working on an extensive facelift. Caught testing alongside a Ferrari 599 and Mercedes SLS AMG, the heavily camouflaged prototype has an evolutionary design with a prominent front splitter, a ventilated hood and Virage-style headlights. Out back, there's an aggressive rear fascia, a large decklid spoiler and a dual exhaust system. Our spies were also able to get a glimpse of the interior, but most of it is borrowed from the current model. This is likely just for testing purposes, but we can see a new steering wheel and a revised instrument cluster with larger gauges. No word on what will power the luxury coupe, but we wouldn't be surprised if the car was launched with a 6.0-liter V12 that produces upwards of 470 hp (477 PS / 350 kW).

As expected,not much difference,but this one hints at being a tad more aggressive! I like!

Ripping muscles even in camouflage! The flanks seemed to have gained more muscle than the current DB9. Chunky rear end and hood further amplify the tough stance.

I can't make out much about the rest of the car but those rims looks delicious!

^^ I find the rims to be a bit yesterday.

Anyway,a new DB9! The power figure will remain more or less the same because @490bhp you have the Virage.May be this one has got new/nicer interiors like the Virage;led treatment perhaps and those new rims of course.
