Aston Overhauls DB9’s Looks

Is it a Virage, is it a DB9? You would be forgiven for thinking this is the now dead Aston Martin Virage, but no; it’s not. This is the updated DB9 and Aston are keen to tell you it’s still a DB9 – it’s just they have added some Virage looks into the mix.

Aston’s problem was that the DB9 had become quite the bore. As ridiculous as that sounds, the DB9, compared to the DBS and Virage, looked about as exciting as cheese on toast – something had to be done. And that’s why we’ve been given this new, ‘exciting’ DB9. It’s here to alter your opinion of the DB9.
 
Aston has also upped the power to 510bhp – which matches the DBS in the power stakes. So does that mean we’re about to see the DBS have a substantial power increase? Here’s hoping!
