Exterior

Well, the previous version was revised, but the changes are minimal. There are coupe and convertible versions to choose from. From the front you can see the known bright Aston Martin grille with very noticeable side strakes. The hood is long and confident looking, especially when combined with the angry Bi-xenon headlights.

From the side, the first thing you will notice is the line of this car. The front and the back are harmoniously connected and there is absolutely nothing that one might want to change. Speaking of this we need to mention the standard 20-inch wheels and the doors that rise 12 degrees to help you enter or exit the DB9.

The back looks great. The lights are big but perfectly placed and shaped. The two exhausts are placed on the diffuser resembling section and the deck-lid spoiler really adds a lot to the appearance of this car.

Generally the DB9 combines the designs of the beefed up American supercars with the stylish exteriors of the European counterparts while still remaining a pure British Aston Martin that the purists will love. There are very few cars that can be said to look perfect. The DB9 is one of them.

Interior

Though the seating is said to be a 2+2, the rear seats offer no space for normal sitting. Still this can be useful as storage space and seating in case of an emergency. The front is where all the perks are. Loads of different trims such as piano black, mahogany or Tamo Ash; glass buttons, heated, power-adjustable, leather front seats, Bang and Olufsen stereo with 6 CDs, MP3 jack and a USB port, Bluetooth and an option of carbon fiber trim all give you the chance to adjust the interior to your liking.
