New for 2013
The DB9 gets a makeover for the 2013 model year with a more powerful 6.0-liter V-12 engine that’s now rated at 510 hp and 457 pounds-feet of torque, up from last year’s 470 hp and 443 pounds-feet of torque. All DB9s now come standard with carbon-ceramic brakes, and the car sees subtle exterior and interior design revisions.

ExteriorA long aluminum hood sits above a familiar Aston Martin grille, which has a bright finish. There are side strakes on the front quarter panels.
