Report: Aston Martin working on new DB9 and Vantage

2009 Aston Martin DB9

Aston Martin is working on a revamp of its DB9 flagship supercar and the Vantage 2-seater for 2013/2014. However, instead of engineering all-new models, Aston will refresh the current range. Plans for a full revamp and shifting the models further upmarket have been shelved.

“We’re not going to start from scratch again when we already have experience with excellent cutting-edge technology,” an Aston source told AutoCar.

Design inspiration for the new DB9 will come from the One-77 supercar, however, styling will definitely be toned down. As for the Vantage, the model will get a more Aston Martin Rapide sedan styling. Inside, both models will get an upgraded interior.

A major focus for both models will be to reduce the overall curb weight. “There’s plenty more yet to come from the VH platform,” said one insider.
