Aston Martin DB9 2012
NEW FOR 2012:
- Manual transmission and five-spoke forged alloy wheels no longer available
- Garmin satellite navigation system replaces existing hard disc drive navigation
- New beam-blade wipers
- Yellow brake calipers available
For 2012, the Aston Martin DB9 undergoes minor changes. All models now use a six-speed automatic transmission, with a stick shift no longer available. Silver remains the standard caliper colour, but yellow joins the black, red and graphite grey optional shades.
The DB9 is available as the Coupe or Volante (convertible). Both use a 6.0-litre V6 engine mated to a six-speed automatic transmission that includes manual shift mode and paddle-shift controls.
Features on both models include 19-inch aluminum wheels, automatic climate control, bright-finish grille, full-grain leather interior with walnut trim, three-position memory seats and mirrors, ten-way heated power seats, trip computer, cruise control, power-folding exterior mirrors, backup sensor, tire pressure monitoring system, six-CD stereo and umbrella with holder.
The Luxury Edition adds 19-inch ten-spoke silver diamond-turned wheels, magnum silver mesh pack, full-length piano black fascia trim, wood door trim, indented leather seat inserts
The Sports Edition adds black brake calipers, semi-aniline leather upholstery, and contrast stitching.
