(2010 - 2012)

Mid June 2010, perhaps a little earlier that might have been expected, AM announced a revised DB9 for the 2011 model year.  The car can easily be distinguished from it's predecessors by a new grille and front bumper with revised lower intakes, hexagonal-design mesh grilles, an upswept curve towards the back of the sill, clear rear light lenses (as previewed on the DB9LM), Magnum Silver meshes (also as first seen on the DB9LM) and 20-spoke diamond-turned wheels as standard (although the press picture, left, shows the new optional forged 19 inch 10 spoke diamond turned wheel), plus revised headlamp bezels.

The Adaptive Damping System, as first used on the DBS became available as standard equipment and thus the Premium Sports Pack was no longer offered as an option.

By the time the 2012MY DB9 entered production (from mid 2011), manual transmission was no longer available of the car even as an cost option. Also, in line with the new Virage, the car adopted the Garmin sat-nav and ‘beam blade’ wiper design, incorporating Bosch Aerotwin wiper blades.

The 2011/2012 MY DB9’s are considered quite rare as most buyers of the period bought either the DBS, Rapide or the latest Virage models instead. Manual transmission 2011MY DB9’s are extremely scarce indeed.
