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.
