DB9 Coupe ‘Sport Edition’

(2012) (2012MY Coupe and Volante) - North America and Australasia

From May 2012, the very last examples of the 2012MY DB9 were built as a numbered special edition known as the 'Sport Edition'. These were very similar to the previous  2011 'SE Sports' model except that they could be specified in any choice of Fast Track, Contemporary or DBS Special range of paint colours. Of particular note and unique feature of the Sport Edition was the unique 'pin-stripe' milling to the wheels. Production of the Sport Edition was completed by the time the factory closed down for the traditional summer holiday.
