Aston Martin DB9
The most elegant sports GT with a clipped-accent gets refreshed. And what's good about it? Everything! On the exterior, the changes are minimal (well, it was already so good looking), although it is now subtly sharper than before.
The interior, which in Aston-Martin speak is 'inspired by luxury goods', is a blend of hand-stitched this and specially-developed that - no surprises there. Now, coming to the heart of the matter, the new AM11 V12 engine.
The 12-cylinder monstrosity produces 510 bhp and 63.2 kgm of torque and has, to its aid, dual variable valve timing, enlarged throttle bodies and a revised intake manifold, all of which ensure typically effortless motoring pleasure.
Adding to this is the new 'Gen4' VH version (to be seen on the incoming new Vanquish) of Aston Martin's Adaptive Damping System (ADS) which offers three driving modes: Normal, Sport and Track. And we haven't even told you about its James Bond legacy yet...
