Driven by Design
The New DB9 was not driven by legislation, but by design. A key principle: simplicity. We didn’t use heavy, bulky architecture and systems, we created discreet solutions, elegant solutions, Aston Martin solutions.
Authentic Aston Martin materials are now blended with state of the art technology. Take our patent pending ‘keystone’ front grille. Instantly recognisable – but now form meets function. On impact this front grille moves rearwards and brings forward the softer front structure of DB9, cushioning the impact on a pedestrian. Double octagonal rails are a new feature, designed to absorb impact energy.
We completely re-engineered our seatbelt technology to offer dual pre-tensioning and dual stage load limiting. We redesigned our seat build without compromising comfort.
