Aston Martin Vanquish in Ceramic Grey

So it’s goodbye Virage and hello (revised) DB9. Well it is hardly a surprise since the Virage clearly struggled to make a good case for itself in a line-up of Astons that has been getting increasingly crowded with choice. The Virage therefore is confined, maybe temporarily, to the subs bench of Aston Martin model names and joins the recently banished DBS which was recently replaced with the new Vanquish.

Quite frankly, there is not a great deal that is new with the facelifted DB9 and most of the bodywork design cues come from the outgoing Virage anyway. There is no such thing as an ugly Aston these days so thankfully the DB9 will still attract the same drooling stares as all of the other models in the range…er correction, except the Cygnet of course.

To be fair there have been several changes in the areas of chassis and powertrain which make sure the car is keeping up with the Jones’s. Aston talks a lot about its ‘Gen4 VH Architecture’ which has been applied to the hardware of the new model and is shared with the latest versions of other Aston models. This is basically in-house jargon for the version of technological developments that are being added to AM cars today.

The engine is the 6.0 litre V12 which has been played with to produce a hefty 517 PS and 620 Nm of torque. No performance figures have been quoted in the company’s press release but it is likely that the DB9 will be smidgen quicker than the Virage it replaces.

Carbon Ceramic Matrix discs and calipers are fitted as standard on the DB9 with clever anti-fade and anti-judder technology. The Active Damping System (ADS) has also been enhanced to include three damping settings: Normal, Sport and Track. Somehow it is hard to imagine that many buyers will be opting to select Track mode unless they fancy a jaunt to Nurburgring or if they like to have their spines shattered on a typical B-road in the UK. At least you are given the choice now.

On the equipment side Aston Martin are offering their usual high levels of standard specification and you can create the car of your own individual choice via the on-line configurator which is now live. There is an impressive range of colours to choose from that are both conservative and vivid and lots more carbon fibre bits to pick from for both the exterior and interior of the DB9.

The 2013 DB9 is available to order now in both Coupe and Volante form with the first cars arriving in the UK in October 2012. Prices will start at £131995.

So the ‘will it or won’t it’ be the new DBS has finally been launched with the name Vanquish written large on its birth certificate. Considering this car is second only to the One-77 in terms of power output in Aston’s range it seems only fitting that the moniker ‘Vanquish’ should be selected for this model – it just sounds a lot more tasty.

Apart from some remodelling of the now-familar elegant flowing lines of most Aston Martins to conjure up a family resemblance to the One-77 it is in the engine department that AM claims it has made the most revisions. Interestingly though, every panel on the Vanquish is made out of carbon fibre too so the power to weight ratio is highly respectable on the new car. Cabin and boot space is also improved over the DBS.

The 6.0 V12 has a peak power output of 565 bhp which makes it Aston’s most powerful production model and currently only outdone by the limited-edition One-77 in the power stakes. 0-62 mph is achieved in 4.1 seconds and top speed is quoted as 183 mph which won’t break any records but Aston Martins have always been about high-speed, long-legged, mile-munching GT’s than hyperactive street racers. The revised V12 is also claimed to offer better economy and improvements on emissions compared to the previous engine.

It is always a time for anxiety when a manufacturer starts to dabble with a design that is universally accepted as ‘beautiful’. The Vanquish has managed to keep that recognisable Aston elegance with an added sprinkle of aggression in the new design which is likely to please the most critical of AM fans out there. We like it anyway.
