Aston Martin will be reworking on the looks of the Vantage and DB9 that will be due in 3 or 4 years time. The restyling will somehow stretch the life of the vehicles as the car manufacturer postponed plans to totally revamp the models due to financial issues. The basic dimensions of the DB9 and the Vantage though will be untouched.
According to an insider, Aston Martin will not be going to kick off things from scratch but make most of the excellent technology that they have in their disposal. The facelifts will be give the two models new styling for the exteriors and will also overhaul the interiors.
Aston Martin has not come up with a final design yet but they hint that the DB9 will take some inspiration from the One-77 limited series. The new DB9 will also take the flowing lines on the air vents on its side just like the Rapide and the Vantage look.
The carmaker is also set on reducing the weight of the two vehicles by using lightweight materials. The current model of the DB9 tips the scale at 1760 kilos. The British car marques plan to trim it down to about 1500 kg.
There will also be engine upgrades for the DB9 tagged as VH500 and the Vantage coined as VH600. The focus of the tweaks will be on the improvement of fuel efficiency and reducing the carbon dioxide emissions rather than jacking up the performance.
