The DB9 is the third Aston Martin we’ve seen recently in testing while getting updated. Earlier, we spotted the slightly facelifted V8 Vantage Roadster and the Rapide racecar, and now the DB9 shows off its facelift on the Nürburgring.

The refresh includes, most notably, a new front bumper and a larger rear spoiler, taking cues from the DBS. Our photographer suggests the possibility of some changes below the sheet metal and on the interior, but we’ll have to wait until we can get a closer look to figure out what those are.

Aston Martin is preparing a smaller facelift for its DB9. As part of the new package are a new front bumper, sideskirts like the DBS and a bigger rear spoiler. So basically it’s looking more DBSish but a different spoiler/bumper. Maybe it will also get some smaller technical upgrades and changes to the interior.
