Although it’s just a drop top of the DB9, this new convertible believes it can be just more than second wind to its coupe sibling. The front-end features Aston Martin’s signature front grille, which all Aston lovers have come to embrace from an Aston. As well as the signature front grille this new Aston also features the new front headlamp look which has come to be a very sleek look as well as an aggressive one for the Aston Martin cars. The front grille beautifully follows onto the hood where a cold air bump pushes out to let the big Aston engine breath more easily. A conventional side air port has been well designed into the side of the DB9 to let the engine’s hot air escape more easily and to add another new signature item from the Aston lineup. With its open-air top, the new DB9 Volante adds to a roomier look compared to its coupe sibling and appeals to the weekend cruiser types. From the front lights a perfect line follows along the side of the DB9 to the rear of the car where it disappears when it hits the rear spoiler.
The rear spoiler adds to the sport appeal of this car but comes off looking like a ducktail on the rear of the car, which this Aston could have done without. On the rear of the car the rear exhaust ports are well blended into the car and are well surrounded by its own rear vent, which is good for releasing all that excess exhaust heat from underneath the car. For how beautifully Aston Martin designed the rear, you would have thought they would have put better looking rear lights on the car. The rear lights look a little awkward with the steel imprint in the center, this is something the DB9 could have done without and should have gone circular for a more luxurious look. With its large fan base, the DB9 is sure to turn heads wherever it goes, because who can resist the lure of an Aston Martin automobile.
